The consistent bangs and bright, flashing lights of fireworks are stressful for many dogs.
ThunderShirt provides gentle, calming pressure around your dog’s torso, much like swaddling a baby.
This is proven to help soothe their anxiety when fireworks are happening.

ThunderShirt Calming Wrap
Calming vest for your dog that works with a gentle pressure method, like swaddling a baby, proven to help reduce anxiety in your dog.
- Stress-related barking
- Loud noises such as thunderstorms, fireworks and outdoor noises (e.g. traffic)
- Dogs staying home alone
Tested and approved by dogs and their parents
The effect of gentle pressure has been demonstrated in dogs diagnosed with an anxiety issue*. Dogs wearing ThunderShirt were more relaxed than those without ThunderShirt when left alone for 15 minutes in a new environment - their heart rate went up less and they showed less stress-related behaviours. This showed that the use of a pressure wrap can promote relaxation for dogs when facing challenging situations.
In a survey of dog parents**, 87% reported an improvement in their dog's reaction to loud noises, whilst 77% reported their dog had coped better when wearing ThunderShirt during time home alone.
