* Dog & Cat Appeasing Pheromones. Mother dogs and cats communicate with their puppies/kittens via chemical signals or pheromones to provide comfort and security. They are odorless and only perceived by dog or cats, helping them to feel calm and relaxed. 


Professional dog trainers can help you manage all manner of problematic behavioral issues with your pet. They can assist you to identify the origin or triggers of the behavior and teach you strategies to avoid those triggers and change your dog’s emotional state to enable the dog to relax when they encounter what would have been a stressful situation.

These trainers are experienced in helping you manage and deal with behavioral issues in dogs and will support you through the process towards a much happier relationship with your family pet.
