Thundershirts to Benefit Puggles & Pitties!

August 24, 2011

We are soooo excited to tell you that our friends at Helping Udders are now carrying THUNDERSHIRTS!!

Thundershirts are excellent tools for dogs with anxiety issues. They were initially marketed for dogs with storm anxiety but have proven to be helpful in a variety of anxiety-inducing situations.

The shirts fit snugly to the dog’s body and mimic the swaddling effect that comforts human babies. If you know a storm is coming, put it on your dog BEFORE the thunder starts in order to help him before his anxiety spirals out of control. If your dog is generally an anxious dog, you can leave the Thundershirt on her around the clock.

Thundershirts have proven to be effective in the following situations:

  • Noise phobias – thunder, fireworks, etc;
  • Separation anxiety;
  • Crate training;
  • Travel/Car anxiety;
  • Nuisance barking;
  • Hyperactivity;
  • Leash pulling.

The Thundershirt website offers a lot of information about the shirts, how to get your dogs used to them, what types of training to do with them depending on what issues are being addressed:

After checking out the Thundershirt website, please please PLEASE go to Helping Udders to purchase your shirt. Puggles & Pitties receives 10 – 50% of the proceeds from any purchases at Helping Udders, so purchasing through them will help  us with the costs of vetting and day-to-day care of the dogs in the rescue!

This is a fantastic tool for your dogs that we wholeheartedly support.

When finalizing your purchase at Helping Udders, please specify “Puggles & Pitties” as your rescue of choice. It’s that simple!

We thank you for your support; your furkid will thank you for the Thundershirt!
