Comfort Zone® Products & My Dog

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort Zone® products for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. If you have ever spent time with a Jack Russell, you just know they are "energetic" and quirky.  My 9 year old male, Bovie, is no exception to that rule.  He minds well in general, but absolutely never tires, and is on a relentless pursuit to rid the world of cats, skunks, squirrels - pretty much all woodland creatures.  He will wine and pace for hours if a squirrel runs along the fence, scratching at the sliding door with astonishing persistence.  There was the day a kitty wondered onto our porch and just hung out there, watching Bovie freak out...

Oh yeah, and there is something he is convinced lives just behind the baseboard at the bottom of my stairs.  He will scratch and dig at it every chance he gets, until one of us hears the sound of our trim being destroyed and stops him.  I won't even go into the neighbors that he traumatized when he pulled a Houdini, freeing himself from his collar and cornered their poor cat.    Finally, thunderstorms and fireworks... big time stress for Bovie.  He whines and barks and tries to claw his way out of his crate.  No sleep for anyone on July 4th around here.

Needless to say, I jumped at the chance to try out Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® (Dog Appeasing Pheromone).  Stress causes pets to act out with these annoying and sometimes destructive behaviors.   Comfort Zone® products mimick the natural pheromones of cats (there is a feline version) and dogs, which helps them feel calm and comfortable in their space.  This reduces stress-related behavior like digging and excessive barking.

I plugged the diffuser in near the baseboard that my dog thinks is hiding a creature.  You are supposed to have 90 days for full effect, but I have definitely noticed decreased digging behavior, and will be continuing to use the diffuser.  When the next thunderstorm rolls around, I will use the pheromone spray in his crate and let you know if it was helpful.
