My dog Bandit absolutely loves these treats! Something that i have noticed is that he seems to get a huge burst of energy for like 15 minutes and then he calms down, soooo i have learned that he cant have them right when we go to leave or are in a high anxiety moment, have to preplan a bunch.
my puppy is usually a little heathen, she plays and bites aggressively, barks like crazy and is impossible to tame. i started with only giving her half of one, it takes a little bit of time but she calms down after about 30 minutes or so. the only thing that i noticed was they gave her a little bit of diarrhea. not a lot, just a tiny little bit and then she was fine, not barking, just calmly following me around until she eventually went to sleep. i think i’ll stick to giving her half of one to see if it eventually goes away. these will be great for car rides, when i have to put her in her crate and leave for work, and for when she’s over excited and starts getting aggressive.
At first I was a little skeptical of the flavor, but after a quick sniff and try she loves them! I give her 3 because she’s on the bigger side, but being a nervous pup these have noticeably helped. I’ve been giving them to her for a few days now, I wanted to wait to see if they worked before reviewing them after the initial tasting. My pup who loves to pace and suck on things (compulsive anxiety behaviors!) was calmed by these. She has to have all 3 for it to be noticeable, though. I think they would also do good if inter-grained into a daily diet as some of the herbs are used on humans too and prove to be more effective for long term use. I definitely recommend these!
Who doesn't love a calm puppy?? These work great for car rides, new environments and especially bedtime. The calming product line is my absolute favorite.
Zesty Paws Puppy Calming Bites ($21.99) are supplements that aid in calming dog your new puppy (or small breed) from adjusting to their new lives. From scary thunderstorms to fireworks--these soft chews work to keep puppy calm by using ingredients such as Suntheanine (an advanced form of L-Theanine) along with premium Sensoril Ashwagandha. These ingredients alone are ideal for relaxation. Aside from that; Chamomile, Valerian Root, and L-Tryptophan bring in an extra soothing boost. I usually love to use a calming product when I'm gone for too long, so I can be sure my babies are going to be ok while I'm away. I have a new puppy who is quite uptight & full of anxiety, these have been god-sent in keeping her relaxed especially during hectic events/situations. I'm definitely going to stock up on these for next year, holidays get pretty rowdy around here, so these will come in handy.
Did not work at all. It seemed my pups separation anxiety worsened with these. Check out the carpet picture. It speaks for itself.
So when my puppy gets these, shortly after he has a sudden case of the "zoomies". He runs around, growls with glee, and overall becomes impossible to tame. After a while, he mellows out and lays down.
There have been some crazy storms here lately that have just scared my poor puppy. I asked some fellow dog owners and was given this as a suggestion. I gave my puppy a chew as soon as I saw the sky turn that dreadful dark. Usually when a storm is brewing, he starts running around the house. Then when the rain starts, he starts barking. The day I gave him the chew, I got none of that. He was just fine. In fact, he went to sleep. I had to check to make sure he was still breathing but he was fine. These really work!
We have tried everything for our pups separation anxiety and fear of thunderstorms. Absolutely nothing has worked until now. She is so unbelievably calm during storms and we can finally leave our home without coming back to it having it been destroyed.
These calming bites are perfect for anxious/nervous dogs. I got my girl during covid, so when I started going back to work, she started showing signs of separation anxiety and she now doesn't like thunder storms/fireworks/loud noises. So when I leave the house, I put these puppy bite soft chews in her treat toy - she gets the entertainment/enjoyment of playing while I'm gone and then the nice, calming effects kick in! I'm so happy to have found this!
