I sent a note about this to Victoria as well. I love the idea of dinner and a timed carb before bed to help with aggression. In fact I wrote a book about this called Potatoes Not Prozac and I KNOW it can have a huge impact. However, I am going to respectfully disagree about using 5HTP in supplement form. You can overload the brain by using this and actually make the dog more aggressive.

brains are sensitive things and really it is much better to actually give the brain the nutrients it needs...ie protein at dinner and a timed carb a few hours later...and it will heal.

I use a product called Sam's Yams as the carb and it works beautifully. Read the book if you would like the science behind this.

I LOVED the show.
