Dogs can suffer from stress and anxiety, which may result in them behaving badly: excessive barking, whining, destructiveness, uncleanliness and excessive licking. You can find out more information here on anxiety, stress and unwanted behaviour here.
In some situations, it is important that the dog is helped to get rid of the fear or anxiety, or at least to help it feel better. Adaptil Collar offers a solution!
When females lactate, they release appeasing pheromones. These have a soothing, calming effect on their puppies. Research has shown that these same pheromones work on adult dogs too. Adaptil products contain a synthetic analog of these appeasing dog pheromones.
How the Adaptil Calm Collar works
This product is very easy to use and should be worn by your dog in the same way as a flea or tick collar. The dog's body temperature heats up the collar, causing the pheromones to be released and permeate into the dog's immediate environment. Since warmth is the essential for its effectiveness, it is important that the collar has a snug fit. If the collar is too loose, it may not transfer enough heat from your animal and will not have the desired effect. Under ideal conditions, the Adaptil Collar can last for up to 4 weeks. It is recommended that this product is used for 3 to 4 weeks for optimal results.
The Adaptil Collar is suitable for the treatment of symptoms of anxiety and stress, both indoors and outdoors, in puppies and adult dogs. These may include:
- Getting used to a new environment (new home, unknown visitors, kennels, etc.)
- The socialisation phase (up to about 3 months of age)
- Unknown or unpredictable situations
- Outdoor stressors such as traffic, other dogs, thunderstorms, fireworks, etc.
If your dog seems stressed, anxious or shows unwanted behaviour inside as well as outside, we recommend the Adaptil Collar to be used in combination with the Adaptil diffuser.
