More Info Why does Thundershirt work?
It is not completely understood, but according to some experts such as Temple Grandin pressure has a calming affect on the nervous system. In most cases you will see improvement when you first put the ThunderShirt on, but in some dogs it takes two or three uses. Click for an instruction sheet.
We order the thunder coat not knowing for sure what size we needed, so we ordered a small. We have two papillions and thought that it would fit. Unfortunately it was too big. We called and were told we could not return it as our dog (our $1000 dog), might have mange or been flea infested. Why would I order this product if I didn't care enough to take care of my "pet"? I was very disappointed in the service we received from this company.
Good Buy by Christine from Seattle, WA10/17/2013
My pup has serious anxiety... the Thundershirt does seem to help I found that it's important to get them used to it when everything is happy and you're home just hanging out. She gets super excited when I pull it our... We have yet to see how she is when there is a thunder storm or fireworks.

Be sure to measure as stated. You might be surprised of the size your dog will need. Fit was good and didn't seem to mind wearing it. Still waiting on the next thunderstorm to see how she does. Did seem to mellow when it was put on her.
No matter what, we will be ready!

It calms my Jack Russell down during Thunderstorms. He actually will find it and pull on it to have me put it on.He still is nervous, but doesn't run and hide like before.
Great Thundershirt by LindaH from Bacliff, Texas04/01/2012
Emily seems to really calm down as soon as she is in her Thundershirt - before she shook to the point that we thought she might go into convulsions. My sister recommended it and the second time Emily saw it she got really excited and seemed calm and less fearful once we put it on her.

I bought one of these for my Scottie who is very afraid of thunder. It has worked so well, she wears it when I go to work on days they forecast storms. When I am home I put it on her as soon as I hear the first thunder clap and she rides out the storm with no panting, nervousness, anxiety and will just sit on my lap and sleep.

It has helped our dog some..She is afraid of rain in general and storms really set her off. Shes not totally calm with the shirt but it has helped her so as not to be quite so tramatic for her.
Waste of money by Weezer08/29/2013
This vest does not work plus it's hot and expensive. Just buy some Velcro and wrap it around your dog to see if it works for you.
