ThunderShirt Sport Dog Anxiety Jacket
It’s very rare to meet a dog that isn’t afraid of loud thunderous noises such as during severe thunderstorms, extra-boisterous Fourth of July celebrations, and other similar scenarios where your dog is simply so anxious about these noises. While training can help, you can also use the ThunderShirt Sport Dog Anxiety Jacket on your pet. It’s like giving them a soothing and reassuring hug to make them feel at ease when the environment simply isn’t.
The ThunderShirt is not really that different from the dog vest or even the body-hugging dog harness that you may have already seen. It is worn on dogs in pretty much the same way as you would don a dog harness or dog vest over your pet. However, the main difference is in the design of the panels that apply constant pressure on your pet’s body.
Just think of it this way. If your dog scampers because of a loud thunder or an explosion from the fireworks going on in your neighborhood, your natural reaction is to pick it up and hold it closer to your body as if hugging it tight. This helps neutralize whatever tension your pet is feeling because of these events.
The same is true with the ThunderShirt. By applying constant pressure on your pet’s body, it can easily calm down a nervous or anxious dog. Not only is the ThunderShirt useful in instances where there are loud noises, it is equally effective in calming down a hyperactive or overly excited hound. It’s also used in relaxing pets with serious separation anxiety issues or those that are averse to traveling especially when going to the vet.
The ThunderShirt may look like an ordinary dog vest, but it actually mimics your warm and reassuring embrace for your pet without having to pop a pill.
