CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System Review & Giveaway

Just when we thought we had seen every pet product innovation out there, we are blown away by the CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System. The CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System is a new product to aid in relieving pet anxiety.

Your pet’s anxiety can be caused by storms, fireworks, loud noises, card rides and many other situations. Common symptoms of an anxious dog can be panting, drooling, vocalizing, chewing, inappropriate urination, hiding, pinned ears and other a-typical behaviors. As responsible pet parents, it’s upsetting to see our pets anxious or scared, and we try every way possible to console them and restore calm. That’s where the CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System comes in.

The Calmz® Anxiety Relief System for dogs consists of an adjustable vest that cradles a device over specific acupressure points on your dog’s spine. When the device is activated, the clinically proven NeuroSync Technology takes over. Your dog will hear and feel a therapeutic blending of classical music, tones and vibrations that soothes anxiety within minutes.

Turning on the Calmz® system activates peripheral sensory nerves that signal the spinal cord as well as the brain’s cortex and parietal lobe. The frontal lobe in turn activates the cerebellum, which controls sympathetic outputs, helping vasodilation and oxygenation, resulting in reduced stress. Additionally, auditory vibrational stimulation, delivered at specific frequencies, activates vestibular nerves and along to the cerebellum. This combination of stimulation aids in diminishing anxiety in dogs, allowing them to relax.

The video below explains how the CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System works as well as the common triggers of canine fear, anxiety and stress.

The new Petmate CALMZ® Anxiety Relief System for dogs combines high-tech innovation with acupressure in a revolutionary non-invasive, drug-free treatment that soothes anxiety.

We received an XL for our 83 pound Baylie.  It’s fit was a little snug, but was not binding due to its elastic bands and soft, flexible material.   Baylie gets a little nervous during inclement weather; not so much the thunder and lightning, but the wind.

All dogs react differently to stimuli so it’s imperative to acclimate your pet to the device. Baylie was a bit confused by the vibration when we first turned on the unit. By adjusting the settings and putting the vest on and taking it off for a period, she now accepts it without hesitation.

Here’s how it works:

  • During stress events, dogs have decreased blood flow in the frontal cortex – the processing area of the brain.
  • Stimulating blood flow improves neural firing and communication with the spine and the brain, thus relieving anxiety.

The system features:

  • Eight preprogrammed treatment settings, consisting of vibration intensity, duration and repeat cycle variations
  • One Comfort Fit Vest and one device
  • No prescriptions, no drugs, no edibles, no refills or veterinarian visits required
  • Comes in XS-XL to fit dogs of all sizes
  • Requires 3 AAA batteries (not included)
  • MSRP $129.00

You can purchase directly from Calmz.com or Amazon.com.

    my dog is deatly afraid of thunderstorms wonder if this came in her size which has to be a 3 or 4 xlarge. Since 2x coats r too small on her

    • Margie, I believe the largest size is XL. I’m wearing an XL and I’m 84 lbs.

    I have three rescued Treeing Walker Coonhounds. Two of them – Kyoko and Seiji – were possibly used for hunting (Kyoko even has buckshot in her). They are loving family members now, but I guess memories of the guns going off have them both deathly afraid of thunder, fireworks, and other loud noises. I’ve tried Thundershirts, calming pills, and calming spray. Even in combination, they help, but I hate seeing my dogs suffer when it storms. We’ve been getting SO many storms lately, too. I’m still searching for the perfect solution. Fingers crossed we win and this helps!

  • Mary W

    My male Border Collie exhibits several of the symptoms listed above. He is an obsessive chewer and will snap, bark, pant and pin his ears back for any reason at all. At times, he seems so miserable and this product would be worth a try.

  • Kimberly M

    My pup was bit by another dog at the cabin at 8 months old. Now he’s scared and anxious at the cabin which was his happy place I’d love to try this to see my happy boy back.

  • Ryan

    We rescue a puggle from a neighbor that treat Mr. Ryan unfairly. They would chain him up outdoors for hours on end. They come home from shopping or where ever they went, he wanted attention and they would us their foot to shove him out of their way. He would hide in the bushes. Their son would use a hose or a stick on the poor pup. We been wanting to get the pup from them when we started to notice strange happening to him we even contact several agencies and they told us eventually they will get tired of the dog and get rid of him. Sure enough they did. Right to our front door. they didn’t even bother calling animal control or a rescue to come and get him they walked him to our front door and lefted him. with a bag of food. Now Mr. Ryan has been dealing with sever anxiety issue since we have had him. He will love to try this

  • Jason Diehl

  • sherry butcher

    I’d love to have Blackie, my mixed bread try this because there is no prescriptions, no drugs, no edibles, no refills or veterinarian visits required.

  • Lisa F.

    I have a dog with storm anxiety and the noise of firecrackers that seem to start before memorial day and last well into July. This would be interesting to try.

  • SGilbert

    My dog Skipper is afraid of thunderstorm & fireworks. I hate drugging him for the meds the vet gave us because it makes him feel funny and it doesn’t calm him down. We have tried everything from the thiundershirt which does not help at all to wrapping him up in a blanket and holding him so he is not shaking so hard. This sounds like it would be perfect for Skipper. Every year at the 4H fair they have fireworks the whole 7 days. He so afraid to go out to the bathroom fear that the fireworks will go off.

  • Christine Aiello

    My dog Coco is terrified of fireworks and thunderstorms. She can’t get comfortable during them and just sits up and shakes. I would love to try this on her.

  • Cheryl Chervitz

    One of my Boston’s has a really bad habit of jumping, barking, biting and acting crazy whenever someone comes to our door. We have been told that its because of anxiety. Would love to see if this would help.

  • AnnaZed

    My senior dog Monty gets so anxious that he trembles. He’s also deaf so when he’s anxious he barks and barks.
