This saved our lives. Literally. We had a very highly anxious rescue dog, and we were having such a difficult time with her. She would bark all the time, itch and bite herself constantly, have accidents on the floor. She was so scared and nothing would relax her. Then we found Thundershirt. It calmed her so much! She went from being scared all the time, to really quieting down, relaxing on the couch and even going to the dog park. When she had Thundershirt on she was a whole new dog. Since we bought our original Thundershirt we have bought 3 new ones. Each lasted us about 6 months (that's with constant use). Although it says to only use a certain number of hours, we used almost around the clock. It worked for us, and we never had any issues. We would take off for baths, to wash the shirt, and when she went to the groomers. I think for the price 6 months was a good amount of time, and I was happy with the quality. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a way to help an anxious dog!The only con was that the velcro got a lot of her fur stuck in it and it was very difficult to get out. I do not know how that would be avoidable, but I still say it was well worth the money, a total life saver, and I highly recommend it!
I highly, highly recommend this Thunder Shirt for pets scared of fireworks!! My dog has never been scared of thunder storms, but fireworks send her into shivers so strong I worry it could put her into a seizure. I had this delivered a couple days before the 4th of July and I'm so grateful I had it shipped overnight! As soon as the fireworks started, I put this shirt on her and it took about 45 minutes for it took kick in, but once it did, I'm still baffled to share that she was flipped over on her back, belly up in the air sleeping so sound she was snoring. I actually wondered if there was some kind of lavender oil or calming oil in the jacket, because I was so impressed by her sleeping through the fireworks.Even more impressive yet, the following day AND on the 4th of July, I didn't need to put the jacket on her. I'm not sure why that is, but after her shaking every night for nearly a week before getting the jacket, I'm not going to question it, I'm just going to spread the word that this jacket is a MUST try!! If it doesn't work, you can return it. What have you got to lose??
Got this in a medium for my (very petite) Pit Bull/Lab mix with noise sensitivity and separation anxiety. Even though I work in a kennel and am constantly around people's dogs that these jackets work for, I was still incredibly skeptic because my dog has fits so bad she breaks out in hives and claws herself open. But, I've been putting it on her every morning since the day it arrived because it works better than anything else I've tried. She's finally comfortable and not running back and forth crying, hiding behind the couch, or digging at her neck when something upsets her. It works perfectly. Thank you, 5 stars. However packaging is only 1 because the box was crushed and open on one side.ADVICE for people about to order!! Google measurement for Thundershirt and measure around the chest like you're strapping your dog into a seat belt. Saved me from accidentally getting a large.
This vest is simply amazing!! I have a 2 year old Rottweiler that is hyped out of her mind 24/7. We have tried OTC meds and nothing worked. The vet prescribed prescription meds that were going to cost $25.00/week to try to calm her down. We gave up just figuring this is her personality and we have to deal with it. Saw this online and didn't believe it would help but I figured what is another $45.00 to throw at the problem. From the first few minutes I put it on her she just stood there like a statue. Every morning she spins in her crate starting before the sun rises until we let her out. Today, I had to get her up at 9:00 a.m. She was waiting patiently for me which NEVER happens. I don't know how or why it works. I plan on buying 2 more because she is going to wear these 24/7. Beats putting her on meds...
This is the third Thundershirt I have purchased for my dog. She doesn't have Thunderstorm phobia, but she DOES have anxiety, and the swaddling effect of these shirts definitely help to calm her. I also use them to help keep her warm outdoors on our walks when the weather is cold.She had major surgery on February 1 and it was cold that morning, so I placed the Thundershirt on her when we went to the hospital. Later, the surgeon recommended to keep the shirt on her following the surgery to place compression on the wound and to help keep her from pulling at the bandages and the sutures. It worked great.She's a black and white dog and she gets so many compliments from the neighbors when she's wearing this bright pink Thundershirt. I also really like that it has the reflective patches on it for additional safety when we're out walking at night.(Note that it took a few tries to get her accustomed to wearing the very first Thundershirt, but now she readily comes for me to put one on her.) I highly recommend Thundershirts, and am pleased that the quality and fit have improved from the first one I bought about 3 years ago.)
