Dog Cone - The Best Dog Crate Buy
The old-fashioned way of keeping a dog from licking their wounds after a dog fight is to put them in a dog cone. These have different names too - Elizabethan Collar, E E-collars, Buster Collar, or just plain known as the Cone of Soreness they all basically work in pretty much the same way stopping your dog from licking their wet wounds and nipping at them with their tongues. This often results in the dog either bleeding or at worst, biting their wounds. Let's explore further what the dog cone is used for and why it doesn't work.
Dog nip is very painful for the dog and very upsetting to the owners. Dogs don't generally like to be rubbed on but they certainly do if they are forced to. That's where the dog cone comes into play. It's a special type of dog collar that wraps around the dog's neck and keeps them comfortable in a dog cone that prevents them from getting bitten.
They come in different sizes and materials. The soft dog cone material has become popular with trainers and those caring for indoor/outdoor dogs. These are made from cotton, nylon, flannel, and fleece. You can get a collar with a removable collar clip and Velcro closures.
The non-soft dog cones come in a variety of materials including leather, rubber, canvas, and vinyl. The most durable and long-lasting are the leather and rubber dog collars. They may have the clip option but I prefer the Velcro closure for my dog's safety and comfort. They are also available in many colors and can be personalized with your dog's name or initial.
My next choice is the vinyl dog collars. These are washable and do not require an airbag around their neck because they do not have any insulation so they do not need to be vented. The only thing you have to keep in mind when washing these is that once they are soaked with water, inflatable collar, or soft dog cone must be removed.
The next are the spray dog cones and airbags. They are great for areas that your dog gets wet because they are easy to clean up and dry. Spray coating them give them extra protection against the rain or other weather elements. However, there is one concern you should know about this item. The spray coating is very sticky and if your dog is perspiring heavily while playing, then the collar could probably get wet and thus damage it.
The last are the soft dog collars and airbags. These are the most common and I recommend these because they are very comfortable. When washing them, you can just wash them under running water and they will still be safe and intact. They are easy to put on and take off so you won't have much trouble putting on and taking off them.
For people who want to take things a step further, you can always try out the washable dog collars and airbags. It gives you the freedom to choose what material you would like them to be made of. You can also choose different sizes like small, medium, large, X-large, and even overnight. The only down fall about these two selections is that they can be a bit bulky. So, if you don't mind a little bulkiness, then you might want to consider the washable ones.
If you want something that is a little bit more comfortable, then the soft dog collars and airbags would be the way to go. Although they are not as comfy as the regular collar and are not as adjustable as the washable types, they are still very comfortable. So, if you want to make sure that your dog is as comfortable as possible, then the washable option is the best one for you.
However, if your pooch is not a dog that need to be wearing everyday, but instead a dog that are mostly used for walks, then you have to find a dog collar that is designed especially for walks. There are a lot of different designs nowadays that are specifically made to fit dogs with long necks and slender builds. They are called to walk collars, and they have a strap attached to the leash that is adjustable so that your pet can easily move around and give you a good exercise. Aside from the adjustable strap, there is also a reflective panel that your pet will be able to see when approaching other dogs. This is because this particular dog collar is made specifically with the aim of keeping your pet safe at all times and to help you keep track of it as well.
Some other key features of these collars are the fact that they come in different colors, styles, and sizes. They also vary in their price. Most pet owners prefer those that are washable because they tend to be a little bit more expensive than the other models, although it should be noted that this is merely a preference. So, regardless of which type of walk collar you prefer, you will be able to find one that will suit your needs and budget.
