Thundershirt Anxiety Treatment for Dogs
I purchased the extra small for my dog. It is very easy to put on and the fabric is very soft and comfortable. My dog seems to like it on.
I bought this for my Shih Tzu who is a rescue and has terrible anxiety about certain things - thunderstorms; riding in the car; strangers. I'm working with a trainer and my vet and have added this to my arsenal of things to help her. When I first put it on her she wouldn't move but after a while she got up and it didn't seem to bother her. It's too early to tell if it works but she does seem calmer when she has it on. I plan to re-review later on. It is well made; has good instructions that come with it; fits her perfectly. One detail is how to measure the dog. I went on line to find that out. You measure behind the front legs to choose the correct size.
This Really Works!
I already had two of these and ordered the turquoise. Nice to get any other color besides gray. It would have been helpful to give the weights for each size. All three of my pups now are stress free during storms. Great purchase! Thanks QVC!
If I had not seen it with my own eyes!!!
My German Shorthair Pointer is a working dog, she bird hunts and is very used to the sound of gunfire. Suddenly out of the blue she has become frightened of thunder and lightening. She was driving me crazy panting, and crying. I saw the thundershirt and decided to give it a try. I used it for the first time yesterday and had astounding results. Once the shirt was on her she very calmly laid down in front of the living room window and watched as the weather slowly changed. Definitely get this one, it helps them so much!
CAN'T TAKE IT OFF HER
Our mini doxie was going through some confusing time as her Daddy retired and was home all the time but Mommie was still working so she began to scratch until she would bleed. I ordered this shirt for her and she LOVES IT so much that she wants it on the first thing in the morning and take it off after she falls asleep at night. She has stopped scratching and is so calm, that sometimes she forgets to bark at the UPS man!
MORE COLORS PLEASE
My greyhound girl doesn't balk at thunder, fireworks or other loud noises. BUT! She has horrible separation anxiety. Every time I would leave her she would act out. Even though she didn't NEED to go potty, more times than not I would find a little mess in the house! Or maybe something chewed! Thought I might as well try this and would send back if it didn't work. Well, it WORKS! Haven't found a mess in the house since I got it home. It is a life saver! Wish I would have found this sooner!
Couldn't believe it, it actually worked!!!
Was a little hesitant on buying this, honestly didn't think it would work. And to my surprise it did, wasn't a 100% cure but definitely a big improvement in behavior. I work as a veterinary tech for the past 20 years and will be recommending this to all of our clients.
Don't Be Afraid..this Works!
I didn't believe this product would help my dog during thunder storms but it does. You need to put it on before all the loud thunder begins but it does help to calm him down. Don't know how it works but it does.
My Lhasapoo has shown no behavioral differences when wearing this. He shakes uncontrollably and is very stressed during thunder and fireworks, and this has been of no help. It's nothing more than a t-shirt with a lot of Velcro wraps.
IT REALLY WORKS!
This is a wonderful treatment for my little Basset Hound. She is so afraid of storms and I was hoping this would work, and it did. It's the best. It really works and helps my dog so much. I love it.
WHAT A RELIEF!!!!
My Westie has suffered with anxiety for many years and have had to sedate with Valium and other sedatives. I decided to try the thunder shirt since Duffy is 11yrs old. He LOVES it and runs to bring it to me to put it on him. It works within 5 min. And Peace reigns again. Great product
Really Works N Looks Great
I read the reviews and was very interested. My Lexi is a formally abused rescue 1 year old German Shepard, Lab n Collie mix n since we brought her home 8 months ago she has terrible separation anxiety from me and I feel so bad when I have to leave her and thought anything to help her Anything i will try and my guilt of going to the store lol. I received it and tried it on her and we all made a big deal of how pretty she looked and made a big deal and she liked it and when I go out now and she has it on she can deal with my absence. She was so good the Husband said and NO she did not cry at all. She is not afraid of the thunder or storms, which is shocking because our last dog Lola would shake uncontrollably n hide her head anywhere she could, unless I had her in my arms then she would only shake and I wish I had this huggable shirt for her but so happy I found it for Lexi. If you are not sure just try it. I bought it a little bigger because she is still growing. I also am buying a back up for sure, she has been through enough in her short life I don't want her to have fear anymore.
