If dogs can actually "see" the recovery collar being put around their neck, the will be less stressed and more comfortable with having to wear a foreign object around their neck during a period of recovery from an already stressful injury.
To determine what colors would confort a dog during stressful times, we searched out advise from prominent canine color vision researcher Opthamologist Jay Neitz. Dr Neitz* has done extensive investigation into the color blindness of humans, dogs and monkeys, he reports.
"Dogs actually do see color, but many fewer colors than normal humans do. Instead of seeing the rainbow as violet, blue, blue-green, green, yellow, orange and red, dogs would see it as dark blue, light blue, gray, light yellow (sort of brown), and very dark gray."
A soft blue calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity, secure and orderly. The pastel blue is often used to decorate offices because research has shown that people are more productive in blue rooms. Blue rooms have been shown to lower the pulse rate and body temperature. It's also in the mid-range of colors that dogs see which means it's one of the colors they see best and are more acustomed to.
