Dog Anxiety Vest

What is a dog anxiety vest?

Garments that are specially designed to deal with anxiety in dogs are called dog anxiety vests. Research has shown that if a certain amount of pressure is put in the torso region of dogs to calm them. This helps the dog to lower the anxiety just like babies are hugged or swaddled when they cry. There are a lot of pet care brands that offer dog anxiety vests which can work wonders for your dog.

 

What is the functioning procedure of a Dog anxiety vest?

It is very important to position the dig anxiety vest on your pup’s body. If done in this way, the pressure will get spread out in an even manner on the sides of your dog’s body and over the back. This will seem like a very soothing hug to your pet.

 

How effective is a Dog anxiety vest?

This is a question that cannot be answered objectively. The reason being, that every dog is different, their relationship with their owners is different and they suffer from different anxieties. But there are a lot of instances which have proven the effectiveness of a dog anxiety vest. Often dogs have responded positively to triggers while wearing a dog anxiety vest. This is especially effective if your pup is dealing with separation anxiety. We will later explain what separation anxiety is.

 

How to make best use of a Dog anxiety vest?

The first step for you to make proper use of a dog anxiety vest is to strap it on our dog from time to time. This also includes those times when your dog is in a good mood and does not show any signs of anxiety. Since a vest is an added garment, it might cause some initial discomfort in your pet but it will soon get accustomed to wearing the vest. This is why, you must make your dog wear it quite frequently.

We would suggest that you take other measure to control dog anxiety so that the vest works the best. This means making use of natural or medicinal techniques. A good move is to consult a vet and figure out the kind of anxiety your dog has. Often, most dogs suffer from separation anxiety which is caused from a prolonged distance from the owner.

So, unless you address the source of your dog’s anxiety methodically through an expert, it might never really cure your dog completely. The best way is to keep other treatments ongoing while making your dog wear a dog anxiety vest.

 

Other treatments

Other methods of treating anxiety in dogs, when used with a dog anxiety vest, will result in an all-round growth in your pet. This will also accelerate the process of coping up with anxiety in your pet. We suggest natural ways initially. If they do not work, then you can go to a doctor who will prescribe either homeopathic or allopathic medicines for your pooch. Here are some natural ways to treat anxiety in dogs:

 

Creating a healthy environment

Your dog is comfortable in your space, we agree. But in the case of extreme circumstances like loud noise outside, thunderstorms, mild earthquakes, arriving of a lot of guests, etc, your dog might suddenly become hostile to the environment around itself. This is why we suggest that you create a space for your dog within the limits of your home, which will serve as a retreat to your pet. Whenever unfavorable circumstances arise, your dog can move into the retreat. This can be done by training.

 

Exercise

Exercising helps secrete hormones that calm your dog and it releases the pent up energy in your pet. This will serve to make your dog fit as well. Also, if you both exercise together, there is a strong sense of friendship that is formed, accompanied by trust. This will go a long way to alleviate separation anxiety in your dog and to instill faith in them. Needless to say, exercise will have long term health benefits both physically and mentally. So, this is indeed a great option.

 

Turn up the volume

Do not take this very literally. We do not ask you to torture your dog with extreme loud music played in your home but play a soothing music. This means that you should try to find out the kind of music that your dog loves and appreciates. Then see if the dog is alright with listening to that music over a long period of time. Once this is done, you can play that music whenever your dog shows signs of anxiety and you will see that this will definitely have calming effects on your pet.

 

Train

Training your dog to deal with anxiety can sound quite difficult and might also be time taking. But patience is the key here. You can check out online on how to train your dog to do away with anxiety. We can suggest some easy ways like making use of toys and dog treats. Give easy instructions to your pet and reward it with toys and treats when it follows your instructions successfully.

Dog anxiety is pretty common these days so you need not worry so much if your dog is suffering from it. It is just that, taking the right steps will make your dog a long way and the quicker they are taken, the better. So, buying a dog anxiety vest is the first conscious step that you take towards helping your pet if it is facing anxiety issues.
