Because dogs get stressed too! As the saying goes it’s a dog’s life and sometimes it couldn’t be more true… The modern day dog may have the luxuries that their ancestors could only dream of but that doesn’t mean that life isn’t stressful for them.
Stress in dogs can be caused by many factors, such as a new home, car travel, going on holiday or fireworks and other loud noises.
Signs of stress in dogs can go unnoticed, as most owners don’t recognise the behaviour for what it is, but if left untreated these signs can develop into learnt behavioural problems which are then much harder to correct. Your dog may withdraw from play, become nervous, pace, hide or shake.
Adaptil, formerly known as DAP, can help. It is the only non-prescription product proven to control signs of stress in dogs; helping to reassure and comfort them so that they are better able to cope with changes in their environment. Clinical trials have shown that Adaptil can have a positive effect on helping puppies settle into a new home and during puppy socialisation. In adult dogs is has been shown to help with coping during a stay in kennels, re-homing, car travel and during fireworks.
Adaptil is a synthetic copy of the natural dog appeasing pheromone released by the mother when she is feeding her pups.
Adaptil is easy to use and available in three convenient forms. As a diffuser, a discrete plug-in which releases the odourless pheromone into the home, a collar and a spray which can be applied directly to objects or areas.
