    CALM & COZY

    Did not work.

    Unfortunately did not work for our Pyrenees mix. No difference in her stress or anxiety whatsoever. She doesn't mind wearing it though.

Shirt quality is ok, the thickness of a heavy workout fabric. I was expecting more of a heavy jacket. Our dog is 93lb, and the usable area that goes under the rib cage is probably not large enough for her. The flap that goes over her hind area rolls up and serves no purpose as far as I can tell. The velcro that goes across the neck does not extend far enough into the attaching flap, causing the under flap to often pop out from underneath. Perhaps it is great if it works, but for our large dog there was no difference. Will seek to return if possible. … more

  • Thundershirt

    By on

    This was a try we have very very high anxiety standard poodle puppy 8 months old . He tore the shirt off in less than 10 min. Next time my daughter and I both put it on him had to fold the back under to his waist to keep him from grabbing it. It stayed on all day really didn't see any difference. We've tried the anxiety med. Nothing is working im afraid were going to have to get rid of him he's very distructive he's torn up a 700.00 lift chair not 7 months old . Tore door seals off. Numerous small things . If you have any ideas they would be appriciated. Thank you

  • Doesn't work for my Sheltie

    By on

    I have used the ThunderShirt in the past for a golden retriever that didn't like thunder. Worked like a charm. However, it doesn't do a thing to calm my 8 month old Sheltie when left home in his crate. We had a puppy cam and watched him act out the entire time we were gone.

  • Thunder shirt

    By on

    I would and should have given this a higher rating but....i put this on my 16month old great dane thinking it would calm him down from the thunder after running out of ideas on how to calm him during a storm and he totally zoned out.After I got it on him which was quit simple he completely FROZE. I sat for twenty minutes trying to get him to move and he wouldnt budge. He wouldnt stand or lay down he wouldnt even look at me except the look of what's going on. I just wished he would take to it because I think it's great idea.

  • Nice coat for the doggie

    She likes the coat, looks cute on her. Well made stretchy fabric. However the calming effect was not there :(

  • Seemed to work but not all the time

    By on

    My puppy is 11 months old, she is going thru crate training about 2 weeks ago she switched from my sisters house to my house. When we leave for work she starts to cry and at night she cries, howls and whines all thought the night. We tried this in hopes that it would calm her separation anxiety. It did but then she just got use to it. And now it doesn't so now we still have a crying pup. I have heard wonderful stories from my friend that it works for her dog during fireworks and storms. But every dog is different

  • DON'T THINK IT WORKED

    By on

    I really had high hopes about this thunder shirt but was a little disappointed, I put it on my dog and he wouldn't move he would either stand in one spot or sit in one spot like he was frozen and wouldn't lay down. I wish I could tell some kind of difference but I didn't he has only had problems with fire works and storms the last say 2 years he is 9 years old. He doesn't shake like most dogs in these situations but paces barks and pants hard but when I put thunder shirt on him he's a statue It works great for allergies he chews and irritates skin so I put the thunder shirt on and he doesn't attempt to chew because he won't move. But maybe on some dogs this will work mine likes you to hold I really had high hopes about this thunder shirt but was a little disappointed, I put it on my dog and he wouldn't move he would either stand in one spot or sit in one spot like he was frozen and wouldn't lay down.

  • helped a little bit...

    By on

    My dog doesn't have a problem with thunder - I bought this product to help with his anxiety when in the car. Recently used it on a long (3 hour) road trip and while he was calm at times there was no prolonged period on quiet in the way back of the car. Not sure how effective it really was for that purpose. Will try again

  • Not what I expected

    By on

    I don't believe this product worked at all. I expected it to be a little heavier. I would return it in a minute if it could be returned with dog fur.

  • Not for my girl

    By on

    Unfortunately this did not help for my 3yo Pitbull/Akita mix girl. I thought I'd give it a try for 4th of a July because she hates fireworks, along with all loud sounds. But no it did not help.

  • Thunder shirt

    By on

    The shirt is well made and fits Hal very well. However, because my dog cannot read he fails the panic test. He is comfortable but still shakes, whines, and barks at the same things as before.
