     Dog Thunder Shirts

How do Thunder Shirts Work?

It is believed that a constant pressure over the body has a calming effect on the nervous system. It is not fully understood but it may trigger the release of calming hormones such as endorphins. The use of pressure to assist with the relief of anxiety in humans and animals has been common practice for some time.

Many parents have discovered the almost magical calming effect of swaddling their babies. Wrapping a baby snuggly in a blanket calms the baby.

Dogs with Fear of Thunder Storms

Thunder Shirts have proved to be very beneficial in treating a dog's thunder storm phobia.

Many dogs suffer from a fear of thunder. Your dog may suffer from an irrational fear of storms. Signs of this fear can display as trembling and shaking, hiding in areas such as under beds or under furniture, trying to get close to you, howling, barking and panting & drooling.

Dogs have been known to flee in storms. They will break out of yards and run not knowing where they are going. They can destroy walls, gates, doors and furniture and fittings in their fear to escape the noise of the storm (or fireworks). During a storm their anxiety and stress levels are very high and it is difficult to calm them.

Where to Buy Thunder Shirts?
