Afte going through the setup period we used this for about 3 weeks before it stopped working. First it wouldn't shut off, so we shut off the music but left it plugged in. Then the music would only play for about 30 seconds and shut off. Not sure if it worked or not for my dogs anxiety but was using in case it was helping. Disappointed with the cost to usable time ratio.
This thing worked great didn't make it a year looking for something else . For the price I thought it would last longer. My Sheba knew when we turned it on it was bed time.
For this being a German product, I expected the quality to be good... but after about 4 months, I started seeing issues with charging/charging port where it would only charge sometimes and if you fiddle with the cable enough. Now after half a year, the charger is completely broken making it unusable. For the price, I don't find this acceptable at all.
it has been a real game changer for my dog. It was night and day from the second we turned it on. He was messing inside and destroying everything possible when left alone. But if we put him in a crate he would bark the entire time which lead to a very in happy landlord. Since we started using this we have not seen any of his pervious bad behaviors. We use the non audio mode for when we are home and the audio mode for when we are not and at night. Highly recommend!
A client of mine had this for her large breed dog. Thought I would like to use while she was here for her monthly spa day. She told me I could keep it and use it if I thought it would help. I kept on all the time while having groomers and boarders. It has helped many dogs and then some it has not. But over all I am please with it. It has worked itself to death as of thus morning and I am buying another one very soon!!!
I've tried everything for my hyper-anxious rescue (and we've had her for some 10 years). This goes on the list of "tries and fails." Since starting to use the machine 10 days ago (exactly as directed by the full-length manual on the mfg. website), she has gotten more jumpy, more anxious, more frantic. This goes back tomorrow.
I'm not sure what to say about this device. I recently adopted a small dog who appears to have been kept confined for all of his six years. He has never been socialized and is very anxious, so there are huge trust issues. We use the Relaxopet four hours a day, and he is clearly more relaxed when it is on, but still hyper-alert. We're working with a trainer, and he's improving slowly, but this hasn't been a magic wand for us, as some others have said it was for them. (I have to add, I am not fond of rigid formats such as this one, so may never write another review, much as I love Chewy.)
The timer option doesn’t seem to work at all. The “quick start” guide they send doesn’t tell you how to use all of the settings (like having the timer turned on before starting the device, still doesn’t work though). I know it’s creating the “deep relaxation” noise but it doesn’t seem to have any effect on my dogs. A lot of money for something that doesn’t work right and isn’t effective.
Our elderly Boston Terrier is terrified of storms and fireworks. We were giving him Sileo Gel (from the vet) which works quite well, but I have not needed that since using RelaxoPet - white noise and music frequency that calms dogs. Now our dog has a routine when thunder is on its way - he gets in his bed in the master bedroom and we turn on his muzac. He quickly calms and naps. I was shocked that this worked - but it absolutely does. It took our dog about three times before he instantly calms down.
One of my pups has anxiety when it comes to fireworks and thunderstorms. I have tried many products, and I can say by far this one works. My husband was skeptical, but right now we are in the middle of a storm, and she is chilling, like it's nothing is wrong. No panting, pacing, jumping, etc; just a very calm pup. Husband is shocked by how well she is doing. We have tried this a few times, with the same results. Give it a try and stay positive with your pup when the unit is running.
