Since our dog was badly attacked a few months ago we have been investigating many many different techniques and products to help stop attacks in progress (on top of preventative measures) and one I recently stumbled upon was a product called Sentry Stop That!.
It states that it has a Lavender chamomile fragrance as well as pheromones (I have been told it contains 0.1% Pheromone); but the main point of it is it's "hissing sound" it makes.
The product can be found here: https://www.sentrypetcare.com/products/sentry-stop-that-noise-and-pheromone-spray/
To get the to the root of my question, when our dog was attacked, she was attacked by another dog that was on heat (or just coming off heat); so my question is, would a product that contains Pheromones make dogs that are on heat/coming off heat more horny/wild - because obviously that is the opposite of what we want.
I guess because it is a pig pheromone it shouldn't be an issue as it comes from a different species, but something that stood out to me from the article was this part:
Having shown its effectiveness, McGlone was able to classify androstenone not only as a pheromone but also as an intermone, a term developed by him and his team that refers to a product that is a "pheromone in one species and has a behavioral effect in another species, but we do not know if it is a pheromone (naturally produced) in the other species."
I have asked the supplier but it seems they didn't really want to directly answer the question.
