My dog is a real nervous Nelly. She hates thunderstorms and car rides. She’s even petrified of squirrels! And while it can be funny to watch a giant dog cower in the presence of a tiny rodent, no one likes to see their precious pup all upset and anxious.
And even though calming down our four-legged friends usually just involves a hug and some treats, there’s a new idea that could help our pets de-stress… and it’s not what you think.
This do-it-yourself therapeutic half-wrap is making the rounds on social media. It helps dogs chill out during a time of high stress. To make it, all you need is a piece of fabric the length and width of a scarf.
Then, wrap it around your dog at their chest and their withers.
The half-wrap makes them feel cozy and protected. This is the next best thing to having your arms around them.
hey aren’t just helpful. They can also be very stylish.
Making a half-wrap shouldn’t take much time, but you could also just buy one for your best friend.
This is the greatest idea to keep my dog sane. I’m definitely trying it when we need to go to the vet again!
