A Pawsitively Comfortable Alternative to the Traditional Dog Cone

If you’ve ever had a furry friend come home from the vet with stitches or incessantly itch and need to wear the dreaded “Cone of Shame,” you know how uncomfortable and frustrating it can be for them. But what if there was a way to make their recovery a little easier and more bearable? Introducing the DIY Pool Noodle Dog Collar, a creative and comfortable alternative to the traditional dog cone.

Pool Noodles: Not Just for Fun and Games

We all know that pool noodles are a hit with kids, whether they’re using them for a summer swim or creating an exciting obstacle course. But did you know that pool noodles can also be incredibly practical around the house?

From holding up your boots to sprinkling your garden, these versatile little tubes have a multitude of uses. And here’s one use you may not have thought of yet: making a comfortable dog cone.

Making the Dog Cone of Comfort

Imagine your furry companion trying to walk with a traditional cone, only to get stuck and have to move backward. Not a pleasant experience for them, right? That’s where the DIY pool noodle dog collar comes to the rescue.

By using a pool noodle, you can create a custom dog cone that fits your pet perfectly. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Find a pool noodle that matches your dog’s style or simply go with any that has a suitable size and hole in the middle. It’s about functionality, not fashion.
  2. Cut the noodle into 1-inch pieces for smaller dogs or 1.5-2-inch pieces for larger dogs. Approximately 8 pieces will be needed for small dogs while 10-12 pieces will suffice for larger dogs.
  3. Adjust the collar to be slightly larger than usual, ensuring your pooch doesn’t feel constricted.
  4. String the noodle pieces onto the collar until it fits snugly and comfortably on your dog.
