LOL. The collar is really to help her cope w/ the outside world, because she's terrified of it, but the lady at the pet shop said to put it on her at lunchtime today to give it some time to kick in before puppy social class tonight. I definitely think it helps her, it didn't make her social butterfly or anything but she was less fearful and even sniffed at a few strange humans!
She had this one on today: http://www.1800petmeds.com/Calming+C...prod11130.html
And I also ordered a DAP one...
We will see how effective they are. They are a little pricey so if one of the two don't work I probably won't keep trying them...haha. But...yeah...the tearing up of a toy is sort of a normal behavior for her, she thinks its fun and so does Trigger...just she hadn't done it in ages and calming collar and BAM she did this haha. There was also a huge shredded pile of paper too. She was a busy girl LOL.
