Calming Collars are based on aromatherapy. Over the years we have developed and just about perfected two blends of calming herbs to help animals. We were issued a patent on our unique design. The Calm Me Down is our most popular product. It helps the wearer relax and takes the edge off of most scary or stressful situations. The Good to Go helps animals that suffer from motion sickness. We now offer a Calming Sachet Set, filled with either of these blends. The Calming Sachet Sets are great when you want calming, without the collar. They will help both people and pets. Great for calming cats that don't do well with collars. Rounding out our product line are Too Cool Collars. They utilize polymer crystals that expand when wet, turning into a gel to help keep the wearer cool. They do not calm the pet, just cool them down. Best to keep a dog cool and even their person, cats -- not so much.
All of our products are safe and use the same quality calming herbs as our original "people" products. We never use any essential oils. Specific herbs are listed on each product page. Although not organic, they are food grade herbs. Even if eaten, they will not harm your pet.
For most situations, it is best to "get ahead" of the stress. If possible, put the Calming Collar on 20 to 30 minutes before a stressful event. Of course, you can't always predict when a storm will hit or a stressful event will occur. If bad weather is predicted, you can have your dog or cat wear their Calming Collar all day long and they will be ready! If your pet is already stressed or anxious when you put on their Calming Collar it may take a little longer for them to relax.
Some do wear a Calming Collar 24/7 and the only downside to this is the herbs will not last as long. When exposed to air 24/7 a Calming Collar will usually last 3 to 4 months. If only worn a few times per week and stored in a plastic bag when not being worn, the herbs may last a year or more. Many customers buy a new one each year. Some get a couple of years of use. This is much longer than the plastic "flea collar" looking dog and cat pheromone collars, plus you can pronounce everything in our cotton collars.
Your purchase will be made to order. No collars are filled with our calming herbs until we receive your order. Most orders are sewn, filled and shipped in under a week -- usually more quickly.
Not sure what width to order -- a standard 2 row, a single row, or an extra wide? It is a matter of neck length. The standard 2 rows is about 2 inches wide. The single row is under an inch wide and more round. The single row is recommended for cats and smaller dogs. Medium and larger sized dogs may need the additional herbs that our standard 2 rows provide. The extra wide works best on Too Cool Collars. The extra wide is 4 rows wide and is between 4 and 5 inches wide. Check out the video that explains the difference.

Our products are sized according to a neck measurement. To order the correct size, measure your pet's neck and check the chart below. You want a loose measure, not tight. If in between sizes, order the larger size. Need a custom size, just select "custom" for the size and let us know in the comments during checkout your pet's actual neck measurement. We'll make up a custom cat or dog collar.
