ya gotta try it when there's a thunderstorm or whatever makes her anxious, and see if her behavior's different.
Yes, noises, people, dogs, air... all make her bark and howl. She would crawl under my skin if she could. She seemed to loosen up as the night went on last night so, like I said, it'll probably just take some getting used to. I want to leave it on her all the time for a week or two and then take it off for a couple of days and see how she does.trying to recall.. doesn't Maggie get anxious around other people and dogs she doesn't know? and maybe storms? that's what to measure the intervention with, not if she's happy with it (ie. my dog may not like his pill or antibiotic, but it helps him with his infection...). it just has to help her with her anxiety and nervousness, that's the measure of whether it's working.
