Yes, I figured it would be difficult to know for sure w/o having seen or know the dogs. Not expecting miracles here, just suggestions and reasons why/why not for one or another. This is really amazing the difference in him. I don't really see a difference in her other than she's calmed down a bit - she can be a bit wired sometimes but that's slowing down. Although that may be contributed at least partly to the fact she's approaching age 2 now. Since all the info I read/got says not to expect any results for about a month, I'm just being patient at this point.
Ok, since I'm really trying to understand all this very well, would you mind telling me why you say it doesn't sound like he needs Cherry Plum? What's with CP that you don't feel he needs this one? My info says it works on rage which is what I consider his outbursts at the window & doors to be. No? I'll definitely look into the Rock Rose and the Red Chestnut, too. It's really something that all this time we thought he was aggressive for some reason, but fear never ever entered our minds. The more I watch him and see his reactions and learn from the boards and other places, it's really really looking like that's the down deep problem. So, we need to build up his confidence which is my next round since now I'm getting him calmed down with what he's been taking.
Agrimony is on my list for the next purchase for her
Hmmm, maybe my male could use that one, too. Makes me think the "inner peace" thing would work on fears, your thoughts?
Cerato sounds good, thanks.
I wouldn't consider either one depressed. They're calmer now though
My male was a rescue but he's been w/us over 2 years, do you think after this long Star of Beth would be helpful? What you said about the trauma thing - interesting - because we were really wrong in the way we introduced the two of them when we brought Nissa home and he was all over her - very dominant. Scared her pretty good, but that was almost 2 years ago, might it still help her? She's not a rescue, got her at 3mos old and he was 13 mos at the time.
I looked, Beech is not in his mixture but I can fix that by mixing a new batch and adding it minus the Cherry Plum and Vervain but first I need to order the others.
