The development team at ThunderShirt had 5 main objectives:
1/ Easy to put on and take off
2/ Easy to create a snug, comfortable fit
3/ Attractive, durable fabric that resists collecting hair
4/ Attractive looking when worn
ThunderShirt is effective and requires little to no time commitment from dog owners.
ThunderShirts are made from cotton which is a breathable fabric. This has no lining and is not designed to be used as a coat. However, always monitor your dog for any signs of overheating such as heavy panting or tongue hanging out of the mouth and make sure there are amply water bowls for them.
The answer depends on the cause of anxiety. If it is from thunder storms then listen to the forecast and have the thunder shirt ready. If it is travel anxiety then only when you are about to travel.
Yes it will. The gentle pressure around the ribs release endorphins which slow the heart rate and breathing leading to a calmer dog.
The manufacturers say that ThunderShirts work in about 80% of cases. From our experience it is closer to 99% success rate. ThunderShirts also have a 45 day moneyback guarantee. So if the result isn't what you were expecting, and as long as the shirt is in a saleable condition (including the original packaging) we can give you a full refund.
Don't be phased. Once you have done it a few times you will soon become an expert.
Yes it can. Common sense and following the instructions will dictate what is best. Always observe your dog for signs of discomfort.
Depending on the dog and the level of anxiety, many owners see reductions or complete elimination of symptoms with the very first use. With others, it may take two or three usages of ThunderShirt to see results.
ThunderShirt is made with durable, washable fabric. When necessary, ThunderShirt may be washed in a regular cycle using regular laundry detergent and cold water. Hang to dry.
