Swaddling, (or applying gentle, maintained pressure) is well-known as an effective way to calm babies. Fur babies are no different. Like humans, pets have pressure points that, when activated, help calm even the most anxious dogs.

- Activates pressure points
- Lightweight, breathable fabric

ZenDog Calming Compressions Shirts are twice as effective with companion ZenPet Calming Spray. An aromatherapy oil blend including lavender and chamomile. A 1oz trial is included within a purchase of a compression shirt. Use the spray on its own or spritz onto the enclosed aromatherapy card and insert into the front pocket on the shirt located on the chest area. It can also be used in the dog's bedding. Do not spray directly on to the dogs fur or skin.
Chest size is the best measurement for selecting size. Measure just behind the front legs at the largest point.
Sizing tip: When in doubt for a dog in-between sizes, always choose the next size up.
ZenDog advise that it is best to follow the following instructions to get the best out of their product:
To increase the likelihood of your dog responding well to Zendog, it is important to trial the product when your dog is relaxed and calm.
Before using the shirt, give your dog the chance to get used to it under stress-free conditions. First, rub it gently on your dog then allow your dog to sniff the shirt so the smell and feel of the material become familiar. Once your dog is familiar with the shirt, put Zendog on your dog (see fitting instructions in images) for a trial period – approximately 30 minutes.
Most dogs will relax during the first wearing. If not, reduce the trial to a few minutes over several sessions until your dog relaxes. Consider offering your dog a treat while it is wearing the shirt to promote a positive association with Zendog.
