For fear of thunder, fireworks fear, separation anxiety, travel anxiety, problem barking, jumping, training, lead pulling and more.
Whenever a dog is anxious, fearful or over-excited, Thundershirt's gentle, constant pressure can bring calm and focus. Most dogs respond with the very first usage. Others may take two or three usages. Over 80% of dog owners report significantly reduced anxiety symptoms when using Thundershirt.
Thundershirt is a great alternative for medications. Treating anxiety with medications is not always the best or fastest way. Sedatives can help in severe cases but usually must be administered hours before the anxiety event, could have unwanted side-effects and last long after the event has passed. Daily-use medications could also be expensive. In contrast, Thundershirt is effective, risks no side effects and requires little to no time commitment from dog owners.
Thundershirt's patent-pending design applies gentle, constant pressure on a dog's torso, and this pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs. Pressure has been used to successfully reduce anxiety for many years. Many TTouch practitioners even recommend the Thundershirt over traditional Tellington TTouch body wraps because Thundershirt is effective and so easy to use.
Thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers now recommend Thundershirts for their anxiety and fear cases.
Thundershirt is an excellent treatment for most types of dog anxiety and fear issues. For many anxieties, we recommend just putting on a Thundershirt and observing the results (no training required!). You very well may see significant improvement for noise, crate, travel, barking and others with absolutely no training. For more complicated anxiety cases, we recommend using Thundershirt as part of a behavior modification program.
One thing is for certain, for a very large percentage of dogs, Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a terrific calming effect. This has obvious benefits for most types of anxiety. But Thundershirt is also a very useful tool for managing excitability or hyperactivity with strangers, on the leash, or in a training environment. Thundershirt’s calming effect helps a dog to focus (or refocus) energies in a more constructive direction, allowing training to be more effective.
