Dogs hate medical collars, or do they?

You might think that Mr B would hate his medical collar, but creating a positive association with the collar can work wonders. Mr B gets treats for putting on the collar, hence he thinks it’s an excellent idea.  First treat comes before I mess about with the fixings. Second treat comes once I’ve fixed it. Third comes as we do something else to take his mind off the fact that the collar is on.
