A synthetic copy of the 'dog appeasing pheromone' proven to help prevent or reduce canine stress and help dogs be more responsive to behavioural therapy and training. Adaptil® has been developed to help support dogs through a range of challenging situations that they may face during their life.
Available as a collar, diffuser and spray to help puppies learn during the socialisation period and help adult dogs settle in stressful or unpredictable environments.
The Adaptil Collar is easy to use. The dog's body temperature warms the collar and encourages the diffusion of pheromones into the local environment. It is vital the Adaptil Collar is in close contact with the dog's skin at all times. Collar is ideal for:
- Puppy socialisation
Two sizes of collar are:
- Puppy/small dogs (fits neck up to 37.5xm)
- Medium/large dogs (fits neck up to 62.5cm).
Each collar lasts 4 weeks and can be replaced as required.
How do I fit an ADAPTIL® collar?
Place a finger in the plastic loop situated on 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
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.
