Don’t mind changing the subject on this one. Does anyone have any experience with the “thunder jacket” for dogs?
Wrap your dog with duct tape. It works and it’s cheap.
No, but this version, at least, seems pretty well reviewed.
Yes, I strapped one on my Doberman during a thunderstorm and he went to the back porch and laid down, hasn’t moved since.
I may have made it a little too tight as that was a week ago and he’s still right there but all swollen up and really smells bad!
So I don’t recommend it for overly frisky husbands. They’ll be o.k. on the back porch without it.
We got the “Thunder Shirt” (see post #26). They don’t always work (80% success I think?), so keep the receipt...
It made a noticeable difference for us — didn’t eliminate the problem, but really reduced the dog’s apparent anxiety to almost nothing. I’d say it’s definitely worth trying.
I don’t know how it works on other dogs but it does not work on my Shih Tzu during thunder storms or fireworks.
