Jezzy and the Thundershirt – II

The reviews are in:  Two paws up for the Thundershirt!!.

Jezzy’s been sporting her new Thundershirt for at least part of each day for the last couple of weeks.  Between several popup thunderstorms, and the incessant neighborhood fireworks, she’s really given it a trial by fire.  I’m not saying that she was hanging out, making cheerful conversation with us last night during the fireworks, but she was NOT under the bed, quivering and quaking.

Jezzy finds a safe spot behind the lamp and end table.

We found that she still wants to be under something – but the frantic running from spot to spot was absent, and the pathetic shivering never materialized.

Maybe not the world's happiest pup, but tolerating the commotion.

Relief.  Success.

  1. I was thinking of you and Jezzy last night at the fireworks. Told my daughters about the ‘Thundershirt’. Glad to hear that it helped!

  2. That’s wonderful! We once had a dog that only wanted to be sitting on our chests, panting and shaking, before and during thunderstorms. Quite the barometer. If she was outside, she clawed her way in and if inside, the reverse. A lot of sleepless nights and property damage. We can’t imagine what our T@DA would have looked like after one of her attacks! I will forward your blog to my brother who is a vet in Ohio.
