The Thundershirt is a vest that fits snugly around your dog’s body. The pressure from the vest has a relaxing effect on the dog. The ThunderShirt is recommended by experts to help calm anxious dogs. It is also highly effective in situations where your dog is afraid, for example during thunder storms, fireworks or while travelling. The ThunderShirt often calms dogs straight away, although some dogs may take some time to get used to wearing it.
How does the ThunderShirt work?
The ThunderShirt applies a gentle, steady pressure on the dog’s body that has a soothing effect on the nervous system. This type of pressure is also used to calm babies (swaddling) or people with anxiety disorders. The ThunderShirt has proven to be very effective at reducing anxiety in dogs. In a survey of over 1,000 users, more than 85% of the dogs were less anxious when wearing this vest.
