Her secret sauce includes extensive discussions with and involvement of the whole family. Cost: $125 for the first visit; discounts available for additional sessions, if necessary.

How to: Calm a dog during a thunderstorm

“Put him in a ThunderShirt ($39.95, thundershirt.com), a snug-fitting garment that can make him feel less anxious. If climbing into a bathtub or closet seems to help, let him do it. And if all else fails, talk to your vet about medication.” —Rendy Schuchat, owner of Anything is Pawzible
