Storm Defender Patented relief for your pets from thunderstorm phobia

About Us

Tom Critzer was desperate to help his dog, Cody, overcome his storm phobia. Cody's reaction to thunderstorms would begin before there were outward signs of a storm or heat lightning. If he was inside the house, Cody would pant, pace, continually bark and claw at wallpaper in fear. Once while outside during a storm, Cody panicked and ripped through the canvas on a camper.

Tom, with degrees in psychology and electrical engineering, began to research. He came across a theory that the static charge before and during thunderstorms was the trigger that upset dogs. He developed a cape with a special metallic lining that discharges the dog's fur and shields him from the static charge buildup.

His patented invention, the Storm Defender cape, has since helped thousands of dogs with an over 95% success and customer satisfaction rate.

Storm Defender, LLC continues as a family business with the goal of helping dogs and their owners throughout the world.

Storm Defender, LLC is based out of Cincinnati, Ohio.
