Thundershirt Company recently attended a terrific dog trainers conference in Oakland, California in October. The APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers) is the leading trainers group in the world with thousands of members. And with their strong emphasis on positive training techniques, Thundershirt's gentle approach to treating anxiety is a perfect fit. Over 250 trainers are now using Thundershirts with their clients and the feedback has been terrific.
A presentation at the conference by Jenn Merritt, CPDT, focused on how Thundershirt is a terrific tool in the training environment. Thundershirt's calming effects help dogs to focus and more quickly learn new DESIRED behaviors.
