The Calming Collar smells strongly of lavender and herbs and is not meant for everyday use. Instead, snap it on to calm your furry friend’s separation anxiety, during thunderstorms, bad weather, and fireworks, or before stressful trips to the vet or groomer. To keep its potency, seal the collar in a bag when not using. The collar comes in five sizes, $32. Buy it!
