My dog is almost 13. He has been on a downward decline with arthritis, dementia, and anxiety. Our evenings were filled with anxious barking, pacing, and whining. I tried everything--prescription medications, massages, walks, foot pads, etc. Finally decided to try a thundershirt. None of our dogs have ever been scared of rain or storms or separation so I'd never thought of it. It was like a miracle! I put the shirt on him and he seemed like he just instantly felt safer and more secure. He slept all night! The first day I kept it on him overnight and then took it off and when evening came he started his barking and pacing, but I put that thundershirt back on him and he was so happy! It's been such a gift for the whole family. I love him so much and I was worried he was suffering. We will help him feel better as long as we can. Thundershirt will be an important part of that. Thank you!
I didn't see how this would actually help calm a scared young puppy, but needed to find something to help her relax when in situations she felt uncomfortable in. This helped! I followed the manufacturer's directions for introducing the jacket to her and I was surprised at how quickly she accepted it. Then Independence Day with all the "bangs and pops" came. I kept her indoors with everything closed, but she only relaxed when I put the Thunder-shirt on her. I like the way this is designed, very adjustable, and all self-sticking fastenings are either covered, or expose only the soft side of the tape. That's not true of all brands, and was important to me because this wraps around areas of tender skin. More expensive than some other anxiety jackets, but so worth the money! Good quality product, well made, attention to detail, and it works!
Your results may vary but my frightened pupper was visibly less agitated with 4th of July fireworks and lightning and thunder storms that followed. Due to neighbors behind me lighting them off from their back door, that caused her to spaz, but that was a visual as well as a sound.When inside the house, she sat patiently. I was amazed.The fabric is cotton-y like a t-shirt and has a lot of dangly Velcro straps. Once worn, you can infinitely adjust to your dogs comfort needs. It's as thin as a t-shirt, so if you need to harness to transport into a car or outside, it has no hindrance, just put the harness over the ThundershirtYour results may vary.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Five stars because it really helps my dog. She is a scaredy shepherd. Fireworks, loud noises, thunderstorms, and electronic chirping all turn her into a quivering, senseless mess. With this shirt on, she doesn’t try to bolt out doors or hide in weird places. She sticks close to me and stops shaking, which is a huge improvement. In fact, when she hears a scary noise she heads straight to the closet I keep it in. I only wish the Velcro were sewn on a little better because it is peeling off. I can fix it with my sewing machine but that’s not the point.
I was pretty skeptical that this thunder shirt would do what it claims, but after reading tons of reviews I decided that I would give it a chance. I have a three year old Dutch Shepherd who started having anxiety issues after our other dog died. She got so bad at one point that she had to be medicated. She would refuse to go outside, get off her bed, go for walks, or even eat. She seemed terrified of something in our back yard and refused to go out there. Her seperation anxiety got really bad as well. She could tell when we were getting ready to leave and she would pace, start to heavy pant, and whine. I put her behind a gated area when we leave because I don't trust her in the house alone (previous accidents in the house).As soon as the thunder shirt arrived I put it on her. I was afraid I'd have to fight to get her to wear it but she didn't mind it one bit. Within several minutes her mood changed. She was calm. No pacing, panting, or anxious behavior at all. My mind was blown. This thing actually works. If your dog is anxious or nervous GO BUY THIS. I highly recommend this product. Thank you thundershirt.Update:after my dog wore this for about a week, she went back to being stressed out and anxious. I was hopeful that this would help but sadly it didn't work out for her. Keep in mind, she has a more severe case of anxiety than most, so it might still help your dog. Sadly sending it back.
