Managing your Dogs Adrenaline Levels!

“High levels of adrenaline are associated with heightened vigilance, anxiety, and dogs may then be more reactive to small stressors.”

Ever taken your dog to the park and watched them run around with their friends and then all of a sudden it gets a little too rough and a fight breaks out? And you think to yourself how unusual that instance was because your dog is usually friendly and plays with everyone?

Well, it comes down to three important factors; arousal, threshold and reactiveness.

Arousal is the energy level of the dog, threshold is the level they are comfortable at and when they go over that threshold, they literally cannot think or remember anything. This is when your dog becomes reactive and their behaviour can become unpredictable and aggressive. This is why it is so important to manage your dog’s adrenaline levels when they are excited, stressed or anxious.

Now, picture this, you’ve spent the morning with your dog, maybe gone for a walk, given them a yummy breakfast or even had some playtime. You look at the clock and it’s time to go to work. You think to yourself that your dog has been out, you’ve left out some toys and treats so they will be fine and that nothing could possibly be destroyed as they’ve got all they need. Wrong.

What most people don’t realise is that you have just taken your dog from an extremely stimulating environment from the park or play, given them toys and treats that will only increase their adrenaline levels and left them alone with pent-up excitement with no way for them to release it. It is like holding a match really close to a stick of dynamite and hoping the fuse doesn't catch fire.

This is where Tricky Treats can help. By dispensing your dog’s toys and treats at certain times of the day, you are able to balance their adrenaline levels. This not only ensures that they stay calm throughout the day but will also assist in managing their excitement when it is time for you to come home.

So, with a thirty-day money back guarantee, make your dog’s life happier and more relaxed with Tricky Treats!
