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:

        I use this for thunder,fireworks and believe it or not ...fear of flying bugs..
        the last one I recently discovered..she was stung by a bee when she was a puppy and has always been hypervigilant when it comes to bugs in the house..but it recently escalated and Im not sure why ..she would pace and pant and try to get me to pick her up..I tried the coat and she went right to sleep... I love it .. When I get the coat out, she gets excited!

          I wasn't sure if it would work or not but I had nothing to lose. My Jack Russell is my life since my husband died in December, and the storms and fireworks were really upsetting her, to the point she was peeing all over me and the house. I tried the shirt and. Oh my she looks forward to me putting it on her, it just settles her down so much. The best item I purchased in a long time. Please use it!!!

              Comments about Thunder Shirt Thundershirt for Dogs:

              It has been a useful tool to help, my dog who at 4 years of age, has newly developed anxiety in certain situations. I did not want to sedate or otherwise medicate her these times - such as thunderstorms or fireworks.

              I implemented a multi-pronged approach: music therapy, clicker training, and the Thundershirt. The Thundershirt seemed to work almost immediately to lessen my girl's anxiety.

                Comments about Thunder Shirt Thundershirt for Dogs:

                one of my two ShiTzus is terrified of thunder, fireworks and motorcycle noise.
                He has actually had seizures before getting Thundershirt.
                when neighborhood kids set off fireworks it is difficult to get on because of his shaking. When on he calms down.
                When thunder is expected I put it on and he never even starts to shake.
                He didn't stop kissing me during storm because I believe he realized I finally was able to help him

                  Was a little doubtful if it really worked! Received the ThunderShirt and it worked really well on our Dacshund when we had some bad thunder and lightning. He was calm and contented to lay othe floor. Before he would hide behind us.I recommend this to anyone, who has a skitich dog.

                    Today was the first time that my Jack Russell didn't freak out during a thunder storm. After putting the Thunder Shirt on him he laid down next to me and was content. Usually he runs all over the house trying to hide and then come out and bark then back to trying to hide. I just couldn't do anything for him to calm him down.

                      My dog is high strung,anxious,suffers tremendously from our times of seperation. She was initially stunned by the vest but I am looking at it as a hug. It did not solve our issues but seems to help alittle. She still trembles and suffers, even more so even tho I have eliminated the use of her crate, as to not compound her difficulties.

                        My bischon has terrible anxiety to all noises and barks non-stop. I was to the point of taking him to the vet for medication, but I figured to at least give the Thundershirt a try. Well IT WORKS! It was easy to put on, and you can see him turn into a ball of mush. It's crazy, I know, but you have to try it to believe it! Amazing products. Thank you Thunder Shirt for keeping the peace in our home, the humans are less stressed now too!

                        Please make more colors.
