Questions & Answers

13 Customer Questions

is it an actual hoodie like a sweatshirt with a hood or is it just a hood like a hat?
Answer by ChewyJun 22, 2020
This hoodie is not a sweatshirt. It is a soft, expandable, comfort band that is placed over a pet's ears to provide relief and protection from loud noises and forceful air.

What kind of fabric is this made of? What is the content?
Answer by ChewySep 29, 2020
The Happy Hoodie Calming Dog Compression Hoodie is made of cotton.

does dogs ears go toward the back of dog or toward the face?
Answer by ChewyJan 27, 2022
When placing cap on dogs ears go facing back.

What prevents them from getting it off
Answer by ChewyOct 14, 2020
If your pet has enough strength, energy and determination, they might be able to remove the hoodie. Some pets may not be as receptive to wearing Happy Hoodie; however, most are very appreciative with having it on during a stressful situation.

Dog seems to really like to wear this when getting blow dried. She's usually quite sensitive to sound and the dryer has always been something she gets nervous about from the moment it turns on. With this she tolerated a blow dry of her body and looks calmer than ever

Only mild success

Unfortunately for dogs with super high anxiety, this hood does not help much if at all. My dog is on meds for anxiety and still working on bravery in new situations. This may have made her anxiety worse while it was on.

Didn't work out for my girl

Thought this might work out better than an e-collar to keep my dog from scratching at her ear, but she totally hated it and was relentless in attempts to remove it. Oh well. The Happy Hoodie was more of an Unhappy Hoodie.

He loves it!

I really didn't know if my pup would get onboard with this, but he's not fighting wearing it at all! It was almost like a thunder shirt, he relaxed with it on. The sizing was great for my 70lb pittie mix

Thunder cap

Used once because no rain storms lately. My dog is extremely sensitive Hearing advancement of storms. This happy hoodie together with vest & pills helped her through the thunderstorm. I recommend this cap to calm your pets.

Noise reducer

Much to my surprise, it helps. I bought this mostly to help with blow drying after a bath. My great dane does not mind wearing it. I put it on while he was sheltering in place in the closet from the thunder and fireworks, and he actually fell asleep quicker. I also had his radio and fan on as well. But he fell asleep quicker than his usual time frame.

A godsend for 4th of July fireworks!

I'm a border collie with very sensitive hearing. I don't like it when I hear gun shots or thunder, but fireworks are the worst. My owner tried everything to help me - prescription meds, calming chews, CBD, a compression vest, calming pheromone plugins, calming sprays, a white noise machine, exposure therapy, distractions, you name it. She's even soundproofed my crate with materials that rock bands use to soundproof their vans while on the road! But I still hide in my crate, in the basement, shaking like a leaf and refusing to eat or move. With the Happy Hoodie, I'm still scared... but I'll eat treats! And I've stopped shaking. I still won't leave my crate, but I'm not losing years off my life from the stress. My owner uses the Happy Hoodie in tandem with several other measures, like the calming chews, sprays, and Thunder vest. And with my facial structure (border collie, pointy nose) it's safe to leave on me overnight. I do recommend giving your dog treats while you put on the Happy Hoodie, as putting something over a dog's face can be scary. And if you're using it for fireworks, practice when there aren't any scary noises so your dog doesn't learn to associate the Happy Hoodie with the scary noises. My balance is a little wobbly once I'm wearing my Happy Hoodie, so it's best for lounging. If you can time it so that your dog is already wearing the Happy Hoodie just before the scary boom noises start, that's the best!

works like a charm

used this during bathing my dogs and during 4th of July (neighborhood fireworks....they are terrified) It seemed to muffle the sound to the point they could tolerate the fireworks going off.
