Training / Calming Aids


Sounds Desensitisation CD
Sounds Desensitisation CD
30 noises and sounds
Vet Approved.
Ideal for puppies and sound phobic dogs alike.
Easy to use.

A proven technique for the treatment and prevention (baby on the way or a new home location for example) of sound phobias in dogs. The CD contains 8 different sounds such as fireworks, gunfire, thunder plus numerous transport noises such as trains, aircraft, bushes and roadworks. Household noises such as lawn mower and vacuum cleaner. People noises such as children playing, crowds and babies crying.

* For best effect, I have found that the CD needs to be played on a decent sound system so as to replicate the noise as it was recorded. So a hi-fi system or home dvd player and tv sound is usually best.

Scullcap and Valerian
Scullcap and Valerian
This product is my ‘go to’ for the supporting of nervous anxious behaviours I see. A licensed herbal medicine for the symptomatic relief of anxiety, nervousness, excitability and travel sickness, and an adjunct in the treatment of epilepsy in dogs and cats. The ultimate herbal combination in a sugar-coated tablet, invaluable to calm and relax dogs and cats suffering from excitability, apprehension, phobias or hyperactivity. Widely used and particularly effective for those suffering from noise phobias as a result of fireworks, thunderstorms or gunfire. Does not cause drowsiness or impair normal behaviour or performance, making it suitable for those who just need to be settled for showing, travelling, training or obedience work.

Given before a journey this tablet will calm nervous travellers but is also ideal if new surroundings and situations cause apprehension or anxiety, making it a useful training aid for young dogs being introduced to the show ring as well as thunderstorms, fireworks, visits to the vet etc.
Scullcap & Valerian tablets are used in the control of epilepsy, often in conjunction with orthodox anti-convulsant drugs. Not recommended for pregnant or lactating females. Can safely be used along side DAP products and of course
behaviour modification.

Give 2 tablets per 5KG body weight per day for two weeks and then down to 1 tablet per 5KG body weight until the product has finished. I usually keep a dog on this product for 2-3 months as an initial course and then stop it to appraise the effect.

D.A.P. Diffuser
D.A.P. Diffuser
Dog Appeasing Pheromone can be the perfect solution to help ease an anxious dog under noise stress such as fireworks, or can help calm a new puppy with initial separation stress from the litter. The screw in bottle lasts 30 days with constant use, and designed to be placed in a room covering 50 to 70 square metres. For dogs that sleep in a variety of locations, the collar may be better suited; please see the DAP Collar for this. This product like other calming measures you see for sale here should not be seen as a solution in itself, and should be combined with behavioural modification specific to your dog and family.

What is D.A.P.? Developed for pet owners by veterinarians, D.A.P. (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) mimics the properties of the natural pheromones of the lactating female. Within three to five days after giving birth, the female generates pheromones that give their puppies a sense of well-being and reassurance, known as appeasing pheromones.
Now also known as Adaptil.

After approximately one month the DAP bottle will be empty, and you may see some stress signs reappearing. If so, this simple refill will screw into the plug-in diffuser giving you a further month of calm influence.

Canac Training Chew Spray
Canac Training Chew Spray
This spray has the strongest deterring odour and taste I have encountered. Perfect to prevent unwanted chewing on furniture, or even spray it on your hands and forearms prior to interacting with a mouthing puppy.

Ideal when used in combination with the
house training line. Spray the line and then place it on your puppy to control unruly behaviour in the home. The spray on the lead will deter mouthing and chewing.

Jet Care Training Collar
Jet Care Training Collar
In the right set of circumstances, this product can be an extremely effective method to interrupt unwanted behaviours such as serious lack of recall, certain types of aggressive behaviour, stealing from bins or worktops, or excessive barking in certain situations. The list is long and varied.

A 300-metre range outside, and I have found a good reception when used indoors. The unit is waterproof and rugged. Very high quality and made in America. Fully boxed, with clear instructions and all the accessories (waist bag included) making it ready to work out of the box.

Please note that whilst this is not an electric collar (it simply emits a short blast of compressed air under the chin), its use should be further to an assessment of the dog by me, or prior discussion with me. Like any product, it could be used in an inappropriate way- causing unnecessary stress to your dog. This spray collar should not be used with overtly nervous dogs for example, nor a dog that is not fit to sustain an interruption of this kind. I welcome
any contact to discuss your dog’s behaviour to explore the best solution for you and your dog.
