Rated 5 out of 5 by GoldenMom I love Chewy!!!
I have a three year old golden I rescued three months ago and she is being spayed July 27th. With all of her fears, I didn't want to put a big plastic hood on her little head. This collar seems to be the perfect answer. Also, I love Chewy.com. I have been a customer for years and recently lost my golden angel, Lacy, who was only 7 1/2 years. Chewy.com sent flowers when they found out Lacy had gone over Rainbow Bridge. That means so much to me. They are constantly helping me with items I need for my rescue Marley along with my golden puppy, Cali, who is now 4 months. Thank you Chewy. I love and respect you all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ALethia17 Better than the plastic cone type
I've had half of my seven Australian Shepherds at one time or another, for a variety of reasons in cones. I've used the plastic kind up until I purchased this through Chewy.com. It has proven far more comfortable and very durable compared to the hard plastic kind. Which the dogs liked to chew on. Also it does not surround the head like the hard plastic cones which made the dog hot and uncomfortable. It also makes a nice pillow to rest their heads on.
The only downside is one of my Aussies, who because of chronic skin issues has to wear a cone frequently which he hates and is very adept at removing. Other than that, it does a satisfactory job at inhibiting licking and biting .

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 murphy a good product
I ordered this because my Gordon Setter was having a tumor removed from her tail and we needed to prevent her from pulling the stitches out, however, I should have gotten a larger one because she could still reach her tail. She seemed much more comfortable with this collar than the big E collars. Like the product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mmmm strap too loose
To close the collar snug, there is only about a 2 inches of velcro overlapping which is too weak to keep on my dog.
Epic fail on design.
If the velcro just ran the full length of the strap (an extra 4 inches), all would be good.

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 4 out of 5 by LibertyT Good product
I foster with Red Dirt Boxer Rescue and need an E-Collar often. Good product, more for older dogs. Puppy destroy collar in one day-not manufacturers problem, but mine. Going to see if I can patch it for my next foster.
