Thanks! I’m going to my sister’s house later for a family cookout. Hopefully people will be respectful this year regarding fireworks.

Happy 4th of July everyone.  Thanks Clare and Meg for the Independence day wishes.   You look so beautiful in your red, white and blue Meg.  <3 .

  Chief has been my first dog to ever be kinda afraid of fireworks.  So I had gotten some CBD chews for his obedience class when we had some pretty yappy Shepherds (3 of them barking at each other) which made Chief drool.  (No offense intended by that comment)   So gave him 2 last night and put him in my room with fans (multiple) on and he slept.  I heard them but he didn’t even move.  No there is no THC in these and with his weight he could have that number.    Tonight will be the real test.  We will be out and back in before dusk and relaxing.

Whaaa? How is that even possible? 😉

Well how did the 4th turn out? Did the treats do their thing? Hope you had a hoppy 4th too!

They did their thing.  He only growled once and that was when a whole bunch went off at one time like a finale from some neighbor or something.  Otherwise he laid down with the fans on and and relaxed.   He did get 2 at about 6:30 and then another about 4 1/2 -5 hours later.  well within his dosage.

I like it because it really doesn’t sedate them it just relaxes them so they aren’t so stressed 🙂

Yep, unlike something like Trazadone, Ace or Xanax does. There’s nothing sadder than seeing a doggie all wonky on sedatives!
