A ThunderShirt History Lesson
Our Brand Story
It all started with a dog named Dosi over ten years ago! Dosi was terrified of thunderstorms and fireworks, and her family wanted to help. Fast forward a few months, and they had created the ThunderShirt. The idea is similar to swaddling an infant, and provides gentle, comforting pressure around a dog's torso.
While Dosi normally paced, panted, and barked during thunder, with a ThunderShirt, she laid down almost instantly, and was much calmer for the duration of any storms. Now ThunderShirts are helping millions of dogs around the world!

We found this product and read the reviews and had to try it. Now out dog is scared of everything so getting this on her for the first time took a lot of patients, a curse word or twelve, and a few beers. Once in her she mellowed right out. She not mind it at all. Never once tried to get it off.
Luck be hold that night we had a storm. She did great. She was a little anxious but not shaking or destroying the house.
It's not a complete fix but helps with our dogs crazy.
Worth a try.
We seeked out a rescue pit bull and he would become very stressed when I left the house as well as pacing around. This was still during our "trial run" and he was not bonded to us quite yet. We wanted to make it work with him so we bought the thundershirt and calming treats. Prior to shirt he broke out of crate several times, destroyed our window blinds and would cry. Post shirt he relaxes most times except when it's play time and work time (walking). He's bonded to us now and he's doing great. When he's not wearing it he seems a little more anxious. He likes the shirt as he stands still waiting for me to Velcro him in. We take it off every day for awhile so his coat can breath.
I'll be purchasing a second so we can rotate to wash regularly. Plus I think he'll look good in teal green :)
Bonus feature is they make him appear might more approachable. His ears were "cropped" (poorly, with scissors) and he's very large with a big block white head. The thundershirt makes him look as friendly and sweet as he is.
Scarlett is a boxer/pit mix, 65lbs and the size large shirt fits her perfectly.
I can't say enough about this product. It literally saved us & her!!!! Well worth the cost!
The shirt came today and the gardeners were due shortly. I thought , I need to acclimate her to the shirt before having a real life situation..so I put it on her thinking she would try to take it off.. Hmmm, she tolerated it. The she stood calmly by my side..we went outside and she lay by my feet and fell asleep. Hmm! Good start I thought. I removed it. About 30 min later the gardeners arrived and she began barking and growling. I put the shirt back on and she settled right down. Instead of lunging at the window, slobbering all over and barking, she calming lay at my feet, only softly growling. Could this be? Could it be this easy? So it seems..the real test will be next week when I take her to the vet. But my initial reaction is “Wow, this is amazing,” Why did I wait so long...? It’s a miracle...stay tuned for the vet visit..

I felt bad for her living in this constant state of anxiety and so thought I'd give the ThunderShirt a whirl.
And WOW! So glad I did. INSTANT calm.
My husband came in from the outside and instead of barking and rushing over she just sat there, cool as a cucumber and watched him come in! I've deliberately left the house several times now, and no reaction. Nothing.
She's super chilled. And she seems to like being in it too.
I've now taught her the word for her shirt and tell her when I'm going to put it on. She let's me do it no problem, so I know she likes it.
I couldn't recommend this product enough. Such a small price to pay for a brilliant solution to dog anxiety.
I bought one of these years ago from a pet shop randomly for my Staffy who has serious separation anxiety and obsessive tail chasing issues.
I used it on him and it defo helped so much that I didn’t need to use it and forgot I had one!
But I travel with my dogs (I now have 4, a shih tzu, Staffy, bullmastiff and blue French bulldog). which means long days in the car and over night on the ferry in kennels for them.
My Shih Tzu is very highly strung and even though the vets would give him tablets for travel he would still get so worked up he’d chew the kennel till he would bleed his gums! We even tried flying them instead and same outcome.
It was either stop travelling with them (really not an option as life dictates travel) or find a new solution.
Then I remembered this coat!! Couldn’t find them anywhere online in Ireland but thankfully Amazon came to the rescue!!
Ordered and arrived before we were due to travel and I used them on the way over and back on the ferry and guess what........No bleeding gums and not highly stressed dogs!!!
And no highly stressed Human!! As I dreaded the kennels on the ferry as I never knew how they’d be when I’d check on them and the upset of having to put them back in during the journey knowing they were hurting themselves also.
I used this over and thought maybe it’s just a fluke.......Then came back (summertime and was not going to put it on as thought it would be too warm for them, but saw a vet in the US recommending them for the 4th of July so knew wouldn’t be too warm!), and again No upset or hurt dogs.
Chilled and happy. Of course they were still happy to get off the ferry and out of the kennels. But they were chilled and not bleeding!!
Really Highly recommend and will be a regular in our routine from now on.
