CBD Success Story: A word from one of our Dope Dogs
Sharing a sweet success story from one of our first customers, Kimba. Thanks for sharing!
"Jake, my old man, will be 17 on the 18th of Sept. I’ve had him since he was 8 weeks old. He has a stage 5 heart murmur and is on a couple of heart meds and water pills. He is also blind and gets anxious. I give him Dope Dog and it settles him right down. Jake loves the crunchy biscuits and I love them because they keep him calm, they help his pain, they clean his teeth and they keep my anxiety levels low where my old guy is concerned! I was driving 30 miles to buy them and then I saw I could buy them online!! So I have them on auto ship every three weeks."
"These treats also help Jake sleep at night. That helps me sleep as well!! These treats are a life saver on so many levels!!! Thank you Dope Dog for making such an awesome product!!"
Kimba, we are happy you are finally getting some rest now that you know Jake is sleeping sound =) ~From Dope Dog
As you’ve read in this story, our products helped Kimba sleep peacefully and helped him remain relaxed throughout the night. This also allowed Jack to sleep peacefully, knowing his dog is calm and not in pain.
We have made our products conveniently available for purchase online; that way, people like Jack don’t have to drive long distances. Regardless of your location, at Dope Dog, we want to make things easy and convenient for you.
A Dope Dog Success Story: Tundra The Alusky
Separation anxiety is produced in dogs when they become upset because of separation from their guardians, who are the people they are mostly attached to. Dogs make attempts to escape when their separation anxiety is at extreme levels. This can result in self-injury and household destruction, especially around exit points like windows and doors. This is a serious condition that is challenging to cure in dogs.
We want to share this touching story about successful separation anxiety being resolved. This story is coming to us from San Diego! Molly, thank you so much for sharing Tundra's story. He is ADORABLE!
"Hi! My name is Molly and I’m the owner of a 2 year old husky/malamute mix named Tundra. We got him officially two months ago, and he’s a VERY anxious doggo. When we got him, he was very used to being outside all the time, because he had always had separation anxiety but the previous owners didn’t know how to handle it, so he was left outside when they left. As a result, obviously, it didn’t get better. When we got him if we left for even a few minutes he would cry, and cry, and cry.... until we got back. He just could not be left alone without getting severely depressed.
We tried many different things but recently tried Dope Dog after we saw them on Instagram. It has worked WONDERS on him. He is more focused while training and can handle being left alone. He is just much more relaxed and is learning how to be a real dog little by little with the help of Dope Dog treats. We think he loves the peanut butter treats more than he loves us sometimes thank you guys so much!"
This is such a fantastic story that touched our hearts. It gives us such joy hearing stories such as this one. Tundra is a much happier dog, and since he is more focused on his training, he is so much more relaxed and comfortable with his family.

Shyla's success story: 15 years old and thriving!
This touching story and video comes to us from a wonderful group called K9 C.A.R.E. Inc., a deep water aquatic center built specifically for dogs located in upstate New York. This story is about Shyla, one of the many dogs they have helped over the years.
Here is Shyla’s remarkable story...
“Shyla is 15+ years old, every day with a dog of that age is a gift. Shyla had a very rough night Wednesday night, she vomited 3 times during the night, she was quite restless and could not get comfortable. In the morning she did not want to eat or drink. She was not moving well. She would take a few steps and just stand there, with her head low. Not moving. Now, this is disturbing behavior for an older dog. Especially one who previously had a great appetite. Things are not looking good. We were very concerned. Then we said let’s give her some CBD oil, “we have nothing to lose”
Well. The difference this made to this dog is nothing short of a miracle. I wish I had taken a video of her before the CBD oil. Thursday we thought we were going to lose her, Saturday evening she was bouncing around. She was actually dancing and jumping around all day Saturday. She is eating and drinking again, she is happy and full of energy.
This is no coincidence…there is absolutely nothing else to attribute this amazing turn around to other than CBD Oil. Period.”
This story is quite touching because our products help dogs regardless of their age, size, and condition. It was so great to hear that Shyla's condition improved with the use of our CBD Oil. She is much happier, healthier, and enjoying life to the fullest!
A CBD Success Story: Epilepsy
Does someone you know struggle with epilepsy?
Epilepsy is a challenging medical condition because it can happen at any time. It is a disorder in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed, causing seizures. As a matter of course, epilepsy and seizures result from abnormal circuit activity in the brain. Any event ranging from faulty wiring during brain development, brain inflammation, physical injury, or infection can lead to seizures and epilepsy.
Epilepsy can occur due to a genetic disorder or an acquired brain injury, such as a trauma or stroke.
During a seizure, a dog experiences abnormal behavior, symptoms, and sensations, sometimes including loss of consciousness. There are few symptoms between seizures. Epilepsy is usually treated by medications and, in some cases, by surgery, devices, or dietary changes.
Epilepsy requires lifelong treatment to control the seizures; in some rare cases, there is a possibility that the seizures may go away. However, the chance of becoming seizure-free is not good. The chances of their occurrence may decrease over time.
I would like to share this heartfelt story about the positive affects that CBD had on the life of TWO family members: one human and one Dope Dog.
"We specifically chose our little guy, Mr. Bandit a boy, because he is a bull terrier(ish) and bull terriers can be prone to epilepsy. We hoped he wouldn’t have epilepsy, but my husband has epilepsy so I thought they would be a good match and give each other comfort in their possibly mutual condition. Right away we realized Bandit had seizures, usually when he is sleeping or relaxing.
My husband has been on medication for much of his life and he knows the struggles and trials of treating epilepsy with meds. After a year and a half of Bandit’s seizures, we found Dope Dog hemp oil and calming crunchies. My husband’s seizures can be brought on by just high energy and intensity of mood - Bandit is such an energetic pup and we have only seen a calmer demeanor from that intensity since we’ve been using our Dope Dog goodies regularly.
We have been dosing 6mg per his 60 lbs as recommended for two months and I have only noticed two minor seizures since. He used to have seizures almost daily. Not only has his success obviously benefited Bandit, but it has encouraged my husband to try CBD in his diet as well. Bandit may have seizures and it may be rough, but it’s given him a special bond with my husband.
Before he has a seizure Bandit has a natural inclination to run to him so he can hug him until it’s passed. They’ve helped each other along the way and Dope Dog has ultimately helped Bandit be the best support doggo with seizures to his pawp. We know the difficulties in finding a solution for seizures and hope that everyone takes Dope Dog’s mission to heart! It’s worth every drop towards a better life!"

