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.

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 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.

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.

Decent Item With One Issue

It seems very well made, but I don't understand why the very thick seam is in the middle inside: where it will be over very tender parts of a dog (their ears and head). I turned it "inside out" when I used it to make it as comfortable as possible. I think shifting the seam on either edge would work as well. I specifically bought it for softening the sound of fireworks and possibly adding a comforting factor. My Silky Terrier also was wearing a thundershirt. It seemed to work more than just the thundershirt alone, and of course the look of it on him made me smile.

Can’t hurt

Bought this for an older dog who has had increasing fear of loud noises. Thunderstorms now reduce her to full body shaking and hiding — which they never did previously. We’ve tried this twice in storms and while I haven’t seen a significant reduction in fear I will say she appears to like having it on, so I will keep trying. Our vet recommended this and CBD oil and that seems to be really perking her up (to my surprise, I’m a real doubter), but we haven’t had her on it thru a thunderstorm yet so we will see. Figure it can’t hurt to use both products!

not for my girl

I would have given this snood 5 stars because I love it, but my girl was not impressed. If I worked with her longer and harder, she might have learned to wear it, but she actually began to shake more with it on because she has allergies and had developed a hematoma on her left ear and she had a procedure to drain it. It did not seem to irritate her, and she wore it briefly, but she did shake, and this moved the snood to her neck where it became a fancy collar. My girl is a Double Merle, both blind and deaf so it is difficult to teach some behaviors and she has a rather small head which made it more difficult to keep in place. She is built like a Lab. BUT, if your dog likes to wear clothing and will wear hats and other items, which many do, this snood is heavy weight, thick, appeared to be comfortable and soft, is well made and stretchy. It seems to be of good quality. I was impressed. I'm keeping it for possible future need.

Not for my dogs

I bought 2 small ones for my 2 mini schnauzers that are afraid of thunderstorms. When I put it on my 13 yr old he didn’t move and eventually tried to take it off. My 3 yr old pancaked on the floor and then tried to get it off. I put them on a few times but they did the same things. They are stretchy but tight.

My dog is not a fan, but it works

I got a size small for my 14lb dog hoping it would help her fear of fireworks. She's worn it twice. It is tight, but not too tight. When I put it on her, she would freeze and wouldn't move very much, aside from swinging her head to the side to show me how very sad she was. However, within 10 minutes or so, she'd be lying down and fast asleep. One thing I don't like is the width. My dog is small so she has a really short neck, so I have to double the fabric over on the small size, which creates additional compression on an already tight Happy Hoodie. It seems like the width should be scaled to the size more than it is.

Happy Hoodie

My beagle suffers greatly from anxiety. During thunderstorms and the noise of fireworks, he is a nervous wreck. A couple of years ago, I purchased noise-canceling headphones for him to wear. The Happy Hoodie Calming Cap helps to keep his headphones in place!

I’m so amazed how good the happy hoodie helped my Jack Russell with thunder and fireworks. He can’t hardly keep his eyes open. Usually goes to sleep. He was so pitiful before the hoodie. He likes having it on. Doesn’t need thunder shirt any more . I guess it’s like if I took a Valium or something lol. Just ordered one for a lab I rescued. He’s so afraid of baths.

This item works

I have a blue healers that is hysterical with fear when it comes to fireworks. This item is well made, thick, goes on easy. It does block out a lot of the noise because we noticed the difference immediately. The really loud explosions which make the house shake are still a problem and that is understandable. The only problem I had with it was that she would shake her head sometimes and occasionally it would slide down around her neck. I would still recommend this item it was a big help.

Work Well!

I bought this to use when I dry my dog with a forced air dryer. I think it was a better experience that when I have blown out the floof with out it.

Really helps

My yorkie has severe anxiety attacks to fireworks and thunderstorms. She already has a Thundershirt, medicine and a background noise machine but this sealed the deal to help her feel more calm! I use all her other products and leave this until last when things are really getting loud. It doesn't bother her at all but I try not to leave it on for any more than an hour. Total game changer!
