What is this product used for:
The Sentry Calming Collar helps dogs in fearful or stressful situations (separation anxiety, visitors, new puppies, loud noises, new baby, vet visits, traveling). The Sentry Calming Collar provides a convenient alternative to diffusers, which are limited for use in the confines of a designated room.
The Sentry Calming Collar for Dogs is a lavender chamomile fragrance non-prescription (OTC) product.
How this product should be used:
Place the collar around your dog's neck, adjusting to fit the neck comfortably. The collar must be worn loosely to allow for growth of your dog and to permit the collar to move about the neck. Generally, a properly fitted collar is one that when fastened, will snugly slide over your pet's head. Leave 2 or 3 inches for extra adjustment. Cut off the excess portion of the collar. The effects of one collar will last up to 30 days.
What are the side effects:
There are no reported side effects.
What special precautions are there:
The collar is designed to release powder when applied, which will activate the pheromones. Wash hands after placing collar on your pet. Seal collar in a plastic bag when not in use to prolong the effect. Remove the collar before shampooing your dog and replace it after your dog's coat is dry. Do not use the collar on dogs with extensive skin lesions.
In the event of overdose:
Overdose is unlikely. However, if an overdose is suspected, call a veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.
How should I store this product:
Store the unopened collar at room temperature. Keep out of the reach of children and other pets.
- Take the collar out of the packaging and stretch to full length. The tabs that held the collar in place should fall off when stretching; pull on any remaining tabs to remove them.
- Bend the buckle in half between the holes in the buckle, so that you can easily pass the end of the collar through both holes.
- Place the collar around your dog's neck. Feed the collar through both holes, notches facing out. Fit to the neck of your dog. The collar must be worn loosely to allow for growth of your dog and to permit the collar to move about the neck. Generally, a properly fitted collar is one that, when fastened, will snugly slide over dog's head, and the two fingers can be placed between the collar and dog's neck. Leave 2 or 3 extra inches for collar adjustment, cut off remaining excess collar and dispose of in the trash.
Seal collar in plastic bag when not in use to prolong the effectiveness of the collar.

Quiet at last!
We have a new (well, one year now) male rescue Pomeranian. He's a real beauty and fits in well with the rest of our tribe (3 others#. BUT HIS BARKING HAS BEEN DRIVING US NUTS! And, it's not just that he barks, when he starts, they all chime in! He was hyper alert. I put this collar on him last night at 6PM clear through now #noon the next day) and nary a peep from him. He is so much calmer!!! I actually have to look around to find him now - and of course the other dogs are back to normal because he isn't stirring them up!!!
A million thanks!

I have a 3 year old lab mix that has presented with separation anxiety issues (excessive barking, peeing/pooping in the house when we go - otherwise potty trained, pacing, tearing down curtains). The vet suggested trying the pheromone collar before trying anti-anxiety medications, I agreed as I would not like to put her on medications that aren't necessary. The collar made absolutely no difference in her behavior. We have been working on training as well, but are now seeking medications to help with her anxiety. Perhaps it works on some dogs with less severe anxiety issues.

It seemed to work immediately. We were worried about taking our 1 year old Chihuahua/Hound mix on vacation. It worked, he was on his best behavior.

Calming Collar & "Stop That" Spray
I purchased both the Sentry "Stop That!" behavior correction spray and the Calming Collar for dogs. They may be very good products, but they don't work on Terriers!! I have two terriers, an Airedale and a Lakeland Terrier. The Calming Collar did nothing. The "Stop That!" Spray got them even more excited.

Helpful Calming Collar
I purchased this collar to help stop some of the anxiety and bad behavior that our miniature Schnauzer has. I wish they came in smaller sizes for small necks without wasting half of the collar. It has helped considerably and am very happy that his barking and whining have been reduced to be tolerable now. The scent only lasts for a month so we will see how it goes after that, he smells good and is behaving better now.

I GOT THE CALMING COLLAR FOR MY PUPPY MINIATURE SCHNAIZER. I GUESS IT HAS HELPED A LITTLE BUT HOPEFULLY SHE HAS NOT BEEN WEARING IT LONG ENOUGH. SHE IS SO VERY ANXIOUS AND AFRAID OF EVERYTHING. HOPEFULLY THIS WILL IMPROVE WITH TIME.

We put the collar on our chihuahua, and I am not sure that there was any effect; however, later in the day, it seemed apparent that there was no change in his behavior. After a few weeks, it is clear that the collar us useless on him.
