What’s a Thunder Jacket, and How Does It Work?
Thunder jackets wrap around your dog to provide gentle, constant pressure that helps reduce anxiety. A study, published in the Journal of Veterinary Behavior in 2013, reported that an impressive 89 percent of dog owners found that prolonged use of an anxiety wrap reduced anxiety levels in their dogs.
The concept behind this design is meant to mimic a dog’s desire to be close to you when they’re frightened. They seek pressure and warmth to feel secure, which relates to their instinct to be part of a pack, like dogs in the wild.
Shown here is the original ThunderShirt.
