The Thundershirt is on its way to your local Animates store!

The Thundershirt is great for dogs that suffer anxiety and from general fearfulness.

How It Works

Thundershirt's design applies gentle pressure on a dog's torso, and this pressure has an amazing calming effect for most dogs.

Pressure has been used to successfully reduce anxiety for many years for both animals and humans.  Examples include certain groups of dog trainers using pressure wraps for a wide variety of anxieties, veterinarians using squeeze chutes when vaccinating cattle and thousands of people with autism using pressure to relieve persistent anxiety.

There are 7 sizes available from XXS to XXL to fit any dog!

Use the Thundershirt for;

  • Fear of Thunder
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Barking Problems
  • Car or Travel Anxiety
  • Crate Anxiety
  • Leash Pulling
  • General Fearfullness
  • And lots more!

Stay tuned for more information and for the official release in May!

This is Bella from Pet HQ trying it out as she suffers from anxiety, and we have seen such an improvement in her anxiety and confidence!

Important Notice for Dog Owners

Pet Doctors clinics around the country are also reporting a small increase in the number of cases at this time of year. The virus is spread through the faeces of infected dog, or any surface the dog has contact with. Parvovirus mostly affects puppies between 2-6 months, but infection can occur at any age. Together we’ll check your vaccination records, and make sure everything is up-to-date.
