One of my dearest friends found a little Yorkie when they were in the process of moving to a new house. They tried looking for the owners to no avail, having no other recourse they asked me to take her in since the new rental agreement only allowed them to have one pet. When I took her to the veterinarians to see if she had a chip they informed me that they couldn't find one and then proceeded to tell me that her teeth were very bad. I have tried to brush her teeth but she puts up such a struggle that I am afraid I will hurt her little mouth and head when I try to hold her. Since Trixie is very particular about her treats I was ecstatic when I found that the Greenies Dental Chews turned out to be one of her favorite treats. 


Greenies are shaped like a toothbrush, are a little soft and bendy so she can chew them without hurting her gums. I only need to give her one chew a day to help clean the plaque and tarter off her teeth. They come in a variety of sizes so you can find one that will work for your dog; Teenie for 5-15 lbs, Petite for 15-25 lbs, Regular for 25-50 lbs, Large for 50-100 lbs, and Jumbo for dogs over 100 lbs. I ordered the Greenies Teenie size for 6 lb Trixie in the Freshmint flavor, they do a great job eliminating her bad breath.

We left our dogs with our daughter in law when we went on a week long vacation. While our newest dog, Redford, has a few anxiety issues like being left at home and seeing strangers. When we came home she informed us that Redford was okay while she was home with him, but when she had to go to work he would freak out and run all over the house looking for us. She didn't mind cleaning up the dirt that spilled all over the floor every time in jumped in the planter in order to look out the office window but she did mind when she discovered the huge mess he made in the guest room one day. It seems he accidentally closed the guest room door on himself, being unable to get out caused him to panic and he proceeded to tear out the carpet, padding, and tacking strip in front of the door!  We had adopted Redford 4 months prior from the humane society after his owner had passed and he wouldn't leave the body. The poor boy is so loyal, that being torn from his original owner has left him with a separation anxiety problem that obviously needs addressed, that is where the Calmz Anxiety Relief System comes in. 



The Calmz system came with an adjustable vest in a small size, a Calmz unit, instructions, and 3 AAA batteries. The vests come in XXS-XL sizes, the dog's girth needs to be measured in order to get the right size. 
                                      

There is a pocket in the front of the vest where you insert the device, it is held in place with a hoop & loop fastener. The back of the unit is exposed through an opening that allows the device to rest on certain acupressure points on the dog’s spine. When the device is activated, the clinically proven takes over. Your dog will hear and feel a therapeutic melding of classical music, tones and vibrations that soothes anxiety within minutes. Pushing the blue power button starts the device's NeuroSync™ Technology. This technology combines vibrations, calming tones and classical music as a therapeutic way to relieve the dogs anxiety. The intensity of the vibration, the duration of time it runs, and the repeat button can be set by pushing the blue button until the right setting is reached.
