One more thing to try, when your home with her and the wind kicks up and she starts to pant and pace, is laughing. I've been told that it works with fear of thunder, although not instantly but I've not had an opportunity to try it since Cassie's anxiety is mostly related to people and anyone being in her space. It makes sense to me since dogs "reads" our racial expression and laughter is about as far from fear as you get and that laughter probably produces a phermone of its own.
