Last summer when I was not touring, I would live in the BAM van in my daughter’s driveway. Where she lives in California they allow for year-round fireworks. Needless to say, my dog Gidget and my daughter’s two Aussies struggle big time.
Many nights, all three dogs would be up shaking and unable to relax. This was often the case night after night.
I was determined to change this narrative and thought CBD would be the perfect path to explore. Sure, I tried lightning vests, playing music for distraction–and nothing worked for the dogs. Holidays like the Fourth of July were met with dread and fear of leaving the house, even for a second.

It’s funny I kicked & screamed about selling the van and ending the tour. My kid & her fiancé really were patient with me helping me to realize it was time. . . I barely leave my apartment I’m so happy! Funny how scared I was. So uncertain what life would look like. Couldn’t wrap my head around any of it. . . So quickly my body & mind have settled. I’m certain without a doubt I’m once again exactly where I’m supposed to be & grateful to have people in my life who love and watch out for me. . . When we are open to possibilities change can be life saving. . . Today lunch at the beach. A beautiful 20 minute drive with a Paleo restaurant on the way. @healthycreationscafe. . . #blessed #california #escondido #paleo #change #bestlife #daughtersrule #family #home #55plus #happy #bam
Below is a recipe I made for my 11-pound dog, Gidget. I tested the treats on her for weeks and found a full cookie was enough to help her totally relax for several hours. No noise or distractions seemed to create a stir!
I plan to give Gidget a full cookie twice a day this July 4th to help offset the negative outcome of fireworks.
I recommend you make these and start trying exploring the right serving for your dog before the Fourth of July this year.
