Does your dog hate fireworks or thunderstorms? If so, you have probably tried a variety of things to help alleviate their stress. My Basset Hound Bentley suffers from a fear of thunderstorms. He hears rumbling 30 minutes before the first clap of thunder reaches my ears. It doesn’t matter if the storm hits in the middle of the day or night when the sky starts talking, he wants his mom and dad to be with him. I can’t tell you how many nights we have sat up to reassure him that he will survive the racket.
When we know a storm is coming, I add Relax to his meal and the difference is incredible. However, we still need to keep his mind occupied until the thunder stops. That is where our new PetSafe® Calming Toys come to the rescue. Toys that dispense treats and that require problem-solving help to distract Bentley and he loves them. Our Busy Buddy® Calming Toys came with two chamomile scented toys that he was instantly attracted to. The moment I opened the box, his nose went to work.
Both the Barnacle and Squirrel Dude™ have chambers where you can add treats. The Treat Meter® prongs can be trimmed with scissors to allow the treats to come out easier and faster. Just remember that once you cut the prongs, you can’t put them back so make sure to only trim a tiny amount each time.
Pierre has absolutely no fear of noises or things that go bump in the night. That being said, there are certain times when he needs a distraction. Mostly during “squirrel:thirty” each evening. His new Squirrel Dude with some high-value treats can keep us from letting him outdoors to chase real squirrels every five minutes!
PetSafe Calming Toys work great to keep your dog’s attention and divert it from the things that are causing them anxiety. You can put some dog-friendly peanut butter in the chambers and stick them in the freezer for a bit. When you take them out, you can watch your best friend forget everything other than getting the peanut butter out of their toy. Don’t worry about these toys getting dirty because they are top-rack dishwasher safe.
We have the medium size toys for dogs 20-50 pounds but they are also available for smaller 10-20 pound pups. You can fetch Calming Toys from PetSafe for under $20.
