Calming Sprays and Diffusers for Dogs

Even the most loyal dogs can experience anxiety or stress now and again. It could be the result of their keen hearing picking up rumbling thunder. Maybe they get scared when you have to leave the house. Or perhaps they get anxious when they lose their favorite plush toy and don’t have it to chew on anymore. Canines can often become stressed when facing new or unfamiliar situations. Although you can try to train the behavior out of them, calming sprays for dogs can also be a solution. You take care of their health and wellness the best you can with regular vet visits and vitamins, so finding a natural solution to your pup’s stress and anxiety can be at the front of your mind.

FAQs About Calming Sprays and Diffusers for Dogs

Yes, there are many different brands of dog calming spray available at Petco that can help decrease tension and anxiety in canines. Most calming solutions can be separated into two distinct categories—pheromone spray for dogs and calming diffuser blends for dogs.

Many dogs and their pet parents have benefited from the use of dog calming spray. Most sprays contain a synthetic dog appeasing pheromone that triggers a calming effect in your pet’s body. This pheromone is very similar to those created by pregnant canines to help remind your pup of their mother and instill a feeling of safety and security. This chemical has been shown to effectively help relieve stress in many canines.

With incredible smell receptors in their noses, canines can benefit significantly from calming diffuser blends for dogs. In particular, lavender oil and chamomile can help reduce stress and anxiety in your pet if diffused for about an hour a day. However, some oils can be dangerous for canines, including but not limited to:

  • Pennyroyal
  • Clove
  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Peppermint Oil
  • Wintergreen
  • Anise
  • Cinnamon
  • Juniper
  • Thyme

This is just a partial list, and other oils may or may not negatively affect your pup. Always consult your veterinarian before diffusing new oils around your pet.
