Dogs do get anxious too. Dogs can be anxious for many reasons and there are many effective ways to help an anxious dog. Does your dog have anxiety?
From petMD, anxiety is the “anticipation of future dangers from unknown or imagined origins.”
Does your dog warn you of impending stormy weather?
For the past months, Sugar was exhibiting odd behaviors. She has become very sensitive to the change in barometric pressure and weather changes like rain and thunderstorms. Severe weather is causing Sugar anxiety. ThunderShirt to the rescue. ThunderShirt is known to provide a calming effect for dogs suffering from anxiety.
ThunderShirt: Natural Dog Anxiety Treatment
Thunderworks sent Sugar their new ThunderShirt MLB Collection.
What is a ThunderShirt and How does a ThunderShirt work?
ThunderShirt is a garment that provides constant but gentle pressure on your dog’s body. Based on the theory that “pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system“, ThunderShirt calms down an anxious dog. From the ThunderShirt website, 80% of dogs who wear a thunder shirt show fewer symptoms of anxiety. Pet Parents can expect to see a significant improvement of their dog’s behavior with no training involved. I put ThunderShirt to the “Sugar Golden” test.
- Panting accompanied by some drooling
- Hiding behind her bed, end of the couch, or under a table
- Worried wide eyes with her ear(s) pinned back
- Making whining noises
- Refuses to have a treat
ThunderShirt Golden Verdict
Wearing the ThunderShirt diminished Sugar’s worries. Sugar was able to move around and settle on her bed. It took a while for her panting and drooling to stop. Her whining continued until the storm ended. I tried to distract her by giving her favorite treat, banana in a kong. She took it but would stop when I left her sight.
4 Golden Paws Up! It did calm Sugar down. ThunderShirt is a worthwhile natural option for a dog that struggle with anxiety. Lately, the weather has been odd and it seems that a thunderstorm is always on the radar. As a pet parent, I am prepared to help Sugar.
MLB ThunderShirt is made with 55% Polyester, 35% Rayon and 10% Spandex. The style is exactly the same as the original ThunderShirt. It takes 3 fitting steps and uses very durable velcro strips to put in place. Keep in mind: The size of the ThunderShirt is critical as it must hug your dog’s frame.
Have you tried the ThunderShirt with your dog? Love to hear your dog’s experience.