I put them on and off the dogs a couple of days before travel for them to get used to wearing them and get the smell of “home” etc.
Sorry for long assed review 😊
Then someone suggested a thunder shirt. I'd always thought that the concept was a bit strange, but by now I would try anything; he was waking me every night with his paw chewing etc and I felt so sorry for him.
From the moment I put it on him, it has WORKED! He's snoozing on the couch next to me now, whereas before he would have been fussing, scratching, unable to settle.
He wears it all the time, except when we go out for his daily walks, and he is a different dog. And I get to sleep through the night!
I have bought a second shirt so that one is always available. It may not work for your dog, but for us it was nothing short of a miracle cure.
He doesn't hide, shake or get frightened. He barks. A lot. Shouting at whatever it is that's making the noise he doesn't like.
Then he gets all panty and miffed taking ages to calm down again.
Bought the thundershirt to try as he is a cuddle bunny bless him.
Last night was the ultimate test. New year fireworks and they didn't hold back on the bangs.
Thundershirt was on him since 9pm ready and when they all started at midnight, yes he barked. Of course he would but the difference? He was calm again within an hour and not the normal 3-4 hours.
So yes, I would say this does help. Helped me get to sleep as well knowing he was calmer so soon.
If you have a nervous dog just buy one they do work if it doesn’t you can just get your money back
When you first get the jacket it looks complicated to put on but once you wrap the bit round the neck it’s obvious how to put the rest on. I don’t know how or why it works but it does. It’s also best if after putting the jacket on you ignore the dog and not make a fuss of them, it certainly works for us. So well worth the money. Thank you, thank you thank you.
We bought the Thunder Shirt with low expectations to be honest because she hasn't responded noticeably to other calming in the treatments in the past. But she definitely calms down straight away with it on! The velcro wrap across the back somehow reassures her.
I even put it on her when a friend arrived who she finds frightening (for no particular reason) and she stopped hiding behind me and seeking corners in the kitchen. We're very pleased with it - and I suspect Maizy is too!!
I went home and ordered him one the same day. It came the next day and I put it on him.
OMG he just couldn't stand up with it on, he just kept falling over and made no attempt to save himself. It was awful to see so I took it off him and waited until bed time when he starts pacing and can't settle thinking it would help him settle quicker. No he just laid down and panted full on which was also distressing do I took it off him.
The next evening near bedtime I tried again and this time he did settle eventually but it certainly didn't appear that the thunder shirt helped him in any way. It seemed to just confuse him to the point that he could not stand up on his own with it on.
Ii was so disappointed. It's a lot of money for, what was surprisingly lightweight, and not only it really didn't work it made him worse.
Mira ist eine sehr sensible anhängliche Hüte Hündin die uns, insbesondere mich, lieber nicht aus den Augen lässt. Das hat ihr bereits den Spitznamen "Shadow" eingebracht. Wenn ich mich vom Sofa erhebe ist steht sie sofort auf und läuft hinterher, wartet im Zweifel vor der Badezimmer Tür oder bewacht die Wohnungstür. Ich kann sie zwar zurück schicken aber entspannt ist sie dabei nie. Sobald ich von der Arbeit komme(sie bleibt mit meinem Partner im Homeoffice) läuft sie schon beim Geräusch des Schlüssels zur Tür, hebt vor Schwanzwedeln fast ab und kann es kaum erwarten meine Aufmerksamkeit zu bekommen. Sie wird von mir solange nicht begrüßt bis sie entspannt ist.
Wenn Mira über das Wochenende mal bei meiner Schwägerin ist leidet sie sehr an der Trennung. Das wollen wir langfristig verbessern. Sie soll insgesamt entspannter werden, auch ohne uns im Blick haben zu müssen.
Vor 3 Tagen kam das Shirt an. Ich kam nach Hause und nachdem ich meine Sachen abgelegt hatte ging ich auf die Suche nach ihr: Sie lag ruhend auf dem Sofa und sah mich nur entspannt an. Sie trug das Shirt :)
Wenn wir auf dem Sofa sitzen kann ich einfach aufstehen, den Raum oder die Wohnung verlassen und sie schaut nur träge hinterher. Sie hat weder ihre sonst typisch angespannte Körperhaltung noch muss ich sie mit Kommandos dazu bringen, das Shirt scheint ihr dabei zu helfen entspannt zu bleiben.
Sobald wir es ihr abnehmen nimmt sie wieder die unentspannten Muster an und läuft uns nach.
Wir sind extrem positiv überrascht und arbeiten mit Mira daran diese Entspannung weiterhin zu verinnerlichen und auf lange Sicht auch ohne Shirt entspannt zu sein.
Absolut Kaufempfehlung, ist allemal ein Versuch wert!
