Thundershirt is an excellent treatment for most types of dog anxiety and fear issues. The Thundershirt creates a gentle, constant pressure that has a dramatic calming effect. Thundershirt can be used on its own without training for less serious issues or in combination with a behavior modification program.

Thundershirt is also a very useful tool for managing excitability or hyperactivity with strangers, on the leash, or in a training environment. Dogs often become excited or distracted during training sessions, especially if in a multi-dog classroom environment. Thundershirt’s calming effect helps a dog to focus (or refocus) his/her energies in a more constructive direction by reducing excitability and reactivity, allowing training to be more effective.

Whether for thunder, fireworks, or any other sound, Thundershirt can help your dog’s noise anxiety. If you are aware of a noise trigger coming (e.g. thunderstorm on its way), put your Thundershirt on your dog prior to your dog becoming anxious. It is also fine to put Thundershirt on AFTER your dog has become anxious; you will still see good results.

Separation anxiety can be an extremely challenging issue to manage and is often very stressful. The use of Thundershirt alone has eliminated or significantly reduced symptoms such as excessive barking/whining, destructive chewing, severe shaking, panting, indoor elimination, destructive clawing, shaking, panting, excitability, vomiting and even seizures.

In most cases, it is fine to leave your dog in her/his Thundershirt for extended periods of time.

With over an 85% success rate, why not try Thundershirt for your dog’s anxiety, fear or training issue?

Available in Heather Grey & Blue Rugby color.

How to Put It On

Before putting Thundershirt on your dog for the first time, try offering a small amount of food to your dog using the Thundershirt as a "plate". Dogs typically become more comfortable and trusting of something that "brings" them food or anything that they associate with food. So this is an easy little trick to quickly create a positive association with Thundershirt for your dog.

Lay the Thundershirt over your dog’s back and secure with the chest and torso straps. The Velcro fasteners make Thundershirt very adjustable to many different body shapes.

Thundershirt comes in seven different sizes from XXS to XXL. Each size is designed to be very adjustable to accommodate different dog shapes and still be easy to put on.

PLEASE NOTE: We highly recommend you measure your dogs chest size to determine which size you need. If stuck in between sizes, we suggest you go with the smaller of the two.

Thundeshirt's return policy allows for you to open the product and test it out on your pet for up to 30 days. If you're not satisfied, return the Thundershirt in its original condition within the 30 day limit.

    Comments about Thunder Shirt Thundershirt for Dogs:

    It seems this year there were 3 days of fireworks in the area. Lucky us....NOT! Decided to try the thundershirt I bought for my dog over two years ago on the second night. We had forgotten we bought it. What a difference. She actually was not shaking and even fell asleep. We couldn't believe it! From now on during storms and fireworks she will be dressed in her snappy Thundershirt.

    bad product

    Comments about Thunder Shirt Thundershirt for Dogs:

    This product restricts the dog's ability to breathe, therefore, they are less active. Not being able to breathe properly is not a good feeling.

    Comments about Thunder Shirt Thundershirt for Dogs:

    When we moved very close to a school stadium we had no clue they would use fireworks for every touchdown or Forth of July for the whole town. Worse yet they are directed straight at my home. It's beautiful to me but terrifying to my German Shepherd. Thank heavens someone saw the need & made it for the countless dogs & cats each year. My cat does not seem to be bothered by the sounds that set my dog into hysteria. But am glad they are available if needed.

        Comments about Thunder Shirt Thundershirt for Dogs:

        I do not want to leave a bad review for this product because I believe it works on many dogs. Unfortunately it just did not work for my dog. My dog is almost 12 and the older he gets, the higher his anxiety level gets. He does not want to sit still in the evening and is constantly worried about what my cat is doing and lunging at her. I seriously think my dog is just too stubborn to allow this product to help him.

        It is easy to put on, however, my dog does not sit still when I put anything on him, therefore, it was still a challenge for me. My dog is a beagle/pug mix so his body is pretty short and I found it difficult to adjust the straps well enough so that it was not covering my dogs boy-parts. I admit, I feel like it should be made with more consideration to male dogs.

        Anyway, I do not think this product is bad, and I trust it works on many dogs. It is worth a shot if you are desperate. You can always return it for a refund if it doesn't work!

            This has been very good for a dog we have who was terrified of thunder. It doesn't cure it, but it help a lot.

                Comments about Thunder Shirt Thundershirt for Dogs:

                I was hesistant about this until I tried it on my dog. My pooch has a major aversion to thunderstorms and fireworks. This cuts his anxiety by about 80%. We took a few weeks to get him used to it. Since he likes wearing clothes, his adjustment to it was easy.

                As a result, we got one and gave it as a gift to a Cocker Spaniel friend. He loves it, too, and his mom says he is less anxious during fireworks. Definitely gives dogs the much need hug they need during periods of stress.

I love it .. When I get the coat out, she gets excited!

                  Comments about Thunder Shirt Thundershirt for Dogs:

                  My dog has serious anxiety and it generally manifests itself as hyperactivity, excessive barking and aggression around other dogs. I was running out of ideas but my dog trainer told me to give the thundershirt a chance. I didn't think anything could calm this guy down, but this really does and the effect is instantaneous. No more barking at every sound, no more constant running and jumping to investigate every door and window... I haven't had a chance to try it when I leave the house yet nor have I tried it when he's around other dogs but if his behavior in the apartment is any indication, it will make a difference. If you feel like there is nothing more you can do for your dog, give this a chance.
