The large size antlers fit comfortably on our labrador. The headband is quite flexible and not too tight, and the elastic adjusts under the chin. They wouldn't fit a much larger dog. I was careful introducing them, getting her to sit and offering a treat, waiting until she was happy to let me put them on, then lots of treats once she was wearing them. She was able to get them off very easily, but quickly figured out that she would get more treats if she kept them on. Now, when I show her the antlers, she sits without being told and waits for me to put them on, as she knows she'll be rewarded.
The antlers are padded and flexible, and have withstood being pulled off and rolled on, though they wouldn't survive being chewed or played with, and obviously should be used under supervision. The whole thing is lightweight and stays in place surprisingly well on our labrador. Not sure how well they would work on a dog with a narrower head.
So this year we took our dog with us to a fund-raising Christmas event and she wore the antlers all afternoon without complaint - she could easily have taken them off if she'd wanted but obviously they weren't uncomfortable - and so many people came over to see her (and put money in the collecting pot)! Recommended if you have a tolerant dog who doesn't mind being dressed up and will enjoy the extra attention they get!
