At first , I was a little skeptical about purchasing this product . I had to give it a try after reading all the great reviews about how it does wonders with dogs with anxiety . This product was purchased to get my dog through July 4th fireworks . My 9 year old Yorkie had her first ever best July 4th yet. . I followed the instructions and introduced the thunder shirt a week before the Holiday and kept it on her for 15 minutes a day. The night of the fireworks, I put it on and she quietly slept next to me as fireworks were going on in the neighborhood. Thank you Thundershirt for helping my girl get thru her unfavorite time of year .
as my dog doesn't wear clothes often, so when we first got her all fitted she was like a puppy in a life jacket almost leaning over lol! But once she got used to the feeling she stopped trying to hide, poking us for comfort and running at every little noise! She even fell asleep with it on! after getting used to it and taking it off she seems back to her old self not to skittish which is a huge relief. We don't need to use the shirt often but it does work and is worth it!
I was extremely skeptical about these. We have 2 English Golden Retrievers who are both terrified of loud noises. Thunderstorms and fireworks are brutal, to the point they won't go outside to do their business for hours after a single firework. We end up at the Vet for UTIs several times a year. With the 4th of July falling in the middle of the week this year, I knew we had a full week or more of daily fireworks, so I decided to give these a shot.They didn't completely cure the fear, but they very significantly reduced it. They were much, much calmer inside while the fireworks were going. None of the usual whining, scratching, jumping, etc. And because they didn't spend the inside time terrified, they were both willing to go outside as soon as the noises stopped. They even played outside through a few late shots, without immediately running for the door.So I view these as a very worthwhile investment. They aren't an end all/be all magic cure, but they definitely help a LOT.
OMG! This really works! My little dog did not nip at my sister's heels or jump on her when she came home from work like she always did! I have to admit, I wasn't too sure about all the hope... but I am now a BELIEVER!!!! Came quick and loved the little touch of the business card!
I really hope my review helps someone, because I'm all about reading reviews to help me in deciding to purchase something. The reviews I did read were not very helpful with the sizing. I am inserting photos of my fur baby wearing the shirt. She is a Party Pomeranian and she weighs exactly 7lbs. I ordered the xx-small size at first and that is way too small. I ended up ordering the x-small and I couldn't believe how big a difference in size they are. The x-small is the perfect size for her. I have had it for about a week now and she wears it constantly. She is 10 years old and it seems the older she gets, the more stressed out she gets. No more pacing, licking, hiding, hitting me with her paws. Has it relieved all of her stress issues? No, but it has relieved a most of them. I can't believe this actually works!
