Thunder Shirts

My youngest brother called me yesterday and asked me if I hd ever heard of a Thunder Shirt. I had, but had been a long time. He said his son's pit bull, Deezle (she is a marshmallow from theword go) and his daughters13" begle were terrified of thunder and fire works.Piper the beagle would hide during thunder storm and they would not even be able to find her, and Deezle would shiver and pants and cower. This also happened when they hearde fir works.

He and his wife went to Pet Smart to try to get over the counter tranka for those twoandthe person suggeted a Thunder Shirt.He remember his daughter had mentioned thembefore, so they decided to trythem. Bought one for ech dog andneither one paid one iota to the fireworks New Year's Eve--even with them shooting some in their yard.

He had not really believed they would work, but said buying those two thunder shirts was the best $80 he had ever spent as both dogs remained as calm as their mix breed that nothing bothers.

I used a Thundershirt for Apollo, he was scared of his own shadow. It really worked great but I didn't believe it until I saw it with my own eyes

I have a Thunder shirt for my girl Roxy, she is a former puppy mill momma and had many issues when I first got her.

She developed Separation Anxiety and was destructive, worked great. I haven't had to use it much over the last few months, but I can see an immediate difference in her overall being when she has it on. She is very relaxed.
