Dealing with dogs that have anxiety, fear or stress over common things can be a nightmare. We often try to hold them and comfort them, but to no avail. Sometimes that only makes it worse, because we are reinforcing that behavior. I have recommended the Thundershirt to several clients and have seen good results. It works in more than 1/2 the cases, and I’ve even used it on my dogs.
It’s a good product that doesn’t make a host of promises. It uses a simple premise and that is the swaddling theory (as in swaddling babies to keep them calm). When it works it’s great, and when it doesn’t – it doesn’t make anything worse. The Thundershirt can alleviate anxiety over fireworks, separation anxiety, fear and more. Sometimes it take a while to work, sometimes it works right away. I highly suggest you consider trying it for your cat or dog. It’s not an expensive product, but worth every penny.
You can get the Thundershirt directly from the company, Amazon and many local pet stores. Give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
