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.
