I tried it with Seamus, it took months for him to even let me put it on him. When I finally got it on, he hated the bell so much he ran and hid under the bed petrified of the bell on it. To top it off, he would not let me near him to get it back off. All night, he sat in the spare room and did not move an inch. I was worried so I got up every few hours to check on him because he was so scared, hadn't moved at all. The next morning, he finally let me take it off and was his old self immediately.
So then I cut the bell off and tried to get the collar on him again. He's receptive to me putting it on, but hates wearing it, so I decided it better to just leave him without it since he is not allowed outside. He's let me put bandanas on him and take pictures, and he lets me get the thing on him, which is enough because I can get it on him for vet visits and if I ever wind up with a need to take him out. In general though, he hates the thing.
