Using Pressure to Treat Dog Anxiety During Car Travel
What Is Car Travel Anxiety?
While many dogs enjoy car rides, for some others, a car ride can become a trip of
anxiety or over-excitement. According to our survey
of over 2,000 dog owners across
the United States, over 5% of dogs suffer from issues during travel. These issues
can create real problems for taking your dog to the veterinarian, the groomer, or
anywhere involving a car trip. Many dogs are so fearful of traveling, that even
getting them in the car can be a struggle. Other forms of travel are also difficult
for many dogs. Air travel in particular can be a very traumatic event that often
require heavy sedation.
Symptoms of Dog Travel Anxiety
Car travel anxiety can present itself in many ways such as carsickness, barking,
whining, pacing, scratching and restlessness. Many dogs become dangers to themselves
and others by jumping on the driver or otherwise distracting concentration from
the road. Like other forms of dog anxiety, these symptoms can often result in injury
to your dog, damage to your property, and expensive cleaning and repairs. These
negative travel experiences can also compound the fear a dog already feels toward
vet visits and groomer visits.
Stories From Dogs With Travel Anxiety
“Hi, My name is Buddy. I’m a former medical research beagle who gets so car
sick that the only thing that works for my nausea is Cerenia (prescription). Every
time we go to our cabin in the mountains, I have to take Cerenia in order to survive
the trip. Well, here’s good news for all of us who struggle with doggy motion sickness.
I now have a ThunderShirt. I thought it was just some crazy shirt I had to wear
to look cute. Well, let me tell you, I love it. Now I can travel drug free. I feel
much better about going in the car, where I hunker down and sleep most of the way.
ThunderShirt works for me. No vomiting, no restlessness, no pooping, no anxiety.

doggies are anxious about pretty much everything. Thanks, ThunderShirt, we appreciate
