Our pup is Remington out of Stella and Grimm 2016. A little over 2 yrs old. We live in South East Texas and have quite a few storms. This scared behavior only started about 6 months ago and has accelerated over time. We donít act like itís a big deal or encourage the behavior but that hasnít helped. Weíve tried playing with her or taking her outside to show her itís ok. She is not just shivering in a corner but pacing, breathing heavy, trying to jump in our laps or hiding behind the couch. Iíve given her a safe place (in the bathtub) and sheíll stay a little while but never actually settles. We just tried the Thunder Shirt once so far and it didnít help a lot. I thought maybe thereís another way to calm her along with the shirt.
