Scientific Support

When ThunderShirt was first launched, very little research existed about dog anxieties and the use of pressure to relieve pet anxiety. Beginning in 2011, ThunderWorks began surveying the general population of families with dogs and cats to get a better understanding of many issues including: how common are dog and cat anxiety and fear issues; what are the different types of issues; what solutions are families trying for these problems; how effective are those solutions? Scientific studies have also been conducted exploring the effectiveness of ThunderShirts on dog anxiety, including by the renowned expert, Dr. Temple Grandin.
