The Secret to Happy Dogs

Adaptil is an easy-to-use and convenient product line 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.

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.

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, kennelling/boarding, changes in the home environment and the composition of the family.

The comforting message in Adaptil® has been clinically proven to increase focus during training in puppies and adult dogs, and reduce stress which can lead to inappropriate behaviours in our companion dogs.

Even small changes in your home and your daily routine can upset your dog and increases their stress.

Stress can lead to unhappy behaviours such as cowering from people, hiding away, excessive barking and whimpering, soiling in the home, destroying household items.

Using Adaptil will help maintain the scent that gives your dog or puppy the feeling of security and reduce the stress that they experience.

Ideally start to use a diffuser a couple of weeks before stressful situation.  Bu the collar gets to work in half an hour and the spray in 15 minutes.
