Does your canine companion cringe when the weather gets bad? Have you had trouble controlling your dog when the crescendo of a lighting clap deafens the night? If your pooch is having storm anxiety, give these storm safety tips for dogs a try.

  • Stay calm. Your dog will take cues from your own body language and fears. If storms make you nervous, your dog will only be more nervous as they try to figure out why their people are upset. Keeping calm and acting like the storm is no big deal is important.
  • Be a buddy. Invite your dog to sit with you, and pet them, cuddle them, and let them know it’s okay. Speak in calm tones.
  • Play together. If your dog is distracted, they might forget all about the storm, or, even better, learn that storms can mean playtime!

For more information, eHow has even more great tips for keeping your dog calm during inclement weather.

It’s important to help your canine companion feel safe to weather the storms that come up during this blustery summer season. Use these storm safety tips for dogs and help your pup feel content and happy, no matter what the weather!

3 Reasons to Love Track Lighting at Lincoln Trinity Bluff

Our luxury apartments in Downtown Forth Worth feature many amenities, including track lighting. There’s plenty of reasons to love the track lighting at Trinity Bluff Urban Apartments! Here, listed below, are just a few reasons to love this amenity:

  • Spotlight: Arrange track lighting to spotlight a certain area of your apartment, such as a portrait or painting, collection display, television or anything else you feel like shedding literal light on! Aim light at walls, furniture and more.
  • High-Traffic Areas: Use track lighting to light up high-traffic areas, such as hallways or work areas. The living room or kitchen is another option.
  • Ceiling Lighting: Use track lighting to light up the ceiling! This is a different take on track lighting, though it is nonetheless a fun way to diffuse light. It bounces off the ceiling and is very effective when highlighting vaulted ceilings or those with an unusual, unique design.

Use these and other unique ideas in terms of track lighting! For more apartment living ideas, please visit the Trinity Bluff Urban Apartments community Facebook page.
