De-stress Your Dog: New Interactive Chew Toys Provide Safe, Affordable Solution for Anxious Dogs
PetSafe® Busy Buddy® Chamomile-Scented Calming Toys help relieve anxiety and curb destructive behavior
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (October 3, 2016) – Studies have found that nearly 30 percent of dogs exhibit signs of anxiety, which can range from excessive barking to destructive behaviors and even aggression. While a variety of anxiety reducing products exist on the market today, pet parents now have a safe, affordable solution for easing their dog’s stress with the new PetSafe® Busy Buddy® Chamomile-Scented Calming Toys.
“Anxiety and stress can trigger a number of behavioral issues in dogs, which is the second most common reason dogs are surrendered to shelters,” said Andrea Fleer, product manager for Toys and Behavior, PetSafe® Brand. “Not all dogs respond positively to anxiety medications or wearable products, which is why we wanted to provide a natural, safe solution that not only helps calm the dog, but also offers an outlet for any destructive tendencies with a treat-dispensing rubber chew toy.”
Designed to help with separation anxiety and stress, the PetSafe Busy Buddy Chamomile-Scented Calming Toys dispense food and assist with problem-solving by distracting your pet from the cause of their anxiety, such as thunderstorms, fireworks, vet visits or other stressful situations. The soothing chamomile scent helps reduce anxiety, while the patented Treat Meter randomly dispenses treats to keep dogs entertained and playing longer.
Available in two sizes (small and medium), each kit comes with two different durable food/treat-dispensing chew toys, allowing pet parents to alternate between the two toys to provide variety and keep dogs interested and engaged. Training and behavior advice from professional dog trainers is also included.
The PetSafe Busy Buddy Chamomile-Scented Calming Toys are priced at $19.99 – $24.99 and are available for purchase on PetSafe.net.
