[NEW PRODUCT] How to help your pet’s behavior

Behavioral problems are one of the main reasons pets are surrendered to shelters. For most pets, these behavioral issues usually stem from anxiety and fear. However, just because some pets might carry out unwanted behaviors, doesn’t mean they can’t leave those behind and learn appropriate behaviors with some patience, a little extra love and care, training and calming supplements like Solliquin.

Anxiety and fear are major factors that can cause inappropriate behaviors. For pets, there are many events that can scare or stress them out. For both dogs and cats, these common causes of anxiety and fear include:

  • Traveling
  • Loud noises (fireworks, thunderstorms & construction)
  • Being home alone (separation anxiety)
  • Moving
  • Kenneling/crating
  • Car rides
  • Getting old
  • New and unfamiliar people and animals

When pets are anxious or afraid of their surroundings, it’s likely they will react negatively and resort to inappropriate behaviors that they think might help the situation.  Any of the above causes of anxiety can instill a negative response from pets resulting in unwanted behaviors that can be harmful to your pet, your home or even yourself.  Common dog behavior issues that stem from fear or anxiety are:

  •  Aggression
  • Barking
  • Destructive chewing
  • Food guarding
  • Howling
  • Mounting
  • Nipping/biting
  • Separation anxiety
  • Whining

For cats, common behavior issues include:

  • Aggression
  • Destructive scratching
  • Litter box problems
  • Meowing/yowling
  • Urine marking

How to help calm your pet

Calming and behavior supplements like Solliquin can be a great tool in helping your pet calm down. However, it takes much more than supplements to improve your pet’s behavior and ease their anxieties. One of the best methods to maintain your pet’s happiness is keeping them well-exercised. Not only does exercise release the “happy” chemical in the brain it also reduces any pent up energy that can turn into anxiety.

Positive reinforcement training, meaning rewarding your pet for good behavior, will help them learn the difference between wanted and unwanted behaviors. Training your pet also increases the bond between you and your pet resulting in a trusting relationship.

Other natural remedies for pets is to keep them occupied with toys and chews, playing calming music, calming pheromones, and even a good, soothing massage.

Solliquin helps support normal behavior and relaxation

Containing all natural ingredients, like extracts of magnolia, phellodendron, theanine, and whey protein, Solliquin encourages feelings of calm and contentment. It also helps reduce any negative behaviors related to stressful and anxiety-inducing events.

Solliquin is perfect to give to pets during times of stress including traveling, meeting unfamiliar pets and people, and loud noises like thunderstorms and fireworks.

It is available in tasty soft chews for cats and small to medium dogs and available in tasty chewable tablets for medium to large dogs.

  6. My Nymeria needs this! She doesn’t like either of our 2 other rescue cats! I would love for her to be less stressed around them!

  7. Packing up, many oddities going on in my house as we plan to move this summer. Usually, nobody here but me & very, very quiet neighborhood. Cat isn’t happy. Usually packing means suitcase & gone overnight (very rare) with young neighbor stopping in to feed & water while cat hides. She can tell something is very, very different. I feel bad for her, as she hides all day & is disturbed by the noise & everything (as I am, too, which I know she picks up on, too) & then gradually, carefully comes out at night, to sleep. Thank you!

  8. My dog chew the door knobs and opens door after i leave the house because he has Separation anxiety. We have put him on Prozac but it doesn’t seem to help, i think i’ll try this.

  9. Id be interested in trying this for my dog

    Would love to try this with my dog.

  11. Need this for my new dog. Goes crazy when son leaves

  12. FREE Solliquin entry. Interested in the ones for senior dogs. Thank you!

    My older cat has ruined all my sheets ripping them to shreds. I have tried everything. No luck.

  14. We have been looking for a product to help our Newfound be calmer. This product could be something that would help her to be less ajitated.

  15. My dog is not real friendly with other dogs. This sounds like a product I would like to try on dog. She liked people even strangers. I would like to try a free sample of this product before I buy it. I think she would get benefits from this product

  16. I’m 70 and I have a large lab that is getting really difficult for me to handle. She barks for no reason extremely difficult to walk. I would love to try this for her so I can enjoy her more. Thank you for this opportunity

  17. My dog has been chewing up covers, towels, blankets, pillows almost anything material.
    She gets lots of exercise but has only an interest in her ball. She only chews up these things when we are home with her. I suppose it’s for attention or some form of anxiety. She is also aggressive towards certain other dogs and also people but is generally a great pet.
    I would like to try this new product.

  18. I would love to try something like this for my 7 yr. old doxie. He barks every time I leave him. I kive in a apt. bldg. and my neighbors say they can tell when I leave him by his barking, they say he only barks for about 10 minutes but they don’t complain about it but I would love a sample to see if it would help him.

  19. Omg my dog is a non stop barker. Any noise sets him off. Want to try anything at this point . Being 11

  20. If I could win my little rescue dog could use them . She’s terrified of thunder and loud noises !! I am going to get some even if I don’t win. !!

  21. I would love this for my Lily. She hates all the sounds my phone makes.

  22. I have tried various things to calm my two dogs…nothing works. Besides barking when someone comes to the door, they bark every time they hear the neighbor’s garage door opening or closing, or if people are talking outside, or if someone walks by in the street,etc. One of my dogs whines every time I take him in the car; whines til we reach our destination. They are 10 and 9 yrs. old and I have had the whiney one for 8 years and has done this since I got him. He also chews on anything wooden… destroyed 2 wicker chairs that I had to throw out, wooden stair railing, wooden dowels I had on the floor when I was putting something together, wooden clothespins. Both of them tore apart a new Serta Posturepedic dog bed I had just bought for them. The first dog I had for a year and then bought the 2nd dog as a pet for the first one because I thought it would keep him company. They keep each other company alright by sometimes being naughty. They are both Jack Russell Terriers and I know people will say, Well that explains it! This would be a real test to see if your product works on them. I would be willing to try it. There’s got to be something out there that works for them. Maybe this will!

  23. This sounds like a good product. I have several dogs who get upset during storms. Im willing to try this product and see if it works for them.

  24. Hoping to be a winner for my pups wellbeing.

  25. My shih tzu has separation anxiety whenever i leave. I would love to try this for for him! THANK YOU FOR THE CHANCE!
