In mammals, all lactating females release substances called "appeasing pheromones", the function of which is to reassure the offspring. Canine "appeasing pheromones" are secreted by the sebaceous glands of the intermammary sulcus in the lactating bitch. These pheromones calm the puppy during times of stress and provide reassurance, particularly in unknown environments and when encountering novel experiences. Research has shown that the reassuring properties of these pheromones persist even into adult age.
D.A.P. (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) mimics the properties of the natural "appeasing pheromones" of the bitch.
