Long Term Health Care Plan
- Start by giving your dog Sleepy Time Tonic twice per day.
- Two weeks after starting the elixirs, hire an experienced dog trainer who uses natural training methods. Retraining your dog to react differently in stressful situations will break the habit and is much simpler when accompanied by a habit breaking homeopathic remedy like Sleepy Time Tonic.
- Just a few weeks of professional training (which you then continue with your dog), coupled with herbal elixirs given for 3 or 4 months, should be sufficient to break the nervous habit reactions, leaving the dog and your whole household much more relaxed and calm.
- As the dog's personality changes, you may reduce the dose to once per day.

Why is my dog so nervous?
There are underlying nervous system predispositions and weaknesses, some deriving from breeding and others from the overuse of their nervous systems. This is developed and reinforced by the repeated reaction patterns of fear, apprehension, aggression or hyperactivity.
Sleepy Time Tonic works to nourish the physical nervous system and assists in retraining efforts to break habits like barking, cowering or aggression.
