No More Car Sickness Since We Found "Calming Collars" For Our Yorkie.


When you have to travel and one of your dogs doesn't like to go anywhere in a car it becomes a situation that starts your day off on the wrong foot. So when we found the "Calming Collars" website that stated that they had a collar that not only worked, but worked "naturally", so we had to see for ourselves. Click on the "Calming Collars" header we used up above and check them out for yourself. And since your one of our readers of "Waterside Yorkies" they'll give you 10% off your order if you use our special code when you place your order. Just use the code: ws-yorkie and 10% will be taken off your order. Use it everytime you order and tell your friends about it too. I'm sure you know someone who has a pet that needs a little calming down.
We have had Yorkies for many years and Shiloh is the only one we have ever had that goes "green" when he gets in a car. Short or long car rides doesn't make a difference, he hates cars, the motion in the car, and the passing scenery out the window....everytime he turns "green". So we thought we would give their "Good To Go Calming Collar" a try.

They come in a variety of colors so you will be able to find that perfect design to match your pets personality. We chose the one above and waited patiently until it arrived. In the example below you will notice that is comes with a 2 channel width, but since we have Yorkies we got the single channel width. They also have a 4 channel width for bigger dogs. Shiloh didn't need to be covered up with the collar, only cured with it, so we got the single channel one.

And in the picture below you will see that it blended in with his fur and wasn't bulky at all. You really couldn't see it unless you dug around his neck looking for it. We didn't want to embarrass him on top of everything else.


The collar comes with a adjustable snap-0n clip that makes it really easy to use. You can make it fit just right for you pet so they won't even notice that it's on them.
But just how does this collar work? And is it safe for our dog to wear, what if he knocks it off and the other dogs tear it up?

It uses aromatherapy, the scent of the different herbs used calms the animal down. On their website they state that they have a better than 95% success rate. Pretty impressive we thought, so we let Shiloh give it a try. And if by some chance he gets it off his neck the herbs inside aren't harmful if ingested. This is good to know, especially if you own Yorkies...they love to tear things up...must be the terrier in them.
Shiloh seem to be doing better as we were putting it on him. Maybe he knew it was going to make his life a lot better and make our lives better too. No more turning "green", panting like a wild dog, pacing back and forth on the car seats.
Soon he laid down and stopped panting. He slowly began to just rest calmly in our laps, peaceful and comfortable. Shiloh rode the whole trip without being sick, we will test it again in the weeks to come. We may have solved the motion sickness problem we had with our Yorkie.
We read on the website that if you don't leave it on the dog all the time, you could put it back in the plastic bag and it will keep almost a year before it loses its effectiveness.
So if you have a dog or a cat that suffers from motion sickness we recommend you give "Calming Collars" a try. And soon you will be able to travel carefree without cat stress or dog anxiety.
The only problem now is we have to hide the car keys or Shiloh might take one of the cars on a true joy ride.

We got another collar for thunderphobia (fear of thunderstorms) and will be telling our results in a upcoming posting on our blog. Please check back and see how we did with the "Calm Me Down Calming Collar". If it works as well as the "Good To Go" collar did, we will be very happy pet owners.

Funny, isn't it -- the power of gentle touch. Just a simple pressure can do so much for mood and physical symptoms.
