    functional, but dog can still reach back feet: needs design adjustments.

    By on

    the review is long, but im sure it will help. Starting off it DOES work, and I read a lot of reviews before I purchased it. Here are the things are NOT mentioned/ need improvement. 1- Sizing. My 85lb Lab has in inflatable collar that is sized 13-18. its loose. to the point that we had to shorten the Velcro lead to make it not slide off her head. The Calm Paws large says it goes up to 17" but it feels like Its going to choke my dog while putting it on. It does have space and will spin around her neck, but putting it on is awkward and she backs away (she chews her feet, and has no fear putting on the inflatable or hard plastic cones) 2- the Velcro size adjustments/ strips are good, except the review is long, but im sure it will help.

Its about 2 inches in. This makes it hard to line up when on the dog. it also creates at 2" flap - on the inside of the collar- which folds perpendicular to the cone, so it sticks out internally. 3- when installed properly, closing edges will over lap, this double material makes that particular part of the cone heavier. and within about 100 steps, the overlapping part of the cone is now at the bottom- under the dogs chin-.. when this happens the part designed to open for drinking ends up at the top. Thus making it useless- however I'm not sure if this is on purpose, since if the "v" was left open and under the dogs chin, the dog could reach its feet to lick/chew. 4- its too flexible. it "folds to fit in the box" so a smart dog (as my lab is) has learned to just lean on it and it bends/collapses and then she can reach her back feet. 5- the "large/ex" "cone part" needs to be a little longer. 6- The Velcro strips should be inverse. If using the largest size, the remaining Velcro strips have the HARD part exposed. These strips pick up hair, and get stuck to Blankets and clothes, and anything else Velcro will stick to. I had to get extra soft side to cover the un-used strips so my dog would quit dragging her blanket with her (it would stick to the Velcro on the outside of the cone) … more
