Thunderphobia: The fear of thunder or other loud noises.
Not highly prevalent in humans but most dogs will go ga-ga nuts during a thunderstorm. I've seen perfectly calm & even tempered dogs turn go all Cujo during a storm. Google Thunderphobic and you'll get lots of advice or suggestions on how to keep your dogs. Shadow was frantic whenever a storm was approaching. He never got destructive, but he did burrow in the closet behind the shoe rack trying to hid from the noise and light show. Also wasn't a big fan of fireworks. Claire and Grayson are different. I can tell whenever a storm is approaching long before we hear it. Had a big storm yesterday blow through town yesterday afternoon and both dogs were not happy. Both dogs will start to pant and pace and get antsy/nervous. Grayson is a pacer. He will walk back & forth throughout the house looking for some place to hide. Trainers will tell you not to coddle the dogs and make a big deal of it but I will try to turn up the radio or TV to drown out the thunder. Claire on the other hand pretty much just slinks off to a dark corner or under the bed until all the hoopla is over. She pretty much lies in the closet with her head in the corner under my shoe rack.
For me, I like the thunder & lightening but it really depends on where you are. Sitting at home or at the office and watching a major thunderstorm is nice. Way back in my Army days, I would be out in the field when a storm blew in and it was "interesting" to ride out a thunderstorm parked in a giant metal box on treads (aka tank). The most "exhilarating" time was back in '04 when we were out on the trail at Philmont in New Mexico. Sitting in a nylon backpacking tent on top of Mount Phillips at 11,657 feet during a wild lightening storm is one ride you'll not soon forget.
And Lois still playing hard to get.
