Is your dog anxious? Maybe a little nervous around other dogs or strangers? Barks at other dogs? Doesn’t like to be left alone? Perhaps stresses in the car or with strange noises?
At TNT Kennels we recommend the Thundershirt. The Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a tremendous calming effect and the Thundershirt can be an important part of the training programs offered at TNT.
Thundershirt’s calming effects can greatly reduce issues related to walking on leash, barking, travel anxiety, separation anxiety, reactivity, or just general hyperactivity and excitability. For example, Thundershirt has been used with terrific results for dogs that become overly excited when visitors arrive at their home. Thundershirt has been used to calm dogs on leashes and allow the dog to be more focused on the owner’s “requests”. Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a tremendous calming effect and the Thundershirt can be an important part of a simple training program. (http://www.thundershirt.com )
“I have been fostering a dog with severe fear and anxiety issues and the Thundershirt has been an integral part of my training program with Aspen. She wears the shirt when left alone, meeting new people and generally when exposed to new environments or situations. It helps to calm her in order for her to see the good things life has to offer”
