Rated 2 out of 5 by Svymx2 Not great
I have a 7 year old Jack Russell and a 4 year old rat terrier. Both have high anxiety during thunderstorms and I thought I would try this collar for the Fourth of July fireworks based on the reviews. I was very disappointed. It helped a little with the little ones but not at all with the booms. Not worth the money at all. Did very little to decrease any stress or anxiety.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RatChi Happy 4th of July
My 2yr old RaChi has issues with fireworks, we have a lot of them starting in June, I hate having to medicate her every night, so read the reviews on the collar and decided to try it. Put it on, fire works started a few hours later, she heard them, look at me, walked to me, and sat down in my lap. Before the collar she'd run trying to climb up on anyone, on my head, over my shoulder, wouldn't stop, I had to hold her tight, cover her head with blanket, an sooth her. Praying this keeps her calm for the next month.

I have 2 standard poodles my baby who is about 2 yrs is very high strung. He has a very hard time being out in public even going for car rides. He barks at the door even when we come home, howls when we are gone. We tried and tried to correct this behavior but none of the training was working. I bought this collar on a whim and I can't believe the results!!! It's like meeting my dog for the first time. He is not stressed, he is focused and affectionate. We took him to the park he only barked once. He seem so much more happy and relaxed. I hope beyond hope that it keeps working. It's heartbreaking to realized how anxious he actually was! It is defiantly worth a try for a multitude of behavior problems.

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!
