I bought this for my four month old pitbull prior to being neutered. We blew it up and placed it around his neck and he thought it was pretty cool. He never had any problems and it worked perfectly. He would have been very scared of the regular cone of shame. But this allowed him so much freedom, plus he was safer in the kennel. He couldn't have been in his kennel with the cone. The only negatives are it's difficult to put air in and I encourage you to put your pets collar in before you blow it up.
Worked OK but...

My dog was too stressed by cone collar after surgery. I researched and found these Kong Clouds. They are good but I should have bought larger size. Based on another review, I decided on 2 together because my dog has a long-ish neck. They worked fine with a couple of caveats: I hadn't known that I should thread my dog's collar through the tabs in the CLoud collar. I could barely get the fastenings through the tabs. WHen regular collar was in place, the Cloud wouldn't fasten as well as I wanted, leaving a gap of a few inches. My dog figured how to twist the collars around so that the gap was under her chin and could get to her incision! WIsh I'd known ahead of time.

Perfect after neuter

We got this collar for our 7 month golden retriever when he got neutered and it's worked amazing so far. He could not navigate with the E collar, so we were so glad we bought this. It stays on great because it loops around the dogs collar, and just inflates with air. The reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because link can wiggle just enough to get to his stitches, but he has to reach super hard to get there. However, I highly recommend this!!
He still got to his stitches...

I absolutely love this as to an alternative to the cone, especially since I have a corgi and the traditional cone he drags on the floor since he’s so low to the ground and with cloud collar he has soooo much freedom! He can run around, chill and snooze comfortably.. but I spoke to soon. He got to his stitches so easily. We alternate with the traditional and this collar, when he’s being supervised, we put on the collar and when’s not, back to the cone!

I bought this collar for our elderly Shih Tzu who had an abscess on her front foot. Standard surgical collars didn't work for her since she's so low to the ground. This collar was the perfect solution! We didn't need to inflate it completely so she was very comfortable wearing it but still could not reach her front foot. She was able to eat, drink and sleep comfortably while wearing it. It probably would not work for dogs with longer legs and snouts but if was perfect for her. Thank you Chewy for your wonderful product selection and service!
Lasted less than an hour

The collar was lightweight since you blow it up like an air tube and less cumbersome than the Elizabethean Collar. The problem is the air plug would not go inside the plastic so my puppy was able to reach it and chewed it within an hour of having the collar on. Tried taking the plastic out and stuff with tissues and socks but made it heavy. Also Bentley was able to stick his leg between the collar and neck. Very disappointed in the product and surprised since it was a KONG product.

I wanted to try this product in place of the previous collar I was using. My cat
has food allergies and collars help keep him from getting to his hot spots. The
previous collar would only last about 1-2 months. I liked the concept of this new
collar, but it just didn't work for my kitty. I believe it would work for the right
situation, probably best for dogs. I don't like giving a rating for this product just
because it didn't work for my situation.
Recovery after spay

Excellent product! Would give 5 stars if it would come a bit thicker than rounded on the edges. Or shoulder pads. This makes the "donut" a bit easy to move their head around aiming for the surgical site.
Easy to inflate and deflate as well as wash. Best part are the belt loops to insert a common collar through so the donut doesn't come off because of the custom fit of their usual collar. And you would have something to latch a lead on to walk the dog for relief or mild exercise. Retrofitted with a thick tube sock so the Velcro wouldn't be uncomfortable. And makes it nicer for her to sleep in like a neck pillow.
Outstanding Control, Comfort & Cleaning

The Cloud is the solution to the stress and inconvenience of the typical Cone Collar.
My dog has a Lick Granuloma which the cloud has put "just enough" interference to prevent paw access and stop the licking anxiety allowing the healing to begin.
You dog can eat, drink, play and any other activity of the day without inhibitor's.
Kong has done it again and created the best dog toy and now the best dog cone/cloud.
A must have!

Bought the XLarge for my 104 lbs., 10 month French mastiff pup, after neutering. Soooo much better than the hard plastic cone and fits great. He can sleep, drink, and walk around without any issues with this on. The Velcro scares him slightly when taking it off, but doesn't seem to mind when putting it on or wearing it. He is able to sleep comfortably... the snoring proves it! He does appear to have the ability to reach the incision area but not easily, and it definitely deters him. I use this in conjunction with a one-piece surgical suit at night. No problems.
