When I heard about the Comfort Zone® products for dogs, I knew that my sister might be interested in trying one of their diffusers for her three pups. They aren’t particularly “bad” dogs but they are a challenge for her sometimes! Please welcome her (and the pups) in this guest review!
Meet the boys: Mr. Medium, Mr. Small, & Mr. Extra Tiny (Shadow, Bingo & Gizmo, respectively) They’re special. Not necessarily in the way your dogs are special. All 3 are rescue pets, each coming originally from situations that were less than ideal for them. So, they have some extra special behavioral & emotional issues.
They follow me around, continuously. They bark. Gizmo whines (a lot). The 2 little ones try to out-pee each other all over my house. They really are not friends. We’ve tried a fairly decent number of products ~ calming shampoos, stress tablets, sprays that discourage marking. Not a lot of effect.
On top of the usual issues, we’re moving. People in & out, being left alone for (relatively) long stretches of time, & pieces of their usual environment disappearing puts even more stress on the dogs. So it was a pretty good time for us to try the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® diffuser.
I honestly wasn’t expecting a great deal from this product. Maybe the boys would be a little calmer after a few days, something like that. But ~ HOLY SMOKES, Ya’ll! Within 24 hours of plugging in the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® diffuser, they had stopped following me from room to room.
It’s been 12 years since I’ve been able to walk through my house without tripping over a dog. And they played together. That never happens. Neh-ver. They tumbled around on the floor like puppies. Even Shadow joined in, & he’s 12 years old. It is absolutely amazing.
Marking behavior is slightly improved. I’ve only had the Comfort Zone® with D.A.P.® diffuser plugged in for about a week, & maximum effectiveness is 30 days. I’ve only found three puddles this week, each one in a room other than the living room (where the diffuser is located) & each made at a time when no one was home for several hours at a time. That is a slight improvement, & it’s better than any of the other methods I’ve tried.
I’m honestly impressed with this product, & will continue to use it for the boys. Learn more about Comfort Zone® products on Facebook (psst, they have a coupon!) and find them at pet specialty stores including PetSmart and Petco, independent pet stores and online. I believe this product is well worth getting.
