How Tierliebhaber Chillout Sticks works
Tierliebhaber Chillout Sticks are 100% natural and ensures that your dog calms down quickly in stressful situations and is no longer afraid. As this product only uses herbal ingredients such as valerian root and St. John’s wort, the sticks have a particularly gentle effect without making your dog lethargic.
The 100% natural Chillout formula contains a purely herbal complex of active ingredients from proven natural alternatives such as valerian root, sleeping berry and St. John’s wort. This formulation helps your dog to process the stress stimulus better and enables them to calm down much faster – without becoming drowsy, as is the case with chemical sedatives.
Valerian for your dog and for your quiet night
Have you already had to deal with sleepless nights yourself? In order to fall asleep faster and benefit from a deep sleep, valerian is not only suitable for humans as an ideal sedative. The root of valerian has a calming and sleep-promoting effect in dogs. Preparations with valerian, such as chillout sticks, support four-legged friends in tense situations. Through the valerian extracts, they act against nervousness, increased irritability, insomnia, tension and restlessness. Valerian is a perfect sedative for dogs.
St. John’s wort – naturally relaxed
Like valerian, St. John’s wort is a natural means of calming down for dogs. The plant has two positive effects on the psyche of your favorite: On the one hand, St. John’s wort acts as a medicine against depressive conditions in four-legged friends, on the other hand, it is balancing and soothing. That sounds almost too good to be true? But that’s exactly what it is. The plant allows the treatment of anxiety and stress in dogs without chemical medicines. It has a mood-enhancing, calming, antispasmodic, pain-quenating and strengthening effect.
The most common signs that your dog is stressed:
Pacing or shaking. You have seen your dog shake after a bath or a roll in the grass. That whole body shake can be amusing and is quite normal…unless it is occurring as the result of a stressful situation. For example, dogs are commonly stressed when visiting the veterinarian. Many dogs “shake it off” when they descend from the exam table and touch down on the ground. Dogs, like people, also pace when agitated. Some dogs walk a repeated path around the exam room while waiting for the veterinarian to come in.
Whining or barking. Vocalization is normal self-expression in dogs but may be intensified when they are under stress. Dogs that are afraid or tense may whine or bark to get your attention, or to self soothe.
Yawning, drooling, and licking. Dogs yawn when they are tired or bored, they also yawn when stressed. A stressful yawn is more prolonged and intense than a sleepy yawn. Dogs may also drool and lick excessively when nervous.
Changes in eyes and ears. Stressed dogs, like stressed people, may have dilated pupils and blink rapidly. They may open their eyes really wide and show more sclera (white) than usual, giving them a startled appearance. Ears that are usually relaxed or alert are pinned back against the head.
Changes in body posture. Dogs normally bear even weight on all four legs. If a healthy dog with no orthopedic problems shifts his weight to his rear legs or cowers, he may be exhibiting stress. When scared, dogs may also tuck their tails or become quite rigid.
Shedding. Show dogs that become nervous in the show ring often “blow their coat”. Dogs also shed a lot when in the veterinary clinic. Although less noticeable in outside settings, such as visiting a new dog park, shedding increases when a dog is anxious.
Panting. Dogs pant when hot, excited, or stressed. If your dog is panting even though he has not exercised, he may be experiencing stress.
Changes in bodily functions. Like people, nervous dogs can feel a sudden urge to go to the bathroom. When your dog urinates shortly after meeting a new canine friend, he may be marking territory and reacting to the strain simultaneously. Refusal of food and loss of bowel function are also stress indicators.
Avoidance or displacement behavior. When faced with an unwelcome situation, dogs may “escape” by focusing on something else. They may sniff the ground, lick their genitals, or simply turn away. Ignoring someone may not be polite, but it is surely better than being aggressive. If your dog avoids interaction with other dogs or people, do not force the issue. Respect his choice.
Hiding or escape behavior. An extension of avoidance, some tense dogs literally move behind their owners to hide. They may even nudge their owners to prompt them to move along. As a means of escape, they may engage in diversion activities such as digging or circling or may slink behind a tree or parked car.
