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.

He Asks For It!

Our 7 year old shih tzu poodle mix has epilepsy. Medication has completely controlled his seizures, but unfortunately he still struggles with the epilepsy related anxiety. We purchased this shirt before he was diagnosed and noticed some difference when he had it on, but not when he was in full panic mode. Since he has been medicated and the anxiety is less intense, this shirt has been a godsend. It works so well that HE tells US when he wants it. Initially he would jump and crawl all over us (even when we were asleep at night) until we asked the right question: “Do you want your shirt?” And he would run over to where we keep it and wait for us to put it on him. Now, we leave it where he can get it and he brings it to us when he needs it. I wasn’t sure at first about this and I can see where it might not work for some dogs with severe anxiety and it is a bit wonky to put on, but when it works, it is magical.

Really does what it is supposed to do

I have only had it a week and a half and have had two occasions. One was a case of someone nearby setting off fireworks and the other was a bad storm. Both times it worked great. Especially the morning of the storm. She woke me up trying to get between my pillow and the headboard. So i grabbed her wrap and as soon as she was in it she walked to the foot of the bed stretched out and fell asleep. I am so relieved that there is something to help calm her anxieties.

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.

Nope for me

Eighty pound Laszlo doesn't fit into the XL very well or maybe too well! The directions are minimal and confusing. Thunderstorms predicted this afternoon, so we'll see if it helps

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!
