Rated 1 out of 5 by mvcy too fragrant
My dog has separation anxiety when we take him to the boarder. They recommended I try a calming collar. The overpowering fragrance was too much for him. He would not stop working to get it off. We tried our best to help him adjust. After several hours we finally took it off and then he calmed down. We will take it back and try a different collar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rkymtnldy GLDN w/Hotspots and a Cat who loves it!
I purchased this for my Male Golden Retriever 4.5age. He suffers from hot spots that have now turned into lick granuloma. This collar can't replace medications that are required at times for hotspots however, I feel the licking has slowed down. Has it stopped? No, only because you cant rely on a collar for the cure-all. If you want to buy this collar to some how magically supplement corrective behavior, medicine and or stimulation you wont find it with this product. But if you want to help improve their life I feel like this could. I also have a cat with no issues who seemed to migrate to the smell of it and just loved it. I have heard that more vets think it would work better on cat but limited research is available on dogs per the local vet here. Give it a try whats to lose really.

Rated 5 out of 5 by C3P0 best purchase this year
After reading the other reviews, I was skeptical about purchasing this collar but when I saw it in the store I decided to give it a shot. I think whether this works for your individual dog may have something to do with what is causing your dog's behavior. For us, this collar has been a godsend. The difference in my dog is noticeable from the moment the collar comes out of its package.
Where she usually jumps up and down, frantic for attention, she sits calmly while I put it on. Without it, she follows everyone around the house jumping up on everything and everyone. With it, she sits calmly by my feet while I work and watches people walk by.
I'm just happy to know that she seems to feel so much calmer for such a low price/minimally invasive treatment.
The smell is a small price to pay for a little peace :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by SensitiveNose Smells too strong!
This collar is supposed to calm a pet. However, it smells terribly strong, like a bad air freshener. Dogs noses are 10,000+ times stronger than ours, why would smelling this help? I can't even imagine how it made my dog feel, when it gave me a headache after just a few minutes.
Good product idea. Terrible to add stinky strong scent.
I couldn't even try it.
