So much more gentle than the plastic cones. Less aggravation for both pet and human!! I love that it folds so you can feed your pet easier. This will be the only e-collar I will ever use again.

My two 4 month old border collie/ lab mix puppies both got neutered and had their dew claws removed from their hind legs all at the same time. I refuse to use the plastic cone collars provided by the vet and knew I wanted an alternative. I tried a different collar first that looks and acts like a human neck brace. That kind dug into their skin and they could still reach all their sutures! Don't get that kind, but try the Comfy Cone. It worked very well and the boys were SO CUTE in them! Plus the cone folds almost flat for storage and can be used again if ever needed in the future (as long as you get the appropriate size accommodating for growth).

Only small problem w/ the Comfy Cone is it seemed kinda heavy for the dogs. I did get a size larger than they need as puppies so I could re-use them if I ever needed to once they were full grown. But the cone still seemed a little heavy.

drugstore.com is the cheapest place I could find to get them.

tips on using--
1--adjust to the right size and then slip over pet's head (you should be securing it w/ the pet's collar, so the cone itself can be a little loose). The velcro is very strong and makes a very loud noise, which can frighten the pet.
2--the product starts off very rigid, so human needs to "break it in" by folding and scrunching it up. Otherwise it's difficult for the human to fold down for the pet to eat. When folding, place a hand on the outside of cone for leverage and to create a folding point. Then fold from the inside w/ the other hand. Be careful--I broke a few nails!
3--pet may tend to get the bottom edge of the cone stuck on a higher step when going up stairs. Help your pet out by gently lifting the top of edge of the cone (and the pet's head). My dogs tended to be hesitant in going up stairs unless I helped them by lifting the cone. Could be a safety concern.
4--remove the cone whenever possible. Both my boys got kinda depressed in the cone (you would to if you had to wear that heavy, awkward, very black cone on your head).

Have lots of patience (and take a few pictures, cause they will be so adorable!). And trust me, this is one of the best alternatives out there!!!!

I got this for my foster pup who was driving me nuts ramming into everything including me and the plastic cone actually scratched paint off (he is very rambunctious) the door frames. I also felt better about crating him with this rather than the hard plastic that made it hard for him to move in there. He did not have a problem with the black (non see-through) sides though I can imagine some would. After 12 days of wear it is almost completely destroyed but I feel it took ALOT of abuse. I have 2 XL dogs and one liked to pull on the cone while they were playing. It would come off collar and all so I tightened the collar and that is when elastic loops started to break and those are instrumental in keeping it on securely. The edges of the cone were pretty beat up but that did not affect its use. It started to stink from all the water and food drool so I washed it and it did fine. It got more flexible over time and would sometimes get pushed back but again this was after a lot of abuse!THe foster pup was healing from being neutered and it seemed like he was able to lick the area or at least very close to it (witht he cone on it was hard to see where he was licking). He is an 85lb Lab wearing the XL so depending on where the injury is there are limits to what this can protect. The hard plastic cone was a bit longer but then that was part of the annoyance!If you have 1 dog or don't let the coned dog play much I think it will hold up just fine and still I do not regret buying it, [$]for 12 days of relative peace and comfort for all of us was totally worth it! Too bad they don't make the elastic a bit stronger!p.s. as for the reviewer who said it was just as loud as the hard ones, I disagree, it still makes some noise but not the horrible scraping sound that you know is taking paint off the walls. Also if there is a crate involved there is WAAAY less noise!

        Indicates you can fold it back so they can get water and food. No way because it doesn't stay in place. Moves around on collar. No way to keep it clean. Horrible purchase that I regret.

          We have 2-GSDs and both have skin allergies. This E-Collar stops the biting and licking on the skin, is sturdy, easy to clean, and works great on my big dogs. This is the 2nd one I have purchased, but the 1st one is still in great shape, no rips, no tears, nothing wrong. That hard plastic one you get from your vet is just awful, and doesn't last very long. You won't be disappointed with this collar.

          With a bacterial infection, our 10 year old shepherd was told that she had to wear an e-collar for 6-8 weeks. The plastic one we bought at the vet was loud (as she walked into walls) and she could not get settled for 2 days. Her sleeping and us sleeping at night was imperative. The comfy cone has made a world of difference- she does not fight to get it on and it soft yet prohibits her from bothering her infection. BEST PURCHASE! Be sure to find the right size and do not hesitate!

              I have Great Danes and with the plastic E Collars it is very hard for them to move around in the house. With this collar they can move around easily without distroying everything in their path. I do wish they would make one even longer. 12 inches is not long enough for a dog with a very long muzzle.
              Please, make an extra long. Otherwise I love the collar.

                  I needed something to keep my golden retreiver from licking a hot spot on her front leg. I tried the clear plastic cone which totally freaked her out to where she wouldn't even walk, then it shattered. Tried wrapping her leg with bandages then covering the bandages with duct tape (loosely). She just chewed below the duct tape and caused a new hot spot. Finally trid the comfy cone which she doesn't really like, but she will walk in it and lay down. She won't go to the bathroom with it on and can't eat or drink, but I can put it on her for part of the day. I use bitter apple spray when she doesn't have it on and that helps too.

                    I have a Golden with a large sore on his hip. I was all brusied up from the plastic cone from him bumping me. With the comfy cone there is no problem. The plastic cone he knew if he kept hitting on something it would pop open come off and he could get to his sore again, not with the comfy cone, it stays on!

                    My Lola has itchy skin in the spring, summer and fall. I order an XL, she is an American Pitbull, and it keeps her off of her hind quarters and paws. I moved up in size from a large to an extra large because of greater depth of the collar. Great product otherwise!!

                    This cone is great. I purchased it instead of using the plastic cone that we have used in the past. The only con is it is still about as noisy as the plastic cone. But it is so much more comfortable then the plastic cone for my dog. The other con is that if my dog who is already black goes out side her head heats up very quickly in the sun with the cone since it is black. But over all I would highly recommend this over a plastic one.
