Tips for tackling the sounds of summer Family sitting on grass with dog watching fireworks

There’s no doubt that many people struggle with various levels of anxiety, but humans aren’t the only ones. So can their pets. Trembling, excessive panting, and hiding are just a few of the ways it can manifest in dogs. Whether it’s the noises of summertime celebrations and storms, separation anxiety, or even boredom causing the stress, there are soothing steps you can take to help bring a calming sense of peace back to your pet and your home.

Some people love a good summer storm, but many dogs – big and small – are set on edge by the booming sounds of thunder and the crashes of lightning. Similarly, fireworks are well-known to cause stress to our canine companions. It could related to the unpredictability, the air pressure changes, or simply the fact that dogs have a heightened sense of hearing compared to humans. Regardless, if you’ve ever had a pet cower by your legs or under a table due to noise, you know how stressful it can be for them.

Calming clothing like ThunderShirt anxiety jackets apply a constant, mild pressure around a pet’s torso – not unlike swaddling a baby – and are vet-recommended to help reduce anxiety caused by noise, travel, and more. They’re available in various sizes and colors and can be a great way to relieve some of the stress your dog or cat may feel during noisy, unpredictable summers.

It’s no secret that products containing CBD – or cannabidiol – have gained popularity in recent years. Many people report various benefits, including relief from anxiety. That popular sentiment has carried over to the pet industry since dogs also have endocannabinoid receptors located in their nervous system and may receive some of the same benefits as humans. Evidence from dog owners suggests that the hemp-derived compound may have an anti-anxiety impact that can help calm struggling pets. Many pet treats and supplements on the market combine full-spectrum hemp oil with other natural ingredients to create an easy and tasty way to administer naturally occurring CBD to your pet. With the potential added benefits of reduced inflammation, improved sleep, and anti-nausea effects, CBD may be a helpful choice for your pet.

As an alternative to CBD, products containing many other natural supplements can help to set your pet at ease. Valerian, melatonin, L-Theanine, and bioactive proteins are just some of the natural ingredients you can find in the non-CBD calming products we carry. It’s important both to give your pet the appropriate dosage based on their weight and to check with your vet if you have any questions or concerns.

Play Ball
Idleness is a breeding ground for anxious thoughts. Sometimes the best way to help ease your pet’s mind and let off some steam is to get out and play! Exercise can be a great bonding time and a way to simply tire out your pet to help them relax and get in a good ol’ nap afterwards. Anxiety can be caused by an excess of energy, too, so burning that off by throwing a ball or disc with your dog or whipping out a feather teaser or laser pointer with your cat can certainly help. Just like in humans, exercise produces endorphins to help relieve stress in our furry friends. And the instinctual behaviors that are triggered during play can help them feel confident.

What about when you don’t have the time, energy, or even nice weather to get out and play? With treat-based puzzles and other interactive toys to keep them focused and entertained, there is no shortage of options to find the right toy to bring your pet out of the cage of anxiety.

While there are many stressors that can lead to restlessness and anxiety in your pet, there are plenty of simple steps you can take to gain back their peace and help keep your beloved dog or cat in a relaxed and calm state of mind. Let us help provide the tools you need today!
