Rated 3 out of 5 by LuxPup Not Suitable for My Frenchie
I bought this for my Frenchie who has horrible allergies. She constantly chews her feet and scratches her face from itching so bad. I read other reviews on this product, and thought maybe it would work better for my dog since she has a shorter muzzle. I ordered a medium because one person said she had used a large for her German Shepherd and it was a good fit.
When I received the product it was easy to blow up (it says how to do it in the directions). I like that you can take the cover off and wash it if necessary. It feels durable, yet comfortable. It fit my Frenchie just fine, and seemed like it was working at first. However, I realized after a while the reason she wasn't chewing her paws in the beginning was because she was too distracted by the new device around her neck. Once she was used to it she was STILL able to reach her paws. I feel like this product is meant for issues more around the underside area, such as spays and neuters. Perhaps a larger size would have worked for her but come on...a large for a 21 lb. Frenchie? I guess we'll have to stick to using regular cones.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LabLover We WANTED TO LOVE this, but it was easily punctured
We ordered this for our 5-1/2 month old Lab puppy to use after her spay surgery. The first 2 days were fine (mainly because she was not too active). On day 3 she started healing and feeling better. We noticed on the morning of day 3 she was trying to get it off by pawing at it with her front paws while laying down on the floor. I ran over to her so she would stop while my husband went to get the plastic cone the vet sent us home with if needed. In that amount of time we realized the Cloud was NO LONGER HOLDING AIR. It is a great idea but the durability is just not where it needs to be for this product. I would not recommend using this, especially if leaving a dog in a crate. There is a warning on the packaging that says to use while supervised… I’m glad we did or our dog would have been able to access her incision area in minutes after puncturing the Cloud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SixPackMamma Love it, and the dogs prefer it to standard cones.
We bought one for our oldest because a traditional e-collar was not a good fit since she's not as flexible to be able to carry on her day with a regular e-collar. There are some reviews that had said depending on what your trying to keep them from they may still be able to get to that area and this is true if you don't get the correct size or by leaving them alone with the collar on they will eventually figure out how to get around and know what area to hit just right as they turn. If you don't check for fit and inflation of it then it will deflate over time. Emma does not wear this while I'm not home and does well with bandages when I'm not there, but these are observations that I came across just by watching her reactions(though she could sleep sooooo well with it also and no snoring, there's another reason so maybe Kong can cross sell this!)Obviously it will depend on the dog like anything else, you know your dog best but I feel this is defiantly worth the try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vicki59 Excellent product!
Our sweet Buddy had a large hot spot on his hip. We searched everywhere for something comfortable yet effective to prevent him from irritating it. The Kong dog collar was exactly what we needed. It seems very comfortable for him, allows easy movement and prevents him from being able to reach the area on his hip! It was perfect for our needs. Highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Roxy Cloud Collar
This is a great item. My dog was so traumatized by the plastic head cone thing after his surgery that I couldn't stand to look at his face (being sad and all). So I decided to remove that plastic thing and buy this. He didn't care to have this around his neck. It made it so much easier to eat and drink. It even made it more comfortable to sleep. They dont bang into walls and furniture like they do with the cone. Best invention for dogs!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by angie This product has wonderful features.
My dog is 95 pounds and had abdominal surgery. The Kong Cloud collar was an excellent preventive for her. She had enough protection to prevent her from getting to her surgical site and it fit perfect. The Kong Cloud collar is not cumbersome. It allowed her to move around freely and eat and drink without difficulty. When she slept it was like she was sleeping on a pillow. It is durable, but soft. She never tried to remove it. I would recommend this collar for any animal having abdominal surgery and needing a preventive for their safety.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jacqui Huge collar
Oh my. What a mistake! This collar is enormous. My lab pup took one look at it and hid under the bed. He was wearing a cone for an injury, and i thought this might be more comfortable. It stuck out at least 8 inches around his neck and was so cumbersome! Maybe for a giant dog it would be ok, but I went back to the plastic hood.
