Adaptil collars, spray, tablets and diffusers are proven solutions to help puppies and dogs learn, settle, travel and cope with stressful situations, such as visiting kennels. Adaptil is a synthetic copy of the natural comforting pheromone released by a mother dog to reassure her puppies. Your pet's behaviour is developed through socialisation and training, during this time it is important that they experience as many things as possible to ensure they avoid the fear response. Adaptil helps during this stage by creating a positive experience which makes for well behaved dogs.
New homes can be daunting for new puppies as they are full or new smells, noises, people and objects which they are not used to, and haven't experienced before. Being separated from their mother also creates a stressful situation as they can no longer rely on her for comfort and reassurance.

Adaptil spray, diffuser, tablets or collars can help to keep your pet calm during unpredictable situations.
