Adaptil is for reassuring dogs during new experiences and fearful situations often associated with causing stress in our canine companions. The Adaptil range offers help in many situations, both indoors and outdoors, as well as for the short and long-term. Many situations can be perceived as stressful by dogs, such as loud noises (fireworks, thunderstorms, domestic appliances), going to the vet, travelling by car, staying home alone, kenneling/boarding, changes in the home environment and the composition of the family.
The special scent (odourless to people and other animals) that Adaptil utilises is a replication of the pheromone that mother dogs naturally emit to their puppies just after birth, to comfort them and reinforce the attachment between the mother and her offspring. This pheromone can still have the same calming effect on adult dogs in stressful situations, when released through Adaptil products.
The Adaptil Collar is easy to use and convenient as it releases the dog appeasing pheromone constantly (even when the dog is outside). The dog’s body temperature and close contact warm the collar and encourages the diffusion of pheromones into the local environment. It is essential the Adaptil Collar is in close contact with the dog’s skin at all times.
The Adaptil Collar is particularly ideal for the following situations:
Puppy socialisation Travelling (for dogs travelling often or for long journeys and/or going to new destinations such as on holiday, moving home etc.) Crating/kenneling/boarding Training Loud noises (thunderstorms or fireworks), especially for dogs living mostly outdoors and who cannot be kept home during such events Staying home alone (especially for outdoor dogs).
Two sizes of adjustable collars are available:
puppy/small dogs (fits neck up to 37.5cm) medium/large dogs (fits neck up to 62.5cm). Each collar lasts up to 4 weeks and can be replaced as required.
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.
