Travel Anxiety

“Hi, My name is Buddy. I’m a former medical research beagle who gets so car sick that the only thing that works for my nausea is Cerenia (prescription). Every time we go to our cabin in the mountains, I have to take Cerenia in order to survive the trip. Well, here’s good news for all of us who struggle with doggy motion sickness. I now have a Thundershirt. I thought it was just some crazy shirt I had to wear to look cute. Well, let me tell you, I love it. Now I can travel drug free. I feel much better about going in the car, where I hunker down and sleep most of the way. Thundershirt works for me. No vomiting, no wrestlessness, no pooping, no anxiety. Thundershirt works for me. Now my sister beagle is wearing one too. We former research doggies are anxious about pretty much everything. Thanks, Thundershirt, we appreciate you.”

“If anyone has ever thought, wondered, scoffed, or considered buying a Thundershirt for their critter… Ziggy is total proof that it works. The $40 price tag paid for itself within 10 minutes. The dog that was whimpering, clawing, having a complete spaz attack on the way into the store (pre-Thundershirt)… Came out with a wagging tail and slack leash (wearing said Thundershirt). The girl at the Humane Society wrangled her into this thing in record time and there was an instant, and I mean INSTANT change in Ziggy. She stood there at the end of her leash, in her new pretty pink shirt, letting people pet her – Even men (who she normally hates) without as much as a concerned look about her.

Now to mention the adventures of Ziggy in the car… Window to window, seat to seat… All over the place. (Enter Thundershirt) She was rewarded with a new bone. She took it and LAID DOWN on the seat next to Natalie. SHE FREAKING LAID DOWN IN THE CAR.”

“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!!”

“Lindie had such a fear of traveling that she would start shaking just putting her in the car. She would start vomiting after about 20 minutes of riding. We realized that it was anxiety, and not motion sickness, after nausea medications did not work. A sedative relaxed her enough to travel without getting sick, but I hated to drug her. I really had my doubts about the Thundershirt, but decided it was worth a try. We just returned from a trip that was 4 hours each way, and she did great! She was so relaxed, we couldn’t believe it!”

“We rescued Abby from a shelter, the week before Christmas, 2011.

We don’t know her history, but found that she gets anxious in the car and at other people’s homes. Even at our home, she was licking her paws and lips a lot.

We’ve only been using the Thundershirt for a week, but what a difference! She comes to me when I ask her if she wants her shirt on and wags while I’m adjusting it.
When she’s in the house, I put it on her in the evenings and she no longer licks, but curls up in her bed and relaxes, or sleeps!

In the car, she still wants to watch out the windows, but doesn’t incessantly whine!

We are VERY pleased with the results and are happy that this helps Abby’s quality of life! She’s only about 6, so we want her remaining years to be fun and stress free.
Thanks for helping us achieve this goal!”

“Shadow is a shepherd mix who becomes very anxious in the car and at the training center where I train him in obedience. He usually acts like he’s hyperventilating, pants and whines and just generally freaks out in the car and constantly whines and paces at the training center. I never thought this would work and I was skeptical when my boss gave me one as a gift. I figured I would be giving it back to her the next day because it wouldn’t work. I put it on 15 minutes before leaving for training. Shadow slept the entire car ride and immediately laid down and relaxed when we sat down to wait for our class to start. This is such a great product with instant results and I am getting 2 more for my other dogs, one that has constant barking and the other who has separation anxiety. I am definitely a believer in the Thundershirt!”

I am very impressed and so happy with the effectiveness the Thundershirt has had with my dog’s anxiety while traveling. Our van has a lowered floor to accommodate my wheelchair and this makes the floor of the van quite close to the ground resulting in quite a bit of vibration and noise when going over bumps. My dog would stand, pant, and brace herself against the back seat while riding. Since wearing the Thundershirt the panting has stopped and she is laying down for at least 90% of the time while riding. I feel like I have a new dog…..she is more relaxed and much happier while riding! It has worked wonders with my dog and has been a huge success! I have recommended the Thundershirt to others and am hoping their success with this product will be as positive as mine has been.
