Description

Easy to use and convenient, the adaptil collar releases dog-appeasing pheromones constantly, even when the dog is outside, to keep it calm and relaxed in all environments. The dog’s body temperature and close contact warm the collar and encourages the diffusion of pheromones into the local environment. It is essential the Adaptil collar is in close contact with the dog’s skin at all times. Browse our range of calming behaviour products for dogs and other non-prescription medications.

These collars are ideal for puppy socialisation, travelling, kennelling, training, loud noises, and while staying at home alone. The Adaptil collar is available in two adjustable sizes: puppy/small dogs (fits neck up to 37.5cm) and medium/large dogs (fits neck up to 62.5cm).

Each collar lasts up to four weeks and can be replaced as required.

Adaptil also comes in express tablets and refills/sprays.

Product information

How do I fit an ADAPTIL collar?

  1. Place a finger in the plastic loop situated in the inside of the collar close to the buckle
  2. Using this loop pull the thin plastic to uncoil the collar
  3. Fasten the collar
  4. Place over your dog’s head to tie loosely around the neck
  5. Tighten the collar to fit snugly with your dog’s skin
  6. You should be able to place no more than two fingers between collar and dog’s skin
  7. Ensure the collar is fixed inside the buckle
  8. Cut off the excess portion of the collar

Note regarding puppies: as the puppy grows, it’s important to regularly adjust the fit of the collar to make sure it’s not too tight.

The Adaptil Collar is proven to work on all breeds of dog, as long as it is fitted correctly.

The appeasing pheromone is released almost immediately, However, it is worth noting that the collar will not work when it is wet but diffuses again as soon as it’s dry.

If your dog wears another collar, it is important to ensure the collar stays in contact with the skin. Please note it cannot be used to attach a leash.

Do not use the collar on dogs with extensive skin lesions.

Do not open the protective pouch until the product is ready for use.

I ordered these so if fireworks went off while my dogs were on a walk, it would at least have a bit of a calming effect until they got home

Willow is a nervous dog at the best of times and fireworks make it worse. I’ve seen a positive change in her behaviour since using the collar.

55 Works wonders
Verified Purchase

We buy the collars regularly for our dog as she benefits quite a bit from them. She is more relaxed whilst out walking (she was nervous of everything when we first got her) and generally more chilled with one than she is without

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Adaptil Collar for Dogs, including answers from our team.

Barking dogs

Heather

Would the collar help a rescue dog that barks alot to be quieter ?

  • VioVet Staff

This collar helps calm your dog. If the barking is related to stress or excessive excitement then it may help reduce this. However if it is a behavioural problem then you will still need to train the behaviour out of your dog.

Can I continue to give my dog Yucalm when he wears this collar?

Helen Whiting (whiting157)

  • VioVet customer since 2012
  • From: Wiltshire, United Kingdom

Nervous collie, has Yucalm which helps slightly, but could the collar be used in conjunction with this?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes Adaptil works differently to oral calmers, like YuCalm. Both can be given together safely.

Size of collar

mo

I have a cocker spaniel. Please can you advise me as to which size collar I need to purchase as I can find no recommendations on your site.

Do I have to keep it on continually

Glenys O'Hagan

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Bridgend , United Kingdom

Do I have to keep it on continually as I am putting my dog on Yucalm and want to use the collar when I take her out

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Glenys,

Each collar lasts up to 4 weeks and can be replaced as required. You can leave it on until it is no longer effective. If your dog wears another collar, make sure the Adaptil collar remains in contact with the skin and is not used to attach a leash to.

I hope this helps.

Does it work

emma

my dog suffers really bad with separation axity he won't stop howling when left alone its so bad i can't leave him alone 4 longer then an hr as my neighbors complain will this work as im all out of ideas to help him

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Emma,

Thank you for your question.

It may help but for severe separation anxiety the best advice would be to consult a canine behaviourist. The Adaptil collar is designed to help reduce anxious behaviours but may work best in combination with the Adaptil diffuser/tablets too. We have a blog on separation anxiety which you might find useful: https://www.viovet.co.uk/blog/p129-Separation_Anxiety.

Hope that helps,

VioVet.

Hi Natalie,
