Calming Vest FAQs
The Weighted Calm™ collection is designed to help calm anxious dogs. The collection includes a weighted calming vest, weighted blanket for dogs and a calming dog toy that applies a gentle weighted pressure to help create a calmer emotional state.
The collection is weighted with non-toxic microbeads to evenly distribute weight in specific locations on the dog. This helps create a calmer emotional state by providing a sensory distraction and offers a comforting pressure, similar to being hugged or pet.
The Weighted Calming Vest works by applying gentle pressure over the dog’s shoulders. This helps create a calmer emotional state by providing a sensory distraction through the comforting pressure, similar to being hugged or pet.
Canada Pooch is focused on the safety and wellbeing of all dogs. Canada Pooch consulted with Veterinary Behaviourist Dr. Colleen Wilson on the Weighted Calming Collection and carefully selected the weight of our vest to not exceed 3% of your dog’s body weight. It is not suited for dogs who have any pre-existing conditions such as problems with sleep, diabetes, medical concerns with circulation, back or neck issues, and /or low blood pressure.
The Weighted Calming Vest was created for dogs that experience stress and anxiety. It is a tool that can help provide stress relief for dogs. Dog anxiety can occur from situations such as thunderstorms, vet visits, fireworks, travel etc.
This is completely situational to your dog. It can be for long periods of time, but we recommend monitoring your dog and not leaving them unattended when using the anxiety dog vest.
You should use the weighted vest when you know you are about to enter a situation that causes your dog fear, anxiety, or stress or when you see visible signs of anxiety. For more information see our blog post here.
Your dog can sleep in the calming vest while being supervised. It is not recommended to leave the product on through the night unsupervised.
