Give your dog all the calming benefits of ThunderShirt in addition to added warmth and protection from the rain! When you purchase a ThunderSweater, your ThunderShirt is included.
With its patent-pending design, ThunderShirt's gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful or over-excited. Data collected from surveys completed by over two thousand customers reveals that over 80% of dogs show significant improvement in symptoms when using ThunderShirt.
As for WHY ThunderShirt's gentle pressure works to calm a dog, experts such as Dr. Temple Grandin believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years. For example: TTouch dog trainers use pressure to address a wide variety of anxieties. People with autism use pressure to relieve their persistent anxiety. Children with certain behavioral problems use pressure shirts and weighted vests to relax and focus. Parents use swaddling to calm an inconsolable newborn infant. Until now, there just hasn't been a well-designed, inexpensive pressure wrap commonly used for dog anxiety. ThunderShirt is changing that!
Thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers now recommend ThunderShirts for their anxiety cases. For many anxieties, we recommend just putting on a ThunderShirt and observing the results (No training!). You very well may see significant improvement for noise, crate, travel, barking and others with absolutely no training.
