Living in South Florida, we are never too far away from the sound of thunder. It can be a very quiet sound if it happens way off in the middle of the everglades. It can also be a very scary thing if it happens right over our house. It even scares us and we know what it is and why it is occurring.
Now, let’s think about our dog for a moment. First, we need to understand that their hearing is far more sensitive than ours. When we whisper, they can clearly hear what we are saying. Now, let’s think about a thunder clapper over or near our house. Wow. That can be very loud and even hurtful to them. Along with that, they don’t understand what is going on and why it is occurring.
