Will this be good with separation anxiety in my chihuahua?
Answer by ChewySep 06, 2020
This calming coat provides anxiety relief from thunderstorms, traveling, crating, fireworks, loud noises, hyperactivity, vet visits, and separation.

Does the vest helps calm a dog if there's a thunder.
Answer by ChewyNov 03, 2017
The Calming Coat applies gentle, constant pressure to help him feel safe and reduce anxiety during high-stress situations like traveling, vet visits, thunderstorms, loud noises, meeting new people or introducing new pets to the household.

We live in a hot climate zone. Is it harmful for dog to wear in 90 degree weather?
Answer by ChewyJan 19, 2019
While this coat is made of cotton, it will retain some body heat so it would be very important to monitor your pet and ensure they do not overheat.

How do i put the coat on my dog
Answer by ChewyFeb 06, 2018
Place the Calming Coat on your dog's back. Fit the Long Chest Wrap around the front of your dog and secure to velcro on Short Chest Wrap. Be sure not to secure too tightly, to prevent limiting your dog's movement. Then wrap the Long Body Wrap under the torso of your dog through the Body Slit. Continue the Long Body Wrap around the back of your dog. Wrap Short Body Wrap under the torso of your dog and secure to velcro straps on opposite side of Long Body Wrap. Adjust as needed for proper snug fit.

Calms my nervous dog

My older dog has been more nervous every time there is a thunderstorm and with every vet visit. I really did not expect the Anxiety Vest to work on an older dog, but it did! She immediately calmed down when I first put the vest on. After the thunder was over, I was going to take the vest off, and she gave me a no-way look. She loves it. She did great at the vet’s, too.

Great except for the velcro

I think this Vest is a great idea. The only suggestion I have is to use smaller velcro for the smaller dogs. The velcro for the medium vest is strong enough to keep an angry pit bull under control! My little, old poodle is afraid of everything now and when I pull the velcro apart, she is terrified.

Sadly, it is too small

My 95 lb GS rescue is very anxious. He was abused in his past life and now lives in terror of most things. Even his daily walk can be a source of terror if he encounters too many new people or objects. The vest seemed like it might help, and I think it would have, had it fit. But it is a good 10 inches too small! If you have a GS, then your dog must be on the small side and very slender to be able to wear this vest. My boy is not overweight, and very fit. But he is a big GS, not a petite one!

Great for scratching dogs

We live in the desert during the winter and it’s bad for allergies. Our Neva scratches all the time. We’ve tried all sorts of things but found that this vest keeps her calm and she rarely scratches. It works!

Vest Kind of works

I ordered medium size for my mid-sized 32-pound labradoodle and it was a very tight fit. He wore it new year's eve throughout lots of fire works and he still cowered and cried although not as much as he does without the vest.

Complicated

I bought this for my dog who passed away. Finally found someone who could use. She finds it nearly impossible to figure out how to put it on her dog. Thus unable to use.

Love the results. I only shop at Chewy they have the best items and if you need to return something because of size they help any way they can.
