Case Study: The pig pheromone androstenone, acting as an interomone, stops dogs from barking

Some dogs display behaviors such as excessive barking and jumping, which can often lead to animal abuse or relinquishment to a shelter. Published in the February 2014 issue of The Professional Animal Scientist, this study looked at whether androstenone, a pig pheromone, reduced barking and jumping behaviors in excitable dogs.

  • Androstenone is found in boar’s saliva and was the first mammalian pheromone to be identified.
  • A pheromone is an excreted chemical factor that triggers a social response in members of the same specifies.
  • An interomone acts like a pheromone in the same species, but has a different effect in other species.

The result of the study is that androstenone — acting as an interomone rather than a pheromone — has a powerful effect on rapidly stopping barking and jumping through the olfactory system. When the pheromone used in SENTRY Stop That! was applied to the treatment group, 100% of the dogs stopped barking and jumping. In addition, SENTRY Stop That! had no effect on the dogs’ heart rates.
