The Adaptil Collar contains effective pheromones that help to relax puppies and adult dogs in stressful situations. The pheromones used mimic those produced by a mother dog to calm and reassure her puppies as they grow and discover the world. Dogs recognise these pheromones throughout their life, meaning they can help to prevent stress-related behaviours not only in puppies and young dogs, but adult dogs too. The Adaptil Collar can be used to help tackle the following stress-related behaviours: Help promote learning during training and socialisation Help puppies or adult dogs settle in new homes Help dogs to cope with challenging situations such as: Staying in kennels Staying home alone Fireworks Visiting the vet Travelling in vehicles Night crying Christmas New Baby How to fit an Adaptil Collar: Fasten the collar around your dog’s neck and adjust to the appropriate size, allowing room for at least one finger between your dog’s neck and the collar.
