The Adaptil Collar will help control or prevent fear related signs in puppies and adult dogs.

It can be used for events happening both inside and outside the home such as:

• Adjusting to a new environment (new home, strangers, kennels)
• Socialisation period
• Novel and unpredictable situations
• Fear related reactions expressed outside the home (traffic, other dogs, thunderstorms, gunshots, etc...)

Combining the Collar with a Diffuser may provide optimal results for dogs showing indoor and outdoor fears.

The new and improved collar contains a higher % of pheromones (5% instead of 2.5% in the previous collar).

Lack of routine, long distance travel, family in the house and loud noises such as Christmas crackers or over New Year fireworks can tip them over the edge. Adaptil will naturally help to reassure your pet in these challenging situations and create a more relaxed environment for them. Dog collars or ADAPTIL collars are effective natural ways to help your dog cope with new and fearful situations. Unlike the diffusers, this dog ADAPTIL collar will always stay with your dog and last up to 4 weeks, giving your pet dog a natural feeling of being safe. Useful for the introduction of new puppy, puppy socialization, going on walks, dog boarding and dog grooming, thunderstorm season, fireworks and gunshots and fear of travelling. ADAPTIL collars help prevent behaviour problems, facilitate learning and training, make travelling more comfortable, facilitate socialization, especially in puppy classes and help calm your pet dog in hospital & boarding kennels.

Holidays are great fun for the family however they can sometimes be difficult for your beloved pet. Many owners notice their pets behaving differently when the family prepares to go on holiday such as acting withdrawn. If your dog is lucky enough to come on holiday with you they can sometimes find travelling and settling into holiday homes difficult. Many dogs will pant, whine, and tremble etc. during car travel. Using an Adaptil Collar or Spray will help prevent or reduce this behaviour. For helpful advice about travelling with your dog download our top tips!  If your dog is going into kennels, consider an Adaptil Collar. While kennels do their upmost to keep the dogs happy and stimulated the change in environment can still be stressful for your dog (strange noises, change in routine, and separation from owners). The positive effect Adaptil has on kennel stress is so great that they are widely used by UK rescue organisations including the Dogs Trust.

Adaptil help dogs overcome fears and stress and ease the fear of travel.
What causes dogs to bark excessively, whine and tear up the house when left alone?

Dogs are social animals and can act out destructive behaviours due to separation anxiety. Dogs that suffer from separation anxiety exhibit undesirable behaviours associated with stress, fear and anxiety, such as restlessness, excessive whining and barking, and adult destructive chewing and house soiling.

What types of situations can cause a dog stress?
Separation Anxiety: physical separation from the owner/pet guardian to whom it is attached.
New people/things: moving or major changes in the household, remodelling or redecorating, new pieces of furniture.
Fear/phobias: thunderstorms, lightening, fireworks.
Temporary changes: being transported, hospitalized or boarded.

What is Adaptil?
Developed for pet owners by veterinarians, Adaptil mimics the properties of the natural pheromones of the lactating female. Within three to five days after giving birth, the female generates pheromones that give their puppies a sense of well-being and reassurance, known as appeasing pheromones.

How can it calm dogs in stressful situations?
Pheromones are picked up and detected by an animal's sense of smell producing specific responses. By replicating this signal of comfort, Adaptil helps alleviate fear and stress related signs in the puppy and adult dog.

How long should it be used?
To address behaviour caused by temporary events, plug the diffuser in for 30 days. Each vial attached to a diffuser lasts approximately four weeks. Repeat as necessary.

How well does Adaptil work?
In clinical trials with Adaptil, destructive behaviour and vocalization (excessive barking and whining) were improved or resolved by 72 percent and 85 percent respectively. (Clinical trials were conducted by Ceva Sante Animale between November 1999 and November 2000, and were under the specific direction of Dr. Patrick Pageat.)

Does it have any effect on cats?
Adaptil is a chemical copy of the canine appeasing pheromones in lactating females. The pheromones are species-specific and should not have any effect on cats. The product has not been tested on cats.

What does it smell like?
Adaptil has no smell and is odourless to humans when dry.

Is it a sedative?
No, it is a solution that helps calm and reassure puppies and adult dogs.

Should any precautions be taken with pets and children?
Proper product use will not harm children, adults or pets. Plug diffusers into electric sockets in an open area most frequented by the dog. Do not place behind furniture.

How is it used?
Adaptil is an easy-to-use "plug-in" diffuser that consists of an electrical plug-in unit and disposable (30-day) bottle that will deliver the pheromone 24 hours a day. It continuously releases the active ingredient into the dog's environment and allows trouble-free treatment in a 650-square-foot area for approximately four weeks.

Adele
I rehomed a Golden Retriever in March who had been used as a breeding bitch on a puppy farm in Ireland. As you can imagine, she was extremely anxious. The first night we had her she wouldn`t stop shaking and hid in her basket. The only way we got her out was when the family dog visited and she followed him outside. The first week was heart-breaking as she wouldn`t look at you, hid in corners and did her best to be invisible. She improved vastly over the next month but her nightmares were continuing and she

I bought this for a car journey as my dog hates getting in the car, but we really wanted to take her on vacation with us. After reading the one review I was hopefull. Unfortunately it made absolutely no difference. She still found the journey extremely uncomfortable. Luckily after her first four hours in the car and realising she got to play in the sea afterwards she eventually settled somewhat. I don't think, however that it could possibly be attributed to the collar.

Mouse really hated being brushed and subsequently had big ratties on his ears and back legs, growled and aggressive behaviours ceased when collar fitted. Know when it's wearing out as he grumbles again.
