Has he developed fistulas yet? They are extremely painful. Do you see pus around the anal area? Is he in pain when pooping? Does he have other health issues, past and currently?

This kind of muzzle maybe? I have used a muzzle on several occasions to keep a dog from tearing itself up. Much less stress than a collar. I may get one of these for my kit just to see. I have to agree with the others on the pain and anything he can do to desensitize the area alleviate the pain!

Yeah I could try something like that. Trying to use some positive reinforcement but not sure.

No fistulas yet. No, otherwise very healthy dog. He's about 1.5 years old.

Yeah I unfortunately was never aware of this.

Not sure why your response didn't get quoted. But sedatives to just get the collar on?

Oops to many "E" collar threads!

Well that's definitely an improvement on what the vet gave us. yeah the vet gave us a plastic one. That could possibly help a lot.

To make him more comfortable. He sounds like the type of GSD who's online 16 or 18 hours a day. A little ACE would take the edge off that. Then you can get him used to having his bum fussed with.

not to be argumentative at all but ace would not be my 1st choice to calm a dog
reason being that dogs have different reactions to ace and it can even cause escalated aggression
ace would also do nothing for the pain
i think a pain killer such as tramadol may be more effective
