I didn't really state this well or explicitly, but I think acepromazine alone can create some anxiety because of the potential for noise sensitivity and the dogs physically losing some control of themselves at the same time. I haven't used clonidine myself but some people do. Whatever specific drug, I like something for anxiety to smooth out the edges.

I hear you, and my husband actually mentioned something like this as well. Being mentally there but physically not may make him want to bark MORE. It's a little too short notice to look into other alternatives or conjunctions, so we'll just have to try this for now and keep it in mind for the future.
