It’s estimated that 45% of the UK’s dogs are likely to show fearful behaviour when they hear fireworks*. That means more than 3 million dogs display behaviour such as chewing their feet, barking with fear, hiding or trying to ‘dig’ a way out. The firework season can start as early as the beginning of October and runs right through to New Year.
Equafleece’s Dog T-shirts have been hailed as revolutionary by canine therapists and vets who have described them as a ‘protective portable hug’. They are even recommended by Internationally renowned behaviour specialist Sarah Fisher in her book Unlock Your Dog’s Potential.
The principle behind them is simple –when a dog is frightened he holds his breath. The comforting contact of a T-shirt makes him feel supported, more able to relax and therefore more able to breathe and cope with fears. There is no need to medicate your dog with sedatives or other drugs, and the T shirt is a cost effective option too!
Don’t let a firework phobia ruin your dog’s winter.
“I could not believe how incredible effective the T-shirt was in calming my very anxious greyhound, and how quickly. She changed from being a shaking drooling wreck into a snoozing relaxed dog in a matter of minutes the first time I used the Equafleece T-shirt. It continued to work brilliantly during fireworks and thunderstorms for the rest of her life.” Rebecca Reeves,Equafleece customer.
Equafleece Dog T-shirts are made from 100% breathable cotton stretch fabric. They were originally designed to combat contact allergens, photosensitivity and to keep dressings in place but owners were soon reporting that their dogs were much calmer and less anxious while wearing their T-shirts.
Don’t let a firework phobia ruin your dog’s winter. Pop an Equafleece T-shirt on him and watch his fears fizzle out.
