Thundershirt Can Help Calm Pets During Scary Storms


With all the storm coverage and scary strange weather we’re having lately remember your dog! Dogs are really members of our family so it’s important we keep them safe and calm. We wanted to share a story from, Jennifer Markin, a friend of ours on the East Coast who’s been dealing with the insane weather and her stressed out dog!

“No one was more scared about Sandy than my dog Winnie.  He hates it, and usually barks at the window in a crazy hitch pitched scream or hides under the bed completely so I can’t reach him or calm him down. I picked up a Thundershirt last summer when New York was hit hard at my pet store. The lady recommended it so I thought I’d try it and if it didn’t work I’d just return it. Let’s just say he wore his Thundershirt the whole time.”

So how does it work?

Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for dogs and cats if they are anxious or fearful. Anxiety experts believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system and may release calming hormones like endorphins or oxytocins.

Don’t believe it? We didn’t either until we saw this Before & After video!

Over 80% of dogs show significant improvement in symptoms and Thundershirt can be used for:

» Fear of thunder/fireworks
» Separation anxiety
» Travel anxiety
» Crate training
» Problem barking
» Hyperactivity
» Leash pulling
