Thundershirt Report #2

I sure am a handsome devil aren’t I?

As you can see, I’m wearing my Thundershirt. (Truth be told, I think I might like this thing.) See, I wore it again before the big ‘ole fireworks cannon last week.

When the peep came over to me with it in Her hand, to put it on me, I stood up all pretty as you please and wagged my tail.

Of course, She was like, “Look honey! I think Our boy likes this thing!” as He watched in disbelief.

NO DUH SHERLOCK.  (Really mom peep? You think I wag my tail for just anything?)

I was like, “Why yes, peepster, I do like it. Just a tad.”

What You Learned Today:

  • I’m hoping this Thundershirt will help me calm down when loud noises disturb my life. And my life is disturbed by stuff like fireworks, thunder and car backfires. A lot.
  • When the cannon went off last Thursday, of course I reacted to it, but I just went under one of the chairs on Our front stoop and stayed there. Like I always do. (To me, sitting under a chair is kind of like sitting in a crate. All nice and snug.) I didn’t freak out or anything.
  • Cool, huh?
  • Hey, I must tell you that I don’t get a kickback or free stuff at all from the Thundershirt folks. We bought it fair and square. Full price and everything.
  • See, I consider it my Scottie duty to try stuff and let you know what I think. (You know I have an opinion about everything. It’s the terrier way.)
  • It’s easier if We just buy the stuff and try it. That way, We’re not obligated to like anything. No conflict of interest at The Scottie Chronicles. No sir.
  • I think that’s called “transparency”.

  1. Oh So Glad it’s starting to work, you handsome guy, with the gray hair showing, you and Bites are beginning to look alike, so beb-n-nare. Sorry we have not been commenting much, Oh so busy with the Olympic Zoomie Running Events, have a great day with you new outfit!

  2. YAY!! Piper does the same thing!! He even knows where we keep the shirt and as soon as Mom goes to get it, he’s right at her feet waiting to get it on.

    It’s grooming day for us and Kenzie HATES grooming. He whimpers 20 miles away from the groomers, don’t ask why but be both know where we’re going. He gets ½ a tranquilizer but it doesn’t help. Now he wants a Thundershirt for grooming. I think he wants it so the groomer can’t reach his fur. Maybe Kenzie is smarter than anyone thought but he certainly needs to terrier-up on grooming days.

  4. There is a radio disc jockey here that tried it for his dog. He swears by it. I cannot wait to see if you really like it and it helps your phobia. If so we might be in the market for one. No pressure though I want to know if it really works!

    I’ve had good success with the Thundershirt for both my resident and foster dogs. Been using them for almost a year now and I’d have to say that it works on about 70% of the dogs who have worn them. The trick, from what I’ve seen, is to make sure you have a great fit. They really are pretty awesome, and look good on them too! Wishing you and Stuart lots of luck with it!

  6. Angus says:

    What size did you get? Sometimes Scottie bodies are difficult to fit.

  7. I’m glad it’s working for you! You sure look happy wearing it.

  8. It must be working! We’re so happy to hear this, Stuart!

    Love ya lots,
    Mitch and Molly

    The Thundershirt is like getting a great big hug all the time. Hugs are a good thing.
    Lee is glad she has never had an animal that is afraid of storms.

    • Hey, I need to shout out to you Sweet William the Scot – I can’t bark at you over at your place, but I wanted you to know I barked, “Hi!”.

      Hugs ARE good things. I got a few a little while ago. Here’s one for you and Lee! Here you go….

      Roo Hug, Stuart

      • Lee says:

    Your handsome face gave us huge smiles this morning, Stuart. We’re glad you like your shirt and hope it works…..

    I’m glad its helping. She also wondered about the heat, it was 106 or so here today. Of course, its a dry heat…like turning the oven on to broil, then putting head inside with the blow dryer on!!

  14. Noodledog says:

    My typist sometimes really lacks skill, she meant its darn HOT here, and it might actually be cooler in the oven with the broiler and the blow dryer both running….

    You look very happy in your thunder shirt!
    I’m glad it’s helping you!

    I’m happy to hear your review! Jacque does not like fireworks and I’ve been considering the Thundershirt or some of that Rescue Remedy stuff. I’ve also read that sometimes even just a close fitting t shirt would work.

  17. christina says:

    Oh! And what an adorable picture of you! You sure are a handome fella!!

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
