News and Information about Dogs, Cats, and Pet Products

Is your dog a nervous wreck this time of year? Does the weather report have you trapped? Do you hesitate to invite people over because your dog is too anxious? Do you hesitate to take your dog out because of the same reason? If so, this post is for you!

We have several amazing products that I’d like to introduce you to today to help calm anxious dogs.

The first is the Thundershirt.

This amazing little shirt looks like a regular dog jacket, doesn’t it? Well, I can tell you it is not. It is like a hug for your dog, only, you don’t have to be hugging your dog the entire time…let the shirt do the work for you! It works by applying very gentle pressure on some of the pressure points on your dog’s trunk. It is very easy to use, simply fit the shirt around your dog’s trunk and Velcro it closed. Over 85% of our customers have seen marked improvement with the use of this shirt. Plus, there is a money-back guarantee. So you can try this out on your dog worry free! It comes in grey and pink…just because your dog is nervous, doesn’t mean he or she can’t be fashionable ūüôā

Happy Traveler is a great option for a quick chill pill. Think of it like taking an aspirin for a head ache.



The active ingredients in Happy Traveler include Valerian, German Chamomile, L-Tryptophan and St. Johns Wort, all well known herbs for their calming effects. It comes in pill form or chews and is a safe, non-toxic option for your dog. You should see results in about 45 minutes.

The last product I’m going to show you today is Rescue Remedy.

Bach is a trusted name in natural remedies and this is a new variation of the original stress relieving remedy that has been available for more than 70 years. It contains a blend of the same five flower remedies found in Rescue Remedy, Impatiens, Clematis, Star of Bethlehem, Cherry Plum, and Rock Rose¬†in an alcohol free formula, ideal for sensitive pets.¬†The dropper allows you to¬†easily administer¬†it to your pet. This is suitable for use on pets of all shapes and sizes, including: Reptiles, Fish (just add to tank water), Birds, Cats, Dogs, Horses, and Rabbits. For best results, simply place four drops into your pets mouth. If you can’t do that, you can add the drops to food, water or treats or rub them into your¬†pets nose, paws or ears.

Please stop by one of our stores to talk to a team member about which of these awesome products would work the best for your pet’s anxiety.

We are flying our 16# dog from AZ to IL in a few weeks, under seat in a very snug carry on bag that is airline approved. Last time he flew he started panting heavily, obviously stressed about being confined so long. Which of these products do you recommend? I don’t think the thundershirt is an option since it will add bulk and warmth which neither are desirable in this situation.

Hi Rose,

The Happy Traveler pills will be your best bet! You can also use the Rescue Remedy if you need a boost.

Good luck!

Have a dog with sever separation anxiety. Need to leave him in the crate but when I do he pees and poos all over himself. Will Rescue Remedy help?

Hi Molly,
Yes, it should help him calm down while you are gone. You might want to try it first with him out of the cage and then put him in the cage and see if it helps. You could also try using a Thundershirt with it too. I use the Thundershirt on my dog not only for storms, but for her itching and when we have a lot of company over, she get really nervous and it really does wonders for her. It is supposed to help with separation anxiety too. Good luck!!
