Takes the edge off
My four year old Saluki has been geared a bit higher since birth, as in very active/paces around, sensitive to noise, and he barks a lot at anything. I started him on SmartCanine™ Calming a few months ago and saw a much more relaxed dog within a week. This is especially important since I show him in conformation classes. I had to skip a month and quickly saw him regress. Thankfully he is back on it and life is good again. He won't eat the tablets on their on, so I like that they are easily crushable to mix in with his wet food.

My husband and I adopted Lucy from a Humane Society Shelter where she had been for 2 1/2 years. She was afraid of any noise (we live in a semi-urban area) and was too nervous to step off of our deck to potty. This meant lots of cleaning up inside.
I have tried calming tablets at local stores and didn't find them to work, but after only 2 days of these calming tablets Lucy has no problem with any noise except thunder. She confidently goes out into the yard, tail held high, bounding about and playing with the other dog regardless of who starts their cars, other dogs barking, etc. It's been an amazing difference and has allowed Lucy to enjoy this second puppyhood she has been going through since finding her forever family! She also loves the taste and considers them her morning treats. I was a little concerned that she might feel drugged, but Smart Calming is all natural and simply takes enough of the edge off of her nervousness for her to deal with things in a more confident manner. Thank you so much Smart Pak!!

Helpful aid w/separation anxiety
My 7 yr old dog (58 lb black n tan mix) has been on this for about 1 mth. He has severe separation anxiety after we sold a house and moved into an apartment. He doesn't tear things up; just barks and paces all day. With consistent behavorial modifications and reintroduction of his crate, the calming aid seems to be helpful. It isn't hurting him any, so we will continue to use as we transition and then perhaps ween him off. Each dog and their symptoms are different, so don't expect miracles to happen without behavorial training as well. The price of the product just went up by a few dollars (which is unfortunate), but the quality is good. I hope this review helps anyone with a dog with separation anxiety. I feel your frustration! :)

Seems to work well!
I bought this product for my 2 yr old Blue Heeler mix that I adopted 6 months ago. She is fear aggressive towards dogs, and always on edge when they get near her. She also has some separation anxiety. This product has helped her "chill out" more, bark less due to her SA, and gain more confidence towards other dogs while with the trainer. Great product at a great price!

Helped to settle my excitable dog!
I had a hard time getting my dog to eat the tablets so had to serve then with something tastey like beef broth. They seemed to help my dog who gets really excited and pees whenever we have visitors.

Surprised and very happy!
My MinPin/ Rat Terrier has separation anxiety. Over the years I have tried various techniques to help. The anxiety attacks would seem to go away and then return full force whenever there was some kind of change in his life. In October it got the worst it has even been in the 5 years of Jacob's life. He is a small dog but he was knocking over the TV, destroying the blinds, ripping up laminate, ripping up anything he could, and you could tell he was slobbering on the windows. It was heartbreaking to see. I put him on this supplement in early November. I honestly didn't expect to notice any results, I was hoping at best that he might feel a little more relaxed. It's been almost two months now, and he has only had 2 anxiety attacks where he used to have them nearly every day. Not to mention, these attacks were so mild you might not even notice anything had happened if you didn't know where to look. His energy level is the same, and he still acts like the same dog, except my house stays intact while I am gone. This supplement has made a big difference in both of our lives. It is a tad pricey compared to other calming supplements, but I consider it a great value because it WORKS!
