A Calming Blend for Dogs
"My Peaceful Paws" is an essential oil blend with calming properties made specifically for dogs. The blend is applied topically which has it advantages over calming treats and supplements when dealing with an anxious dog. If you have ever had a dog that thinks thunder or fireworks means the sky is falling, then you know most of them won't take a treat once they are in "survival mode". A topical blend can be applied regardless and if you use a Thundershirt and it isn't quite enough to calm your dog, then the blend can be dripped on there for added effect. It can also be applied to bedding in your dog's crate if you are dealing with separation anxiety. (See the "How to use" page for more information)
It is used for dogs having issues with anxiety, fear of thunder, fireworks, performance nerves, anxiety around strangers, new places, vet and grooming visits, and unfamiliar settings. It can also help take the stress out of being away from home in boarding situations. My Peaceful Paws can also help older dogs struggling with the anxiety that comes with cognitive decline. Several dog trainers offer "My Peaceful Paws" to their clients in training situations where the dog stresses about the other dogs in class. It takes the edge off and allows the dog to focus on learning.
