What’s It For?
Sportz-Vibe is a lightweight and portable massage jacket for dogs that is designed to increase circulation to your dog’s back and hips. This increase in blood flow makes tendons and ligaments more elastic and helps bring oxygen and nutrients to the area. It also helps to reduce inflammation by stimulating the lymphatic system to remove toxins.
The Sportz-Vibe Massage Jacket can be used with performance dogs as part of your warm-up routine before activity to reduce the risk of injury as well and as part of your recovery/cool-down routine after activity. It can also be used for dogs suffering from back problems or hip conditions to help ease soreness and stiffness.
This technology has been used in horse blankets for a number of years.

How It Works
The Sportz-Vibe Massage Therapy Jacket comes with two removable massage panels that vibrate alternately on either side of the dog’s back to stimulate circulation. The rug automatically switches off after 10 minutes and can be used up to 3 times a day. The XS, Small, and Medium jackets come with a 2 motor rechargeable battery and the Large and XL jackets come with a 4 motor rechargeable battery. A universal charger is also included. The battery can be recharged in 2 hours.
You can remove the electronics from the jacket and use it simply for warmth, if desired.

We have now tried the massage blanket on our search and rescue dogs Hurricane and Rejza.
Both really enjoy the massage they get from the blanket.
The good thing is, we think it shuts itself off, so you don’t need to keep track of how long the massage has been going on.
We have noticed the biggest difference with Hurricane; she is now 7 1/2 years and has been working for years as a fully trained search and rescue dog. After the massage, she is very mischievous, becoming like a youngster again and with a spring in her step.
I am absolutely convinced that using the massage rug can help dogs to work for longer and more effectively.

The rug is fab! Maisy hasn’t shown any lameness since using it. She absolutely loves having it on and leans against things to make the vibration pad press a little firmer. It will be fantastic for her after a hard day’s shooting to help her muscles relax, As Maisy is an older dog I think it is a huge benefit and I can tell if I haven’t put it on for a day or two.
I used the Sportz vibe rug on a German Shepherd that suffers with his hips in the winter months. I used the rug four times a week. He loved wearing it and we noticed a big difference in him this winter. He was livelier and moved better. It definitely made a difference and we were just amazed how excited he gets when we put it on him.

Laddie enjoyed his Sportz vibe rug immensely. He suffers from arthritis particularly in his elbows and hips. I can see that he gets great relief when the rug is placed on him. Every time I put the rug on he immediately goes for a nap and appears very relaxed.
