Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog Reviews by Real Customers at

I have a highly anxious young dog – he is anxious about many things, but is phobic about the car. This is a big deal for us, as we do a lot of traveling, so it was important to us that his phobia did not escalate to the point where he refused to get into the car. Having done a lot of research on Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog, I finally took the plunge and bought one. Result!!! The last few journeys have seen this dog sitting calmly and happily – even whining with pleasure at an anticipated favorite walk – where previously he was agitated, panting and drooling.

One caveat – phobias in dogs are not simple things, and relying on one Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog to “fix” your dog without taking other measures is unrealistic. So in addition to the shirt we have put in place other behavioural measures and taken a multi-faceted approach to help the dog overcome his dread of the car. BUT the Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog has been a significant factor in the whole programme – we have tested its effect by observing behaviour when various aspects of the programme were not used – so we KNOW the shirt has helped as part of the programme.

I would recommend these Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog, they are well made, well thought through – and work, especially when used in conjunction with other anti-fear reinforcers.

And finally – we have a happy little dog!:)

Well since acquiring a Rough Collie at age 6 I discovered very soon he does not like loud noises. Understatement since he climbs on top of anything and everything whether I am home or not.

I have spent a fortune over the last 4 years trying a variety of things designed to help? This includes Firework cd’s, DAPS, anxiety drops of various kinds, and even last year I bought specially designed ear muffs for dogs in cockpits but helped dogs with noise problems.

These have either helped a little or not at all or made things worse in the case of the ear muffs cos he didnt like them on his ears.

So every year I have to sit with him in a room with either TV or stereo full blast unable to do anything other than sit with him with him on his leash and both sit out the manic panic of a dog trying to scramble on everything (including me 25kg of dog on your head is not fun) I might add he is very obedient otherwise.

Then this year I decided earlier in the year to buy one of these Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog having seem videos of dogs changing from fear to calmness & I thought well I might as well try Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog this might just work.

Well I tried it during a bad thunderstorm and although he was still anxious was much better than normal and either paced or sat fairly calmly. Same rest of year but tonight has been a test of the highest degree. Firework night and despite the dampness there have been bangs and whistles for the last couple of hours and although I have the stereo on in the background we can both hear the sounds in the background & if I can still hear them he must be, HOWEVER with his new Thundershirt Anxiety Coat on he is so much calmer even accepting a treat when calm, and playing with his ball, but mostly he is laying in his fav spot by the door and very very calm when there is an exceptional bang or whizzing sound he clearly hears it and paces a little but soon settles down.

It is almost like having a different dog. If you have a noise phobic dog get one of these Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog. Flash being a Rough Collie has very sensitive hearing and is a very sensitive dog. More so than my old Sheltie and Collie/Retriever cross.

For the peace and calm and seeing him so much calmer and happier I would have paid twice the price for this Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog

A Plus is its easy to fit even on a hairy, shaggy dog like a Rough Collie & he does not object to having it on either.

I could not wait to review the Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog! I have a little rescue dog who is terrified of the car. I have never seen such terror and when she sees we are going in the car she curls up on the ground and starts salivating. She is sick in the car and is a shaking mess despite sitting on my lap getting cuddled. As we travel to Ireland for frequent visits to family this has been a nightmare and we have had to resort to doping her up but even then she salivated and shook and took days to recover after the journey. I saw Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog in the pet shop and checked it out on Amazon where it was considerably cheaper. I decided to try it as we were going to Ireland for Christmas, but laughed as I bought Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog as could not imagine it would have any effect.

WRONG! We had a great journey with no salivating, no shaking and trembling and no sickness in the car. She actually went off to sleep quite happily. I don’t know how it works, I just know it really does work! It is a miracle for us as we can now travel without the trauma for our little dog and us.

We bought this “Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog” for our 6-month-old Whippet pup for separation anxiety. Despite having left him from day one and having built-up leaving him very gradually, he would still bark if left alone without our other dog and bark if left for longer than 45-mins with our other dog. He was only ever left for a maximum of 2-hours, but because the neighbour worked shifts, we felt like prisoners in our own home.

The Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog has meant that we can now leave him for over 1.5-hours with our other dog without even a peep from him. We could probably leave him for longer, but have not yet needed to do so. He will now amuse himself with his stuffed Kong whilst we are away, whereas before he’d simply ignore it until we got home. He is far better when left alone without our other dog – he still sometimes barks, but does not howl constantly from the moment he’s left until the moment we return, like he did before. We have found leaving a pair of socks with our scent on and the TV on also helps.

A surprising side-benefit of getting the Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog is how much more focused and calm he is at his pre-agility and obedience classes.

He was not bothered about the fireworks the other night. He is still bothered by big lorries going past whilst out on a walk, so we haven’t noticed a difference in helping with that (but it’s not a big issue for him).

We notice a huge difference when he’s wearing his Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog around the house – he doesn’t badger our other dog and is a lot calmer. For those people who have a hyper puppy and would like a natural way to calm their pup, then this is a great possibility. (Although avoiding dog food containing any kind of artificial additives would be the first thing to try.)

All in all a great product and we have just ordered our second Thundershirt Anxiety Coat for Dog, so that he has one to wash and one to wear.
