The time had come to leave Brillo at home alone! I put his ThunderShirt on about 30 minutes before I was due to leave the house so he doesn’t associate it with me leaving him.
He was his normal self….didn’t mind at all that I had dressed him up again!
Before I left him I gave him a treat which of course he loved & at that point he couldn’t care less where I had gone.
I waited outside the house to see if he made any noise. Nothing…no sound for a few minutes but then he started howling. Very disappointed but I am not giving up yet.
Apparently ThunderShirts work with the constant pressure they give around the torso – it has a calming effect on the nervous system. Brillo really does look like a Brillo pad (very wiry) at the moment so I am wondering/hoping that once he gets a hair cut that will help?
I will also keep trying it out. It may take a few goes for it to work for him……
