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.
