The Thundershirt is a safe, effective and drug-free anxiety solution for dogs. It's patent-pending design applies gentle, constant pressure on a dog's torso, and this pressure has an amazing calming effect for most dogs.
Pressure has been used to successfully reduce anxiety for many years for both animals and humans. Examples include certain groups of dog trainers using pressure wraps for a wide variety of anxieties, veterinarians using squeeze chutes when vaccinating cattle, and thousands of people with autism using pressure to relieve persistent anxiety.
Thundershirt's are ideal for:
Fear of thunder
Any noise anxiety
Car or travel anxiety
General training tool
Simply measure your dog's chest (torso) just behind the front legs at its largest point.

After our neighbours let us know that our boxer was howling when we would leave for work, we were at a bit of a loss. We knew he was highly dependent on close proximity with us, but did not have the option of working from home or to get another pet at the time. We invested in this jacket and since, Odin has relaxed significantly when we are not home. We are investigating further training, but this anxiety jacket has helped substantially!
We bought a Thunder Jacket for our mad Jack Russell. He would spend hours chasing shadows on the wall / floor /ceiling. Not even shutting the curtains /turning off the lights worked as he would just sit and wait for the shadows to re-appear. It was driving us bonkers. Even three walks a day didnt stop it so we thought that the shadows may be making him anxious. The jacket worked first time. He immediately stopped chasing shadows and interacted with us instead. Now he mainly naps when we put it on him. As an added bonus it also calms him when we have vistors and on car trips. It's like magic. I highly recomend it.
