Dog Calming Products
Dogs are complex creatures who, just like humans, can become stressed and anxious. Dogs may become stressed out because of a change of routine which has left them bored or full of too much energy. They may have picked up on the stress of an owner or a household due to a traumatic or difficult situation. Dogs might also have anxiety as a result of changes in the household which might come from people's working schedule shifting. All these factors, and potentially several more, could lead to a stressed dog. Along with plenty of one on one time and attention, and a healthy routine of walks and nutritious food, our range of dog calming products should be able to help stressed dogs find a more relaxed rhythm. Thankfully, there are today many products, from the dog calming collar to calming wipes, which will naturally work alongside your dog's neurotransmitters to reduce the level to which your dog gets fired up due to stress.
Stress and anxiety in dogs
If your dog is suffering from stress, then you will be able to notice this firstly through smaller behaviours such as a tail tucked between the legs and pacing back and forth. If this persists, and you have consulted your veterinarian to check that there are no other medical issues, then it is likely that stress is the cause. Your vet will be able to confirm this, and once they have done so, it will be important to pick up some products to help your lovely little pup find some calmness once more. It is key that you do this because consistent anxiety and stress in dogs can lead to destructive behaviours which might start out as excessive licking, urinary marking and barking, but can lead to scratching and furniture destruction.
Fear not, though, as there are people here to help. Beaphar for example have a range of products such as their dog calming spray and dog calming diffuser which will help to relax dogs effectively for up to 5 hours. These sprays copy the natural Pheromone which mother dogs produce to calm their puppies. Dogs associate this scent with all things calming and caring, and so will help them to relax, even when they have been moved into a new environment. These dog calming aids can therefore be of great value when you are moving into a new house.
Naturally calming extracts
You might also want to try Beaphar calming spot on if you are looking for a longer lasting calming effect. If you know that there are going to be storms over a number of days and that your dog if frightened of thunder, if you are moving house, or perhaps if there are some loud festivities going on nearby with fireworks, then this mild natural sedative could be just the thing. Using a drop of the valerian extract in Spot On, you will be able to allay feelings of stress and cultivate a sense of calm in your dog for up to a week. This extract is perfectly safe to use on healthy adult dogs, but do check with your vet before using it that your dog has no underlying health conditions which might cause issues.
