The history of Thundershirt is truly a story of a common problem in need of a simple solution. Thundershirt’s founder Phil Blizzard’s dog Dozi was terrified of loud noises like thunder and fireworks, after trying drugs and desensitization Phil and his family spent years with no positive way of helping Dozi, then the idea of a pressure wrap came to them and within minutes of the first Thundershirt worn by Dozi she was relaxed and sleeping throughout the noise.

The development team at Thundershirt had 5 main objectives:
1/ Easy to put on and take off.
2/ Easy to create a snug, comfortable fit.
3/ Attractive, durable fabric that resists collecting hair.
4/ Attractive looking when worn.
5/ Inexpensive.
Thundershirt has met all these requirements and is now available to help canines worldwide.

Thundershirt is effective, risks no side effects and requires little to no time commitment from dog owners.


Why does Thundershirt work?

Thundershirt’s patent-pending design is a pressure wrap that applies a gentle, constant pressure on a dog’s torso. From real world experience, we know with certainty that Thundershirt DOES WORK. That is why we are able to offer a money-back guarantee. A survey of Thundershirt users shows that over 80% of dogs show significant improvement in at least one anxiety symptom when using Thundershirt.
According to some experts such as Dr. Temple Grandin, pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years. For example:

TTouch dog trainers use pressure to address a variety of anxieties.

Veterinarians use pressure to relax cattle when they are administering vaccinations.

Some autistic people use pressure to relieve their persistent anxiety.

Until now, there just hasn’t been a well-designed, inexpensive pressure wrap commonly used for canine anxiety.

For what types of symptoms will Thundershirt work?

For many dogs, Thundershirt is effective for a wide variety of anxiety symptoms. For travel anxiety, those symptoms include shaking, panting, drooling, barking/whining, hyperactivity, and even vomiting.

Why doesn’t my vet know about this remedy for anxiety and fear issues?

Good question! With millions of dogs suffering from anxiety, it amazes us that such an easy to use, inexpensive solution like Thundershirt isn’t more widely known and used. Thundershirt is working to change that; we have launched an outreach campaign for veterinarians. If you would like us to speak with your veterinarian, please contact us.

What training is required for using Thundershirt for anxiety and fear issues?

For many types of anixety… none! Just put Thundershirt onto your dog and you will likely see results with the very first usage. However, for some dogs, it may take two to three usages to see results. For some more serious anxiety cases, such as severe separation anxiety, you should consult a good trainer for how to integrate Thundershirt into a training program.

How tight is “too tight”?

Thundershirt should only have comfortable pressure on your dog. How do you judge “comfortable”? You should be able to easily slip you fingers under the Thundershirt. For the next straps, they should only be gently stretched… no pressure is needed around the front chest area; the benefit from Thundershirt comes from the pressure around the torso behind the front legs. When securing the torso straps, you should be stretching the fabric, but it does not require any strenuous force.

Can I wash and dry Thundershirt? Remove hair from Velcro hooks?

Thundershirt is made with durable, washable fabric. When necessary, Thundershirt may be washed in a regular cycle using regular laundry detergent and warm water. Hang to dry.
If necessary, to remove dog hair from your Thundershirt’s velcro, we recommend using a standard dog “slicker” brush (Available at most pet stores). A couple of strokes and the velcro hooks will be nearly completely hair-free.

Are there any special sizing and fit considerations for male dogs?

When fitting a Thundershirt on a male dog, the straps that go around the stomach area should not cover or push on the genitals or prepuce. If the Thundershirt rubs against the genitals or prepuce, irritation may result.

How long can my dog wear Thundershirt?

Thundershirt is comfortable and safe to wear for extended periods.

Is overheating a concern when using a Thundershirt?

Except in hot conditions (i.e. 32 degrees Celsius or greater), overheating is not typically a concern when using a Thundershirt. Dogs cool themselves primarily through their mouths and paws, and a Thundershirt is constructed of a thin, breathable fabric. The state of Florida is one of our biggest markets. But if you feel that overheating might be a problem for your particular circumstance, please monitor your dog for any signs of overheating such as heavy panting or tongue hanging out of the mouth. Remove the Thundershirt if you see any signs of overheating.

Will my dog eventually no longer need Thundershirt for separation anxiety?

That’s very possible. As your dog learns to be more comfortable alone with the use of Thundershirt and any training you undertake, over time, your dog may learn to enjoy “independence” without any help at all. Just say goodbye on your way out and be comfortable that your dog and your house will be intact when you return!
