Review for 3 Pack ADAPTIL On-The-Go Collar for Dogs (Large)
February 5, 2017
The Adaptil collar is easy to use and works in tandem with the Adaptil diffuser. My goldendoodle is an anxious dog. Not sure why. We're doing what we can to build his self-esteem. The collar can be quite pricey locally. To find online at a great cost point was fantastic! Thank you for stocking the product and getting it to us quickly. Product, Service, and Shipping rocks!

Enormous help with our rescue
January 5, 2017
We adopted our rescue and she has separation anxiety. This collar has really been helpful and we will continue to use them as long as she is part of our family....she is a happy, playful dog when using these....when we tried not using them, she reverted back to her shy, anxious self. Very grateful these exist.

Review for 3 Pack ADAPTIL On-The-Go Collar for Dogs (Large)
December 7, 2015
I like the diffuser but I like the collars even better. Paulie's stress behavior changes for the worse toward the end of the collar's "life". I recommended the collar to a friend who rescued a dog from the same horrible place from which Paulie came. Her dog had suddenly begun escaping from her very well fenced back yard. As soon as she started using the Adaptil collar, her dog's escaping behavior stopped!

Adaptil collar
September 9, 2015
I believe that this collar has eased my almost 2 year old husky mix out of her e-collar and into the unframed world again. She had created a sore spot on her front leg and was paying too much attention to it. I used an e-collar until the spot healed and then went to the Adaptil collar immediately afterward. It is so hard to tell what might be natural maturity and what might be influenced by the phermones, however I do think it has an effect. She quit tearing up her bed too!

Adaptil DAP collar - worked wonders for us
August 10, 2015
This is a non-drug product that is meant for dogs who suffer from raised levels of anxiety. We purchased the DAP collar which are made of plastic impregnated with the pheromone that a female dog releases when she is lactating and needs to calm down her puppies. The same pheromone also calms down other dogs in the vicinity of a lactating female. We noticed a marked difference in our dog's stress indicators within a day of using the collar. The collars are not cheap (running from $25 to $50 per collar) but if your dogs are always on edge and you don't want to use drugs to calm them down, this collar is worth a try. My suggestion would be to get the first collar from your vet, along with instructions about how to best use it and what to look for to notice a difference in behavior. If you are happy with the first collar, then I suggest buying any further collars on-line (they only last for a month). EntirelyPets shipped promptly and the product we received was exactly as ordered. We are very pleased.

Works Well

Collars seem to work fine for thunderstorms that are not right on top of you. Really close strikes still make the dog a bit jumpy. However still worth the money for what it does.

The adaptil made no difference in my dogs behavior. She is still frightened of everything.

This collar is totally useless. I got it for my hyper Lab - it did nothing but make him itch! I shortened it and tried it on my equally hyper mixed breed female - Nada, Zip, Nothing. I am VERY disappointed in this product.

Takes the edge off
March 9, 2015
This product was recommended by my dog's behavioral specialist (doggy shrink) to help her calm down and be more satisfied (in addition to Prozac). It does seem to take the edge off and I can tell when the collar has passed its expiration of a month. I'll use anything that works to make our living arrangement better and be able to keep both of my dogs.

Good Value
January 22, 2015
Comparable to a local purchase made at a vet clinic, but less expensive. Been using the product for almost three months. Since we noticed a marked improvement in our Doberman's behavior in the first 24 hours of her wearing it, we were sold. Next, I'm going to try replacing sooner than four weeks. I see a decline in its effectiveness after a week based on how she behaves in weekly dog training, so it could be other factors, of course. We'll tweak the replacement schedule until we find what works best.

Not so good
July 28, 2014
The clasp on the collar was cheap and broke almost immediately. I drilled a couple holes through it and tied it back together but it stretched to the point that it was no longer snug enough. I am not sure if the formula works or not, perhaps the sprays might work, I just don't know.

Consistent calming assistance
June 4, 2014
My 10 yo Lab is afraid of anything that remotely sounds like thunder or gun shots. I use a number of methods for reducing anxiety, but he has been wearing these collars for a few years now and they are the BEST for consistent calming and taking the "edge" off. He was refusing to leave the house for walks or rides due to anxiety. The collars are on him, helping at all times. They do take a few days to have a full effect, but consistent wearing definitely helps.

Adaptil Works For My Dog
May 27, 2014
My collie mix has some general anxiety and is sensitive to engine noises and thunder. He has been wearing an Adaptil collar for two months and appears to be more calm. It has helped with engine noises and thunder but not totally taken away his anxiety about these two things. But I feel that the collar has lessened his general anxiety and I will continue to use it.

Work well ?
November 8, 2013
The collars seem to work well, but my Smooth-Coated Collie, who is my Service Dog of 7.5 years and who is now 9 yrs. old, has only recently become afraid of the noises in our apartment building, and I don't see too much improvement. He has always been the most chill dog, but even with the collar, he jumps up each time someone opens their mailbox, or a door opens and closes. It upsets me because he is so unhappy now. But I might try the wall unit spray in conjunction with the collars.

