Thundershirt uses gentle hugging to calm your dog. With its patented design, Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful or overexcited. 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 hundreds of thousands of dogs around the world and is recommended by thousands of veterinarians and trainers. Thundershirt helps keep animals calm so they are more comfortable in situations that were once frightening.
Before putting ThunderShirt on your dog for the first time, offer a small food treat to your dog using the folded ThunderShirt as a “plate”. Dogs typically become more comfortable and trusting of something that “brings” them food or anything that they associate with food. So this is an easy little trick to quickly create a positive association with ThunderShirt for your dog.
Next, simply follow the “Fitting Instructions.” Leave ThunderShirt on for 5-10 minutes. Following these simple instructions allows you to learn exactly how to use ThunderShirt while the dog is calm and helps to avoid the risk that she might begin to associate ThunderShirt with what bothers her. It can also be beneficial to put ThunderShirt on every 4 to 8 weeks in the absence of anxiety.
