FAQ

WHAT IS DOGGINIP?

It’s catnip! Catnip is a plant in the mint family that contains the essential oil known as Nepetalactone. In cats, it is thought that when smelling the catnip, the Nepetalactone targets the receptors in the brain and causes euphoria. It does so by binding to protein receptors in the nasal cavity and stimulating sensory neurons which provoke a response in the part of the brain that regulates the emotions (Hypothalamus). Our signature Dogginip is grown throughout the United States and Canada.

HOW DOES CATNIP WORK IN DOGS?

Dogs have catnip receptors in their face and stomachs, similar to cats. When sniffed or eaten, the Nepetalactone 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!

HOW DO I USE DOGGINIP?

Place a pinch of Dogginip in the pouch on the side of the toy, play with your pet for about 20 minutes, and then sprinkle about ¼ tsp on their food for a calming effect.

  

IS DOGGINIP SAFE FOR MY DOG?

Yes! There are no documented side effects of catnip being used in dogs or cats.

CAN MY DOG EAT TOO MUCH DOGGINIP?

Your dog cannot eat too much Dogginip, but we don’t want to waste, so only give them a small amount. 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 just a few minutes.

DOES EVERY DOG REACT TO DOGGINIP?

Not all dogs react to catnip, however most do, and it usually takes about 30 minutes to see a reaction.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER BENEFITS OF CATNIP FOR DOGS?

It is effective at calming nerves for new objects, places, traveling, storms, fireworks or going to the vet or groomer. Additionally, it can encourage appetite for dogs suffering from diseases that cause them to be anorexic or nauseous. Catnip also contains minerals, vitamins, and essential oils that help keep dogs’ digestive systems healthy.
