Keeping animals focused during training or in new environments can be quite challenging. Our lives and the environment around us are busy and distracting, even for us. Regardless of how hard they try, sometimes our pets just can’t help but get distracted by external stimuli.
During training situations or throughout your daily life, if you find it difficult to keep your pet paying attention to you instead of the squirrel in neighbor’s yard, Clear Thinking can help. Clear Thinking allows animals to:
- Maintain focus and reduce their reaction to external stimuli
- Lessen their frustration when you ask them for their full attention
- Improve their capacity to learn and concentrate
- Open their mind to clear communication and engagement
- Optimize their training sessions and develop a strong bond with you
Clear Thinking is an exceptionally easy way to help you regain your pet’s focus. Let’s face it, not having their full attention is frustrating for the both of you. You may feel as though you’re wasting time and energy trying to get their attention repeatedly. They may be frustrated because they don’t understand why you constantly ask the same thing.
Clear Thinking can be used in all species of any age. Clear Thinking is easily paired with any of the Botanical Animal Flower Essences but pairs best with Ego Builder, Mellow Out, Easy Does It and/or In Training.
Do not allow children to handle glass bottle. Use caution when administering flower essence with glass pipette directly into mouth. If using a plastic pipette, do not keep the plastic in bottle, as it may alter the flower essences and cause them to be less effective. Wash pipette after direct contact with mouth to prevent contamination. Keep away from open flames.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE/APPLICATIONS
As the flower essences are in a liquid form, they can be used in a variety of ways to best suit your animal. Use as part of your animal’s daily regimen to optimize effectiveness. Adding more drops than recommended will not increase effect or hasten results.
For short term situations where the negative behavior is displayed, use one hour prior to event. If used for training, incorporate into your animal’s daily care regimen, preferably one hour before training session.
For the most effective and immediate results, placing the recommended number of drops into animal’s mouth using pipette provided or a plastic pipette is best. Wash pipette thoroughly after use before returning it to the bottle.
For feral or hard to approach animals, utilizing a spray is helpful. Add 3-4 drops to 8oz. distilled, purified or spring water in a spray bottle. Spray directly into air in the direction of your animal’s mouth, nose and ears as well as their paws, hooves, or feet.
The easiest way to incorporate them into your life is to add the flower essences directly to your animal’s water bowl or bucket. Change water daily for best results and replenish the flower essences with each water change.
Apply recommended number of drops to your pet’s favorite hard treat. Using hard dog biscuits, carrots or apples is best as these will not absorb the flower essences quickly and affect efficacy. This method is not recommended as the essences may be absorbed by the food and not be as effective as placing the drops directly into the mouth or water.
Note: The rhythmic use of the flower essences improves their efficacy. The effects are improved by using them on a more frequent and consistent basis, not by increasing the dosage at one time.
Keep container tightly sealed. Keep out of direct sunlight. To prolong life of product, keep in refrigerator after opening.
Shake well before using. The best way to shake the flower essences is to use succession. To use this method, vigorously tap the bottom of the bottle on the palm of your hand as this activates the flower essences inside.
A short loading dose is recommended when beginning to use the flower essences. Simply use the recommended dosage two to three times daily for the first three days. Once the desired balance has been reached, use recommended dosage one to two times daily as part of your animal’s daily regimen to optimize efficacy.

A friend of mine, who is a professional dog trainer, recommended the Botanical Animal products to me several years ago, to use as a tool with my Bull Terriers who were having problems calming down and focusing. I use the Clear-Thinking, Ego-Builder and Cris-ease together. It's like a big cleansing breath for their minds and emotions, so training can actually happen. I swear by these products, use them daily, and am so grateful that they are available. No, it's not a quick fix or miracle cure, but the best kind of adjunct to help your dogs navigate the world they live in with us.
