How to use the blend
For the best result start by applying the blend a
couple of times when your dog is already relaxed.
That way, the dog will start associating the scent
with feeling calm.
When you do have to leave, apply the blend 10-20
minutes before heading out, giving it time to start
working. If you crate your dog, then the blend can be
dripped on the bedding to make the scent stay with
the dog for extended periods. The blend can
be applied to a bandana, dripped on bedding, or on
a cotton collar to prolong the effect.
Fear of thunder
Apply My Peaceful Paws as soon as you notice the
dog getting restless. The blend takes about 15 minutes
to start working; however, some dogs respond faster.
Re-apply as needed, don’t overuse.
Stressful situations, vet visits, boarding, etc.
Apply before getting the dog in the car to let the
blend be effective when you arrive at the vet, training
classes , etc. If you have company over and that stresses
your dog out, then apply about 20 minutes before guests
arrive. Can also be used when the dog is boarding as it
can help reduce the stress of being away from home.
Dogs that are restless from illness, or have cognitive
decline can all benefit from using the blend too.
It can help everyone sleep at night.
Apply 15-30 minutes before grooming a nervous dog.
Sometimes applying the blend to the paw pads works
best as you might be bathing the dog, and cutting the
fur where the oil is otherwise applied. You can also put
the blend on your wrists as your hands will be at the
dogs face, and you will smell calming to the dog.
Shelter and rescue
The blend has proven very effective with shelter dogs.
If a dog is anxious about the dogs in the kennels next
to them - apply to the “neighbor” dogs too. You can
also apply the blend to your wrist when handling a
nervous dog. That way, everyone who handles the
dog smells “safe.”
