Whenever it rained, my dog would dash underneath the bed and hide there. She could not stand them. Having a frightened dog on a rainy day is not out of the ordinary for many people. Pets frequently have a natural fear of thunderstorms. However, what we can most likely rely on is for our animals to be able to count on us at those times.
