Pete the Vet (Pete Wedderburn) talks about Thundershirts on Irish Breakfast Television
Thundershirt is the original pet compression shirt, from the USA to help dogs with anxiety and fear issues. The Thundershirt has been tried and tested over a number of years with incredible results. Click here to read the full results of a trial carried out with 1,999 anxious dogs in the USA. This trial showed that Thundershirt has over 80% sucess rate, much higher than conventional anxiety medication.The Thundershirt uses Tellington TTouch principles to apply gently constant pressure to the dog that creates a calming effect on most anxious, fearful, noise sensitive and over excited dogs. These thunder coats or vests have the most amazing calming effect on dogs. Thundershirts are used worldwide and are even being endorsed by vets, trainers, behaviourist and Tellington TTouch practitioners both sides of the Atlantic. The dog thunder shirt is not so much a full-on dog coat, but an anxiety wrap that is easy to put on by dog owners. In some cases they will work on cats too.
The Thundershirt is also in keeping with the Tellington TTouch philosophy and recommended by Tellington TTouch instructors; Linda Tellington Jones, Kathy Cascade, Sarah Fisher and many practitioners including Marie Miller as well as using body wraps.

American Vet Dr. Temple Grandin believes that the gently pressure applied by the Thundershirt has a calming effect on the dog’s nervous system. For years pressure has been used for relieve anxiety. For example:
* TTouch practitioners use pressure to address a wide variety of anxieties.
* Vets use pressure to relax cattle when they are administering vaccinations.
* People with autism use pressure to relieve their persistent anxiety.
* Children with certain behavioural problems use pressure shirts and weighted vests to relax and focus.
* Parents use swaddling to calm an inconsolable new born infant.
Until now, the only option has been a body wrap which is hard to administer and only suitable for short-term use. Thundershirt has changed that! Thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers now recommend Thundershirts for their anxiety cases.
Marie Miller, one of the UK's leading dog behaviourists and a Tellington TTouch practitioner says "
"As one would expect from the name, Thundershirts can be extremely helpful for sound sensitive dogs, especially as one can't always predict when the next thunderstorm, firework or crop scarer bang is going to cause an upset. Thundershirts can also be hugely helpful when working with dogs who bark reactively, shrink away nervously or struggle with car travel and sickness. They are definitely a welcome addition to my tool kit to help some of the less confident puppies and dogs to settle into Paws'n'Learn's small group classes."
“We use Thundershirts at my clinic and the feedback from our clients is very positive.”
Dr. Donald Heagren, DVM
