Ark Naturals Happy Traveler

Posted in Product Reviews

By Jennifer Lueck

My dogs Gabe and Casey are very frightened by fireworks, which makes the 4th of July an unhappy day for us. This year I decided to try to give them something to help them with their anxiety: Ark Naturals Happy Traveler.

According to the bottle it is an “All Natural Calming Product” that “helps anxiety and nervous behavior.” Its main ingredients are Valerian, German Chamomile, L-Tryptophan and St. John's Wort. The bottle says to allow 20-40 minutes for Happy Traveler to be effective so I gave both dogs the recommended dosage for their weight (2 tablets) at 7:30 pm. I gave them a third tablet an hour later, as the bottle recommended. By the time the fireworks were going off steadily in my neighborhood, my dogs were both quite relaxed. Casey got a little upset by the loudest fireworks, but she settled down quickly each time. I don't think Gabe even noticed them. This Fourth of July was much less stressful for my dogs than ever before!

I recently tested Happy Traveler with a storm, too. I knew we were expecting a storm during the night so I gave Gabe two tablets before bed. I didn't give any to Casey because storms don't usually bother her. The storm hit at 1:30 am and Gabe handled it very well. He was awake during the storm but didn't bark, pace or pant. Casey, on the other hand, was a nervous wreck, but it was too late to give her any Happy Traveler. She was anxious, wouldn't settle down andpanted through the whole storm. I gave her Rescue Remedy, but she was still quite anxious.

Happy Traveler has definitely helped my dogs and I highly recommend it for anyone who has a dog that is scared of storms or fireworks!!!

You can buy Happy Traveler at Petco and online at www.mothernature.com and www.amazon.com.
