My dog Happy suffers from separation anxiety and I’ve tried different things to help him cope. The next thing on my list to try was a Thundershirt but I haven’t done that yet because I’m not sure how he’ll feel about wearing something. A SnugglePuppie might be a better fit for a dog that doesn’t like attire but does like to snuggle.
A SnugglePuppie by Snuggle Pet Products is a soft stuffed animal that features a pulsing heartbeat and stays warm for up to three hours with warmer packs. They can help ease separation anxiety, calm pets in new or stressful surroundings and ease puppies into sleeping through the night. Now, I personally have two dogs which means if Happy wants to snuggle while I’m gone he can always do so with his brother Joey. Still though, I think these are pretty cool. They come in different colors and species (hello, SnuggleKitties). Pricewise, they’re about the same investment as a Thundershirt retailing for $39.95. They’re also on sale on Fab.com right now for $35.
