Catnip

It’s not just for cats. If dogs sniff or eat it, it has relaxation properties and can even aid sleeplessness.

Chamomile

Dogs suffering from anxiety or skin/stomach upsets will be attracted to this plant’s scent.

Clary Sage

This one is good for high-strung animals.

Lavender

This pretty purple plant helps to reduce anxiety and other nervous conditions.

Mint

This fragrant plant lifts a dog’s energy and freshens his stinky doggie breath if he eats it. While spearmint and peppermint are good choices, avoid pennyroyal, as it can be toxic to dogs.

Violets

Nervous dogs may enjoy sniffing these happy little flowers.
