Wondering if anyone had good success with Thundershirts? I know a lot of people help it to calm their dogs during storms, car trips, etc.

While my pit-mix doesn't really have anxiety, he does get VERY excited when we have company over (granted we don't have guests over very often so makes it hard to work on). I have tried giving him long lasting chews, praising anytime he shows calm behavior, doing mat work, only treating appropriate greetings, etc but after a short while, he's trying to jump on guests for attention, gets aroused easily, pawing, etc.

So seen the thundershirt work as a calming effect and thought along with training might aid in getting him to settle better around people. Anyone had success using it for this or a similar purpose?
