Sophie the dog  Janet Tobiassen Crosby DVMI recently tried out the DAP (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) calming collar for dogs on my own dog, Sophie. She loves people and is generally a calm, well-behaved dog. This photo is of Sophie on a regular day, before trying DAP. She is an easy-going dog. Except when there are loud noises. Then she is trembling, panting, whining and trying to hide in small spaces. We also deal with mild separation anxiety.

I wasn't sure DAP would work, but gave it a two week trial. Here is my review of the DAP dog collar.

The Dogs Trust ran a trial looking at kennel stress and the effect of DAP. They found it was so good they now fit one to every dog that comes in.
