Has anyone ever heard of this product?
HAHAHAHA!!!!!!I had to do a google search on it...I'd never heard of it.
No experience with it, but I know of a few people I'd like to try this out on. I guess that's why they make Prozac.
Haven't used this one, but have used "Rescue Remedy" to help with a thunder-phobic dog. It helped some.Has anyone ever heard of this product?
The Calms Forte did seem to help with holding blind excitement and also helped to generally take the edge off an overly excited dog. It took a week or so to begin to make a difference with the dog in our group (as I recall).I would add that if you are going to try Calm Shen you need to try it for at least 6-8 weeks. It takes that long to work through their systems. They did tell me that some people saw a difference quickly, but some need the whole 8 weeks to notice a change.
I use rescue remedy as well. It helps before a test. My oldest girl will whine and actually shake with anticipation....to the point where she has been so excited she didnt focus as she needed to. A good airing the night before and a couple drops of the rescue remedy has not hurt anything and seem to take the edge off of the anxiousness enough to help where she and I both needed it to.
Please provide details. Why did you start giving this and what have you noticed since?First observation, GOOD STUFF!
Let me know if you want details.
Maybe this should be moved to product reviews.
I'd still like to know what YOUR experience is/was with this.
FWIW---There was a noticeable difference in anxiety.I'm going to give this stuff a shot and see what it will do. Our very talented yellowdog went absolutely ape feces on the middle bird of a water triple training set up and had to be physically moved to the enxt bird so he could see the mark. He was fine on the land set up in the morning and focused pretty well. The difference? The benadryl wore off. :roll:
I love the hell out of this dog. His drive is off the charts, and he has a wonderful personality. The dog is absolutely stone obedient, but he comes unglued at times. I need something to improve his focus.
Stan,FWIW---There was a noticeable difference in anxiety.
FOCUS seemed dramatically improved.
The external stuff seemed to vanish to him.
Absolutely NO loss of desire, attitude or athleticism.
I was almost in tears.
There are some people that are on this site that saw it last night.
Clearly an improvement at the line.
How long did you give the product before you noticed a difference in behavior?
