Disappointed in this product
I am disappointed in this item I used as directed and saw no difference in my girls behavior.
Docile Dog works
I've tried other products and this one does work. I only wish I could get a big bucket of it like I can the vitamins because I have 8 dogs. Not all of them need it but I do have a few that are hyper and or nervous and were never taught to be still. I have large dogs, not small, and so a large bucket of these would benefit me more so than the little bottles. 60 tabs doesn't last long at all for me.
This product, would probably work best with regular exercise, as would all calming aids. I find no fault with it.
This is a very good product. It keeps dogs calm without sapping their energy. We've used this on our weim (very high energy dog with severe seperation anxiety issues) and it does the trick! Results aren't instant, so you have to stick with it (after about 2 weeks, we noticed progress). We'd tried several other things to help with her S.A (Thundershirt, etc.) and the biggest improvement we noticed in our pup was after administering these tablets to her. She still runs around like a normal dog and does not appear sluggish or sleepy all the time. It's a great calming agent without having to drug your dog.
Wish it came in a larger container (60 pills only lasts 15 days) or was under $10 per bottle.
Need to start ahead of time
I have a 30-31 pound female Sheltie that (without the pill) shakes and shivers whenever a thunderstorm approaches within 30 miles (as per weather radar). (Perhaps it is because we had the house struck once by lightning near where she and I were standing and which caught the house on fire.) As long as I start the pills 3-4 days ahead of forecast storms, they work great. She no longer shivers and shakes. She still is as playful as usual when no storms are near. Then when storms are approaching she will still go lie in her "thunderstorm corner," but no shivering.
I use 1/2 pill twice a day. If it is a bad storm season, I up the dosage to 1 pill twice a day every day. I split the pill before I put it into her food. I started having a bit of a problem with her not eating it halved, so started quartering the pill and putting the 2 or 4 quarters in her food per feeding twice per day, and have had no problems with her eating it since.
