Dog Calming Products Reviews
Read our reviews of the best natural dog calming products below. All of our products have been tried and tested on our own dogs. In the run-up to Fireworks Night, dog owners with noise sensitive or anxious dogs should start to use a natural dog calmer from mid October right the way through to mid November to ensure maximum effect. The advantage of these natural calmers is they won’t leave your dog in a zombie like state as stronger solutions may do but they do help your dog to cope with their extreme stress.
Calming Treats for Dogs
We have tried many different calming treats for dogs and Quiet Moments Calming Aid chews from Overby Farm are among the best. The chews contain a unique blend of thiamine and L-tryptophan to help reduce stress, tension and separation anxiety. Thiamine, a vitamin B, affects the central nervous system of anxious animals, supporting calming and cognition. Also useful to calm a dog during fireworks. L-tryptophan increases a brain chemical called serotonin and is known to promote a sense of well-being and calm in the brain. Ginger supports sensitive stomachs which is especially important when traveling.
We have our very own anxious German Shorthaired Pointer at home who suffers from extreme separation anxiety. Now 3 years old she used to get incredibly stressed when she was left alone even for the shortest periods. She would shake, howl and pace the house until we returned. However we have used these chews on her with impressive results. We give her 3 chews daily and she is definitely calmer and more relaxed. What's more, in spite of being a relative fussy eater she is more than happy to eat these tasty chews. The effect seems to be cumulative as it took about a week before we started to see the benefits. We videoed her improvement and nowadays she goes into her crate for a snooze when left home alone. No more scattered cushions and mess upon our return. For a medium sized dog you will need to give approx 2-3 chews daily. They are great for thunderstorms, fireworks, travel, grooming and separation issues. Active Ingredients include Brewers yeast, chamomile, passion flower and ginger. Read customer reviews here .

Contains Herbal Tinctures of: Valerian, Oat, Skullcap, Passionflower, Wild Lettuce and Jamaican Dogwood. We have many happy customers who buy this product regularly. I personally witnessed its effect when I gave it to a friend whose dog, Luna, would cower every time a visitor came to the door. We gave CalmXtra to Luna 30 minutes before a visitor's arrival and the effect was remarkable. Luna remained curled up on her cushion when the visitor arrived. My friend was amazed by the change in her dog's behaviour.
