WALNUT CREEK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Comfort Zone® Calming Vest for Dogs, from the No. 1 retail brand in pet behavior management, has been named Product of the Year for 2019 in the dog care category. Product of the Year is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, where winners are determined by the votes of over 40,000 consumers in a national representative survey conducted by research partner Kantar TNS, a global leader in consumer research.

For over 30 years globally, and 11 years in the U.S., Product of the Year has guided consumers to the best products on the market by recognizing companies and brands for quality and product innovation. Each year, Product of the Year accepts entries from consumer-packaged goods companies that demonstrate innovation and were launched within the previous 12 months. The entries span a wide breadth of product categories, such as food, beverages, personal care, household care, pet and more, with one product being chosen as the winner in each category.

“It is such an honor that the Comfort Zone® Calming Vest for Dogs has been selected as a 2019 Product of the Year award winner,” said Scott Lazarczyk, Health & Wellness General Manager at Central Garden & Pet Company.  “Much like humans, dogs get stressed in certain situations, especially those they cannot get away from like thunderstorms or fireworks. The swaddling effect of our vest provides a constant, gentle pressure across the dog’s torso and is proven to calm and reduce signs of stress.”
