So, the Mom hopped on the internet and ordered Burt and me our very own Thundershirts! The website not only offered the original Heather Grey Thundershirt, but also a Pink Rugby and a Navy Rugby Thunder Shirt--perfect for diva Dixie and dashing Burt. We'll be stylin' real soon and we'll be ready for the next TStorms that roll through ChiTown!
For those pups not up on what Thundershirts are for, well, the name says it all. From their website, www.thundershirt.com :
With its patent-pending design, Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful or over-excited. It is this pressure that has a dramatic calming effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful or over-excited. From real world experience, we know with certainty that Thundershirt DOES WORK. That is why we are able to offer a money-back guarantee. Based on surveys completed by over 1,000 Thundershirt users, over 85% of dogs show significant improvement in anxiety symptoms when using Thundershirt.
Thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers now recommend Thundershirts for their anxiety cases. We recommend just putting on a Thundershirt and observing the results (No training!). You very well may see significant improvement for noise, crate, travel, barking and others with absolutely no training. For more complicated anxiety cases, we recommend using Thundershirt as part of a behavior modification program.
One thing is for certain, for a very large percentage of dogs, Thundershirt’s gentle, constant pressure has a terrific calming effect. This has obvious benefits for most types of anxiety. But Thundershirt is also a very useful tool for managing excitability or hyperactivity with strangers, on the leash, or in a training environment. Thundershirt’s calming effect helps a dog to focus (or refocus) her energies in a more constructive direction, allowing training to be more effective.
We'll bark back about our results ASAP!
Woooooooooo HOOOOOOOOOOO !!

Woofs to you, Jojo and sonja
