Cannot remember where I saw it - but has someone used a collar that releases the nice smells - NOT shocks or citrus, we would like to try something like that when Busta barks as the normal No command is not really working especially at 11pm at night and at 6.30am in the morning .... thanks.

We're using the DAP (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) collar on Gus. It works wonders! It releases the pheromones the mother dog gives off to calm her pups. There is also a plug-in diffuser you can you in your home. They make one for cats as well, Feliway, and that has helped our cats get use to having another dog in the house.
Also, the Gentle Leader head collar is great to curb barking, etc. It's really worked with Gus, you can tell a difference when he doesn't have it on.

I think that must be the DAP collar. Very much worth trying for dogs with some behaviour issues or anxiety!

PS I like the spelling furmoans rather than pheromones! :) It kind of applies! :lol:

I've ahd a hunt round on the net for you and it seems that these collars are only available in USA at the minute.

I think they would ship to UK though, have a look on http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FAUFF0/102-9782172-0086550

OR maybe you could use a bandana with some DAP spray on it?

I recently bought a DAP spray from www.vetuk.co.uk to spray in the car on the way to the vets
It worked a treat!!! and lasts about 2+ hours
(and much cheaper than anywhere else!)

I got the spray too...I started off doing the 8 -10 pumps on the bedding in the car cage, but it seems to use up the bottle very quickly :(

Instead I've been spraying a couple of pumps on TedBear's harness, this seems to work just as well!!

I got mine on Ebay - Annie that site is cheaper, but they charge a surcharge to us as we are a KW postcode...although we are still mainland :x
