Sometimes us pups get a bit bent outta shape! Them ole thunderstorms roll in or we have to go see the lady in the white coat can make us get all jittery in nerves! And, should I mention fireworks?! Even I quiver and shake! Not quite sure why them humanz think they gotta blow things up, but them noises make us pups on the crazy side! Well, durin’ these times, my Lady has a Calming Spray for Dogs that she uses! She puts it on our bandanas and sprays our beds with it. Now, I’m not to spiffy on this and I ain’t even gonna claim to know how it works, but it sure makes me feel better! I’ll go get my Lady to tell ya ’bout it and how to make some for your pup! Here’s my Lady…
Poor Miss Molly! Truth be known, all my pups get super anxious with loud noises and when they have to see the vet! However, I don’t like giving them medication and look for natural solutions. I love essential oils and finally landed on this great Calming Spray for Dogs using essential oils for pets. It is safe for dogs, but remember to only apply to the bandana and their bedding – do not apply directly on your pet! Check it out below!
Calming Spray for Dogs

4 oz distilled water

Each oil has calming properties and combined will hopefully help their nervousness.
Combine all ingredients in spray bottle. Shake until mixed well, and before each use.
Put a few sprays on a bandanna and tie loosely around the neck.
