ThunderShirt – the shirt that calms dogs

ThunderShirt_Logo

My dogs have two very different personalities, but they have one thing in common…anxiety.  That includes thunderstorms, household renovations, travel, and even our children being loud at times.  While Kainalu and Bella have different fears and ways of showing it, I wanted to give ThunderShirt a try.

ThunderShirt is a brand created by a dog owner who dealt with something many of us have been through – his dog shaking, barking, and being scared of thunderstorms and fireworks.  ThunderShirts are a simple, drug-free solution that have a big impact.

ThunderShirt - the shirt that calms dogs during thunderstorms and fireworks - perfect for my dog's anxiety!

There are a variety of styles available – sport, polo, and specialty sports team styles.  The small Pink Polo ThunderShirt fit Bella, my chihuahua pomeranian mix who is approximately 15 lbs, and the medium Classic ThunderShirt (gray) fit my stockier mixed breed Kainalu who is somewhere between 25 and 30 lbs.  Since the shirts are adjustable with velcro, you have a bit of leeway in case your dog’s weight fluctuates over time.

After using the shirts for about a month now, including the 4th of July and several thunderstorms, I am very impressed with how much they really do help.  I had my doubts in the beginning but once we tried them, my doubts were erased.  My dogs were much calmer during thunderstorms and hardly even seemed to bat an eye at hearing fireworks.

 

Bella's ThunderShirt helped her anxiety immensely during fireworks!

 

If your dog shows signs of anxiety in similar situations, I highly recommend giving ThunderShirt a try!  Visit ThunderShirt online or find them on Amazon.

Now I can’t wait to check out their other products!
