Thundershirt

ThundershirtUsing a Thundershirt and some essential oils (Lavender, Peace and Calming or Trauma Life) can help your dog through those times when thunder, loud noises or fireworks cause them anxiety.

Mattie tends to be anxious when going outside or to a new location. I have definitely seen a change in him when using it.

My Aunt uses it for her dog and she has seen TREMENDOUS results. Look at this video of Puppy sitting calmly while fireworks are going off in the background.  Amazing!

How does it work?

Thundershirt works by  applying pressure to the proper pressure points on the body.  It is the same concept as swaddling a baby.  The pressure helps to calm the receiver of the wrap.  Sometimes it takes using it a time or two before the full effect is felt and seen. I know that was the case with my Aunt and Puppy.  The first time we tried it, it wasn’t so successful.  The second time she tried it is when she saw results.  So trying it more than once is essential.

If you find that it doesn’t work for you Thundershirt will accept returns up until 60 days, no questions asked.  They believe in their product so much they donate the returns to dogs in shelters.
