As "cones of shame" go, this collar is probably the best for my dog as far as walking into walls or furniture. It is not rigid like a plastic cone. And the "blow-up" models allow him to reach his open wound. He's not happy at all, but I am because it has done the job of keeping him from licking a wound that would not heal.
For those of you wondering, a 48 pound wheaten terrier needs a medium extra long cone. The large is too short. It seems much more comfortable than the plastic ones while still be protective past the tip of the nose. Easy to wipe clean as well.
Years ago we purchased one of these after one of our pups needed it from a surgery. It was recommended by our vet so we gave it a try. It was more comfortable for our dog than the hard plastic cones. We found ourselves in need of a replacement so we had to get a larger size. Over the years it looks like the quality is still very good. Just be sure you measure to get the right size. Our Doberman has the longer nose so we purchased an XL which seems to work fine. We have an extra collar that we leave threaded through the cone loops to make things easier.
