So I am debating whether to get a thundershirt or a dog backpack for my 10 month old gsd Dre. He weighed in at 70 lbs about 2 months ago at his last visit to the vet and I'm sure he's gained weight since then. He does tend to have issues with lunging and barking on his leash with other dogs (which I have been working with him on). But I guess my question is..a thundershirt is suppose to have calming effects? Would a doggy backpack have the same effects since you can add weight to it? Because I feel I would get more use out of the backpack since I will be able to put things like his water dish and other stuff when we go hiking and what not. So as of right now I'm leaning towards the backpack. Any suggestions? I was reading in a previous thing about "ruff wear and heard good reviews. If he feels like he had a job to do it will help curb the lunging? Is this true or would a thundershirt suit him better?
