Do you have a hard time cutting your dog's nails? The Calming Cap can help. We weren't sure about the Calming Cap until we tried it with our dogs. Wow, what a difference! It's easy to put on too. The Gentle Leader Calming Cap lessens a dog's anxiety and/or aggression in high-stress situations. The Calming Cap was originally developed to ease hyperactivity in a dog that became agitated while traveling in a car. It works by reducing visual stimulus but not eliminating it completely. It is not a blindfold! The single-panel sheer fabric window makes the dog's vision indistinct while allowing the dog to navigate his surroundings if need be. Things like people, tables and doorways are still visible while smaller things like nail clippers and a vet's needles are obscured. Great for dog introductions, car rides, vet visits and nail clipping sessions. The cap connects to the dog's collar with Velcro straps and the elastic ring that surrounds the muzzle is not restrictive, making it easy to put on and take off. Here is how to measure for a Calming Cap: 1. Length A: Start by measuring the width of your dog's head. If you hold a ruler up in front of the eyes or on top of the head you can get a pretty good measurement for the width. 2. Length B: Next measure from just behind the ears (the highest point a collar can reach) to a point about an inch in front of the eyes down the nose.
