Is your dog sensitive to loud noises, firecrackers, thunderstorms or rain hitting your roof? Here are two things that help our dog Akira when she’s stressed:
- Put 10 drops of Valerian tincture (I use Herb Pharm brand) and 10 drops of Chamomile tincture in your dog’s bowl. Add a drop of honey and a few drops of water and mix it up. The honey will help entice your dog to lap it up. (Thanks to our holistic practitioner Dr. Richard Bloom for recommending it)
- Make your own calming wrap from ace bandages. It’s easy to do following the steps in the Calming Wrap video linked below. (Thanks to dog trainer Nancy La Fontaine for sending it to me!) Click here for the CALMING WRAP video
- Tip for you: Mix 20 drops of Valerian tincture and 20 drops of Chamomile tincture in a little water and drink it up. Dogs pick up on our vibes and this mixture will help you relax. It works for me!
