Efficacy of dog appeasing pheromone in reducing stress and fear related behaviour in shelter dogs



Efficacy of dog appeasing pheromone in reducing stress and fear related behaviour in shelter dogs



Applied Animal Behaviour Science 93(3/4): 295-308



The behavioural effects of dog appeasing pheromone (DAP) continuously administered over a 7-day period, were evaluated in adult dogs housed in a public animal shelter. Barking amplitude (dB) and the frequency of discrete behavioural responses to two temperament tests associated with fear, separation and excitable behaviour (Arrowsmith, unpublished data) were recorded in 37 treatment and 17 control dogs.
