HOW DOES IT WORK?
The design creates a gentle pressure on the torso, like swaddling an infant. This gentle pressure provides a calming effect. To use the Thundershirt, no training is necessary. Why medicate when you can use the Thundershirt.
Most dogs will show good results the first time wearing it. For some, it may take two to three times using it before you see good results. For severe anxiety, you may need to work with a behavioral specialist along with the Thundershirt.
I bought my dog a Thundershirt because she suffers from separation anxiety. She would howl and whine while I was away. I put the Thundershirt on her at least 30 minutes before I leave, because I don’t want her to associate the Thundershirt with me leaving.
An improvement was seen the first time she wore it. Starting out, I left her alone for a few minutes at a time, then I would increase the time that I was gone. I am amazed at the difference it makes with her anxiety, and she loves to wear it! Not everyone’s experience will be the same as mine.
A friend of mine has a dog that is terrified of thunderstorms. He would shake and tremble with fear during thunderstorms. Then he got a Thundershirt and his world changed. The moment his owner put the Thundershirt on him, he immediately became relaxed and calm. Now he is a happy dog during storms wearing his Thundershirt.
I recommend the Thundershirt if your dog suffers from anxiety or fear. It has been proven to help 80% of dogs and cats with anxiety and fear. Try the Thundershirt for you and your dog.
