Did you know that 1 in 7 dogs are affected by separation anxiety? This is anxiety where a dog may exhibit behavior problems when they can’t be with their owners. Common symptoms might include excessive barking, attempts to escape their environment, destructiveness, or potty accidents, just to name a few. Sometimes these symptoms can mimic other issues such as a medical condition or common puppy behaviors. If you want to know if your dog has separation anxiety, you can take the quiz at Calmerk9.com.
One of the big downsides of anxiety in dogs is that anxiety is one of the top two reasons dogs are given up for adoption or re-homed. In response to this need and the fact that 13 million dogs in the United States are affected by anxiety, Assissi Animal Health, along with Dr. Judy Korman, have developed the Calmer Canine.
Calmer Canine is a patented, highly effective solution that is available without a prescription. Just two fifteen–minute treatments for 4-6 weeks can result in a calmer, happier dog. Calmer Canine works on the part of the brain that produces anxiety. Yet, there are no side effects and the results are long lasting.
Here’s what you need to know about the science. The amygdala is the area in the brain responsible for producing fear and emotional responses. You can think of it as the flight or fight center where overactive brain cells can produce harmful substances causing inflammation and cell death. An anxious brain is a brain out of balance. Using a specifically tuned microcurrent signal, the Calmer Canine device reaches the core of the problem and stimulates your dog’s natural ability to restore emotional balance.

In addition to separation anxiety, dogs can experience other types of anxiety, including travel anxiety, stranger anxiety, noise/thunder anxiety, society anxiety and other canine obsessive-compulsive disorders. Dogs can also just have general anxiety where they are stressed, frightened and unhappy most of the time. If your dog suffers from symptoms of anxiety, there are a number of possible solutions. Calmer Canine offers a drug-free, long lasting solution that doesn’t require a prescription. Other treatments might include behavior modification training, compression or anxiety vests, pheromones or pharmaceuticals.
As the owner of seven dogs, my dogs come in all shapes, sizes, varieties and have or have had various anxieties. This would have been a lifesaver for me; especially for Leiden, my Papillon who was terrified of thunderstorms and fireworks. Living in Florida, we couldn’t avoid the thunderstorms each day over the summer. The Fourth of July and New Year’s Eve meant we had to stay home with her in order to provide her with comfort and emotional support. We tried everything from drugs to compression vests and nothing had a lasting effect. Today, I have a dog that exhibits travel anxiety whenever she has to go somewhere in the car. She loves to be at the office so that means she has to ride in the car every day. When it’s time to go to work or get ready to go home, she begins to tremble. She looks visibly distressed. Once in the car, she pants and drools. We are looking forward to using the Calmer Canine to alleviate her anxiety and have a happier, calmer dog.
