A to Z Blogging Challenge - Letter OWe all know that April Showers Bring May Flowers, right? Apparently April is not only full of showers, but also hail, sleet, and ice.

Thanks Mother Nature.

Fortunately for Luna, I was introduced to the ThunderCoat while at the Global Pet Expo.

ThunderCoat is an adorable trench coat for dogs that is made by ThunderWorks, the maker of ThunderShirt. If you aren’t familiar with ThunderShirt, it is a solution for anxiety in dogs (and cats) that creates a calming effect with gentle and constant pressure.

The ThunderShirt was one of the first investments I made after adopting Luna. I’ve used it multiple situations with success, but was most impressed with how it helped in situations with a lot of people and other dogs.

The ThunderCoat combines a ThunderShirt and the cute doggy trenchcoat for a fashionable, but dry experience when it rains.

Luna was happy to have her ThunderCoat when the weather suddenly decided to pour and then hail on Tuesday. In combination with her Pawz, she stayed pretty dry. The multiple layers of the ThunderShirt and coat helped her stay warm too.

The jacket is just as easy to put on as a regular ThunderShirt. It does take a little longer than her other raincoat, but it covers more so it keeps more of Luna dry and warm.

I love that the jacket has a detachable hood. You can put it up part way, all the way, roll it down, or take it completely off. Luna doesn’t tend to keep the hood on her head, so I can remove it or roll it up so it doesn’t just flop around. The only downside I found was that because the hood isn’t completely attached some wetness can sneak in around the neck, but it wasn’t any worse than her other jacket or a jacket without the hood.

You can pick up the ThunderCoat from ThunderWorks online store for $69.95. It is a bit of an investment, but it does include the ThunderShirt, which costs $39.95. It is a great deal if you have not purchased a ThunderShirt yet or were thinking about getting an extra.

Have you ever used a ThunderShirt?
