As the holiday season draws near, that means the usual influx of guests into your home, decorations going up around the house and without a doubt… Plenty of stress. If you’re like me and have a furry friend around the house, this time of the year can mean quite a bit of stress for them too. Often this leads to unusual behavior such as chewing on items, scratching furniture, howling, whining or whimpering. Your dog doesn’t understand that the changes in his or her environment are temporary.
Thankfully now there is a great set of products to help deal with these problems. For the past month I’ve sampled some of the Comfort Zone® products. Using their patented pheromone formulas, they help relieve the stress that can accumulate in your dog during this stressful time. Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® helps to calm your dog and soothes their behavior by allowing them to feel comfortable when they might not otherwise feel that way.
Comfort Zone® products are 95% effective at reducing scratching and urine marking for cats, and also help reduce excessive barking and chewing in dogs. It really helps to relieve the pressure for the dogs and prevents them from acting out. It helps them feel safe and accepted. No more destructive behavior from my dog Clinton after having this product around.
The pheromone is either in the air, via a simple diffuser that you plug into the wall (almost like the popular air fresheners) that is odorless to humans but dogs can detect it. The pheromone sends a signal to the dog’s nervous system and helps them feel safe and secure, thus preventing them from doing unsightly behavior. It manages their stress which can help you feel better too as we all want to make sure our pets feel loved.
Whether it’s the holiday visitors, the changes in their environment, thunderstorms, loud noises like fireworks (which always seem to get my pets quite upset) or simply traveling to around, Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) products can help combat the problem. It’s currently available at pet specialty stores including PetSmart and Petco as well as many local pet stores. You can purchase the product online as well.
Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® is recommended for 90 days use to see the full effects, but I noticed positive changes in behavior within the 30 days I tried the product out. Be sure to visit their website or Facebook page for more information and see if it’s right for you.
