THUNDERSHIRT FOR DOGS:

Thundershirt for dogs is a natural calming solution that may help reduce anxiety in dogs in a drug free way. Just like cuddling an infant the Thundershirt for dogs applies gentle, constant pressure to the dog to calm anxiety, fear and over-excitement issues. The Thundershirt for dogs may be of benefit for the following anxiety situations, fireworks, thunderstorms, separation anxiety, travel and visits to the vet etc.

 

Using a Thundershirt to treat a behavioural issue will only be providing relief to the symptoms of the behavioural issue and will not be fix or treat the underlying cause of the behavioural issue. Get help early from a professional Animal Behaviorist. 

TIPS & TRICKS FOR USING YOUR THUNDERSHIRT:

The ThunderShirt is easy to use and requires no training. We have some tips for introducing the ThunderShirt to your pet to achieve maximum calm.

  • Try ThunderShirt on your pet the first few times when they’re feeling calm and loved

  • Put ThunderShirt in your laundry basket, so it starts to smell familiar

  • Give treats to your pet on the ThunderShirt like a plate so they associate it with positive things

  • Put ThunderShirt in your pet’s bed or crate and give them lots of snuggles

  • During a calm period, try the ThunderShirt on your pet for 1-2 hours. Engage with treats, plays and more snuggles

  • Try taking a walk in the ThunderShirt. More treats and positive reinforcement
