11 Cool Things To Make For Dogs
If you have a dog, then you are undoubtedly in the market for pet supplies and plenty of them. If that is the case, you are in luck because there is a world full of pet products just waiting to be purchased and a lot of eager pets waiting to try them out. Most of these things to make for dogs can be done with your own two hands!
OK – maybe we don’t want to buy them, but are more interested in making them? We can often do a better job and for a fraction of what we would spend at the store.
While I share links below to other great bloggers who will teach you to make great things like a DIY Dog Cooling Mat to Tugga Toys – I want to share a fun thing with you first: Dog Calming Spray. And yes, that will make it TWELVE fun things to make for your dogs!
DIY Dog Calming Spray
What is calming spray for dogs?
Calming spray naturally calms dogs in stressful situations. It reduces anxiety in a new or stressful environment. Studies show that a mist modifies both the behaviors and physiology brought on by stress.
How do you use calming spray on dogs?
You do NOT put it directly on your dog – without covering their face. Otherwise, you spritz Dog Calming Spray in your dog’s kennel, carrier, or inside the car, 15 minutes before introducing your dog.
What dogs are prone to Anxiety?
Certain breeds like German & Australian Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers, Vizslas, Border Collies, Shorthair Pointers, Cocker Spaniels, Bichon Frises, and even King Charles Spaniel.
Of course “mutts” or mixed breeds can be effected too – it is always hard to figure out what traits are passed down.
