The Thundershirt

This is the season for thunderstorms and it can be a stressful time of year for some dogs. Does your dog hide under the bed, shake and whine when it is thundering and lightning or with fireworks? Does your dog have other stressors like separation anxiety or travel anxiety?

A simple product that we have found successful in dealing with dog’s anxiety is the Thundershirttm. It is a snug-fitting garment for dogs that provides a gentle, constant pressure; kind of like a hug. The pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are over-excited, fearful or anxious. For many, this is a great alternative to medications!
