    What is Thundershirt?

    As seen on TV, Thundershirt is an affordable, drug-free solution for anxiety problems in dogs and cats. Thundershirt uses gentle, constant pressure on your pet's torso (just like a constant hug) to help calm your pet. Unlike most anxiety calming products, Thundershirt does not contain any pheromones or drugs; thereby, leaving your pet calm but not lethargic. Thundershirt is great for dogs and cats with fear of thunder or fireworks (or any loud noise), separation anxiety, travel anxiety, crate anxiety, grooming, litter box problems, barking problems, hyperactivity, leash pulling, and even as a general training tool.

    For: Dogs & Cats


    Benefits:
    Helps calm your dog's or cat's anxiety during stressful situations
    Drug-free and easy-to-use
    Recommended and used by veterinarians and trainers
    Over 80% of dog owners report improvement in their dog's noise anxieties when using Thundershirt
    Great for dogs and cats with many anxiety issues, such as: fear of loud noises, separation anxiety, litter box problems, travel anxiety, crate anxiety, and more

    How it works:
    Thundershirt uses pressure to relieve anxiety. Experts believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system and have been using pressure techniques for years on both animals and humans. Like acupuncture and acupressure does for people, applying pressure to dogs and cats has been proven to help calm them in stressful situations. In fact, 80% of dog owners who tried Thundershirt for a variety of anxiety problems noticed improvement in their dogs. Veterinarians and dog trainers use and recommend Thundershirt for anxiety too.

    Cautions:
    In severe cases of separation anxiety, it is recommended to use Thundershirt in conjunction with a training program.

    Directions:
    Before or during a stressful situation, place Thundershirt gently on your pet's back and fasten the chest and torso straps.

    Instructions for Dogs:
    How to use Thudershirt Wrap Thundershirt around your dog's torso Fit Thundershirt to your dog Fasten Thundershirt to your dog.
    1.) Place the Thundershirt on your dog's back and wrap the Short Flap under the torso. 2.) Wrap the Long Flap under the torso and secure with fasteners onto the Short Flap. You should be able to easily slide your fingers between the Thundershirt and your dog's torso. 3.) Wrap the Top Flap down onto the Long Flap and secure with fasteners. Adjust to improve the snug fit and keep Thundershirt securely in place. 4.) Wrap the Neck Straps around the front of the dog and secure with fasteners. You should be able to easily slide your fingers under the Neck Straps and should not feel restricting around your dog's neck.


    Instructions for Cats:
    How to use Thudershirt for cats Wrap Thundershirt around your cat's torso Fit Thundershirt to your cat
    1.) Place the Thundershirt on your cats back and lightly wrap the Neck Straps around the front of the cat and secure with fasteners. Should be able to easily slide two fingers inside Neck Straps. 2.) Wrap the Long Flap under the torso and secure with fasteners onto the Short Flap. Make a comfortable, snug fit. 3.) Wrap the Top Flap down onto the Long Flap and secure with fasteners. Adjust to improve the snug fit and keep Thundershirt securely in place.
    Tip: If your pet seems nervous or anxious when he or she sees the Thundershirt, try putting it on the ground and giving your dog or cat a little food, using Thundershirt as a plate. This trick often works because many pets become more comfortable with and trusting of anything that they associate with food.
    Note: The fasteners make Thundershirt adjustable for many different body shapes.

    Details about Thundershirt:

    • Make sure your pet meets the weight requirements. (See sizing chart below)
    • Every size of Thundershirt includes fasteners to adjust to your pet's unique size and shape.
    • While Thundershirt will usually reduce anxieties in dogs just by putting it on, in severe cases of separation anxiety, it is recommended to use Thundershirt in conjunction with a training program.
    • We recommend measuring your pet's chest to ensure you purchase the correct Thundershirt.

    Please note: Our list of recommended breeds is just a guideline, and in addition, our listed measurements differ from the measurements recommended by the manufacturer. Based on surveys that we conducted, we believe our measurements to be helpful when purchasing a Thundershirt for your dog or cat.

    Awesome product! As a pet care professional, I've had the opportunity to use the Thundershirt on many clients. When it is fitted properly and used in conjunction with positive reinforcement, it is one of the BEST investments a pet owner can make for dogs and cats with separation anxiety and/or other behavioral issues! I highly recommend! 05/15/2012
    He isn't scared of wind anymore! Bogart was rescued at only 6 weeks. He has always been afraid of anything including wind. Put the Thundershirt and Boggie is like a new dog. I made a mistake and went out side with the door ajar to put some mail out. I couldn't believe it Boggie ran off. Thankfully he didn't not go far but he would never do that before the shirt. He is much more calm. This Shirt is a winner for an insecure doggie. 04/30/2012
    Really helps relieve stress My sister's Blue heeler/Pointer mix is a rescue dog with anxiety issues. She gets very nervous around strangers and we have had a problem with her biting out of fear. We weren't able to take her out anywhere and she was barking during the night, attacking other dogs, etc. She was a real mess. I was given the Thunder Shirt from a friend, and to far it has helped a lot. It's not a miracle-worker, but it takes the edge off her stress and we can take her out places now. She still reacts to things that really bothered her before, but nowhere near to the same extent. It also helps her sleep at night and not bark at every sound outside the window. On the downside, it is very expensive for such simple technology; you could easily substitute the wrapping effect with a close-fitting dog shirt or make your own out of stretchy T-shirt fabric. I would not have paid $40 for this, even with the help it's been. 11/19/2014
    Ineffective Ok, it could be the breed, but the Thundershirt was my last resort to calming my Jack Russell, Lucy. I've tried doggie downers and then this shirt. Don't waste your money at least if you have a Jack Russell Terror. 10/23/2014
    Nope! Every time I put it on my cat, he immediately became "paralyzed kitty". Wouldn't even stand up! 09/21/2014

    thundershirt sizing

    Do you have guidelines (weight/measurements) that will help me decide what size is appropriate? I have a cairn terrier that is afraid of lightning. He weighs 15 lbs, but is very slender as he is so active.

    Answer: 
    I would get the recommended size for his weight anyway; there is a LOT of room to bring it in, including double panels along the side.
    My Blue Heeler mix is also very slender for her size, but the medium-dog shirt fits her just fine with plenty of adjustment room both directions..

    Thunder shirt

    I have a 1 year old cat that I rescued at about 8 weeks old. She is slowly getting more friendly and more attached to us but my adult children and grandchildren are getting greeted with hisses and bites if they try to pet her. Do you think the Thunder shirt will help with her fears?

    We've had our rescue dog for about 10 months now - he is a very nervous dog and reacts/barks to noises - fireworks, high pitched music, the vacuum cleaner...he has separation anxiety and is very territorial over the house, too - does not like visitors. We have our first baby due in 3 months - do you think the thundershirt would solve some anxiety my dog may have with a new addition to the house?

    Answer: 
    It will help, yes, but it is not a miracle-worker. It takes the edge off and makes him act more like a normal dog, but things that really set him off before will still affect him.
    For instance, if he's in the other room the vacuum cleaner probably won't affect him anymore, but if you're vacuuming close to him he will probably still freak out.
    Also, visitors will still affect him if he's right there, but if you keep him away from the door he should be fine.

    We have had our dog for a month and she is 13 months old. She is wonderful when we are all home but when we leave she tries to escape, and has done so over a 7+foot fence multiple times. Would this help her anxiety for this issue?
