We are moving into the festive howliday season, which fur many can mean guest & furmily are pawssibly arriving or knocks on the door from UPS dogliveries or pawsibley howliday carolers. This is probably not pawt of your good dog or cool cat’s routine. On top of that, your humans may seem more stressed than usual. Extra shopping, pawties to attend & pawparing the home for guests is a lot of work. We dogs are very sensitive to our human’s emotions.

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here to dogscuss managing howlidays stress . The howlidays can be stressful for us four leggers. In my case, living with canine idiopathic epilepsy, stress & excitement can trigger a seizure so it’s extra impawtant for my huMom to keep things calm around this time of year. For some good dogs & cats having company over is no big deal. But some, like myself can be reactive. For them I have a few wagnificent suggestions.

Pawpare a dim lit room or go to space for your good dog or cat with it’s favorite toys; pawhaps one of our Knotty Hemp Toys For Dogs or Cats  & some their favorite treats.  Calming music might help. If your dog/cat feels secure in a crate, move it away from the activity so your good dog can retreat there when it needs to.

Wearing a thundershirt can help some good dogs or cats. I have one that I wear when guests are coming over especially if they are staying for a few days.

Adaptil is a non-medical solution for helping dogs feel more relaxed & secure. It synthetically mimics the natural appeasing pheromones that mother dogs use to comfort & reassure their puppies. It comes in a spray or with a defuser you plug into the wall. There is one fur cats as well; it is Feliway

Another way to manage this stress is with extra play time or an longer walks which can burn off any anxiety or pent up energy we may have about all the unusual activity at home.

There are also natural approaches such as melatonin.  Melatonin is a hormone made by the pineal gland which is located in the brain of mammals. It stabilizes our circadian rhythm, which is our awake/sleep cycle. When released into the body, it’s saying, “time to close down for the night”.  CBD oil can also help your  good dog or cat feel calm.  We offer CBD Dog Health pawducts for both dogs & cats on our store Knotty Toys For Good Dogs.  We also offer Charlotte’s Web CBD for Dogs as well (for dogs only).

Omega Alpha has two formulations for coping with stress. E-Z Rest has a calming effect & pawmotes relaxation. EnduraStress helps the body cope with stress while also pawviding a calming effect. Either of these can be added to meals for a few days before a big day to help your good dog or cool cat.  Again we offer E-Z Rest & EnduraStress on our store Knotty Toys For Good Dogs.

The most impawtant thing is to consider your four legger’s needs when planning your festivities. It should be a happy time for everyone.

Do you have any tips for reducing holiday stress? Please bark out about it, we want to nose. Have a pawsome week, CEO Olivia, Dot & Jerry Underfoot💜
