Dog noses are tens of thousands of times more sensitive to smells than our own, so it makes sense that they would definitely be affected by aromatherapy. But what scents are good to use for your dog? Below is a list compiled by Elyse Horvath, owner of Natural Paws that includes not only the psychological benefits but the physical as well. Remember to talk to your vet and/or certified dog trainer/behavior specialist when trying therapy for behavior or medical problems.
