Karen Walwyn’s Naptime CD has been a God send! When I got my new puppy, bedtime produced a stressed out, crying puppy that kept everyone awake at night. I started playing Karen’s CD at bed time and within a few minutes my puppy stopped crying, laid down and went to sleep. It’s now become part of our night time routine, or any time I put him in his kennel for naps. It also works great for car rides! – Sandy A
