Has anyone tried one of these?

I have ordered one last night, I am hoping it might help with Indie's nervousness around traffic.

there is a satisfaction guarantee with them so i figuired if it doesn't work i'll just send it back.

I was looking at them the other night and was going to ask the very same question :-)

I know Megan used one on her dog but I am not sure how successful it was.

I was looking at them for Reubs. He is doing well on the serene um but I was looking at alternatives if he struggles to cope once the fireworks start as they are now on sale locally and they go on forever!

Just to say - saw these in Pets at Home today £35.00 - never seen them there before.

Good chance to have a close look at them for anyone considering them.

Really interested to hear what you really think of them - considering getting one for Bailey for fireworks time. He suffers so badly.

Let me know how you go with this - I have been thinking for a long time about getting Deano one. Would be great if they do work and could really help if it does!

That was my concern...Obviously I don't mind spending the money, but I don't want to spend that amount of money on a product that won't work.

Received this today and have to say I have only used it once and it did make a BIG difference!

It was raining quite heavy here so I put the thundershirt on and her coat on top of it and off we went.

Its not an instant fix but she's definetly not as fearful, and I soon had her taking treats and keeping walking when cars were passing which she's never done before.

Previously shes been too concerned about the cars to take food.

I'm very pleased with it!
The satisfaction guarantee is 45 days so for any of you who are still unsure you could give it a try x

Great news that you have seen some improvement already. I was reading on line last night that you can try and get the same effect with bandages but there is a knack to it - which knowing me would be completely wrong lol
