We started her with it the way they recommended. We folded it up and put some treats on it. Then, when she was calm, I put it on. But I am constantly "dressing her up" in t-shirts and stuff and she is so patient. Then, the first time we had thunder, I put it on and she seemed to really enjoy it. Now, it is just the norm to put it on when something bothers her.
But I agree with Pac, it will work with some and not others. We just got lucky.
