A Thundershirt

Jack the Goldendoodle

I want a thundershirt.

Also known as a calming vest. Also known as an anxiety shirt.

My mom saw this one and told me I might be getting one.

I guess I do get a little wild and crazy when there’s funny business outside.

I do what my family calls my ‘heavy breathing’ when I’m stressed.

Sometimes I’m afraid to go new places so I tip-toe and peek around the corners with deep concern in my eyes…

Sometimes when friends come over to visit, I lose my self control and the next thing I know I’m causing all sorts of commotion.

And sometimes I’m really brave. And sometimes I’m just happy and smiling and as calm as a graceful swan. Are swans graceful?

I haven’t seen a swan. But I think seeing one would be a scary experience.

I think I would look handsome in a thunder shirt sometimes, do you think?


  1. Oh Jack,I think you are just a bit high strung.A thunder shirt might make you feel a bit more sure of yourself.I think you are enjoying your life and want everyone to know that.I also know how”funny business”can be hard on your people,but they know ya just can’t help it…:)

  2. We own a 9 yr old Goldendoodle & a Westie/Scottie mix. Our Goldendoodle is unaffected by thunderstorms & fireworks. Our Westie/Scottie mix has had a thundershirt for 3 years. The best $40 I gave ever spent. Has worked splendidly from the first time he wore it. The calming effect is amazing. I highly endorse this product. :)

  3. Hi Jack! I definitely think you should get a Thundershirt! My little girl (Eisley) wears hers during thunderstorms and fireworks and it helps her tremendously. Hope you have good results as well!

  4. Hi! Just a heads up that your latest post isn’t showing up on your website. It came up on my Bloglovin’ feed, but when I went to your website later to show it to my daughter (she LOVES your posts, Jack!), it wasn’t posted. It might just be a computer glitch on our end, but we thought we’d let you know.

    Love all your posts, Jack! You remind us our of goldendoodle, who also likes to bark incessantly at all the “funny business” outside!
