Jack our 4 month young pup has been licking his inner thighs raw. We thought about an Elizabeth Collar or an e collar but we where worried about the time Jack spent in his crate, going up and down the stairs and playing around the house. So for a comfortable alternative to the traditional Elizabeth Collar or dog cone I came up with this simple basically free No Bite Collar.

This would be perfect for dogs or cats that have surgery, sprayed or neutered as well.

    This collar is absolutely amazing in its simplicity! My Scottish Terrier's breeder passed on this link in the event we need a collar for some upcoming surgery. I've had to use an Elizabethan collar numerous times in the past - and they are plain awful - for both dogs and owners! Should I need a collar come next week, I will most certainly go this route.
