Some people believe that the change in air pressure exacerbates the fear of thunderstorms, which means that a desensitization program involving recordings of thunderstorms can be only so helpful. Nonetheless, a careful program of desensitization to loud noises could help a lot.

Our former trainers had good success with this program and recommended the recordings: http://www.starfire-rapport.com/noiseshy.htm Of course you would need a very good stereo to reproduce the loud noises properly.

I agree with Bob (in the thread he linked) that it's best to implement this protocol with the help of an experienced trainer or (better) behaviorist.
