“WOW!!! I would not have believed it possible but the Thundershirt has been such a blessing for our English Shepard Shelby… She used to try to practically climb inside one of us when a storm was approaching but now we put on her Thundershirt and it calms her down immediately. We got one for our Lab too even though her reaction was not extreme… They look really cute together when they both have them on. Thank you so much for developing this product… IT WORKS…”
“We adopted our dog 10 years ago. She was living in a soccer field across the street from our favorite taco stand. We live on a small Island off the coast of Cancun Mexico, Isla Mujeres. The taco stand owners named her Clienta because she was a female customer. Up until last September, I dreaded hurricane season & all the Mexican holidays with fireworks. Clienta would shake, pant, paw me do death with her nails & then started “digging” through couches, beds, chairs, etc. After shredding some Egyptian sheets I was at my wits end. Putting her in a crate didn’t work. She would try to claw her way & I was afraid she would cut up her pads.
My mother sent me an article about the Thundershirt. A week later a client in our restaurant was telling me about it after I had to excuse myself from taking her order to call my babysitter & ask her to go comfort Clienta during a storm. And then the next week, while on vacation in Flagstaff, AZ I saw an article tacked up in a ladies room about the Thundershirt. I figured it must be a sign.
I had to make an unexpected trip to the States. I had it sent two day mail to my parent’s house in NY. When I first saw it I wondered if I had been duped. A week later back on Isla Mujeres, we had a terrible tropical storm, I called my babysitter & asked her to put the Thundershirt on Clienta. That day when I arrived home from work. My babysitter was talking a mile a minute in Spanish, I am far from fluent but I did pick up ,“Clienta mucho nerviouso” then “tranquilo”. It was a few days later when I witnessed the magic.
Clienta is a new dog while wearing her Thundershirt. She eats, she sleeps. She even asks for it when she senses a storm coming. She goes to the drawer it is in & paws the drawer. It is truly amazing.
I cannot thank you enough for your research & development. I now sleep soundly during the New Year’s eve celebrations that start at midnight & go until 5am. My sheets are all intact & while my couch needs to be replaced I will wait until my young children grow up some before we get a new one. Thank you again!”
“I just had to tell you how GREAT the Thundershirt is. It has made such a difference in my two boys during the very bad storms we have been experiencing in our area. I live near the ocean and the ground lightening and thunder is fierce.
We were not at home when one of these storms came on suddenly and when we walk in the house the boys had pulled their shirts onto the floor of the little antique rocking chair where we keep them. It appeared they were trying to put them on to feel safe.
I am sending you their pictures along with a BIG THANK YOU! I hope you enjoy meeting Polar Bear & Grizzly Bear, two very special Pomeranians.”
“Well, my dog, Oscar, just loves his Thundershirt. As you can see from the
attached picture, he is very calm during our recent thunderstorm. Without
his Thundershirt on, he is wrapped in my arms trying to get even closer to
me than he already is. He even growls when I take it off, which I interpret
to mean that he approves! Thank you for all your help and understanding.”
“While shopping in PetSmart with my dog, Sasha, a huge thunderstorm erupted. Sasha was terrified. She cleared out one of the shelves, backed into the shelf and wouldn’t move. I sat on the floor of PetSmart, gently rubbing her, trying to coax her to come out of the shelf. There was no way she was moving. The employees and patrons came by and commented on how cute she was, but in fact, she was terribly frightened.
After about twenty minutes, one of the PetSmart employees came over and asked me about the Thunder Shirt. I told him I was willing to try it, so he went to pick one out for me. I put the shirt on her and it was amazing. She walked out of the store with me and seemed to be comfortable. Once I got her home, she didn’t want to take it off.
Sasha can vouch for the Thunder Shirt. She loves it!”
“I can’t brag enough about this Thundershirt! Anyone who owns a dog with anxiety issues should invest in one for sure! This time, my dachshund is sleeping soundly beside me through a storm – Not because of me, but because she is wearing her Thundershirt!! It is amazing folks, I have been passing the word around and all my friends are buying one for their dogs who HAD thunder anxieties.. Yes, past tense… it really works!!!!”
“Simon Bones loves his thundershirt!! He is so much calmer through storms and traveling. Thank you so much )”
“I don’t very often contact a company who makes a product that lives up its claim (which I probably should) but I was compelled to write you. My little Papillon was a trembling, panting mess when either a storm hit or we went for a ride in the car. Now when she wears her Thundershirt I cannot get over the change in her. Her ears perk up a bit because she knows something’s coming but in no time at all she’s calmed down and even sleeps! That has NEVER happened before. Thank you for making a product that really works!!”
“Since I keep my parents awake when it thunders and rains they bought me this Thundershirt. It holds me tight like a body suit so I can control my anxiety. It stops me from crying, scratching the door and running around. I really like it cause it is gray like me.”
“We adopted Gizmo from a local shelter. He suffered fear anxieties. He panted, shook and clung to us when it stormed and with loud noises. A friend on Facebook suggested ‘Thundershirt.’ We followed the simple suggestions of introducing the Thundershirt to him and he liked it from the start. Now, when it rains, or with loud noise, we snuggly wrap the shirt around him and he SLEEPS!!! NO MORE panting, trembling or pacing!!! In only 1 week, POSITIVE reinforcement and Thundershirt have erased Gizmo’s fears!!!”
