Poor baby pictured, but know she will be cooler.
Do you have any information for products that help a nervous dog settle a bit? Have a "Grand Dog' that barks so much!
Just curious!

Hi Sami,
Very good question ...
From what I know about 'Grand Dogs', they are big dogs.
You need to realise that he/she is only letting you know of possible danger around. He/she is only talking to you, communicating with you. Some barking is normal.

What we did with Bubbygirl right from the start - when she barks at inappropriate times, we quickly find out what she's barking at. We look her in the eyes and say quite softly and gently:
sh sh sh sh good girl. sh sh sh sh good girl. That's a good girl sh sh sh sh. Yes, there's a lady over there, good girl, sh sh sh sh. Yes, there's a doggie over there, good girl, sh sh sh sh.
Things like that.
For us it works every time. It starts to minimise the bark till it gradually reduces and stops. All the time we keep saying "gently" - Good girl sh sh sh sh. Good girl sh sh sh sh.
This is to acknowledge to her that we appreciate her alerting us, or warning us of possible danger, but that we have everything under control.
Then - if we go somewhere like to the beach, forest, deserted park etc, where there are no people, or very few people, and where there is a lot of noise (like waves crashing on the sand), we let her exercise her lungs freely. In fact we encourage her to bark by saying things that we know will make her bark. Every now and then, it's important to let them just bark and bark and bark.

What you can do is:
1) establish yourself as his/her Pack Leader by your body language and a certain 'look' or by gently shooshing at him.
You must never shout or be annoyed with him, because he will sense that you are out of control and won't obey.
He needs to know that you are the one in control (of yourself and your emotions).
Another thing you could try is:
2) give him some "Turmeric Powder" (about 1 teaspoon for a bid dog, less for a small dog) with a small Pinch of Black Pepper. Mix it into his food on a daily basis. It should calm him down after a few days.
Ginger is another good calming spice, (like for when you go on car trips where some dogs get car sick). A Ginger biscuit should calm him down.
Make sure that if you give your dog Any spices - too much is never good. Always a small amount is best.
3) Your Vet should be able to advise you and give you something, in any case.

I am in the middle of a new Post called "Spices and Dogs". I will be publishing it in a couple of days. It is very interesting and informative.

Good luck with your Grand Dog.

Thanks for your response- in this case, Grand dog is another name for my daughters dog! (Grandchild)
I will suggest she do a bit of research on ginger-as well as Turmeric Powder. Thank you again
