Weighted blankets have been around for people for quite some time, now this alternative way of combating anxiety and other sensory disorders can be used for your dog.  The Canine Coddler is the first weighted blanket designed for dogs and is intended to be warm and to provide gentle pressure to a dog, mimicking the feeling of being held. The sensation will have a positive effect on dog's moods while reducing stress and anxiety.

Both blankets measure to 36" x 48", with a machine washable cover and sell from $80 to $130. Pre-order now with deliveries set for the end of the year.
