    My anxious shaky Chihuahuas love their Calming Pets Weighted Blankets!

    Once they’re tucked in for the night, they stay put, and don’t get up to bark every five minutes, unless it’s genuinely needed. Beautiful blankets! Highly recommended.

    I have an extremely damaged rescue pup who we adopted in 2017. She came to us with severe anxiety due to being beaten, abused and neglected for the first 8 months of her life. We had multiple trainers and behaviourists assess her and resulted in medicating her to try and calm her down.

    About 6 months ago I came across weighted blankets and figured it couldn’t hurt to try something else to ease her anxiety and this by far was the best thing we have EVER bought for her!

    Some nights she would be uncontrollable even with medication, she would be unsettled, nervous and frantic. It could take hours to get her to sleep, settle or just keep still.

    Now, she is calm and settles within seconds of the blanket being put over her!! It is now a part of her regular routine and she will alert me when she needs it during the day and waits to be covered in it every night!!!

    Hands down worth every single cent! We have had the most success for using this blanket than we had with medicines!

    I would highly recommend to anyone struggling with anxious pets.

    Going on 3.5 hours. Hasn’t moved. She’s snoring. Very content.

    She’s usually wandering around the house annoying me at this time of night, click clacking on my wood floors cause she can’t relax.

    I think she might be staying put tonight!

    I have a Miniature Schnauzer, Ruby. Along with her age, she suffers severe anxiety. Her blanket is incredible. She actually gets ON her weighted blanket and makes noises until I place the weighted blanket OVER her. She immediately relaxes. This blanket is amazing.

How Calming Pets’ Weighted Blankets Work to Soothe a Dog’s Stress and Anxiety

Weighted blankets work by using Deep Pressure Touch. This is a firm but gentle pressure that calms the mind and body.

Deep Pressure Touch Works in Three Phases

Step 1

Deep Pressure Touch switches off your dog’s body’s “fight or flight” response.

Step 2

Deep Pressure Touch physically slows the heart and breathing rates. This means that your dog’s body feels calmer.

Step 3

Deep Pressure Touch then floods your dog’s blood stream with “feel-good” neurotransmitters and hormones that calm its mind.

Five Tips About How to Use a Weighted Blanket to Calm a Dog’s Anxiety

It’s horrible to watch your dog suffer from anxiety in the car. Or to come home and find your furniture destroyed because they are scared to be home alone all day.

Read this article to discover 5 ways that you can practically use a weighted blanket to help calm a dog’s anxiety.

How We Make Calming Pets’ Weighted Blankets for Dogs

Each Calming Pets’ weighted blanket for a dog is filled with two layers of cotton wadding.

We sew a number of same size pockets into each weighted blanket and fill each one with the same weight of micro glass beads.

We don’t use plastic poly pellets because these have uncomfortable edges that poke into your body. Plastic poly pellets also rustle and make a rattling noise – which will disturb your dog’s rest.

The cotton wadding keeps the beads evenly spread through each pocket. And because each pocket has a standard weight of beads in it, the blanket’s weight is evenly dispersed through it.

This means that there is no pulling or bunching and that the blanket’s weight stays evenly dispersed through it. This means your dog gets consistent calming Deep Pressure Touch over their whole body. This results in the best calming benefit for your dog.
