We tried the thunder shirt on our dog and it did very little to his anxiety in the car. We have found that a DAP collar (Pheromone) works wonders. Put it on him an hour before we leave and we do not hear a peep out of him. It basically mellows them out and it very natural as well.

Cinnamon update

Cinnamon is coming along slowly, but surely. Our last campout was 3 weeks ago, so we have had plenty of 'home' training. She still gets quite agitated when I put her in her crate----have tried all the treat coaxing tips---haven't found the 'secret'.

My trailer is parked in my driveway, so several times a day, we would go out there, and just spend some time, watching TV....and then I would put her in her crate and either stay there with her, or would walk out, wait awhile and then walk back in. Still gets agitated.

We have a campout this weekend, so I will be sure to warn my neighbors that I have a 'dog-in-training' and that she likes to cry alot, when she is in her crate.

It's only been 5 weeks since we joined company, it will just take time.

Pic is right after I brought her home from being spayed, definitely an attitude adjustment....3 quiet days.

Dap is on my list of things to try. I am only trying one new 'trick' at a time, that way I will be able to tell what works, and what doesn't. Thanks for your feedback.

By reading everyone's response on the Thunder Shirt to help with 'storms' and 'riding in the car', it looks like it's about even---yeas and nays.

I guess that I should have stated that I wanted to know if anyone used the TS for 'separation anxiety when being put in a crate'. OOOPS

Thanks for the update. Sounds like slow but sure progress. I knew it would work out. She's lucky to have an owner who's willing to go the extra mile.
