A thunder jacket for dogs distributes pressure over the back and sides of your dog’s chest, serving as a calming “hug.” This gentle pressure releases chemicals called endorphins that promote a sense of well-being. That’s why stroking a dog firmly and slowly calms him down while a quick pat on the head revs him up.
Anxiety in dogs can be triggered by many things. Dogs often fear loud noises (e.g. fireworks), household visitors, nail trimming, car travel, vacuum cleaners, or separation from their owners. Fear of thunderstorms is a common cause of anxiety in dogs.
Dogs become anxious when they hear thunder, see lightning or experience rain pounding on the roof. They also detect changes in barometric pressure and the ozone content of the air (a side effect of lightning) that occur during storms. And if they receive a shock from the buildup of static electricity, dogs really become nervous. It’s no wonder so many dogs suffer from “storm phobia.”
These events can make both pets and their owners anxious, nervous and worried. We can help!
