Karma is our 8 year old Lab. She is a rescue from New Orleans, Louisiana.
As with most rescues, Karma came to us with issues. She had severe separation anxiety and still has severe anxiety in thunderstorms.
We have learned that she needed a ‘safe place’ in our house that did not have any windows and where hearing the clap of thunder was as minimal as possible. Trying to distract her from the storms using items such as a treat filled Kong and the Treat Ball we sell at Ren’s seemed to help a bit.
The Thundershirt is also a great option to help, as well as some of the calming solutions we sell for both cats and dogs in our stores. A radio in the bathroom at a high volume is also a great trick. All of these combined helps to make the storms a little less stressful for Karma.

Because she is a pup from the south, Karma is not a fan of the cold. She can always be seen sporting her scarf or her sweaters when out and about.
