If you have a dog, like I do, who stresses over strange situations, loud noises or strangers, you may want to try calming treats for him or her. Let me give you my experience with our wonderful Truman.
Truman is a medium-sized dog, about 30 pounds. She is mixed with Am Staff and possibly Yellow Lab, but her personality is all Am Staff. It is her job to protect her family. When visitors come that she doesn’t know well enough, she stress barks at them. She is scared of them, but nonetheless stress barks. She also stresses out over thunderstorms. Trying to figure out how to calm her down, just about caused me to go bald pulling my hair out.
Until we tried calming treats, that is. It was just about magical how well these things worked! Just as the guests were arriving the first time, we gave her one. Within ten minutes, she was quite and came to visit with us. Still no touching of the strangers were allowed, but she settled down with us. That was miraculous!
We had to give her another one within 2 hours, but that also worked like a charm. In our neck of the woods, Halloween brings with it lots of noise. She will be getting calming treats through out the evening, I can assure you.
These treats haven’t worked for everyone. It seems they either work like magic or they don’t work at all. For us, I will no longer be without them! And they are worth a try for you if you have a dog that stresses over strangers, loud noises, thunderstorms, whatever.
