ZenCrate, the world’s first motion-activated, intelligent pet crate specifically designed to reduce anxiety in dogs, says it is proud to announce a partnership with Dr. Lisa Radosta of Florida Veterinary Behavior Services to begin a series of clinical research studies that aim to determine the effect of ZenCrate’s anxiety-reducing abilities when it comes to noise and storm phobia in dogs.
The clinical study is expected to confirm the efficacy of the product which is known to provide a safe place for dogs during anxiety attacks. The ZenCrate uses scientifically-proven strategies including sound therapy and vibration-dampening technology to reduce the anxiety. The stress-relieving features also include an orthopedic memory foam bed, motion-activated music with a curated anti-anxiety playlist, sound insulation to reduce anxiety, motion-activated fan for improved ventilation and WiFi enabled to view your pet from smartphones.
“The ZenCrate holds promise as a part of a complete treatment plan for storm and noise aversion and phobias lowering fear, anxiety and stress in dogs afflicted with those disorders,” Dr. Radosta said. “I am excited to be a participant in upcoming research to assess the effect of the ZenCrate on fear, anxiety and stress in dogs afflicted with storm and noise aversions and phobias.”
Starting her career in veterinary medicine in 2000 at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Radosta went on to complete a residency in behavioral medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 2006 and has owned Florida Veterinary Behavior Service since 2007. Being one of the only 69 board certified veterinary behaviorists in the United States, Dr. Radosta takes an innovative approach when it comes to her studies and use of medicine and has participated in tracking, obedience, herding and therapy dog work.
