Anyone else heard of this?  We are working with a dog trainer and the results are priceless.  Hank is really responding and becoming more and more well behaved each day.  He's still young and still crazy at times but that's okay.  Actually as I type this thread he's chasing a fly around the entire house.  That being said we are having issues with his behaviour when people come to visit or someone approaches us on a walk.  He goes absolutely nuts and becomes uncontrollable.  Our trainer (who we really respect) says he's been working with some dogs that exhibit similar behaviours.  He finds that supplementing Omega 3s in their diet has proven to settle them down and give them more control over their own excitement.  It makes them calmer and more balanced.  Has anyone else heard of this and if so, what form and how much Omega 3s are you giving your boxer?

Omega 3, but do you find it calms your boxer down?


Omega-3's are commonly used and include benefits for protecting the heart against the inflammation that can lead to blocked arteries and for aiding an irregular heartbeat. Research shows these polyunsaturated fats may also be helpful in preventing complications of diabetes and in soothing inflamed joints.

Fish are the primary source of omega-3 oils, fatty acids that support the circulatory system. Omega-3 oils are not produced by the body and can only be obtained through a diet rich in fish or supple-mentation.

It has been sited in being used for attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder in people, therefore the thought is that it would help in dogs as well. I feel it is a try and see thing though..... even if it fails in helping with the hyper it helps in other ways!
