Calm Sweet Puppy, Be Calm


Now you all know I got my Dexter recently.. I admit now it was not that well planned and I was led by my broken heart. No I am not giving him back but had I planned to have to train and puppy whilst my husband was absent for nearly a month and I had to solo parent the kids and run the business I may have waited a tad longer to save my sanity!

He is a staffy x border collie and has been a dream to train (most likely due to the collie side) but as with most things it can't all be  abed of roses and the little chap has massive separation anxiety (a staffy trait). I read a few places that people use rescue remedy so I decided to contact one of our DTLL stores that makes homeopathic remedies to get hem to create a bespoke one for me.

As often happens to me, it was meant to be as they had just released a range especially for the fur kids called happy tails so two days later it arrived and I have been using it for over a week.. he genuinely seems less anxious. He doesn't want us to leave him at home yet but he is happy to chill in one room when we leave for another and he is ok if I pop into a shop whilst out travelling (he used to wail for as long as I was gone non stop) so I am now looking forward to extending those periods at home and having him far less under my feet with every move.

I know so many people with dogs that suffer the same and so I felt I just had to write a post about it to share.. the drops will clearly last a long time as I am 10 days in and mine hardly looks touched despite using the stated dose in his water daily without fail.


They have one for specific fears and one for generally nervous dogs and at $25 I was over the moon given we started by trying an $80 adaptil thing from the vet which mad no difference at all..

I use their remedies for myself throughout the year so Thank you to the lovely Kinkit Girls.. it seems you have my whole family sorted....

Does your dog have fears? My dog when I was a kids used to climb in a cupboard if fireworks started!

  3. Our staffie kelpie used to be like a shadow…we couldn't leave her!
    She still likes to be close to us…or at least know where we are…but at age five she has mellowed considerably.
    I am going to check out those drops though because she get so anxious when it is windy…I think she must hear every little whistle!
