My poor Chihuahuas, Grace and Rocky both have a crippling fear of thunderstorms. Grace goes and hides under the covers of my bed everytime she hears it, or she tries to jump into my arms no matter what I’m doing. Rocky will hide behind the couch, or if it’s late at night and he’s sleeping on the couch while I’m in bed upstairs, he comes in, and wakes me up by crying and fidgeting around up by my neck.
As a doggy mom I feel so bad that there’s nothing more I can do to make him feel better. But now there is. The Thundershirt is seriously a life saver. It comes in all different sizes and it wraps around your pop and then velcroes shut to help them feel very secure. The pressure has an amazing effect on them! Over 80% of dogs show improvement, without needing expensive medication from the vet! I can fit mine on both Rocky AND Grace. It’s not just great for storms but also crate training, separation anxiety, leash pulling, hyper activity, and even fear of fireworks!

It didn’t take Rocky and Grace more than 5 minutes to get used to wearing it. They love it now and they can both move around just fine in it. It’s amazing and so easy to put on them and easy to take off. I am so glad I got to try this out because I get so stressed everytime there’s a storm and now I can actually sleep through the night!!
