“I’ve tried everything with my very sweet, but very anxious (which I can sarcastically thank my ex-husband for!) Great Dane. Xanax helps marginally, training wasn’t working out that well, it was very frustrating! My best friend works at an animal hospital and uses one of these on her dog, so when I was at a friend’s dog store over the weekend, I decided to pick one up. I laughed and said he would be more likely to chew it off than like wearing it. Much to my surprise, he LOVES his Thundershirt! I put it on him and he immediately calms down, which, in turn, calms down his bestest buddy older brother (a high-strung coonhound) and his older sister (a docile Catahoula/chocolate lab).
I’ve recommended this product to several people already, posting the attached picture on Facebook and Instagram. Thank you for making the equivalent of a weighted vest for dogs!”
“Our dog Roxie has always had some form of anxiety since she was given to us. For some reason she would do constant licking. Recently we were on vacation for over a week, but spent time in and out of the house. For some reason this triggered constant shaking and panting, even in the house. We took her to the vet and they said it was anxiety and gave us meds that helped some. I bought the thundershirt too and now she’s much better.”
“I have three dogs, two are puppy mill rescues who are frightened of noise and have PTSD. There is major construction going on in the neighborhood and the Thundershirts have helped them so much that I have purchased 5 of them this year.”
“I love the Thundershirt! My dog, Figi, was rescued from a puppy mill. She has severe separation anxiety. This has helped with everything! Thunderstorms, fireworks, noisy neighbors, children outside, walking her without fears of loud noises, even car rides cause it has helped get rid of her travel sickness. I saw that anxiety listed on the package after I bought it so that was a plus! I have recommended this to several other pet owners. This picture was taken during the second round of thunder in one day!”
“My dog is super nervous about anything since we adopted him as a puppy (otherwise he’s a perfect dog). He’s so fearful from the tiniest bangs and slams. When it’s new, he’s scared of it. We tried everything, well almost. When I saw he looked so miserable one evening (of thunderstorm), he was pacing back and forth and I knew I had to do something. Giving him Benadryl wasn’t an option (I gave him 3 for his allergies that morning, 3 more wouldn’t be such a good idea). The next day I bought this product, put it on him and noticed he acted a lot calmer (it didn’t diminish all of his anxieties, but it helped). He jumped on the couch (which was a good sign, he usually ducks under the table) and slept soundly. My husband and I looked at each other in amazement. It actually works!”
“Her new thundershirt helps make Jasmine a little more brave. Thanks Thundershirt!”
“I have a 5 year old poma-poo, who has been a nervous wreck since we got her at 6 weeks. She had never slept a full night the entire time we’ve had her, getting up not just 1 time, but she would get up 4 or 5 times a night, barking and running around in circles. I bought a Thundershirt, not believing that it would work as advertised. The first night I put it on her, she slept through the entire night. It’s incredible! When it’s getting close to bed time, she stands by her Thundershirt and barks until I put it on her… I can’t believe it! And I couldn’t get her to sit still for anything before, but with the Thundershirt she sits like a statue to put on leashes or anything. It’s a miracle in our household! I’m getting ready to order a new one now that I’ve seen them in pink!”

“My wife and I just bought a Thundershirt for our 2 years old Havanese/Poodle Mix, and we can’t get over the difference it makes after him only having worn it for 10 minutes!
He licks instead of nibbles on our hands, doesn’t cry when someone leaves the house, and there has been non of the hyperactivity he has shown since we got him about a Month ago.
If we ever have any problems with our other dog, we know where to come
Thanks again! Thundershirt ROCKS!!”
“My 15 year old Brittany has always been a very active dog but recently she began acting very anxious during the day. A friend had told me about the Thundershirt for her dog who’s freaks out during storms, so I thought maybe it would also work on anxiety for older dogs… And sure enough, it does! I would definately recommend this for anyone with an older dog to help them get through those senior days.”
“My in-laws gave me a Thundershirt after it didn’t work for their dog (an extremely high strung terrier.) Our pair of dachshunds are major barkers, with a BIG BARK for <10 lb dogs! Our little boy, born blind, would also try to snap at strangers out of fear. We put the Thundershirt on him and he slept through the doorbell ringing, a package being delivered, and he didn't cry when my husband left, or growl at his sisters when they all ate out of the same bowl! Plus he looks so dang adorable in it! We're now ordering them for our other dachshund and our cat for when we clip her claws."
