Works great along side training and other interventions!
on 5 April 2016
Worked a treat to take the edge off my very nervous lurcher. Obviously it isn't a miracle worker, all his problems won't magically vanish upon taking this. It does however get him to a slightly calmer state where i can work with him.It doesn't smell fabulously tasty and they wont touch it in their water or on dry food. Instead 20 mins or so before i need it to take effect I put it on some bread, ham, in some peanut butter, sandwich paste, on a sausage or some other 'forbidden' food and they yam it down completely unaware.
It takes the edge off enough for my other interventions to really get full effect. Other dogs terrify him to the point where he is too scared to take the treats off me or focus on anything other than his fears. This product takes him down to a level where, although he is still scared, i can distract him with tasty food and have him sit for a treat while a dog passes us by. Previously he would be too upset to bother with the kong, treat ball or other distractions when i went out and just destroyed things or howled. This product just takes the edge off enough for him to get into the kong + treat ball which distracts him from his anxiety.
In short, don't expect it to solve all problems on its own and it can't replace actual training. It will however take the edge off enough for you to work with the dog in a calmer state where success is far more likely.
