We use the Thundershirt on our pooches for thunderstorms and fireworks.
They really do help.

May have to look into that Thundershirt. Our dog just turned 5 yrs. and is now getting scared
during a storm. Might get one for my wife too! :D

What works better is conditioning your pooch when there young. Take a couple old pots and rap them together when you feed them. Does not take long before the noise
is normal to them. None of my Labrador's were ever gun shy or edgy. It works beautiful. Straight Jacket now that's funny. ps

Certain breeds need a lot of exercise. For example keeping a Border Collie cooped up in an apartment would not be a good idea. My Black Lab becomes hyperactive if he doesn't get his daily long walk which is OK with me since I need the exercise too. :)

We tried a Thundershirt on our dog, didn't help much at all.

Maybe he didn't like the color.

My dog doesn't seem to be bothered by thunderstorms but the fireworks on the Fourth of July drive him into trembling almost catatonic state.

I had a Llewellin setter that, despite being perfectly gun broke and wasn't bothered much at all by sudden noises, would know/ feel thunder storms way before anyone else in the house was aware, and she was terrified of them, hiding in the most absurd places and shaking the whole time. It was really the only thing that set her off. She never did become accustomed to them, and we decided better to just let her deal with them.

I remember one time when I had a dog that looked like a little golden retriever. A neighbor about shouting distance away was doing some blasting. I happened to have my refrigerator door open when the blast went off. My dog which was behind me at the time tried to jump into the refrigerator. That was the only thing that really scared him.

Do those work on the owners as well?

I think you can buy big straight jackets for them and I'm sure the baseball bats would work.
