Mekuti CALMING BAND
HELP WITH BARKING, FEAR AND AGGRESSION TOWARDS OTHER DOGS
Calming Bands may help with :
Meeting other dogs
Stopping your dog getting into the 'Zone'
Can be used in conjunction with a muzzle to help reduce anxiety.
The Mekuti Calming Band does not restrict movement, or keep the mouth closed.
The dog will be comfortably able to pant and drink, but will still be able to bark and bite.
They are not designed to be used as a head halter with a lead.
DO NOT LEAVE YOUR DOG UNATTENDED with a Calming Band on.
Calming Bands are used to bring an animals awareness to their mouth.
Within the system of Tellington TTouchTM, mouth-work is utilised to activate
the limbic system – the part of the brain that looks after the emotions.
The elasticized noseband
gently creates that contact whilst also changing their awareness e.g. barking can be a habit -
see dog (or postman), bark – during a barking episode the calming band gently brings their awareness
to their muzzle and thus interrupts the barking by taking their attention away from the stimulus.
By allowing them to be aware of habitual responses and behavioural patterns, they may change them and
begin to observe the world around them and respond rather than react to stimuli.
Customers tell us that their Calming Band is useful both outside, where they note their dogs become less reactive to other dogs and people and inside especially when visitors arrive.
"I really didn't expect this to work, but it has! I received this 5 days ago and immediately started to put it on my very yappy sheltie every time we went out for a walk.
From the very first time, I noticed a difference. Before, he would start barking at any dog as soon as he could see them and when they got closer his aggression made the other dogs aggressive. Now he doesn't bark, but greets other dogs with his ears down and his tail wagging.
And other dogs are equally nice to him!
Altogether a resounding success! Thank you".
"Absolutely brilliant! It’s so gentle. My Beardie normally barks out on walks, but now
there’s not a peep from her.
She would bark for her tea, but now stands like an angel. Her mum would wind
her up & make her bark, and that has stopped too!
I can’t believe it!"

"Just to say thanks for the (non-standard) calming bands. The large was just perfect for the dog in Hungary.
Between that, a balance lead, a confidence course, some clicker training and teaching him not to jump up at people.
He has gone from being tied up permanently and ignored, as nobody could go near him, to being walked every day, and the overworked mum of the family spends an hour every evening with him chilling out.
