Pheromones emitted by animals through their skin and glands are natural chemicals that help them to communicate with others of the same species. When your dog or puppy senses the pheromone, he feels secure and comfortable, reducing his fear reactions and his urge to act out destructively through chewing, excessive barking or house soiling. No word on whether or not it will scare your cats.
There’s a new product from Comfort Zone that uses the power of pheromones to help deal with your dog’s behavior. I’ve not tried it, but the science behind it makes sense.
The product is available both as a diffuser you plug in, similar to an air freshener, and in a spray bottle for isolated problems that you might have around your dog’s crate. They also suggest you might want to take the spray bottle with you to calm your dog when you travel.
Let me know what you think if you try this product.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
