These calming stix do clean the teeth. Additionally, Goliath our Mastiff/Border Collie mix has the energy of the border collie who is always in work mode and the size of the Mastiff so it is sometimes hard to get him to calm down. One stick does the trick in about 40 minutes. Sometimes the melatonin content is too much for him and the next morning he is very 'hung-over.'
I have a 13 year old black lab mix. He has had bad hips most of his life, so he definitely has mobility issues. He's going deaf and he has tumors popping up everywhere. At this age, I'm not about to put him through surgery. I don't see any signs of him suffering in any way, so I'm giving him the best life until... I say ALL that because I'm not sure what has started this fear that has developed in his senior years, but he is suddenly terrified of thunder and fireworks. He works himself into a frenzy, which is not like him at all. He gets so worked up that it can get scary at times. I tend to think it's the hearing loss, but I could be wrong. I've tried a few different things, but these and the regular heart-shaped ones are all that have worked. If I wait until he's in full anxiety attack mode, then he won't eat anything, but if I can get him to eat one or two early enough, they stop him from getting to that point. I only use it when needed - not every day. Rarely do I give him a "full dose," which would be 3 of the regular treats. The regular ones are 1 treat for 0-25 pounds, and my baby is 80ish pounds. One will chill him out, but 2 will really calm him down. 3 will help him simply sleep through it all. BTW I've seen this dog, who is an absolute chow hound, wolf down his entire bowl of food, yet leave pills in the bottom untouched. I've tried pills inside of treats and everything, and he has spit the pill right back out. However, he seems to genuinely like these. I didn't think he would like the mint, but he loves dental bones, and these are close to the same. I've also tried the heart-shaped treats in bison and chicken, and he's eaten them all. I've seen other people saying if you have picky dog to not bother, but I just wanted to say you could be surprised. I was. I didn't like prescription type calming things I've tried because he turned into a zombie, which scared me badly. I also tried expensive CBD oil that showed no change in him. I was also trying to help his mobility with that, but nothing. I tried a knock-off thundershirt (just to test), but that didn't work either. I'm debating trying the senior treats for calming and cognitive, but I would think the cognitive part would only work if he took it every day. I don't know if I want to start that. Anyway, he's still pretty sharp - just can't hear.
I have a four-month-old border collie who is overly excited. I took her to training classes, but she couldn't control herself yet. I was recommended to try this product. This really helps my dog. She became a little gentler, haha.
All she got was fresh breath. The puppy (8 month old Black German Shepherd) actually started bouncing off the furniture like a ball in a pinball machine!! She also scratched like crazy all night. I have an 8 year old dog who ate them and did just fine. I didn't notice any change really except that her breath was nice.
I give these to my dog when there is lightning, fireworks or construction work. It seems to help take the edge of his anxiety down. He still whimpers some, but doesn't panic anymore. Usually I brake them in half.
Mupfi our Terrier mix is super hyper and since he had 2 surgeries and yet another torn ligament he had to stop following me all day long because he also is deaf. So the Zesty Hemp bone is a treat unlike all the soft dry bites which he refuses to eat. George is a Hound-Schnauzer and as lazy as Mupfi is hyper. I give him half of a Hemp bone max because he has anxiety problems; if I gave more he won’t get up all day long.
My puppy and my daughter two dogs love these calming treats! Helps relax them a little.
I was looking for something to help my sleep at night, as he's become more restless and gets up more at night as he's gotten older. He's a 9 y/o black lab mix. I saw this product had relatively good reviews and most of the negative ones seemed to just indicate that they were not effective. However, after 2 days of giving them to my dog and him getting really sick, I came back and filtered the reviews better and saw a bunch of other reviews saying their dogs became ill as well. Please reconsider giving this product to your dog!
My dog LOVES these (but she's not picky). So far we have given her half of the recommended amount and she seems to be more calm, more willing to cuddle for a few hours. It's not really a daily answer to anxiety/reactivity but helpful on an as-needed basis. I think what works for each dog is very individual...heavy prescription sedatives did nothing for my dog but I did notice a difference with this!
