Also, he can very easily tell the difference between real thunder and thunder from a TV show or CD. Are these CD's made to be more "realistic", perhaps? I just know that I can have my surround sound up pretty loud on my TV and if there's loud lightening and thunder on the movie/show I'm watching - he could care less and sleeps through it.
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.
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.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams 1776
