Adaptil® Collar with D.A.P. mimics the familiar pheromones dogs use to communicate comfort and safety. When used, it gives your dog a sense of security and helps reduce stress. Adapting to a new environment or unfamiliar situations such as visitors, veterinarian visits, new homes can be potentially stressful for most dogs and puppies. Sometimes these fears and worries can develop into phobias or stress-related conditions. The Adaptil® Collar has been proven to reduce destructive behaviors such as house soiling, barking/whining, excessive licking and more, which are often signs of stress. The collar is the best treatment to use during prolonged stress such as thunderstorms, boarding and traveling as it stays with your dog and lasts up to four weeks. Combining the Adaptil® Collar with the Comfort Zone® D.A.P. Diffuser may provide optimal results for dogs showing multiple fears in different situations.
