Dogs can be very sensitive souls. We like to think that they have an easy, stress free life; but for many our lifestyle and their environment can just be too much for them resulting in high levels of anxiety. Dogs like to have routine, consistency and the known; changes can be difficult to deal with; be it on a daily basis, or even from the likes of how our lives (and theirs) have adapted as a result of COVID.
- Separation anxiety, the fear and worry of why you have gone away and will you be coming back
- Reactivity to sounds such as fireworks, thunder & lightening or simply the neighbour walking past or a car driving by
- Social anxiety, resulting in reactivity and aggression towards other people or other dogs
- High energy, hyper dogs that cannot settle well or easily
- Fear of travel, new environments; trips to groomers, vet visits or kennel stays
- Anxiety from household changes, moving house, new family members and changes in the pack (including a death in the family)
- Rescue dogs who have come from abusive backgrounds, who need healing not just physically but emotionally and spiritually
Anxiety is a very common problem in dogs and can be very upsetting and destructive in many ways if they are not supported adequately.

Skullcap: One of the most effective nervine herbs, used for chronic cases of nervous tension, anxiety and over excitability – once widely known as “mad dog weed”! It can also help to relieve pain from nerve related injury. It does not bring about drowsiness, or dull the reflexes; but acts to moderate responsiveness to stimuli to alleviate restlessness.
Ahswagandha: An adaptogenic herb that has a relaxing and calming effect. A great muscle relaxant. Reduces inflammation and is a powerful anti-oxidant. Regulates the immune system. Has hematopoietic properties (positive effect on blood cells).
Chamomile: A versatile yet powerful soothing & healing herb. It can also support the digestive system, strengthen muscle tissues and reduces inflammation. Has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
Oat Tops: Helps the nervous system recover after exposure to stress, and furthermore it inhibits the enzyme PDE4 which results in reduced stress and anxiety, and even depression.
Valerian: Inhibits the breakdown of GABA in the brain resulting in feelings of tranquillity and calmness. It contains hesperidin and linarin which have a sedative action. It helps regulate excessive activity in the fear centre of the brain and reduces strong stress reactions.
Passionflower boots the level of GABA in the brain which in turn lowers the brain activity making your dog more relaxed, calmer and sleep better.
