Additional Details

HAZARDS TO ANIMALS: Some caged birds are known to have sensitive respiratory systems (in particular Psittacines: parrots, budgerigar, etc.). Therefore, as a precaution, we recommend plugging in the diffuser in a different room. HAZARDS TO HUMANS: Do not plug-in the diffusers under shelves or behind doors, curtains or furniture.

    Hi all! I have a ~3y/o female rescue chihuahua poodle mix who barks a lot a dogs when they walk by our apt door (no windows just the smell/ sound of another dog gets her crazy). I was hoping this would work reduce barking and she still has gone crazy but im Not sure if its reduced in occurences at all. I will say that she opted to growl once rather than bark so thats an improvement. I was willing to pay the $20 per month to rectify the issue but im not sure.

  • So far, so good

    By on

    I've only had this for a while so it wouldn't be fair to give a hard review on this yet. So far my dog does still pee all over the house. However, I know the cat version did wonders for my cats. Their fighting dwindled down significantly and my cat no longer sprays urine anywhere, even despite my dog marking. I paired this with the potty bells and the belly bands so I'm hoping we can break his marking habits in about two months of using this product.

  • Didn't Work

    By on

    This didn't work for either of my dogs. They are small dogs and I put it in the room they are in most. I noticed no change. I even bought a refill and did it for 2 months, just in case it takes time or something. I'm not sure if I should buy a spray version and use more of it or just forget about it.

  • It didnot work for our little one

    By on

    I was recommended this by our Vet. I was willing to try everything with our little one. We recently moved after 10 years and her barking and anxiety has been uncontrollable. We expected this and could not expect her to just all of the sudden change her behavior after being accustomed to a house and then moving to an apartment with new noises, smells and people. I have that in the wall as well as the Adaptil collar on her. Nothing has seemed to work to control her barking. So, I am upset to say, for our little one this product has not worked.

  • Seems to work

    By on

    We have a lab/ great dane mix that is really high energy and has anxiety. This isn't a miracle by any means but seems to have helped him calm down some. It won't cause a huge personality change but will help your dog calm down some.

  • Seems to be working!

    By on

    We rescued our chihuahua five years ago. He is a marker. After our retirement earlier this year, his marking worsened. We resorted to male bands. Adaptil was recommended to us. We have used it for about two weeks and have noticed a significant decrease in need for the male bands.

  • Product didn't help with SA

    By on

    My Weimaraner has separation anxiety in her crate and I've literally tried ever supplement, thunder vest, and now this diffuser. I didn't see any difference with her behavior while using the diffuser. Like it says it works with some dogs but not all, I tried this product for five months and I saw no difference.

  • Calming effects

    By on

    I was doubtful that the reviews were accurate, but I bought this to help a new adoptive get comfortable with the change. I was very surprised to see how my older beagles seemed to mellow out. The new adoption seems comfortable as well.

  • My guys personality is coming back!

    By on

    Since using the Adaptil diffuser in my bedroom where Wicket (my hound/pit mix) sleeps, his personality has come back full force! Wicket is a very anxious pup who is also on a combo of meds and Xyklene supplements to help him stay calm. Adding in the Adaptil to the mix has made him more vocal and playful at home. To fully understand how well this is working for him I should share that my husband and I are going through hard times and Wicket's been sensitive to it. Since having this plugged in it has really made a difference.

  • This stuff really works!

    By on

    But there is no way it will last 30 days! I will order more but want folks to know it doesn’t last as long as advertised.
