Success with Thundershirt?
I know some people think the Thundershirt is a gimmick, but I got one just to try it out. I got it mainly to help Louis with his nervous drooling whenever he is in a car (he drools in other situations too). If he's sitting in my lap while I'm in the passenger seat, he is totally fine. If I'm driving and he's sitting next to me, he drools. If I step away from the car whether he's in there by himself (my other dog is with him though) or with my husband, he will drool a lake.
With the thundershirt, he drools, but not as much! Sometimes not at all. It also helped him with a thunderstorm on Sunday night. When it thunders (or fireworks), he will drool and shake. He still shook, but it seemed to get him to calm down faster. The only annoying thing is his hair is so long and the shirt needs to fit really snug - the velcro catches his hair.
