|Well, after 3 afternoons of Thunderstorms in a row the Thundershirt arrived yesterday & we thought we were going to get another storm but it petered out before ever getting to us.
However, the site & everyone who has used one says to get the dog used to the Tshirt BEFORE the need arises. So, yesterday we spent getting her used to it. Fed her "cookies" off it. Rubbed our scents all over it, layed her toys & bones on it so when she gets a toy she has to encounter the Tshirt & I "loved" the Tshirt. Put it on her 3 or 4 times for 5 -10 minutes each. At first she was quite put out with me for putting it on her & hunched her back when walking in a 1/2 sideways crab walk LOL!!!!! She refused to look at me & clearly displayed her disdain. And she shook herself a LOT. She's getting much more accepting of it today. She actually seems to be accepting it & sits quietly for me to put it on her & isn't upset by it at all. Will acclimate her a few more times today. I think we may "get the big one" this afternoon/evening.
Will keep posting on the outcome.
