’Nip has a calming effect on dogs. It relaxes them to a place of peace and tranquility they all crave. Stuff a pinch into the pouch of a Doggijuana® toy for a healthy play session that will leave your dog dog-tired and curb natural play instincts. Sprinkle on their food to help promote healthy digestion and ease your dog into doggi-vana.
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.
