Herbal Dog Care?

Hi there!

Completely new user... I was wondering if anyone else has had success with using herbal relaxing agents in conjunction with training to ease separation anxiety?

I have a two and a half to three year old dog, who used to go wild when we left her alone. Since we have moved, she hasn't chewed ANYTHING, but I'm sure it's a combination of being outside more often and more consistant training.

I have considered giving her a low dose of St. John's Wart to help her relax while we are gone while training at the same time of course.

Any ideas or suggestions? I will have to search the forums as I'm sure this topic has been visited before.

Thanks in advance!

You can do a search to find out prices and stuff, but this website gives a pretty good description of it. I've never used this website so I'm not endorsing it, but the description seems pretty good. Hopefully this helps.
