First report on Storm Defender

The inside of the storm defender is a metallic fabric, and is supposed to dissipate the static that comes along with thunderstorms.  

We are in the middle of the storm season, and so I decided to take the storm defender with me until the season is past.  I waited  yesterday and checked the weather and no one was predicting storms, but after going for a walk and a drive, I went home and was working on my quilt, when suddenly I heard loud thunder. It was about 9 pm!
 I got out the storm defender and put it on Fleur, and she stopped trying to dig through the floor of my motorhome, and laid down on the floor and didn't move.

About 10:30 pm as soon as the first storm moved on, the next storm arrived so I did not take the cape off, and again she stayed calm.

That storm passed, I was tired and wanted to go to bed, but then another thunderstorm arrived, ( it was 11:15 pm ) and since I wanted to watch Fleur's reaction,  I stayed up.  She relaxed on the floor again!

Finally the storm passed about 12:00 am, and I was headed for bed!  I decided to take the two greyhounds outside, when another  thunderstorm arrived!  Again Fleur didn't care!

Approx 1:30 am I was falling asleep in my chair, and the last storm( so I thought) passed over, and then the
next storm came along about 2:15 am.  I was so tired and no longer had the ability to care about the storm defender jacket.  

I went to bed, Fleur lifted her head and said "you look tired, Mom".
I agreed with her and went to bed with my cat on my ribs, and Fleur resting on the floor in the living room calm as a cucumber.

Power, of course was "very scared" and I thought I would show you how he reacted to the long series of storms!

This is a daytime photo but this is exactly how he appeared throughout the storms!

So, as for now, the STORM DEFENDER works!


  1. Glad to see it worked. I did read that maybe it was the static electricity causing them to be freaked out. Where did you get this?


  2. So glad the defender is helping Fleur so much.

    Get's rid of static.....................think I need some of that metallic fabric as I am always getting little shocks off things:)

  3. That's a great review! I know someone who will appreciate it, for sure, and will pass on your link. I'm happy Fleur will be calmer now when it storms like that. :)

  4. I'm glad it's working so well for you! I'm starting to wonder if Power and Flattery could be somehow related! lol

  5. When we had a couple of storm scaredy dogs, we used Thundershirts on them, and after a while, they seemed ok with storms, and didn't even need it anymore. I hope that Fleur won't need it soon too.

  6. I have a friend who uses those for one of her dogs. She says it really works too.
