Frequently Asked Questions:
Do anxiety vests work for dogs?
Dogs can suffer from fear and anxiety for a variety of reasons. Phobias, separation from their owner, unfamiliar environments, even health and age-related changes can contribute to dogs feeling anxious.
Anxiety vests are designed to apply gentle, even pressure across the back and torso. The rationale behind using an anxiety vest is the 'squeezing' action, which will release endorphins which are responsible for a sense of well-being.
To get the best results using anxiety vests, owners should apply the vest for a short period while the dog is completely calm. This will help avoid an aversion developing towards the anxiety vest. Anxiety vests should only be worn for short periods of time and always inspect the skin around the neck and armpits for signs of rubbing. Anxiety vests can be used in conjunction with medication and other anxiety aids such as adaptil, calming treats and zylkene. To read more about adaptil, see Your guide to using adaptil.
It is important to note that pets can still experience feelings of fear, stress and anxiety while wearing an anxiety vest. Anxiety vests will not address the underlying cause of the anxiety. Engaging a positive reinforcement behavioural trainer and working closely with your veterinarian are beneficial steps in addressing your dog's anxiety.
