Calming Methods

Help your dog feel at ease

Many blind and deaf dogs can be very nervous of their new surroundings, but also many can be very energetic and high-strung. This is why calming methods are great to relax your dog and make them more at ease and comfortable. Also, great for a very energetic puppy!

- Rescue Remedy is a natural way to make your dog feel more relaxed
- "T" Touch/Massages are great ways to really relax your dog if they are feeling nervous or agitated (basically what "T" Touch is, is rubbing your dogs body is counter clockwise circles, but there are always other types of relaxing massages too. Just search online for "T" Touch for dogs.)
- While you are away, your dog may feel unsecure, you could try putting your dog in a crate, which works well with some dogs as it makes them feel safe, others it may not work.
- A special blanket or bed always makes Youwho feel at ease because he feels safe.
