Our new dog Nellie has been with us for almost a month now.There’s been lots of trial and error on our part to determine what makes her comfortable and what causes problems. For example, Nellie likes being with someone at all times and hates being left alone. She also likes having a blanket or pillow to rest on, but doesn’t mind the carpet too much. (It’s the wood floors and tiling that she doesn’t like resting on.) She loves to run, will play ball on occasion, but isn’t into chewing toys. Nellie’s learned to be comfortable with the kids and my husband, but prefers hanging out with me, especially when she’s tired or overwhelmed.
It reminds me of when my kids where babies and I had to figure out what soothed them and how to avoid things that upset them. For example, my kids like variety and a change in routine as they get bored easily. However, many kids prefer the comfort of having an established routine. The same goes with pets. Some dogs and cats get stressed when there are changes in the daily routine or new people in the house. You may have experienced this during the past holiday season. Was your dog freaking out at the party you threw? Did your dog have an accident when grandma was visiting? Or maybe you traveled with your pet, and noticed they were stressed out from the new surroundings.
Changes in routine can cause pets to misbehave. However, using Comfort Zone® products could help. Comfort Zone® products help reduce stress-related behavior in dogs by mimicking their natural pheromones that help them feel calm and comfortable in their environment. They’re 95% effective at reducing scratching and also help reduce excessive chewing and barking.
Comfort Zone(R) with D.A.P.(R) (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) products helps control destructive digging, chewing and house soiling, too. It can also help manage stress-related behavior in dogs caused by thunderstorms, loud noises like fireworks, adjusting to a new environment, transitions, being left alone or traveling. If you have a new puppy, Comfort Zone® products can assist with nighttime whining during their transition from the shelter/breeder to a new home as well.
