Frequently Asked Questions

We get it... catnip for dogs seems a bit strange. We've answered some of our most common questions below.

Catnip Questions

How Does Catnip Affect My Dog?

Dogs have catnip receptors in their faces and stomachs, similar to cats. Nepetalactone, the essential oil in catnip, binds to the receptors and induces a response that is so relaxing, it’s drool worthy. Dogs don’t get “high” from catnip like cats do. Instead, it is a calming agent when eaten and a great way to encourage your dog to play longer through smell! Not all dogs react to catnip. It takes about 30 minutes to see a reaction.

So why don't dogs get that euphoric response? Well cats also have receptors in their cheeks and the roof of their mouths. This is why dogs don't get the same reaction from catnip that cats do.

What Is Juananip?

It’s all-natural, organic catnip! Catnip is a plant in the mint family that contains the essential oil, Nepetalactone. When combined with a toy, catnip is a new and exciting scent that keeps dogs engaged and encourages them to play with their toy longer. When dogs eat catnip, the Nepetalactone binds to the receptors in the stomach and sends a message to the brain to relax.

How Do I Use Catnip/Juananip?

Place a pinch of Juananip in the pouch on the side of the toy, play with your pet for about 20 minutes, and then sprinkle some on their food for a longer-lasting calming effect. Click to see our feeding recommendations.

Is Catnip/Juananip Safe for My Dog?

Yes! Catnip is safe and non-toxic for dogs. The worst that could happen if they were to ingest a large amount is an upset stomach or being drowsy. The effects will wear off after about an hour and do not pose any long term health risks. If your pet is on medication or pregnant/nursing, we recommend asking your vet.

Can My Dog Consume Too Much Catnip/Juananip?

Eating a large amount (like the whole bottle!) could cause your dog to have an upset stomach. We recommend only giving them a small amount, about 1/4 - 1 tsp. The worst thing that can happen is that it will lose its effectiveness if used too much or your pet can become a tad bit too hyper or calm. The good news is that the effects wear off in about an hour.

Is There Marijuana in Your Products?

Of course not! Juananip is all-natural, organic catnip grown in the USA and Canada. That's the only ingredient in Juananip.
