The following post is brought to you by Isle of Dogs. We’re very paw-ticular about our partners and only feature those we think are top dog.
The holidays can be a stressful time for two- and four-legged family members alike! Fortunately, helping your dog stay cool, calm, and collected is a bit easier thanks to Isle of Dogs’ anti-anxiety solutions. Read on to learn more about their Calming Collection as well as tips for helping your nervous pup through the festivities.
Safely calm your dog’s anxiety and support their digestive health with Isle of Dogs’ multi-functional, nutritional probiotic supplement. Flavorful fish oil makes this formula highly palatable. The no-mess pump allows for easy delivery and is an effective way to give your dog the benefit of valerian root, tryptophan and probiotics, to help calm your dog’s behavior and maintain overall digestive health. With a proprietary microencapsulation delivery system, Daily Fix supplements have higher absorption rates which allow dogs’ bodies to make faster and better use of these important nutrients.
Tip: Exercise! Make sure you allow time to give your dog plenty of exercise during this stressful season. An extra walk can go a long way in relieving anxiety — for both of you!
Isle of Dogs Calming Shampoo is a gentle shampoo that features natural lavender and lemon balm for a calming effect, to make bath time more pleasant for you and your dog. Can be used on all coat types for a thorough wash. Features a new signature fragrance lavender + lemon balm.
Tip: Aromatherapy is a great way to ease anxiety in pets. Try giving your dog a bath with some calming shampoo the day of or night before a big event.
Brush Spray featuring Isle of Dogs’ signature scent lavender + lemon balm. In order to prevent hair damage, it’s important to never brush a dry coat. Brush spray helps reduce shedding, static and maintains a silky, healthy coat that stays cleaner, longer. Blended with coconut oil to help improve overall skin and coat condition. Also features ExtenScent, a natural odor-neutralizing complex that extends freshness and keeps dogs smelling better, longer.
Tip: Physical contact can help relieve anxiety, fear, and stress. Take a moment to intentionally engage with your dog. A gentle, all-over brushing with a calming spray is a wonderful way to bond and get some one-on-one time with your nervous pup.
Isle of Dogs Chillout treats are designed to help calm and relieve the stresses in your dog’s life. A gourmet blend of vanilla, lemon balm, and lavender extract are carefully baked into each treat. Recommended for dogs with separation anxiety and tensions caused by changes in daily routines. Many customers report that Chillout treats work wonders during thunderstorms.
Tip: Your dog may benefit from some alone time. If they’re wound up from being over-stimulated, allow them to have some quiet time in a space they feel safe in. This is a perfect time to dole out the calming treats, too!
This softer, chewier Chillout treat is designed to help calm and relieve stress just like the original. Whether it be from fireworks, a bad thunderstorm, or separation anxiety, giving your dog Chillout treats on a regular basis helps take the edge off. The lavender, lemon balm, and vanilla in these healthy treats help to soothe your dog and put them at ease.
Tip: Breathe! Dogs are extremely perceptive and pick up on their human’s stress and anxiety. Reacting to your dog’s nervousness in a negative way is counterproductive. Take a moment to check in with your own state of mind and apply some of these calming tips for yourself.
