Okay so i recently bought a Thundershirt for Koda!
When we took him to the pet shop to try it on, he was really frightened.... he was shaking and extremely jumpy!
Literally the second the Thundershirt was put on him, he stoped shaking and was really calm and happy!
I have still had lots of trouble brushing out Koda's tail... even with two people (me brushing and someone else comforting him and giving him treats) it was difficult! I have been getting quite desperate cause it was starting to get matted... i would just be devistated if i had to shave it!
Anyway, so today i decided to try brushing him while he was wearing his thundershirt! IT WORKED!!!!!
I am so thrilled, he only tried to turn around a couple of times, i actually managed to brush it out properly!
I am going to keep doing this every day until it is completely knot free!
The difference this Shirt makes is incredable, today Koda went from being very anxious and unable to keep calm and focused on the other person with treats... to literally just sitting there completely chilled out while i am brushing his tail (there were a few times where i was pulling quite hard... and he didnt even react!)
Would definately recomend the thundershirt for anyone who has a dog with anxiety issues!
(apparently it works for reavtivness towards people/dogs as well... i'll have to give that a go when i get the chance)
