You may have seen, if you follow our social media channels, we’ve been working with the beautiful Florence. Also known as “Florence the Cotswold Cocker’ to her growing fan base of social media followers, Florence is the beloved pet of Norbert and his wife. You can find Florence on Instagram here! After stumbling across a blog post “A year and a half on with our nervous dog” we were interested in Florence’s story and journey as a dog who suffers with anxiety and nervousness. Not quite the confident puppy Norbert and his wife were expecting, Florence struggled in busy social situations and would shiver and shake in their arms. It’s been baby steps and clearly lots of love and care that has helped Florence grow in confidence, as well as her best friend, Roger the sprocker! Having read Florence’s story and issues with nerves, we felt compelled to reach out to Norbert to offer a trial of our Calming Support Range. We’ve been keeping in touch with owner Norbert, for regular chats about how Florence has been getting on and we’re delighted to share this fantastic feedback with you… “We were expecting a visitor when we gave Florence the chews the first time. She had 2 of them as per the recommendation. Flo gets nervous around strangers even in our house. She isn’t barking or being aggressive, she just keeps her distance. At times she would go near the person for a sniff but she looks very unsure. This time she did well! The chews levelled her out and she was visibly more comfortable with having someone around. She walked around the lounge, went over for a sniff, and just generally acted normal. My wife took Florence out last Saturday for a walk to town and they stopped at a dog friendly cafe for a drink. We gave her 2 chews before the walk. Helen told me that Florence settled down in the cafe and was calm the whole time they were there. That’s pretty good for Flo, as she normally doesn’t settle for long. The one thing we have noticed is 2 chews are making her quite drowsy, and she sleeps all-day after taking them. This weekend we all went to town for brunch. We only gave her 1 chew this time. We went to a fairly busy and noisy place in town and she did so well! Flo was calm and settled for the whole duration of our lunch. I think this was the first time we enjoyed our food without having to constantly reassure her. We also walked into town and along the busy promenade. Florence was leading the way with her tail up, instead of trying to hide behind us. She looked very comfortable. We are delighted with the affects the chews are having on Florence and will definitely be recommending these to friends and continuing to use them for Flo.” We’re so pleased that our calming chews are helping to calm Florence in busy situations! We’ll be keeping up to date with Florence’s progress, so don’t forget to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to keep up to date with the latest news.
