Neka is not really afraid of thunder, I'd called it concered .....

She doesn't panic or anything, but if she is outdoors and she hears loud thunder she want to go in the house. I think it comes from when she was a stray.

Once she is in the house, she fine!!! I've been working with her on this by taking her out on the front porch when there are storms coming. I'm teaching her that thunder is OK by keeping her calm and giving her treats when she doesn't react to the thunder. It's been working well as she now is more comfortable with the distant thunder, but she's still nervous when a close one hits .... The training is still ongoing .....
