“I’ve found that the Calming Cap tends to have an overall suppressive effect on behavior, much like what the Gentle Leader® does with many dogs. The Cap has also helped to decrease my Dalmatian’s alarm barking in the house in response to outside noises".

“I’ve used it on Emma (Shetland Sheepdog) when she’s too excited, running back and forth and barking in the back of the wagon. It works great! She quiets down immediately, and either stands quietly and looks out the window, or lies down and goes to sleep.”
Satisfied Dog Owner
"At Nassau Vet, we do everything in our power to make a trip to the vet less scary.... and maybe even (dare I say it?) a bit of fun and socialization. But for some dogs, a trip to the vet can become a nightmare - these dogs may have had a bad experience, been genetically predisposed, or just poorly socialized as puppies. In a number of instances, our staff uses the Calming Cap and extremely calm, gentle handling and encouragement to take the edge off these dogs. We find it to be a CRUCIAL piece of equipment now that we have it. It can help during blood draws, exams and while administering anesthesia. Great equipment to have on hand."
