By applying gentle pressure around the torso, like a comforting and continuous hug, the Dog Anxiety Vest helps to calm and reduce anxiety in over 80% of dogs. From a Chihuahua to a Great Dane, millions of dogs have already been helped by the calming effects of the Dog Anxiety Vest.
A Dog Anxiety Vest History Lesson
It all started with a dog named Dosi over ten years ago! Dosi was terrified of thunderstorms and fireworks, and her family wanted to help. Fast forward a few months, and they had created the Dog Anxiety Vest. The idea is similar to swaddling an infant and provides gentle, comforting pressure around a dog's torso.
While Dosi normally paced, panted, and barked during the thunder, with a Dog Anxiety Vest, she laid down almost instantly and was much calmer for the duration of any storms. Now Dog Anxiety Vests are helping millions of dogs around the world!

Help Your Dog Stay Calm During Thunderstorms
For many dogs, thunderstorms can be a terrifying experience. The ThunderShirt calming wrap applies gentle pressure, similar to swaddling an infant, in order to help your dog feel more safe and calm. ThunderShirt helps to calm in over 80% of cases and can help your anxious dog with panting, scratching, digging, shaking, hiding, and many other symptoms of anxiety or fear.
While fireworks are fun for humans, they can be an anxiety-inducing nightmare for dogs. The ThunderShirt provides comfort through a calming wrap, that helps a dog to feel safe and calm. The ThunderShirt is a must-have around the Fourth of July and New Year.
Say Goodbye to Travel Anxiety
If your dog has travel anxiety, it probably makes for an uncomfortable car ride for both of you. A ThunderShirt can help reduce signs of travel anxiety-like whining, pacing, and drooling, to make it a much more enjoyable ride for everyone.
Help Ease Separation Anxiety
While nothing can replace being with their family, a ThunderShirt helps to keep your dog calm while you are away. The gentle pressure is like a continuous hug, bringing them comfort, and helping them to relax while you are away.
We have a border collie who is kind of a neurotic wreck, she is afraid of everything, plus has been recently diagnosed with epilepsy. Excitement seems to trigger her seizures, so we decided to try a ThunderShirt and see if it would help her stay calm. Well, it works. She's still afraid of everything, but it doesn't seem to affect her as much when she's wearing her shirt. It seems to keep her calmer (see picture). She LOVES it. If you ask her if she wants to put her ThunderShirt on, she'll come running. It doesn't seem to overheat her at all. We'll probably be buying a second one so we can swap them out for washing.
I have no idea if it's helping with her seizures, but it is DEFINITELY helping with her stress levels.
Overall, it's a huge success.
Got this in a medium for my (very petite) Pit Bull/Lab mix with noise sensitivity and separation anxiety. Even though I work in a kennel and am constantly around people's dogs that these jackets work for, I was still incredibly skeptic because my dog has fits so bad she breaks out in hives and claws herself open. But, I've been putting it on her every morning since the day it arrived because it works better than anything else I've tried. She's finally comfortable and not running back and forth crying, hiding behind the couch, or digging at her neck when something upsets her. It works perfectly. Thank you, 5 stars.
I decided to try the new breathable sport version. It's lighter, more giving (moves with her), and much cooler than the original yet still works well. She can actually relax & fall asleep in this one.
I’m a little weirded out by how wel this works. I bought it knowing I’d probably send it back. My schnauzer destroys my house when I leave and I don’t want him to spend his life in a crate. Bought this as a last ditch before having him medicated to keep him from freaking out when we leave. It works. 100%. We’ve had it for about 3-4 weeks and tested it. If we leave and he’s wearing it he won’t touch ANYTHING. He’s very calm and collected. If he’s not wearing it he is antsy and we come home to DVDs destroyed, picture frames tore apart, his toys gutted and piled in the middle of the room, and hats chewed beyond saving. I’d recommend this to anyone with an anxious dog.
I can’t bark (get it? Ha hah) enough about this jacket!!! Simply the best and I’ll tell you why-
We adopted a (neglected) senior dog with bags of separation anxiety. We’re talking pissing ALLLLLLL over the house (even though he has a doggy door and access to the garden) on the bed, when he was locked out of the bedrooms, on the carpet, when we crated him, all over the crate and himself. Ew, I know. He’d be ripping up anything and everything, he even managed to climb onto a table and eat CHOCOLATE cookies (jerk), and he’d be barking like a bloody lunatic- NOTHING could stop him from barking for 10, 20, sometimes 30 mins straight- when we left and came back. We were one bark away from a refund on this dog UNTIL the thunder shirt jacket!!
We got the package, put on the jacket (see the packaging in the background of the picture, yes, we were THAT excited), he instantly mellowed out. We left him at home in his lightweight jacket thinking there’s another puddle of pee for us to clean up... NOPE! He didn’t even bark once!!
Best part? He LOVES it! Every time we pick it up he runs up to it and sits like a good boy all excited.
We now have our life back, he’s not stressing out, everything is great!
