Thunder Dog Shirt
With its patent-pending design, Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful or over-excited. Based on surveys completed by over two thousand customers, over 80% of dogs show significant improvement in symptoms when using Thundershirt. Thundershirt is already helping tens of thousands of dogs around the world, and is recommended by thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers.
As for WHY Thundershirt’s gentle pressure works to calm a dog, experts such as Dr. Temple Grandin believe that pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years. For example:
- TTouch dog trainers use pressure to address a wide variety of anxieties.
- Veterinarians use pressure to relax cattle when they are administering vaccinations.
- People with autism use pressure to relieve their persistent anxiety.
- Children with certain behavioral problems use pressure shirts and weighted vests to relax and focus.
- Parents use swaddling to calm an inconsolable newborn infant.
Until now, there just hasn’t been a well-designed, inexpensive pressure wrap commonly used for dog anxiety. Thundershirt is changing that! Thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers now recommend Thundershirts for their anxiety cases.

Thunder Shirt time = Calm Dog :-)This was a fantastic buy for our Golden Retriever Harley and we'd highly recommend it to anyone. We've had ours now for just over a year and it's been used many times, from fireworks, thunder and even car journeys. It's quick and easy to put on and we noticed Harley became much calmer and more settled. Its really helped him many times, most recently from some bad Thunder we had. He started getting stressed and upset so on went his Thunder Shirt and then he settled down for the evening. It really has made a huge difference for Harley and we happily recommend it to friends and family all the time. Its so easy to put on and Harley always seems very comfortable in it, so it's perfect for even putting on early knowing there might be fireworks for example. It certainly does him no harm and it's easy and quick to take off too. What more can we say? We love it and if your dog is struggling with anxiety etc its certainly worth a go as it worked for us. It's a brilliant piece of kit!
Thunder shirtThe shirt is not brilliant but it has helped to a certain degree he is a bit calmer
Thunder shirtThe shirt didn't do any good when the fireworks are going off unfortunately but I have to say that my little dog is a lot calmer since wearing it, she still barks but not to the extent she used to.
I was very sceptical about this product but I was desperate to help my very depressed 7 year old Jack Russell bitch.She hates having even a lead put on her but following the instructions, the coat was on her without any problems. She seemed to love it and has improved well beyond my expectations. After 6 months of showing no interest in anything, she is almost back to her old self. I am going to buy another for her brother, who hates car travel.
