    That can definitely be the case JM. My dogs can tell the difference between TV and real-life thunder. But Jose` doesn't seem to get the difference between real-life dogs and horses and TV dogs and horses. LOL. He totally growls and grumbles at TV dogs....actually more so than real life ones. :D

    But I have heard of other dogs where that CD and the gradual conditioning have helped. So, I would think it's worth a try. I would see if there's any "guarantee" so you can get your money back if it doesn't help. I imagine the CD could be expensive. But I don't know for sure.

    I just wanted to update that I bought Peanut a thundershirt and it's working. He's not as nervous and not shaking uncontrollable when storms come. He actually loves the thundershirt and looks cute in it. It's definitely worth a try for those with pets having problems dealing with the weather.

    Didn't read through this thread, but I would like to add on the tight tee shirt front, although the thundershirt never did anything for Enda's sound sensitivity, Noods became a thunder phob little over a year after we brought him here. I bought this shirt for him at Target just because I though it was adorably fitting, and what do you know? The $2.50 shirt actually helps him during storms. Not saying it'll work for everyone, but it's worth a cheap try if you've got a smaller dog (there's always small up to medium size doggie tee's on the sale rack at our Petsmart!).
