The instructions can be found in the description of the item, under the "size" tab. I've also attached one below.

Can this be worn with a harness so leash can be attached?
Answer by ChewyJan 14, 2021
We do not recommend placing a harness on top of the ZenDog Calming Shirt, as it may cause irritation. It is best to attach a leash to your pets collar while they are wearing the shirt.

impossible to put on

I wanted to love this. The material is awesome. The idea is great and it seemed practical. But my 10lb Chihuahua mix hated it immediately. She considered getting into it a form of assault. She has a tiny head and limbs but a disproportionately bigger muscular body. So it is not totally a miss by the company, but on my dog it fits like a sausage casing ie you have to get the dogs front legs and head into a small tight space. It stretches so it's likely on some small dogs it is perfect But I couldn't get her into it without a lot of effort so it was an epic fail on my part. She was all fight and no cooperation, and after finally getting it on her, I realized that it was a recipe to get bitten if it was actually storming and she was stressed. I think I am just going to swaddle her like an infant instead and see how that goes because she is too tiny for the next size up. Unfortunately I will be returning the great little coat and the next storm will be no fun as usual, but at least I won't get snapped at.

Anxiety vest

This vest seemed like a good idea since my dog has separation anxiety but she managed to get out of it... maybe that's on me for not putting it on tight enough.

Great if your dog can’t rip it off

My dog has a lot of anxiety. He seemed to genuinely enjoy his shirt. Unfortunately he learned how to get it off very quickly. Now he always takes off the top Velcro and leaves it half way on.

Tears Easily

It would definitely work well but the 2nd time I took it off my dog, the fabric tore very easily as I was pulling the velcro open to take it off of him. Definitely not worth the money to only be able to use it twice.

i was able to ride 6 hours in the car without panting and howling

rescue 3 year old bichon poodle could not ride in the car and after the zen shirt-he slept for 5 hours 45 minutes and only went hyper when we got near home, this review is for real,

Xsmall fit my 5 lb dog

My dog is calmer in the car with the vest on. He is very anxious in the car and he was still a little nervous but he was better.

Too small for dog

The shirt is still a little small for my 75lb. Dutch Shephard

Size not right for my dog

This is a nice shirt but my 14 lb Yorkie was too long for it. Couldn’t get it on him without a fight.

Amazing product!!

Very impressed and I was skeptical when purchasing this for my shorky...but honestly would highly recommend this product for anxiety!!. It has completely changed him from a panting mess to a calm dog for the 2 hour drive each way and now he travels in the vehicle with ease ! Thanks Zenshirt for such a simple solution!

Might work a tad

My dog has extreme anxiety so I wanted to try this. She is around my parents all day because they watch my three dogs but as soon as they come to my house she runs and hides from them. She will now stay downstairs but still doesn’t go near them. There are two websites on the package if you want to “learn” about their products that are no longer websites so there is no info to look up. It says machine washable but no where does it tell you the settings etc.
