DAP Electric Diffuser
If you've ever been scared by loud, unexpected noises, know that your pet is much more sensitive to them than you are. The ADAPTIL Diffuser contains DAP (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) that will come to your dog's rescue. If your dog seems to cause problems and barks frequently without any apparent cause, it does not necessarily mean he is demonstrating his bravery-it could be a hint that he's fearful or anxious.
The DAP electric diffuser imitates the pheromone present in a mother dog's milk that is designed to appease the confused puppies. This pheromone calms and soothes the puppies, helping them adapt to new environments. Even after growing up, dogs may still experience the fear of encountering new people, places, climatic phenomena, and other unexpected situations. Fortunately, this pheromone has the same calming effect on adult dogs as it does on puppies. By mimicking the appeasement pheromone, the diffuser relieves the dogs' stress, anxiety, and fear, allowing them to relax.
The diffuser calms and soothes dogs during fireworks, thunderstorms, visits by strangers, or moves to a new house or environment; it also assists puppies in adjusting to new environments. Using the DAP diffuser will allow your pet and your neighbors to coexist more peacefully.
Coverage Area: 500-700 sq. ft. 50-70m²
One vial lasts approximately four weeks
Female dogs secrete pheromones that comfort and reassure their nursing puppies. These "appeasement" pheromones have the same calming effect on adult dogs. DAP. mimics these appeasement pheromones to reduce or eliminate stress in dogs of all ages.

Hobbes is reactive and gets over excited easily. He used to bark at cars when we went on walks and would stare out the window all day barking at people walking past. We joined a class based on the book Control Unleashed: Creating a Focused and Confident Dog, which teaches dogs how to calm themselves. Despite great progress, he was still having some troubles, including lunging and growling at people when he was scared. Our instructor recommended we start using DAP in addition to a Thundershirt and calming music. The improvement over the first couple weeks was so gradual that it was hardly noticeable. Overall he was calmer and happier, no longer barking as much or lunging at cars on walks. However, after 4 weeks when the diffuser ran out there was a distinct and abrupt worsening. He was on edge again and more apt to bark. When our refills arrived, he quickly calmed down.
Ivy had been an outgoing, playful dog until a month ago when she suddenly became scared of going outside after several days of skateboarders using our street to practice their moves. She hid all day long under the bed, and we had to carry her outside to go potty because she refused to go on her own. The vet started her on Prozac, and incidentally we started the DAP for Hobbes around the same time. After a month, she seemed to be getting better, more willing to come out and play. We weren't sure if this was due to the meds or the DAP. When the DAP ran out, she was suddenly back to hiding all day long and refusing to go outside. With the refill, she will now come out and play. She still has a long road to get back to her previous playful self, but it's an improvement.
With both dogs, we used a variety of training techniques and other comfort measures: Thundershirt Dog Anxiety Treatment, Large, Heather Grey,Through a Dog's Ear: Music to Calm Your Canine Companion, Volume 1.
Anyone who thinks that they can solve a dog's fear problem with one product without any training is going to be sorely disappointed. DAP can take the edge off of the fear so that training can be effective.
Update: They earned back a star, Super fast refund of the purchase price, including tax. So, there's that. Was disappointed the product arrived the way it did, because I was hoping it would calm my beagle's anxiety. But a lot of the pressure/frustration was eased that there was almost instant resolution.