CBD Success Story: Joint Pain
Joint pain is one of the most common issues seen in dogs. The signs of joint pain can emerge even in young dogs. Therefore it is important to be observant and spot the signs. Check out what Forbes has to say.
The commonly seen signs of joint pain in dogs are limping, reluctant to move around, spinal issues, loss of appetite, depression, sleepiness, irritability, aggression, chewing, biting, and licking. These are mainly the most common signs to watch out for and, here is how to spot them out in your dog.
A word from Chevy The Boston...
"Anyone else use CBD oil for their pup? Chevy uses it daily to manage her back/hip pain. It works wonders! It’s literally the difference between her being able to sit down in a timely manner vs having to spin 5 times, adjust her legs, spin 2 more times, and then slowly move her butt towards the ground in a half sit position. She used to be on pain Meds that were messing up her insides... so we took her off the Meds and out of pure desperation to find something that would work without nasty side effects... we gave CBD oil a try.
Chevy used to keep me up all night trying to get comfortable. I would have to manually lay her down every hour or so otherwise she kept spinning circles trying to lay down herself and find a comfortable position. It can be used for anxiety, it helps with inflammation, pain that comes with aging, epilepsy, and more. Head to @dopedogtreats or more info. Or, if you have any questions feel free to ask! We have done tons of research. Made in the USA (actually not too far from our house in Los Angeles, CA), made in small batches and lab tested."
Thanks for the wonderful review! Connect with Chevy on IG @ChevytheBoston
As you have read earlier in this section about the different ways to spot for signs in your dog for joint pain, it is visible how uncomfortable it is to be in that condition. We are touched and honored that our products have easied and relieved the pain in many dogs all across the country. Being in pain is such a horrible condition to be in.
We are genuinely thankful that this story is also a successful one.

Back to School: A CBD Success Story
This is a unique success story coming to us from college student Lauren, about her cutie pie Bailey.
"When I moved from PA to MD with my pup, Bailey, I knew it could be a stressful move as it was her first. We live on a college campus for my job and she’s always adjusted well to noise, but in our new place, it was a bit more loud with hearing outside noises and it created some anxious barking for Bailey. I did a bunch of research and came across Dope Dog treats and decided to give the treats and oil a try. Not only did I notice a difference in her barking, but my neighbors did too! I love being able to provide a natural anxiety aid for her barking and feel good about what’s going into her body! Plus, she loves the taste of the Pb crunchies, salmon oil and the unflavored oil! Thank you so much Dope Dog!"
Mentally and emotionally, relocating is also difficult for dogs. The place is unfamiliar; it is new and a completely different environment than what your dog is used to. Just like for humans, it takes time to adapt to change; it is a similar process for dogs.
We are happy to hear at Dope Dog that our product helped your dog become less anxious and fell better.
Thanks for sharing Lauren!
