    How do I stop Jinnie from being nervous

    Those who have read about Jinnie know her background, but recently she has started to become very nervous. Mainly first thing in the morning on eating her breakfast is there any advice on how to overcome this.

    Gloshei - I had not heard of Jinnie before - is she a full breed Poodle?
    I know cats more than dogs.  Have you searched for information in Google, or call a Vet and ask them for a remedy?  Sometimes Pet Stores sell products to calm dogs and cats with a chewy kibble once or twice a day, a little expensive.  Maybe some soothing music or a playtime in a different time of day.  She looks precious.
    Good Luck.

    Hi Deb,
    Yes she is precious to us, I thought I would ask here first as you never know somebody may have experienced the same thing with a rescue dog.
    I will do as you say though and look on the web, I did ask at the vet when shehad her teeth cleaned the other day but being French I don't think I explained it very well.
    Thanks for your reply anyway and will look into kibble chews for her. If not I may be able to buy them on Amazon.

    What is she doing during breakfast exactly? Is she getting a good amount of exercise/play time/mental stimulation each day? I tried to look for more info about her background but could not find any.

    You need to get a veterinary evaluation first to rule out medical causes for her nervousness. Most veterinarians are not comfortable or well versed in behavior, but if your veterinarian is, great! You need a diagnosis and treatment plan.

    If your veterinarian is not, then look for a board-certified veterinary behaviorist ( to consult, a certified animal behaviorist ( … -directory) or reward-based professional trainer with experience in behavior modification, including anxiety - preferably a clicker trainer.

    Oftentimes veterinary behaviorists will consult directly with your local veterinarian via the phone to develop a diagnosis and treatment plan.

    The treatment plan will include an individualized behavior modification plan that will include procedures such as systematic desensitization as well as a unique combination of therapeutic modalities for your pet. It should be based on a thorough behavioral assessment.

    Some modalities that you can implement in the meantime include: 1) The Anxiety Wrap (, and 2) Through A Dog's Ear music to calm canines (

    Please see my hub about the different pressure wraps available for calming pets that are on the market. In my practice I have had 100% success with The Anxiety Wrap: … iety_wrap.
    There are other things worth trying, but seek the guidance of a professional - for example, L-tryptophan ( … xiety.html),  Composure, D.A.P. (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) and Rescue Remedy.
