This collar offers continual release of the same natural appeasing pheromone emmited by mothers to reassure their puppies. Dogs recognize these pheromones throughout life and they have a relaxing effect on both the young and adults. Activated by the dog's body heat, the D.A.P. collar releases pheromone over 4 weeks making it an ideal way for owners to help control stress related behavior, as well as letting their pet socialize with other dogs.The collar is available in 2 sizes, the puppy/small dog collar fits necks up to 14" and the medium/large fits necks up to 24". Studies showed puppies that wore the collar showed improvement in learning and a reduction in fear and anxiety levels. The collar also helped dogs cope with new situations such as adjusting to new pets, visitors and strange environments, as well as thunderstorms and fireworks.

Top Customer Reviews
Solution: I was desperate, and would have bought anything at any price. I tried the DAP collar for small dogs. Read the reviews carefully, concluded that it worked -- IF it worked -- after ten days, two weeks, a month. . . Put it on her. That night we got the double whammy: Fourth of July AND major thunderstorms following in the wee hours of the morning.
At four a.m., after watching her sleep through the fireworks, I sat in the bathroom (her favorite place to cower during the storms) and watched incredulously as she played with my bare toes, her tail wagging -- and thunder boomed steadily outside. I am stunned, grateful, a devoted customer FOREVER.
I don't want to call this a negative review. I know that a lot of people love this product and swear it totally works. However, the D.A.P. collar simply did not work for my dog. I placed it on my pup’s neck a full seven days before Fourth of July fireworks. (According to the reviews, the collar should be worn at least a week before the dreaded event.) As usual, it was an anxiety-filled night and the entire family could not calm him down. The next morning, I was pretty annoyed. I could not even tell if this “dog appeasing pheromone” made even the slightest difference. I love my dog and I’ll buy anything that will help him when he’s feeling nervous or scared. The bottom line is, I paid $20.57 for this product and I feel like I wasted my money. If I had a chance to try this collar again, I would make sure that my dog begins wearing this collar three weeks before the Fourth of July. However, I do not think it would be wise for us to spend another $20 on this product. According to my dog’s veterinarian, the D.A.P. collar does not work on all dogs. I’m fairly certain that’s what happened here. Having said that, I will continue to explore other methods of calming and relieving my dog’s stress. And I will continue to spend money on any product that will bring him any relief. That is what we do for our dogs, right?
