Flush Puppies doodie bags are 100% hyrdo-biodegradable and flushable. Yes, really… flushable. Made from Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) – a water soluble, eco-friendly, “green” alternative to plastic – Flush Puppies are specifically made to dispose of doggie doodie down the toilet. (It’s science, people – not voodoo!) Unlike plastic bags or other “biodegradable” bags, Flush Puppies actually biodegrade in water.
What you do with the bags is completely up to you — trash ‘em or flush ‘em. But we call ‘em Flush Puppies because we think there’s enough crap going on in the environment without adding more to landfills, where your dog’s “business” will likely mummify and may not decompose at all.
Here’s what the United States Environmental Protection Agency has to say about cleaning up pet waste (link):
“Pet waste can be a major source of bacteria and excess nutrients in local waters. . . Flushing pet waste is the best disposal method. Leaving pet waste on the ground increases public health risks by allowing harmful bacteria and nutrients to wash into the storm drain and eventually into local waterbodies.”
Why does Thundershirt work?
Thundershirt’s patent-pending design is a pressure wrap that applies a gentle, constant pressure on a dog’s torso. From real world experience, we know with certainty that Thundershirt DOES WORK. That is why we are able to offer a money-back guarantee. A survey of Thundershirt users shows that over 85% of dogs show significant improvement in at least one anxiety symptom when using Thundershirt.
According to some experts such as Dr. Temple Grandin, pressure has a calming effect on the nervous system. Using pressure to relieve anxiety has been a common practice for years. For example:
- Touch dog trainers use pressure to address a variety of anxieties.
- Veterinarians use pressure to relax cattle when they are administering vaccinations.
- Some autistic people use pressure to relieve their persistent anxiety.
Until now, there just hasn’t been a well-designed, inexpensive pressure wrap commonly used for canine anxiety.
Why doesn’t my vet know about this remedy for anxiety?
Good question! With millions of dogs suffering from anxiety, it amazes us that such an easy to use, inexpensive solution like Thundershirt isn’t more widely known and used. Thundershirt is working to change that; we have launched an outreach campaign for veterinarians. If you would like us to speak with your veterinarian, please contact us.
What training is required for using Thundershirt for anxieties?
For many types of anxiety… none! Just put Thundershirt onto your dog and you will likely see results with the very first usage. However, for some dogs, it may take two to three usages to see results. For some more serious anxiety cases, such as severe separation anxiety, you should consult a good trainer for how to integrate Thundershirt into a training program.

Can I wash and dry Thundershirt? Remove hair from Velcro hooks?
Thundershirt is made out of durable, washable fabric. When necessary, Thundershirt may be washed in a regular cycle using regular laundry detergent and warm water. Hang to dry.
If necessary, to remove dog hair from your Thundershirt’s velcro, we recommend using a standard dog “slicker” brush (Available at most any pet store for as little as $2.99). A couple of strokes and the velcro hooks will be nearly completely hair-free.
How do I put Thundershirt onto my dog?
We designed Thundershirt to be very easy to put on your dog, even if she is already in a state of anxiety. Click here to see detailed illustrations.
What size is right for my dog?
|XXS||9″-13.5″||< 12 lbs.|
|XXL||38″-50″||> 90 lbs.|
Measure “Chest Size” as illustrated by red arrow below
Thundershirt comes in seven different sizes… XXL, XL, L, M, S, XS, and XXS. See the table to find the right size for your dog. Like people, dogs come in many different shapes and sizes, so if your dog has unusual proportions, you may need to go up or down a size versus the “standard” measurements. But the Thundershirt is designed to be very adjustable to accommodate different dog shapes and still be easy to put on.
Is overheating a concern when using a Thundershirt?
Except in extreme conditions (e.g. 90 degrees Fahrenheit in the sun), overheating is not typically a concern when using a Thundershirt. Dogs cool themselves primarily through their mouths and paws, and a Thundershirt is constructed of a thin, breathable fabric. The state of Florida is one of our biggest markets. But if you feel that overheating might be a problem for your particular circumstance, please monitor your dog for any signs of overheating such as heavy panting or tongue hanging out of the mouth. Remove the Thundershirt if you see any signs of overheating.
