Are you struggling with a dog that has anxiety or cannot sleep?

Calming Pets' weighted blankets can help relieve stress and anxiety in dogs. And because they help your beautiful pet feel calmer, they can also improve your dog's sleep.

And that means you can stop worrying about them and get some time for yourself.

Here are three key ways that a Calming Pets' weighted blanket can help your fur baby.


Soothe your dog to sleep at night

Helps your dog fall asleep so that you don't have to listen to them pacing up and down all. night. long.

Calm a dog's anxiety in the car

Calm your dog's fear of travelling

Soothes the panicked feelings away that reduce your dog to a lump of quivering jelly in the car.

Reduce your dog's sensitivity to loud noises

If loud noises stress your dog, then a weighted blanket can help them relax and reduce their stress levels.

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.

We have a 3 year old rescue male Rottweiler who we adopted 18 months ago. He came to us with severe anxiety. We tried everything to help him overcome this!!

A friend suggested a weighted blanket. Since we bought it he has been a different doggie!!

He asks for us to put it on him at bedtime. It has worked wonders for storms and any other loud noises like tradies working in the area. We got a 5kg minky and cotton one!

Thank you Calming Pets got helping my furbaby."

My pooch doesn’t travel very well. She becomes anxious and stressed. Putting the blanket over her helps to calm and reduce the stress. Making the journey more enjoyable for all.

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!"

He loves it.

Just plopped over beside me as soon as I put it on him."

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.

My anxious shacky 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.

My pooch gets anxious when having to drive in the car.

Placing her under the blanket helps her to stay calm and we all arrive happy.

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 switches off the "fight or flight" response


Deep Pressure Touch switches off your dog's body's "fight or flight" response.

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


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


Deep Pressure Touch then floods your dog's blood stream with "feel-good" neurotransmitters and hormones that calm the mind.


Custom-made to give your pet the best calming effect

We make each and every weighted blanket for a dog to order.

This means that we custom-make them to be around 10% of your pet's body weight. This gives the best calming Deep Pressure Touch effect to help reduce their anxiety and help them sleep better.

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.
