I love my dog to the point when he’s feeling stress, I feel it to. I have a trip coming up this week and I decided when I was planning it that I wouldn’t take Peanut. He does okay for short distance trips but anything longer, he starts crying wanting to go home. Since I will be flying, and he’s not a great flying partner, I have a sitter lined up for him. He loves playing with her dogs but I know at some point he will start missing mommy.
That’s where ThunderShirt comes in handy. They have calming products I can send with him that will help him while I’m away. I’ve already packed up some calming spray and a calming plug in. I also packed two different kinds of leashes for him so there is 0 chance he will get away when he goes outside. That would be my worst fear because he would take off to find home.
The first leash is super easy to clip and un-clip and holds fast dogs up to 300 pounds. Peanut is not going to get away from this leash. I also packed his dial a leash which allows different lengths to walk him. When he’s near the drive, its better to keep him on a short leash. When he’s got to do his business, a longer leash allows him to do that with some privy and also allows him to get his exercise and use up his never ending energy.
