Body Wraps (Shown in picture on left)
The body wrap gives animals a sense of connection and gives the animal feedback about tension and space. These simple wraps, that are basically bandages help many dogs with shyness, reactivity, fear of thunder / fireworks, strangers, car sickness, arthritis, stress. They help balance the body, build confidence, main focus and bring awareness to the dogs body. They are also helpful when preparing to introduce a body harness.

Thundershirt (Shown in picture on left)
They are very effective for thunder storms and noise sensitivity; and help to reduce anxiety and improve confidence. Because Thundershirts look like a coat many people feel better about taking their dogs out in public. Some dogs who have trouble accepting a wrap have been very accepting of the Thundershirt.