Worth every penny!

My vet recommended the Adaptil products when my Lab had some real issues with a Golden puppy that we adopted. Since I have 3 dogs, it was recommended each have a collar. I can honestly say, the Lab, while still somewhat jealous, is much calmer, the Golden puppy much less upset when crated, and my older Golden with the chronic anxiety has definately become calmer. Used in combination with the spray, it has made life much easier and less stressful in our house.

These were recommended by a dog behaviorist and are 100% worth the purchase. They turn an otherwise frequently agitated dog into a content pet.

Although I tried the collar on my dog, Maggie May, for two weeks, I saw absolutely no improvement in her behavior. For that reason I mailed the collars back today. Oh well, it was worth a try!

Worth it-

I have been using these collars on my Aussie who has had obsessive licking issues. Since the collar she has stopped. And she's also a much happier dog. It took about a week for me to notice the changes, but they are awesome, and have worked for my dog.

I found the adaptil collar made a dramatic difference to my dogs anxiety. She is a lot calmer and settled and now only barks to alert us to people passing by instead of any little noise.

Brings peace back to the household!
November 5, 2012
Initially skeptical about the effectiveness of these collars, I decided to try them. With 7 dogs at the house, feeding time can get a little 'ramped up'! One dog in particular, Lucky, is especially fond of his food and impatient while we prepare all the different bowls. Oftentimes he would charge the other dogs while waiting, be very vocal, and create 'drama' twice daily at this time. We purchased the collars, and within a few days, noticed a 'calmness' about him, and about the household in general. We can definitely tell when he's nearing the end of the month, and choose to replace the collar at the 3 week mark. Since we've done this, for the past 6 months, 'scuffles' have been kept to a minimum and the household is much more calm and manageable overall. THANK YOU for making a difference for all 7 of my beloved dogs (through ONE of them wearing the collar), and for keeping the energy of the house at an acceptable level!

I used the collar on a "broken" dog. I did not notice any difference in his level of anxiety. Might work on a less broken dog though.

We have an alpa cocker spaniel who tends to attack our other two cockers if they invade her "space" as she decides it to be. Since we have used the collars she is much more settled & leaves the other girls alone much more

Not as good...
June 5, 2012
The new DAP collar is simply not as effective as the original. My dog's behavior is spotty. She is calm one moment and stressed out the next. If I could find the original, I would buy them up! These just do not work as well.

I'm a believer
May 2, 2012
I'm a born sceptic,but I believe in this product. My hyper rescue girl starts to get edgy on day 31 of wearing her collar. Change it and she calms down. I can see her getting wound up, look at the calendar, and realize it's been a month in the old collar. Don't know if it works for all dogs, but give it a try if having trouble with fear aggression or other behavior issues.

I'm happy with the way this product performed. What I am not happy about is how difficult it is to get off once you put it on. The instructions say it shouldn't get wet. My dogs swim almost everyday in the summer, and like to play in the hose when the pool isn't available. The part that holds the collar to the clasp is pretty flimsy. It breaks when I applied enough force to remove the collar. I would like to recommend to the manufacturer they consider making the collar easier to take on and off. The other reason the collar needed to be removed is my dog is involved in agility. Collars must be removed to run. Besides for the difficulty with the off/on part, I liked how it worked.

March 27, 2012
The DAP collar has been a life saver for our dog --literally! She has many social anxiety issues and was just not a happy dog--dogs should be happy!!--and the DAP collar has helped her be more calm and relaxed. Great price--MUCH cheaper than buying from the vet --especially in multi pack.
By laura
very good product
January 21, 2012
my vet recommended d.a.p. collar for my dog's noise sensitivity and, while this isn't a miracle cure, it definitely makes a difference. it started working gradually but when it stopped working after 4 or 5 weeks (as it is supposed to), i noticed the difference immediately, so i got her a new one. now i keep a constant supply. i'm combining this with counter-conditioning and desensitization, so i hope she'll get to a point at which she won't need it anymore. in the meantime, though, this is definitely worth the money and i absolutely recommend it!
D.A.P. Collar
January 19, 2012
Good Purchase. Our Suzy is a Shepherd/Chow and high strung. In addition, she will not settle down when there is a storm. She has a tendency to follow us from room to room. With the D.A.P. collar, she is able to relax more-still doesn't like storms but will lie still next to someone till it is over. It doesn't make her slow or lethargic, but just helps to relieve her tension. She is still very active. I recommend the collar to relax your four legged friend.

The D.A.P. collars have made a tremendous difference when traveling with my dog. I have tried EVERYTHING else and these are the only things that make traveling tolerable. The only concern I have is paying $25 - $35 for shipping to Canada when it costs Entirely Pets $4.56.

We have a mixed breed dog we found as a puppy along the roadside. He has a true Jekyll and Hyde personality but the D.A. P. collars have helped immensely. Your prices are very competitive and we received the collars in two days. Thank you!
