by Bostonhill Can't believe the price!
I bought this calming collar for my new rescue dog who is one half Dutch Shepherd and one half Belgium Malinois. Those who know the Mal say that there is no off switch. That's for sure. I have a 3 acre fenced in yard full of trees and little critters to chase. He spends lots of time outside chasing and running with my other energy driven dog, a Cattle dog mix. In addition I play Fetch with them for two 30 minute periods. I also train him for about 30 minutes and often take him to a store for socialization - still no relief from his constant begging and whining for attention. I got a coupon for $3 off this $15 calming collar. In short, it seems to work. He stopped whining immediately and went to play by himself. I would have given the collar 5 stars - HOWEVER - all other pet stores and the big store online sell it in a 3 pack for $15. I can't believe the price difference and wonder why Petsmart chooses to be so out of line in price. I should have given it 1 star, but I can't erase the other one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaschneider Best purchase ever!!
Our dog was afraid of everyone, snapped, ate shoes, trembled non-stop, and had terrible anxiety. She has been that way for the 2 yrs we have had her (adopted her at 4 months.) Within an hour of wearing the collar she was a completely different dog! She doesn't tremble, she doesn't have panic attacks when she hears people outside, no jumping, no clinging. Just an amazing difference in a dog we thought we would have to keep isolated since we were afraid she would bite out of fear to now be able to take her out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mvcy too fragrant
My dog has separation anxiety when we take him to the boarder. They recommended I try a calming collar. The overpowering fragrance was too much for him. He would not stop working to get it off. We tried our best to help him adjust. After several hours we finally took it off and then he calmed down. We will take it back and try a different collar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rkymtnldy GLDN w/Hotspots and a Cat who loves it!
I purchased this for my Male Golden Retriever 4.5age. He suffers from hot spots that have now turned into lick granuloma. This collar can't replace medications that are required at times for hotspots however, I feel the licking has slowed down. Has it stopped? No, only because you cant rely on a collar for the cure-all. If you want to buy this collar to some how magically supplement corrective behavior, medicine and or stimulation you wont find it with this product. But if you want to help improve their life I feel like this could. I also have a cat with no issues who seemed to migrate to the smell of it and just loved it. I have heard that more vets think it would work better on cat but limited research is available on dogs per the local vet here. Give it a try whats to lose really.
