Having used a NatureCALM collar on my dog in the past, I know that they work very well for separation anxiety. Like a typical flea collar, the NatureCALM collar comes out the packaging with a powder like substance that wears off onto the dog over time. Upon receiving this collar and taking it out of its packaging all of the powder like substance (what I'm assuming is the calming pheromone) fell off of the collar in hard clumps. I decided to use the collar anyway, but it obviously did not work since the calming agent was no longer on the collar. Great product but I would suggest purchasing from another source.
Original collar seemed faulty, but manufacturer did send out a free replacement. Only on day 2, but I think it does make a difference as far as making him easier to calm down with his reactive barking, etc. Time will tell, but so far it does seem to help some.
Our dog Grissom is a rescue, so we aren't certain what causes some of his responses. But wearing this collar really did make a difference. It calms him, even if there is a reaction it is not as strong as it has been in the past. The product is so easy to use, so convenient, and yet subtle. We are ordering more of them today so we can keep this good thing going! It is not a miracle, but it works!
Definitely takes the edge off of my anxiety-ridden pup. Has a faint odor and some powder when first opened but quickly dissipates. My only serious issue is that it now only lasts 30 days although the package in the picture says 60.
Our dog has suffered from anxiety for many years now. We have tried many things. This collar definitely is good at "taking the edge" off. I think this one works better than others we tried and it lasts 2x as long. No collar will completely get rid of all of their anxiety but it definitely helps manage a great deal.
I couldnt take another sleepless night of thunderstorms. I brought my yorkie to my vet who recommended this collar. Although we havent had any storms since (2 days later), I can see a big difference in her general behavior. She ismuch more relaxed. I wont lie, I do have drugs to give her during the next thunderstorm, but I have a good feeling that this collar was a great place to start. Amazing.
