Marron the Toy Poodle’s Dog Park Anxiety and NHV Matricalm Inspiring Pet Tails 3 min read
Like us, dogs can suffer from anxiety and fears. This can affect all breeds of dogs and can lead to serious behavioural problems if left untreated. Dogs may become fearful or have a strong emotional reaction to loud noises such as thunderstorms, fireworks, or garbage trucks. Some dogs fear being alone, and some show aggression towards other dogs. These reactions may happen while on a walk or at the dog park. Dog Park Anxiety is actually quite common.
Taking your dog for a walk on a regular basis is a necessity for exercise and taking them to the dog park is great for socializing. However it can be a challenge if they are reactive or aggressive. Marron, the Toy Poodle was showing aggression towards other dogs and also showed signs of separation anxiety. Her mom put her on NHV Matricalm and had this to say about it:
When my lovely fury baby meets a dog friend, she snarls at dogs. I guess she thinks some dogs are strangers. Also she doesn’t like dogs only likes humans. It’s been two days since I took her NHV Matricalm. Surprisingly my dog never barks and snarls at dogs. Despite some dogs barking at us, she seemed calm. I’m looking forward to seeing how much more effective it will be in the future. Because my dog has separation anxiety. I hope NHV helps her. Thanks!
Thank you!!!! NHV She is doing great these days!!! She wasn’t nervous in dog park!!! Thank you!!!”
Matricalm is formulated to do just that, keep pups calm in a potentially reactive situation! This supplement has herbs such as; Chamomile, Passion Flower and Valerian, to name a few. These herbs are effective, calming, non-addictive sedatives that help to reduce stress and anxiety. In sweet little Marron’s case she is able to go for walks and play at the dog park now with no issues. This is great for all parties involved!
If your pet is showing signs of extreme aggression, it is important to speak with your veterinarian to rule out any medical issues that might be causing your pet’s anxiety. Then, you can seek the guidance of a trained animal professional, who can guide you and your dog down the road to recovery.
We have two natural blends that can help with conditions like dog park anxiety. Matricalm suits both dogs and acts while Lesstress is formulated for dogs only. Matricalm helps reduce anxiety and stress, whereas Lesstress would be our recommendation for dogs facing traumatic situations or nervous anxiety. That said, both are formulated to help a pet stay calm and are safe for long term use. They can come handy with situations like travelling stress in dogs or cats, dog park anxiety, separation anxiety in pets, stress from moving to new houses.
NHV ‘s Pet Travel Essentials kit includes Matricalm, Target spray (natural anti tick and flea spray) and Heal Care Ointment (support for sore limbs and cracked paws, multi purpose soothing salve). For an active furkid, we would recommend keeping this kit handy!
For any questions, please reach out to your NHV Pet Experts. We are always here to help you and your furry companions!
