Dogs are easily startled by ambient noises as they have sensitive ears. Anxious dogs may express themselves in various ways including excessive barking, house soiling, destructive behaviour and excessive licking. ADAPTIL (DAP) Dog Appeasing Pheromone Spray helps in comforting your dog during stressful situations by using a pheromone that mimics the function of pheromones found in the mother dog's milk. Such pheromones help puppies and even adult dogs in remaining calm and peaceful during stressful situations. As it comes in a spray form, it is very easy to administer the synthetic pheromones to your dog when it is needed the most.
