Barmy, an Illinois-based company, has launched a new range of weighted blankets that have been specifically designed for dogs.
Barmy’s current range of weighted blankets provide comfort, relief and relaxation to its human customers. This new range of blankets for dogs uses the same technology that provides deep pressure stimulation to give pets a warm hug during any stressful events.
The blankets come in 3 sizes, small, medium and large, and have a water-resistant coating. Each blanket has small pockets to hold the weight in place which ensures even distribution. The blankets also feature removable, washable covers.
CEO and Founder, Duncan Freer, said:” A lot of our existing customers told us that they used our current range of blankets for their pets but they were a little too big. So, we decided to design some great quality blankets to fit every size of dog.”
The blankets can be used to help pacify nervous pets at any time of the year but they are particularly helpful for pets who are affected by the loud noises from fireworks during the New Year celebrations. The blankets can also help with anxiety and nervousness caused by storms, separation, travel and visits to the vets.
Freer added:” Each cover is made from very soft minky material which is blue on one side and violet on the other side. Blue is known to help relax and pacify nervous dogs. Violet provides a soothing effect and helps promote calmness”.
