*Note: Many dogs in our modern society have developed sensitivity to nickel which is a metal in all stainless steel products. Keep a watchful eye on your dogs skin where the contact points are touching his/her skin for redness or any signs of irritation. This should be done hourly at first and slowly transition to once every four hours after a month of daily wearing of the e-collar. At first notice of redness immediately switch to one of our hypo allergenic contact points, we offer both nickel free stainless steel and titanium contact points. Dogs with sensitive skin and certain breeds with known skin sensitivities like Pit Bull Terriers and Boxers should be switched early in the process as a precautionary move.
