Veterinary-developed D.A.P. mimics the pheromone that the mother dog produces to calm and reassure her puppies. Dogs recognize these pheromones throughout life, as they appear to 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 four weeks, making it an ideal way for owners to help control stress related behavior, as well as to help socialize the animal with other dogs. With the creation of the D.A.P. Collar, the same innovative technology previously available as a diffuser or spray bottle is now able to go wherever the dog goes, making the treatment more consistent in modifying the dog's behavior.
The D.A.P. Collar is available in two sizes. The puppy/small dog collar fits necks up to 15 inches, and the medium/large dog collar fits necks up to 25 inches. Excess collar can be trimmed with no loss of efficacy.
