A Calming Blend for Dogs
"My Peaceful Paws" is one of the most effective natural anxiety remedies out there. It is an essential oil blend with calming properties made specifically for dogs. 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. 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.
The sense of smell is the only one of the five senses directly linked to the Limbic lobe of the brain, the emotional control center. Anxiety, depression, fear, anger,
and joy all emanate from this region. The scent of a special fragrance can evoke memories and emotions before we are even consciously aware of it. When smells
are concerned, we react first and think later. When used regularly your dog will start to connect the scent of the blend with the feeling of being calm.
Essential oils are very potent and should never be used undiluted on animals. "My Peaceful Paws" is mixed in a base of Safflower oil and is ready to use as directed on
the bottle. The blend usually takes about 10 - 15 minutes to start working, but some see an effect faster than that. Remember all dogs are different.
