Thundershirt are known worldwide as providing a solution to dog anxiety. Their patented dog anxiety vest applies a gentle and constant pressure to a dog’s body. This has a calming effect that is observed in over 80% of dogs.
The effects are seen to help dogs (and cats!?) when they are anxious, fearful or overexcited due to situations such as:
Fireworks and loud noises
Trips to vet or groomers
Moving house or boarding kennels
Recommended by thousands of vets and trainers, the dog Thundershirt is easy to put on. Just lay it over your dog’s back and secure with the chest and torso straps.
Gentle pressure has been used to comfort people and animals for years: swaddling an infant, people with autism and Tellington TTouch animal trainers.
Experts believe that it has a calming effect on the nervous system possibly due to encouraging a calming hormone similar to endorphins.
There are many Thundershirt reviews online that explain how this anxiety jacket has helped their pet.
