A couple My Lot friends explained to me, that dogs don't have to suffer from anxiety attacks. They said there's a vest called a 'Thunder Shirt' that wraps around their body, to make them feel secure and calm. I spoke with Jay, my husband, about this and he agreed that I need to order one for my dog, Kobe. Because of the first traumatic months of his life, my dog is basically afraid of everything that moves! Yesterday, he felt threatened by a 'baby squirrel', walking next to our backyard fence. Kobe scared the daylights out of the poor thing! Anyway, I'm gonna order a 'Thunder Shirt' for my dog, to lessen his insecurity and fear. Hopefully, our daily walk will be more enjoyable, for both of us Photo:NOT MINE, Borrowed from Pixabay It sure does look like Kobe, when he was younger!

Yes, it's terrible to live in fear, all the time:( What makes me smile, my son Chad looks like 'Grizzly Adams' from the television series, with 'Ben' the bear. He looks scary, to someone who doesn't know him. Yet, when Chad approached the backyard fence, Kobe got tears in his eyes and went right to him for affection! lol

Good luck with the thunder shirt. I wish Leah wasn't upset when I put things on here back. She needs a thunder shirt. Now when hubby fries something like an egg and the fat pops, Leah heads into the bedroom, getting as far away from that scary noise as possible. Don't slam the dryer door over here, either.

He is very much like our dog and I have not heard of that kind of thing before. Sure hope it works for him. Ours was very badly treated by another one that first took him to his house. When we took him home his four legs trembled a lot at first till we managed to calm him down and I wish I had had something like that to help him out.
It seems that Kobe would need a vest like that to make friends with Luna. Luna has a diva complex and she only minds Leticia. I thought that she would have problems when we had a thunder and wind storm but she did not mind. She doesn´t like earthquakes though. I can understand that.
