Default Calming the Beag...Days #2 and #3

Yesterday afternoon I took the topper off of her because I was sure she had to poop and pee and she was holding it, sure enough... She also found her barking voice again. I put it back on until night time, she slept fine without it.

Day#3
I put the topper back on this morning -she really doesn't know what to make of it. I'm really surprised since dogs wear various shirts and sweaters but she has never had one on before. She started running back and forth on the patio but wouldn't poop so off it went and she did her biz...lol

It seems the thing does calm her and stops the barking. My husband thinks we should spring for the thunder shirt.

Keep you posted

We got a thundershirt for Molly, it works pretty good. She has weird fear issues and gets really wired if my husband is working in the garage or outside. She barks and growls and runs back and forth with her hair up. Anyway, I put the shirt on and give her a cookie. She will usually still fuss a bit but then will go lay down.

MollysMom,
Thanks for your response, I'm so happpy you have had success with the T
shirt---that cements my decision to get one. What size did you get? I've measured her for one. Does your dog try to turn around and pull it off?

Default Thundershirt

This is Molly in her shirt. She is pretty tiny, weighs 28 pounds. We took her to the store and the sales clerk let us try some on for proper fit. She was a bit afraid of the velcro at first, that's why I give her a treat so she doesn't think she is being punished.

The topper that I bought has the same concept with the velcro around the neck and chest ( she doesn't like the sound either). When I took it off of her this afternoon she high tailed it outside to pee and poop-I feel bad she was holding it while she was wearing the thing.

The other thing she was doing was rubbing against the furniture and walls in an attempt to make it come off. Its only been a couple of days so I imagine she just needs to get used to it.
