    The Thundershirt - How it works

    The Thundershirt applies a gentle and constant pressure on your dog's body. This pressure has a calming effect on most fearful, stressed or excitable dogs.

    Scientists believe that the pressure created by the Thundershirt releases calming hormones (such as endorphins). This principle of applying gentle pressure to the torso to reduce anxiety has already been proven effective on infants or those with autism.

     

    Can the Thundershirt have a positive effect on dogs?

    Using the Thundershirt has proven to be helpful for most dogs. A survey of owners of more than 2000 dogs showed that in more than 80% of dogs (4 dogs out of 5), the improvement was significant.

     

    When should the Thundershirt be used?

    • Fear of storms
    • Fear of fireworks or firecrackers
    • Travel stress
    • Easily excitable dogs
    • Separation anxiety
    • Fear of noise
    • Excessive barking

    How to use the Thundershirt

    Mode d'emploi Thundershirt

     

    If required, your dog can wear the Thundershirt for long periods without problem, as it is made of a light fabric that allows the skin to breathe. However, if your dog must wear it for more than 2 hours, we recommend removing the Thundershirt every 2 hours to make sure there are no areas of the body that are becoming irritated (this is rare, but it is better to be on the safe side).

    Because the fabric of the Thundershirt is thin and breathable, there is no risk of your dog becoming overheated. If it is very hot (30̊ C), you should still check to make sure your dog is not too hot by making sure it is not panting excessively. Thundershirt is an American brand - these t-shirts are being used in Florida, where it can get very hot.

    Tee-shirt anti stress

    bien enveloppant, facile d'utilisation pas d'explication en français sur l'emballage Ce tee-shirt est bien conçu et bien fini, de bonne qualité. Même s'il n'est pas toujours facile d'évaluer le ressenti d'un animal, je sens mon chien plus apaisé (c'est un York un peu peureux), il accepte facilement de le porter. De plus lorsqu'il est toiletté, le thundershirt lui sert également de protection contre le froid. Il n'y a pas d'explication en français sur l'emballage, il faut se référer à celles du site et il faut faire attention à choisir la bonne taille car l'efficacité du tee-shirt en dépend.
