Aromatherapy for dogs?

Okay, this one is not related to music at all. But it is about calming your dog. Plus, it’s such an intriguing idea, that I just had to share with you all.

Enter: scented candles for your dogs (unfortunately no other pet versions yet). Sniff pet candles are hand poured in the USA, using eco-friendly, organic ingredients and for 70 hours will spread a specially designed scent around your home. Apparently, the various aromas are uniquely made to target common doggie problems. Anxiety is one of them, but they also have candles for excessive farting, giving a city dog the impression of being outdoors, or scaring away pet pests. Each candle is 38 dollars, but you could also get a bundle of 5 testers for 48 dollars.

We all know dogs have crazy sniffing abilities. In fact, as the company website instructs, dogs can identify smells between 1,000 to 10,000 times better than us humans. Their brains have 40 times more space devoted to analyzing smells. Considering all this, aromatherapy for dogs doesn’t sound too strange, does it?

May I also just say: I love the packaging! Very classy.

Overall, I’d be quite keen to try them, but might have to wait until they are available at a retailer in my region… My family members have some serious allergies, so I would be reluctant to buy (and ship…) candles without checking their reaction first.

Have you had any experience with dog aromatherapy? Or Sniff candles in particular?
