Problem Barking FAQ
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about using Thundershirt for problem barking. If you have any other questions you would like to ask, please contact us.
If Thundershirt alone doesn’t resolve my dog’s symptoms, what training do you recommend?As mentioned above, a Thundershirt alone may be sufficient for your dog. But if not, we definitely recommend adding some simple training exercises with the use of your Thundershirt. See above for details on the training programs.
For what types of problem barking will Thundershirt work?For many dogs, Thundershirt is effective for a wide variety of problem barking causes. Those causes include stress, boredom, over-arousal, fear, reactivity towards other dogs or people, and reactivity towards passing cars.
How tight is “too tight”?Thundershirt should only have comfortable pressure on your dog. How do you judge “comfortable”? You should be able to easily slip you fingers under the Thundershirt. For the next straps, they should only be gently stretched… no pressure is needed around the front chest area; the benefit from Thundershirt comes from the pressure around the torso behind the front legs. When securing the torso straps, you should be stretching the fabric, but it does not require any strenuous force.
Can I wash and dry Thundershirt?Thundershirt is made out of durable, washable fabric. When necessary, Thundershirt may be washed in a regular cycle using regular laundry detergent and cold water. Hang to dry.
How long can my dog wear Thundershirt?Thundershirt is comfortable and safe to wear for extended periods without owner supervision.
Is Thundershirt a good solution if my dog is deaf or blind?In many cases, yes! Deafness or blindness can cause some dogs to become “problem barkers”. They may be barking due to fear, boredom, loneliness or some other issue. But we have seen terrific results with Thundershirt for these cases.
Will my dog eventually no longer need Thundershirt for problem barking?That’s very possible. As your dog learns to react to what stimulates her “problem barking” in a different manner through the use of Thundershirt and any training you undertake, she may no longer need Thundershirt’s help to calm down. Over time, your dog may be able to be a welcome and quieter member of the family all on her own!
