The Calmz Anxiety Relief System thinks it can settle down your nervous pup using some of the same techniques research shows help people with the same high levels of stress and anxiety. Have you seen the weighted blankets making the pop culture rounds? The Calmz system sews the blanket idea into a fitted vest that gives anxious dogs the feeling of being hugged safe. It also nestles a Calmz digital device inside the vest that hits acupressure points along the dog's spine. When activated, the device plays "a therapeutic medley of classical music, tones and vibrations called NeuroSync Technology which soothes their anxiety."

Yeah, I'm rolling my eyes too. But with a solid 4-day 4th of July weekend of fireworks headed this way, I'd be more than happy for some of my neighbors to invest in a Calmz system for their freaked out and howling Shih Tzus, yellow labs, and beagles. They can vest them up during summer thunderstorms and our raucous rounds Punderdome of too.

Calmz notes that when a dog's adrenaline and anxiety respond to his / her "trigger," blood flow to the brain decreases, and the symptoms of panic and malaise set in. The say their Calmz vest-vibration-tonal trifecta plugs into a dog's key acupressure points to help full blood flow to the brain, and then normal neural firing, resume. The result, if the system works, is reduced anxiety levels.

The Calmz device emits gentle vibrations and plays 2 sounds, classical music and a calming tone. Calmz says both have been proven beneficial in canine anxiety reduction. Vests come in sizes XS through XL.
