The Anxiety Wrap: Treating Canine Firework and Thunderstorm Fear

A Tufts University clinical study deems the Anxiety Wrap 89 percent effective in treating canine auditory based phobias. The patented design activates key pressure points to create a continuous, full-body acupressure experience. It can be used to treat: firework or thunderstorm fear, separation anxiety, constant barking, unwanted jumping, whining, nervousness, destructive chewing, fear biting.

Bridgeport, CT, June 04, 2015 --( Pet Anxiety Related Symptoms and Causes

Barking, panting and licking are all normal canine behaviors. However, when they’re displayed in excess or accompanied with pacing, whining, vomiting, destructive chewing/scratching, or aggressive outbursts, they may be symptomatic of a larger concern like pet anxiety.

Sensitive or reactive pets may demonstrate similar anxiety related behaviors during times of separation, travel, thunderstorms, or fireworks.

How the Anxiety Wrap works
The Anxiety Wrap® activates key pressure points where canines harbor stress, including in their neck and chest area, shoulders, midsection, and hind quarters. The wrap’s patented design creates a continuous, full-body acupressure experience that helps relieve or resolve the pet’s stress and the resulting behaviors stemming from fear, anxiety, hyperactivity, insecurity, and shyness.

Designed to be lightweight and breathable, the Anxiety Wrap’s custom made fabric features a four-way stretch that provides a snug fit that’s as unique as the dog wearing it. It easily flexes and moves with the pet for a comforting hug-like sensation.

The patented acupressure leg straps differentiate the Anxiety Wrap from competitors and maximize the product’s noteworthy top-to-tail calming effect. Made from wide, stretchy bands, the leg straps are easy to dress and never restrictive. Simply tuck the straps into the garment’s interior pockets when you don't want or need them.

To ensure the best fit and proper use, the Anxiety Wrap comes in seven canine sizes and has adjustable features to tailor the final fit. See the Anxiety Wraps size guide here:

Every element of the Anxiety Wrap was carefully considered by the designer, Susan Sharpe, (CPDT) a certified service and therapy trainer. When it debuted in 2001, it was the first of its kind and remains the superior choice among pet professionals.

Research Supported
Tufts University tested and deemed the product 89 percent effective in a clinical study, noting the Anxiety Wrap as a "safe and effective treatment for canine thunderstorm phobia." See the study here:

In most cases, it’s recommended that while the pet is wearing the Anxiety Wrap, the caregiver should refrain from interacting since over stimulating the pet can decrease the effectiveness of the wrap or override the acupressure.

The wrap has a proven track record of success and helps increase a dogs’ self-confidence, focus, animal-to-animal and animal-to-human socialization, bonding ability, relaxation, and balance. It can also be used to treat:
- Firework or thunderstorm fear
- Separation anxiety
- Constant barking
- Unwanted jumping
- Whining
- Nervousness
- Destructive chewing
- Fear biting


- Can the Anxiety Wrap be left on all day?
The Anxiety Wrap was designed to be comfortably worn for short or extended periods of time. For optimal results, and to prevent habituation, the pet should only wear it when needed.

- Will my pet overheat when wearing the Anxiety Wrap?
Unlike more restrictive wraps, the custom fabric comfortably, safely and effectively calms without causing the dog to overheat. The Anxiety Wrap can even be used as a cooling agent in warmer weather – just dampen the material before dressing the pet.

- How should I clean the Anxiety Wrap?
Simply wash the garment on delicate in cold water and hang dry.

- Will the Anxiety Wrap inhibit the use of a harness or collar?
Not in the least. Dress the pet in the Anxiety Wrap first and follow with the walking device.

- Can the pet potty while wearing the Anxiety Wrap?
Yes, regardless of gender.
