I am not an experienced dog show handler however I am an experienced pet owner and I had bred Labrador Retrievers for a number of years.
I have utilized my oils for a number of things with the dogs. And since my dog of choice can be known to have quite a broad range of temperment and emotions, it wasn't uncommon for me to utilize a few oils in stressful situations.
On two occasions I was required to utilize some oils for two different reasons at some dog shows.
On the first occasion, I took my female Fox Red Labrador to her first dog show. Lily was quite comfortable with me but was very nervous around others and other dogs. She never lashed out but was quick to hide. I rubbed some Valor on her nose, behind her ears and on the pads of her feet.
Lily never placed in her classes but she did gain the confidence to walk with me in the ring among other people and other dogs that she did not know. That was a total win for her that day!
Not anymore than a year later, I took her daughter - Fuoco into the ring. Fuoco had the exact opposite problem. Her temperment was the exact duplicate of her father's temperment.
I was able to utilize Peace & Calming and Lavender with Fuoco. Of course, fuoco also didn't place but she did learn the importance of manners in the ring that day. Again, a real win for her that entire weekend.
