About the product Adaptil Collar
The Adaptil Dog Appeasing Pheromone Collar (DAP Collar) offers a natural and convenient solution to your dog's stress or worry, helping comfort and reassure puppies and adult dogs in a vast range of situations and preventing or reducing stress-related inappropriate behaviours.
The natural design is scientifically proven. Lactating bitches produce an appeasing pheromone which provides reassurance to puppies, helping them feel safe and secure when encountering new experiences and unknown environments. Research has proven that a synthetic analogue of the dog appeasing pheromone will also provides reassurance and comfort to puppies and dogs of all ages.
The Adaptil Collar is useful for many purposes including the introduction of new puppies, puppy socialization, boarding, grooming, walking, gunshots, fireworks, new babies, Christmas and the fear of travelling.

How to use
Place a finger in the plastic loop situated in the inside of the collar close to the buckle. Using this loop pull the thin plastic to uncoil the collar. Fasten the collar
Place over your dogs head to tie loosely around the neck. Tighten the collar to fit snugly with your dog’s skin. You should be able to place no more than 2 fingers between collar and dog’s skin. Ensure the collar is fixed inside the buckle and cut off the excess portion of the collar.
Note regarding puppies: as the puppy grows, it’s important to regularly adjust the fit of the collar to make sure it’s not too tight. The Adaptil Collar is proven to work on all breeds of dog, as long as it is fitted correctly.
The appeasing pheromone is released almost immediately. The Collar will not work when it is wet, but diffuses again as soon as it’s dry. If your dog wears another collar, it is important to ensure the Adaptil Collar stays in contact with the skin.
Please note the Adaptil collar cannot be used to attach a leash. Do not use the collar on dogs with extensive skin lesions. Do not open the protective pouch until the product is ready for use.
Two sizes of adjustable collars are available, Puppy/Small dogs (fits neck up to 37.5cm) and Medium/Large dogs (fits neck up to 62.5cm).
