Owners can now calm their anxious dogs in no time, with a pioneering coat that gives pets a therapeutic hug.

Now available from The Company of Animals, the fast-acting Anxiety Wrap is a lightweight, breathable pressure wrap especially designed to calm anxious, excitable, or fearful dogs.

The cleverly designed elasticated wrap uses scientifically proven acupressure on key points of the dog’s body, as well as gentle maintained pressure to relieve stress, mimicking the calming effects of hugging a distressed child.

A US clinical study has shown these techniques to be effective in calming nine out of ten distressed dogs.

The Company of Animals’ founder Dr Roger Mugford said: “The Anxiety Wrap is a tried-and-tested solution and works as a brilliant natural alternative to sedatives to calm worried pets.

Not only are the techniques used by the Anxiety Wrap scientifically proven but the wrap is highly regarded by vets, trainers and dog owners in the United States.

The Anxiety body wrap can also be combined with a facial wrap for an even stronger calming effect.  This simple device calms over-excited dogs prone to excessive barking and is therefore named ‘Quiet Dog’”.

Anxiety Wrap Pack ShotA huge fan of the power of Anxiety Wrap to calm any dog, Dr Mugford has seen the product provide astounding results with his patients at the Training and Behaviour Centre.

One memorable case he helped with Anxiety Wrap was a TV talent show winner. While the animal was a confident top dog in the show ring, it was easily upset and scared by the adulation it received, becoming nervous at lots of attention, clapping and celebratory fireworks. However, applying the Anxiety Wrap created an instant calming effect in the star performer.

The Anxiety Wrap is made from 98 per cent polyester and two per cent Spandex.  It has unique non-restrictive butt straps which allow animals to jump, run and swim with ease.  Unlike other body wraps, it does not over heat the dog.

The Anxiety wrap comes in seven different sizes and retails at £29.99. The Quiet Dog is available in 5 sizes and retails at £4.99.
