Do your pets behave differently when there's bad weather not yet arrived but on the way?

Yes mine does. She knows when there’s a thunderstorm coming. She’s always been afraid of them. The thunder shirt does nothing to calm her. She trembles and paces. I try to calm her any way I can, which isn’t easy.

Both are rescue dogs.  One shakes, the other is indifferent.  The one who shakes was loose for a few months---that's probably a factor. 

We have thunder shirts for both. 

The one who shakes is becomming more calm with time and support.

Mine don't, but my brother's does. His dog will start panicking about an hour before. Poor thing has to take Xanax.

Awe. Do you suppose the pup was coddled during its first few storms instead of letting it deal with it alone. (?) Heard this has an impact on how well they deal with it later on.

No. My brother has two female litter mates. So they have been raised the exact same way. One is extremely fearful and the other isn't bothered at all.
