How are you finding the shirt Claire? Reuben had a pretty bad morning at Flyball due to fireworks at stupid o clock and one of the women there recommended it and said it had worked wonders with her dog

It really helped with the traffic shyness, and I also put it on her last night and tonight as she wasn't sure about the fireworks. And she was fine x

I am also thinking of getting one of these, I saw them at pah yesterday. I'm sure that megan has separation anxiety and have heard that they are good for this?? Every time I leave her (not more than an hour at the moment) I come home and something has been totally destroyed, she always manages to find something to destroy!!!!! It seems to be getting worse. Am going to get a crate now but just wondered if this thundershirt would help also.

Also just wondered if anyone had any tips for excessive moulting??? I know dogs moult but this is really bad, I do brush her every day but it doesnt seem to make any difference. There seems to be a constant layer of hair on her.

dell's shedding his summer coat for his winter one at the minute
plus central heating has gone on
i was thinking the sticky roller things but he wont let me poke
so hang on in there Diane it should soon get less hairy or furry
crate is a brilliant idea it makes them secure as its there own space x

Sometimes an oil added to their food like Salmon oil helps with excessive shedding spinner smile

Or you could try Yumega Oil, I have done before and it helped, you can get it fairly cheaply on Amazon.

I use salmon oil too in their food, have never really had a problem with the boys shedding.

The thundershirt might be a good idea for her as It should help her to feel secure. There is a 45day money back guarantee so its definetly worth a try and if you don't find that it helps you can get a refund.

The crate is also a good idea, especially if she's continuing to cause damage to your house, try your local gumtree etc there's always people getting rid of crates you might get a bargain x

Ohhhh I would be interested, with georgie being super hyper and sensitive too, I can sit next to her or she sits next to me and cuddles up and if I go to rub her ear or stroke her head ot leg basically anywhere she switches or jumps she is very sensitive and wondered if this would help?

Ive picked one up, and it is £5 off, will try it on her tonight apparently they do have to be quite snug, so have got her a medium one. She has got worse with jumping up and barking which hasnt helped with that thing next door kicking off every five minutes and now I have actually bagged a boyfriend she is constantly moving about, messing about and sitting between us and never leaving our sides, so hope this will calm her down a bit

Oh my goodness this dog is so calm. She isn't darting about, running up and down stairs and just stopped jumping up. I've just put my hand on her back and whenever flinched

I'm amazed

Babypink can you please post pictures so I can check I've got it on correctly?
Here's Ruby and Elsdon with one on:


It worked wonders with Elsdon when I took him out for a walk tonight with it on, no lunging at people wanting to make friends and just walked past most people no matter who they were. I'm so pleased with it.
Ruby's picture as usual is rubbish but you get the gist.

I'm amazed Claire at how relaxed Elsdon was with people, he normally wants to jump up but didn't bother at all tonight and wanted to sniff more. Love it.
