Yuta is one of the larger (or largest!) Labrador that we have ever let check in... no no, we don't have a weight/size limit :)

He's quite the gentle giant - and he usually has a sad expression on his face. Even his mum said that he was weird and not like a happy springy Lab like most others.

He did spend the first couple of days being very moody and we could hear him sigh alot. But if you take the effort to engage him in play - wow, what a change we saw! He now howls and barks whenever he sees people coming into the house. Like a rousing welcome :D

He's truly a special boy and we are so happy that he let us into his (giant) world :D

Mambo and The Meow Meow

Meow Meow came to stay with us.... but wasn't overly impressed with any human contact. BUT when it comes to Mambo (that's MIBO's new kitten by the way), she quite friendly! And Mambo is such a tease... he'll stretch his paws into Meow Meow's cage to try and touch her and spins off when she approaches.

What fun! :D

What size is right for my dog?
Thundershirt comes in seven different sizes. See the table above to find the right size for your dog. Like people, dogs come in many different shapes and sizes, so if your dog has unusual proportions, you may need to go up or down a size versus the "standard" measurements. But the Thundershirt is designed to beveryadjustable to accomodate different dog shapes and still be easy to put on.

Can i wash and dry Thundershirt?
Thundershirt is made of durable, washable fabric. When necessary, Thundershirt may be washed in a regular cycle using regular laundry detergent and warm water. Hang to dry.

Is overheating a concern when using a Thundershirt?
Except in extreme conditions (over 32 degrees Celsius in the sun), overheating is not typically a concern when using a Thundershirt. Dogs cool themselves primarily through their mouths and paws, and a Thundershirt is constructed of a thin, breathable fabric. The state of Florida is one of Thundershirt's biggest markets. But if you feel that overheating might be a problem for your particular circumstance, please monitor your dog for any signs of overheating such as heavy panting or tongue hanging out of the mouth. Remove the Thundershirt if you see any signs of overheating.

Thundershirt (TM) - The Best Solution for Dog Anxiety

How it Works
With its patent pending design, Thundershirt's gentle, constant pressure has a dramatic effect for most dogs if they are anxious, fearful or over-excited. From real world experience, we know with certainty that Thundershirt DOES WORK. Based on surveys completed by over 1,000 Thundershirt users, over 85% of dogs show significant improvement in anxiety symptoms when using Thundershirt.

As for WHY Thundershirt's gentle pressure works to calm a dog, experts such as Dr. Temple Grandin believe that pressure has a calming effect on the vervous system. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years. For example:

  • TTouch dog trainers use pressure to address a wide variety of anxieties
  • Veterinarians use pressure to relax cattle when they are administering vaccinations
  • People with autism use pressure to relieve their persistent anxiety
  • Children with certain behavioural problems use pressure shirts and weighted vests to relax and focus
  • Parents use swaddling to calm an inconsolable newborn infant
Until now, there just hasn't been a well-designed, inexpensive pressure wrap commonly used for dog anxiety. Thundershirt is changing that! Thousands of veterinarians and dog trainers now recommend Thundershirts for their anxiety cases.

How to Use Thundershirt
Thundershirt is an excellent treatment for most types of dog anxiety and fear issues. For many anxieties, we recommend just putting on a Thundershirt and observing the results (No training!). You very well may see significant improvement for noise, crate, travel, barking and others with absolutely no training. For more complicated anxiety cases, we recommend using Thundershirt as part of a behaviour modification program.

One thing is for certain, for a very large percentage of dogs, Thundershirt's gentle, constant pressure has a terrific calming effect. This has obvious benefits for most types of anxiety. But Thundershirt is also a very useful tool for managing excitability or hyperactivity with strangers, on the leash, or in a training environment. Thundershirt's calming effect helps a dog to focus (or refocus) her energies in a more constructive direction, allowing training to be more effective.

... the highest of all places! Can you tell she's quite smart too? :P

(In collaboration with Dog Walkies)
But after a few days, she warmed up and we found that she has a cheeky streak too! She would got to the top of the stairs and tease the cats that were behind the door.

Yes, we're watching you!
