Default I can't even pet my dogs without shocking them due to the dry air. Help!

What would you recommend? We moved from damp Oregon to dry, desert Idaho. It's so bad here that I can't even pet my pups without shocking them 95% of the time. It makes them jump back, and makes me jump too, cuz it sort of hurts a little. My dogs want me to love them, but how can I when I hurt them every time I go to touch them. I was thinking about adding a humidifier to their sleeping area, but that won't help when they're outside during the day, or will it? What are my options? I pet them anyway, but it's hit or miss if I'm going to shock them. I don't want them to NOT want me to pet them anymore.
