Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser Review & Giveaway

Does your lovable Labrador Retriever have a problem with excessive barking, chewing, fears or stress-related issues? If so, a product called Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) may be of help to you!

Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser

Recently we were asked if we would like to try out the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser and do a review of how the product worked with our two Labrador Retriever girls. Now, our two Labrador Retrievers are fairly well behave house dogs but we do have an occasional problem or two with barking and over excitement. Plus, our chocolate Labrador Retriever, Meeko, has always had a problem with the vacuum cleaner and other loud noises (thunder, fireworks) since we got her as a small pup. I always attributed this problem to Meeko being flown in to us from Oklahoma. I believe the loud noise fear is possibly related to the loud engine of the plane.

When we were approached to try out the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser, while skeptical, I thought it would be worth it to give it a try.

So, what is the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser and how does it work?

From the Comfort Zone® website: "Pet behavior problems, such as urine marking in cats and excessive barking or chewing in dogs, are frequently caused by fear or stress. Developed and recommended by veterinarians, Comfort Zone® products are clinically proven* to help control destructive behavior in cats and dogs.

Like all animals, cats and dogs secrete pheromones. Research has shown that certain pheromones can help an animal cope with these fears or stress-related issues. Comfort Zone® products mimic these pheromones to help control your pet's behavior and make him feel more secure in his environment."


What Are Dog Pheromones?

"Pheromones emitted by animals through their skin and glands are natural chemicals that help them to communicate with others of the same species. When your dog or puppy senses the pheromone, he feels secure and comfortable, reducing his fear reactions and his urge to act out destructively through chewing, excessive barking or house soiling."


Our Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser arrived with a Diffuser and three bottles of the Dog Appeasing Pheromone. Each bottle lasts 30 days and covers up to 500 - 650 sq. ft. We screwed a bottle of the Dog Appeasing Pheromone into the Diffuser and plugged it into an outlet in a room our Labrador Retriever girlies spend a good deal of time in.

Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® (Dog Appeasing Pheromone)

The instructions for the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser say that it can take up to a month before you may see a noticeable difference in your dogs. We began to see a slight change between week four and week five.

For our black Labrador Retiever, Dakota, we noticed a slight calming behavior with her barking at outside noise, people at the door. For Meeko, we also notice a calming behavior in the barking of people visiting the house (not sure if it's because of Dakota not barking, the Comfort Zone® product or both). As for the use of the vacuum, it's taken a little while longer but, I am happy to report that in our fourth month of using the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser (we bought more refills) her nervous reaction to the vacuum is getting better! As where she used to jump up and run around like a lunatic before using the Comfort Zone®, now she seems to be more relaxed. She does not run around as much as she use to and we have noticed she will move toward the location of the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser. This is still a work in progress but as stated, we have bought more refills and are hoping the improvement continues. I will also be purchasing another Comfort Zone® to plus it into a second location of our home the our two lovable Labrador Retrievers frequent.

I'm very happy to report that we were impressed with the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® Diffuser. It worked much better than we expected and I'm happy to have had the chance to try this product as well as give it a thumbs up as a recommendation for others to try.

Head on over to the Comfort Zone® website to learn more about this product as well as finding locations or online distributors to order.

My dog's most undesirable behavior is separation anxiety and general anxiety. She is the perfect test case for D.A.P.!

My poor basenji has IBS and it can be triggered by severe stress. Unfortunately, separation causes great anxiety in him even when I leave only for an hour. He gets really sick and is already on medicine. I don't want to give him more drugs for anxiety. I want a more natural way to sooth him.

He tends to roll on the carpet to scratch and leave huge tracks of hair!!

My dog constantly licks her paws until they are raw.
