    I wanted to try one while Pollywog was alive but we didn't find it until just a few months before she passed. We never did get one. However, if you've seen the movie Temple Grandin it would seem like it would work based on the fact that being compressed, so to speak, like that would help. If you think about it, you swaddle babies in a blanket and it works for them. :)

    A friend has an anxious dog and swears by the Thundershirt.

    It did not work for my dog, but the thunder was right above our house. It does calm him when it is farther away.

    Haven't had a need to try one.

    My beagle mix Miley has one. It works so beautifully. I put it on her any time she seems anxious

    Gypsy LOVES her thunder-shirt. Hubby calls it the narcolepsy vest because she will fall asleep wearing it.

  My beagle has very bad separation anxiety...we have been using the thundershirt for about 2 years now, and it was the best investment we ever made! Buy it!!!!

    I was told by both my vet an groomer that they know people that say it does work. I need to get one for my Chihuahua. He freaks out anytime there is rain or other bad weather. I have to give him medicine to calm down on 4th of July and New Years.
