Anxiety can be so stressful to dogs and their owners, I know this because Bruin suffers from anxiety when we go on walks. The moment we put the leash on him, he begins to pant heavily and is constantly looking all around. With every sound he hears, whether it's a dog barking or a car driving by he grows more and more stressed.
How Does it Work?The Calmz™Anxiety Relief System provides clinically proven relief to dogs suffering from stressful situations and anxiety. Calmz is a 2 component system that includes an adjustable vest and a multi-functional device.
The vest was very simple to put on and fit the Bruin's size. With just a couple of buckles to snap, a velcro closure and a little adjusting, we were almost ready to hit the road.
This device is a battery-operated unit with multiple settings that your dog can hear and feel. The vest is designed to fit snuggly on your dog with the Calmz unit held securely in the pouch on top of your dog's spine and acupressure points.
Once turned on, the Calmz device has 8 different pre-programmed settings which allows you to adjusts the intensity of the vibrations (low/high) and how long you want the cycle to run (mins/hours).
Here is a helpful video explaining how to use the Calmz System.
Our Results. Did it Work?I have certainly noticed a difference in Bruin's anxiety level since using this Calmz vest. Before he would be jumping, whinning and barking when he heard a dog bark on our walks. Since wearing the vest, he seems to be calmer, he is still panting a bit but he is definitely improving.
Here is a video of Bruin on his first walk wearing the Calmz vest. You can hear a dog barking in the background and Bruin stopping to look in that direction but has very little reaction.
Our Final ThoughtsThe Calmz™Anxiety Relief System has offered Bruin some relief on our walks. As with anything, it takes times and consistency. I do believe this vest and device has helped relieve Bruin's stress level on our walks and for that reason, I will be adding this to our collection of tools that help give Bruin some relief.
The vest was simple to put on and adjust. The device was a little confusing at first but after reading through the step-by-step instructional booklet about each of the programmed settings, I was able to find a setting that worked for Bruin's individual needs.
If you have a dog with anxiety issues such as thunderstorms, car rides, loud noises and vet visits to name a few, we recommend giving the Calmz Anxiety Relief System a try. You can learn more about it and purchase one of your own by visiting their website.
