Dog behaviour manageable with pheromones - trial

A pheromone-producing collar may provide the answer for anxious owners of anxious dogs.
Thought not yet available in New Zealand, synthetic dog appeasing pheromones (DAP) have been trialled here.

Professor of Veterinary Ethnoloy at Massey University, Dr Kevin Stafford says the infuser produced good results on Kiwi dogs.

“The use of DAP can help settle puppies into new homes, assist in training adult dogs, manage fear of objects and people, and decrease stress and barking,” he said.

The synthetically reproduced pheromone is worn in the form of a collar, or distributed through an infuser in the home, to help manage fear and stress in puppies and adult dogs.
