The Science of Wellness: Eat>Live>Love

Recently we decided to test the waters again with our 3-year-old English Pointer named “Drifter”. Commencing the process to give him more freedom of space in our home.

The first few times we were met with feathers from under the door. Only to find behind the door, inside the bedroom that our pooch, a hunting dog, had chewed a small hole along the seam of the duvet fill.  And voila the entire carpet was a few inches deep with fluffy soft billowy feathers.

I’m new to crate training a dog. As a puppy, he was crate trained so the crate is very much his home and dog den. We are attempting to give him more run of the house and a safe environment.

After a few unsuccessful attempts arriving home to half-eaten shoes, pillows and numerous duvet fills we decided to do our research and read up on anxiety in animals.

  • We find a few drops of 100% Veeva anxiety essential oil blend Lavender, Frankincense and Geranium on his favourite blanket, or crate carpet to be a wonderful way to remove his anxiety.
  • A diffuser also helps to add aromatherapy with this dog-friendly blend of essential oils. They work great for removing wet dog smells too.
  • Rescue remedy is a natural supplement that helps to combat your dog’s anxiety; a few drops in the water dish is all you need.

It’s peace of mind in the WellingsⓇ pet-friendly environment, and as a bonus, if you do use the diffuser and the essential oils, it will boost your mood and having a calming effect on you as well!

Eureka we have success!

It’s been several months with Drifter having the run of the bedroom and no more coming home to a room full of feathers! The anxiety blend has everything you and your dog needs to relax.

Happy dog, happier pack leaders!
