Haven't tried either the Thundershirt or the Anxiety Wrap yet but the Wrap supposedly has an anti-static material built in that is said to help quiet the dog along with the gentle pressure it applies. Thundershirt doesn't have an anti-static property, just the pressure. Dr. Nicholas Dodman of Tufts actually mentions in a couple of his books that the Anxiety Wrap was found to be effective, just as Dbqdogtrainer stated. I've heard mixed opinions on the TS from a few who've tried it, and from some retail-worker friends of mine. Will be trying the AW for my Carolina Dog who's not crazy about the Florida thunderstorm season and let you know.

Readers should know that the "studies" referred to in this article that show that the Thundershirt is effective in "over 80%" of dogs is really just customer surveys taken by the Thundershirt Company itself. On the other hand, the Anxiety Wrap, the original and only patented pressure wrap was actually evaluated in a clinical research study at the Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine and found to be effective in 89% of study participants. In my own professional practice I have found the Anxiety Wrap to be consistently effective for a wide range of anxiety disorders.
