Within 2 weeks of putting it on her, I had increased the amount of time she could spend alone from 30 minutes to over 4 hours using gradual separation techniques and the DAP collar. This was remarkable! Not only is she calm while I am gone, she is no longer displaying overly-excited behaviors when I return.
I am very pleased with the effectiveness of this collar and would recommend it. It is important to remember that you still must work with your dog on separation issues. The collar does not 'fix" the problem. It is a tool for use during the behavior modification period that will help the dog calm itself more effectively.
I have a rescued year old Alaskan Malamute, who is petrified of me and anyone else. I built her a pen within my fenced yard and all she did was run in circles, for as long as 6 hours, when I let her. It was so sad to watch her. Her foster mom mentioned DAP, and I must admit, I didn't think much about it working, but figured it would be worth a try.
Within 4 days, I noticed her behavior changing. She started pacing less and less and now, after less than 2 weeks, she's actually taking naps in her pen. I thought maybe it was because she was getting used to me and the cabin, but my gut is telling me otherwise. I'm ordering more collars and also the diffuser. I don't want to take any chances of this poor girl reverting to her former self.
She's outside sleeping on the deck right now. That wouldn't have been feasible 2 weeks ago. I'm not saying it will work for everything. It hasn't helped her accept me yet, but it has definitely calmed her down. I'm very grateful for that.
I'm eager to see how it works on July 4th and through a thunderstorm. She wears it all the time and I think it's helping her find herself.
SHORT VERSION: DAP collars work great on anxious pets, but are not enough on their own with very fearful dogs.
We used the collar consistently for three months, changing it every twenty-eight (28) to thirty (30) days. I thought I saw some subtle differences in our puppy. He seemed less sensitive to noise. But it was very hard to quantify it, as he is unpredictable. One day, he could be above threshold without knowing why, and other days, he could be fine. Was it the collar? We weren't sure.
After the three month period, we stopped using the collar. Since we weren't sure if it was even working, it didn't feel like a risk to stop using it. We also thought it might be a good experiment.
Within three to six days of discontinuing use, he became almost impossible to work with. His barked and lunged at everything, leaving us unable to pinpoint the trigger half the time. We took him hiking, and within seconds of leaving the car, we heard several gunshots in the distance. We live near a firing range, and he has become desensitized to the sound of gunshots. That day, he became so unhinged and scared that we had to turn right around and put him back in the car before we even started our walk.
It took a few of these types of instances to realize that the only difference was the lack of DAP collar.
I immediately purchased a new DAP collar and put it back on him.
Within a day, he became calmer, much less sound sensitive. We could take him on walks again.
But it took NOT using it for us to see that it worked.Read more ›
After finding this collar & related information about it on the internet in addition to the references on this site, we immediately ordered one in an attempt to get through her barriers in a different way. To our delight, after only 1 week of wearing the collar, she is a totally different dog. Calmer, quieter, sweeter. The difference is AMAZING! We have started to work with her on basic obedience commands and she is responding.
I highly recommend this collar.
