Worst item I have ever purchased
from Leavenworth, Ks06/18/2012
I have a 4 yr. old Blue Heeler, and he is wound up 24/7 to say the least. I purchased this collar to calm him down during the severe thunder stoms we have here in Kansas. Poo has had the collar on for almost 4 weeks and we have has a few storms in that time, and your colar had ZERO effect on him. He was still a nervous wreck. Buying your collas was a waste of my money......On your rating above it does NOT go low enough...This item is worthless...
I bought this DAP collar upon the recommendation of my dog behaviorist -- my 20 month rescue Sammie has major "people reactivity" (i.e., she hates strangers!)
Believe we are seeing results after one week! Using both the collar and the diffusser seem to really help my two year old OES with his anxiety issues. We will try the car next week and see if we also get some good results.
It seems to help.

I read other reviews and decided to give it a try as there seemed to be mixed reviews. Our vet recommended this collar to help with anxiety related behaviors for our 2 year old terrier mix. After about 2 days of wearing the collar we noticed she is a little bit less anxious. She still jumps up when she gets really anxious but it seems to take more for her to get to that point. We will be traveling on a long road trip and we plan to ensure she has a fresh collar for the trip. If you are on the fence about it, I would say try it to see if it will help. I think the collar has had a positive effect on our anxious little pup.

The collar seemed to calm my Alaskan Malamute within a short period of time. It's only been on for 2 weeks so I'm not sure of the month long effectiveness as advertised. I'm also using the D.A.P. spray in tandem with the collar. I'm happy so far. I would imagine it would be more effective on a short haired breed.
Was not happy with collar

I was not happy with this collar. It did not work at all.

They need to redesign the fastener on this collar. And the instructions. I had to tape it together. I guess the phermone worked, but I couldn't keep it on my dog long enough to be sure.
So far, So good

My German Shorthaired Pointer, 4 years old, who has been properly gun trained, is terrified of fireworks & thunder storms. I was skeptical about one of these collars, and this is the only brand I have used so far, but I definitely see a difference. He is aware of the thunder, looks up and is now sometimes barking at it, but he doesn't shake like he used to. He would pant with his tongue hanging out and shake from head to toe even after we could no longer hear the thunder. Now I notice that he looks up, is aware of the thunder, but doesn't pant or shake. And when he barks/growls at it, I tell him he's a good boy. Not that I want to promote barking behavior, but it seems he has more confidence and the few barks is better than him almost having a heart attack. I would definitely recommend trying it for yourself. I'm sure we've all wasted more money than this on our dogs. Now I wait to see what happens with the fireworks.
Did not do a thing for it. Should have a powder on it but had not. Not sure if the product was faulty
Best Buy I could make
This collar really works. It has calmed my dog and made her much happy. She is not pacing the house and nervous when the wind blows or hears loud noises. I will continue using this product. I recommend this to anyone who has a dog that is afraid of noise.
