Why does the Thundershirt work for most dogs?
The calming effect of gentle pressure has been used for years by veterinarians when administering vaccinations. Even people with autism and children with behavioral problems use pressure shirts and weighted vests to help relax and focus!
How to use Thundershirt:
We recommend putting the Thundershirt on your dog and observing the results - no training necessary! For more complicated anxiety cases, use the Thundershirt as an addition to a behavior modification program recommend by your vet.
For the first use of Thundershirt, we recommend offering a small amount of food to your dog- using the Thundershirt as a plate! Studies have shown that dogs become more comfortable and trusting of something that "brings" them food (or is associated with food).
