Canine fear, anxiety, and stress are neuro-chemical responses that can be helped by the Calmz Anxiety Relief System for dogs. An adjustable, comfort-fit compression vest cradles a therapeutic device over specific acupressure points on your dog’s spine. When you activate the device, the clinically proven NeuroSync technology takes over. Your dog will hear and feel a therapeutic blending of classical music, low-frequency tuning fork tones, and mild vibrations that soothe anxiety and signal your dog's brain to shut down the production of adrenalin.
Functionally, the multi-modal Calmz therapeutic delivery system employs vestibular (audible) and peripheral sensory (tactile) stimulations to achieve test-proven anxiety relief in dogs. The vestibular stimulation is the result of low-frequency tuning fork tones that are blended with a modified version of the classical piece, Beethoven's Für Elise. The peripheral sensory stimulation comes from the massaging sensation generated from the device when placed on acupressure calming points along the spine, creating a sense of being touched and caressed.
The Calmz system is preprogrammed with 8 treatment settings (consisting of vibration intensity, duration, and repeat cycle variations) that give you options for administering therapy. When used over a period of time, studies have shown that the Calmz system is effective in helping dogs relax and feel calm in many anxiety-provoking scenarios such as thunderstorms, travel, loud noises, strangers, other dogs, vet visits.
In the canine anxiety pilot study, mean heart rates decresed from 134 to 121 and mean respiratory rates decreased from 52 to 47. A majority of dogs appeared significantly calmer in post-treatment observation in a stressful environment.
Packaging: You will receive a Calmz adjustable vest and a Calmz controller device. The device requires 3 AAA batteries (not included).

Will I have to train my dog to use the Calmz Anxiety Relief System?

Can the Calmz vest be used as a walking harness?
