The Anxious Pet Online reached out to Lakeside Animal Hospital’s Dr. Jennifer Frione to ask about the effectiveness of calming dog beds.
“A calming bed would be useful for pets with very mild separation anxiety that show minimal signs intermittently,” says Dr. Jennifer Frione of the Lakeside Animal Hospital in Plantation, Florida.
But Frione explains that a calming dog bed isn’t a one-stop-solution to get rid of anxiety in our canine companions and says they are best used in conjunction with behavioral modification training and/or medication. “Canine anxiety, unfortunately, does not have one easy fix,” she says. “It is complex and takes time, patience, and consistency to help your fur-baby overcome it.”
