An Old Dog With New Tricks
Our Rottweiler/English Springer Spaniel Mix was always afraid when is came to thunder storms and fireworks, but as she aged this became much worse. She also became so stubborn she was totally refusing to listen to commands and to go outside to do the business. We were really becoming frustrated and out of ideas until our vet recommended Reconcile. After taking Reconcile it is like she has reversed in age and she is listening to all of our commands again and going outside.
When administered daily to my Border Collie with severe separation anxiety, she seems to relax a little as long as we leave the house quickly. It's pretty reliable but after a great deal of desensitization training, she still needs the medication to stay calm. This product doesn't do everything it promises but it's better than nothing. We have used this product for three months but I will probably change prescriptions at the next vet appointment.
My 60 lb mixed boxer/pit/german shepard has seen great improvement in his behavior after taking Reconcile for a few months. He used to have to be locked up in his crate or he would destroy anything he could get his mouth on when we were gone. Now, I'm able to leave him out of his crate for anywhere from 1-6 hours without him destroying the house. I would recommend anyone to try this product if your pet is experiencing separation anxiety and give it a few months to really see a significant change. An immediate change was evident, but after a few months, I don't know what I would do without this product.
Necessary For My Dog.
I adopted a 65lb junk yard dog (pit bull) that has both anxiety and aggression issues. We have come a long way with training since I adopted him, but I will say this product helps him a lot in "mellowing" him out. It was recommended to me by my behavorial vet and I wasn't sure if I was seeing results or not. Then I took him off of the product for two months and that is when I could certainly see the changes in his behavior. It isn't a miracle product that will suddenly wipe away your dog's issues, but it really does help keep them calmer and relaxed in high stress situations.
This has been a tremendous help in our household. Our dog with anxiety has been able to relax and play.
