We finally got a chance to test out the Thundershirt to see if it actually works in a storm or not. It stormed pretty hard one night last week.
I have to say it works a little bit but does not work wonders for Riley like it does for some other dogs. She was still anxious during the storm and ended up sleeping most of the night underneath my bed. But…she didn’t pant or shake like she normally does, so that was good.
I was worried at first that she was going to get too hot with it on, but it seems pretty breathable and when I stuck my hand between the Thundershirt and her fur, it felt the same as the rest of her exposed fur, so that was good.
I’ll use it again, but don’t really feel like the results were worth my $40. All in all, I can’t say it’s a fantastic product, but I can say it works to a point. That’s just my opinion on it and how it works for my individual dog. If it works better for you, that’s fabulous!!
