My first baby (12yr old Cocker Spaniel) had surgery on his ears yesterday. He will be wearing one of those collars for about a month. Does anyone have suggestions for how to make a bumper pad for it? He has scraped up my legs and is constantly running into kids with it.

Use 7.5cm wide elastoplast tape and encase some cottonwool along the edge. Warning this may get grubby and wet but it can easily be replaced. As time goes by your dog will get better at managing it and negogiating people doorways etc

I'd try graduated layers of batting strips so that it builds up most along the edge, then cover it with wide, heavy tape, such as duct tape. There probably isn't anything that will stick to both fabric and plastic to make a fabric covered padding. I hope this description is clear.
