With all bridle design type collars dogs with very short fur can develop chafing on the snout due to rubbing of the nose-piece. SafeCalm has put together a few helpful hints to prevent chafing below:

The primary cause for chafing is forceful corrections, or correcting too hard. When using the SafeCalm collar gentle, barely noticeable,  corrections works best. The best way to assure zero chafing is to put the SafeCalm collar on  but do not attach the leash to it, rather attach the leash to the second back-up collar and correct from there. This assures no pressure is applied to the snout, and it works just as effectively for correction.

1. Make sure the SafeCalm collar is correctly fitted. loosen the rubber slide so the nose- piece is not tight around the snout.

2. When correcting your dog using leash-snap corrections, don't yank or forcefully pull back, use gently light corrections. The more gentle the correction the better the result.

3. If chaffing occurs it's important to wait until the chafing clears-up before using the SafeCalm collar again, and you should always consult with your veterinarian to make sure your dog does not have a skin condition.

4. Add or improvise some padding. Pad the nose-piece with fleece or a fleece Strap Wrap.

5. Don't forget training! Working with your dog to reduce the amount of pulling. Look under Dog Tips on navagation bar.

6. Also if you are worried about chafing, you can put the SafeCalm collar on without attaching it to the SafeCalm collar. Just attach the leash to the regular back up collar. Use the back-up collar for correction, this method will not cause chafing from correction. See video below:
