Thanks. Dude is doing great. We still have things we need to work through and some things just can't be changed but finally I can see the progress.
Thunder-shirt helps greatly, but its so hot I haven't had him wear it for a couple of weeks.
He does ok with the car as long as air conditioning vents are on him. Luckily my car has back vents. He still can not ride in crate in car without getting sick.

|Magwart||CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Getting a very shy dog out to a place like Petsmart and successfully through class is a huge achievement. It is monumental progress for dogs like this. Huge, huge kudos to you for getting him this far.|

I'm also glad your seeing positive results, what works for one may not work for another.
I had an aussie who was thunder phobic, got the t shirt, it certainly didn't cure her, but seemed to calm her some, as well as melatonin..

It was really interesting that after his neuter surgery, he was up acting like an almost normal pup. Sitting up in the car looking out the window instead of being hunkered down... and the same way at home with hubby. It was like the drugs from the surgery gave him confidence. But by the next morning it had worn off and he was fearful again.
That was when I finally decided to give the Thundershirt a try. Many had mentioned it couldn't hurt so I decided to give it a shot. I really thought there was no way it could work. But it is.
Its not a instant cure but after the first few hours we could already see a difference. My husband is even more amazed than I am if that is possible. It is giving pup enough confidence that the other things we had been doing are finally starting to get through. Instead of one step forward and 10 back it has been little steps forward each day and as long as hubby is seeing progress he is happy. So yea!

Since we have had this pup Super High Value treats only come from my husband. We have had fearful dogs before just never one that was so fearful none of the usual methods worked. The Thundershirt is helping so that the other methods are starting to work. Hubby has been able to play tug and feed treats.
BTW thank you for the link!
