Product Description

 

The best solution for anxiety in dogs.

  • Training Anxiety

  • Hyperactivity

  • and more

How It Works

With its patent-pending design, Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful or over-excited. Based on surveys completed by over two thousand customers, over 80% of dogs show significant improvement in symptoms when using Thundershirt. Thundershirt is already helping tens of thousands of dogs around the world, and is recommended by thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers.

As for WHY Thundershirt’s gentle pressure works to calm a dog, experts such as Dr. Temple Grandin believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years. For example:

  • TTouch dog trainers use pressure to address a wide variety of anxieties.
  • Veterinarians use pressure to relax cattle when they are administering vaccinations.
  • People with autism use pressure to relieve their persistent anxiety.
  • Children with certain behavioral problems use pressure shirts and weighted vests to relax and focus.
  • Parents use swaddling to calm an inconsolable newborn infant.

Until now, there just hasn’t been a well-designed, inexpensive pressure wrap commonly used for dog anxiety. Thundershirt is changing that! Thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers now recommend Thundershirts for their anxiety cases.

Testimonials

“Overwhelmingly, Thundershirt has been a success with our cases for thunderstorms and fireworks.”

Dr. Mark Guise, DVM
Lockwillow Avenue Animal Hospital
Harrisburg, PA

“I have used Thundershirt with my own dog and have seen a real improvement with her fear of thunderstorms and other loud noises. I am now recommending Thundershirt to my clients with good results.”

Dr. Joanne Baldwin, DVM
Cardinal Animal Hospital
Richmond, VA

“As a Physical Therapist and Tellington TTouch Instructor, I frequently teach about the effectiveness of pressure wraps to reduce anxiety and fear responses in dogs. The Thundershirt is the perfect tool for calming dogs who suffer from noise phobia, anxiety, and other fear related issues. My personal experience using the Thundershirt with my own dogs has been very positive, and I happen to live in Oklahoma where storms are both frequent and dramatic! Thank you for providing this valuable product to help dogs cope with these environmental stressors.

Kathy Cascade, PT

“ Pressure wraps are an effective, non-invasive way to help dogs to feel more at ease. I like the Thundershirt especially because of its soft material, easy-to-apply Velcro closures, and low cost. I recommend this product to my training clients for thunderstorm phobias, nail trims, and a variety of other fears such as sounds, riding in the car, and generalized fear of walking outdoors. I wish the Thundershirt had been around when my thunder-phobic German Shepherd was alive. I’m glad dogs everywhere can now reap its benefits.“

  1. Wow, I can't beleive the difference

    Posted by Jennifer Smith on 8th Jul 2014

    I have a highly anxious dog. He's big, and when he gets going, he can really be in your face.

    A friend told me about Thundershirt and put her one on my dog. My dog just stood there. He was soooo chilled. I really wondered what the heck is going on here! I mean, this is too weird.

    Really works for me and my dog.


  2. tightness of shirt is important

    Posted by Rachel from USA on 17th Dec 2011

    I want to mention that the tightness of the thundershirt has a direct impact on my dog. When there is a storm, my dog becomes alarmed, seeks contact with us, and pants and trembles.

    Now I can put on the thundershirt and see an obvious reduction in symptoms. The trembling and panting stop, he lays down (but does not have to be on top of us!) and often puts his head down.

    Of course, I always try to pair putting on the shirt with lots of yummy treats and trick requests to help reduce the storm anxiety.

    If my dog is still panting or trembling after this ritual, I often find that I do not have the shirt tight enough. And after re-binding, I can see an obvious reduction in anxiety (although he does need a few treats to remind him he can walk even with the compression of the shirt :-)
