My dog had a cyst removed from his leg. Within the first 10 hrs he knocked the water bowl over 3 times with his cone. He couldnt eat or drink with the cone and I know he would lick his knee with out protection. The Kong collar is the trick. He could eat, drink and sleep with it on. He didnt fight about putting it on like the cone. And he has a pillow to sleep on everywhere he goes. And he couldnt reach his wound.
Kong Cloud works - sort of ...

The product was delivered by Chewy in a timely manner and as promised. Our dog has two areas that we are trying to keep him from licking and biting (his right front paw and his left rear leg). We need to do this so we can apply ointments and other medicine and allow these sores to heal. With the Kong Cloud, he is still able to lick at the front foot without too much trouble. The rear leg is harder for him to reach, so I think the Cloud is effective for that area of his body. The dog is a male Basset Hound.
Convenient, comfortable and better than cone of shame!
on Oct 15, 2017
My girl is forever doing something that requires her to wear the cone of shame. She hates it! And literally pouts when I have to put it on and it makes me feel awful. So I logged onto chewy and found this awesome cloud collar by Kong. It is affordable and seems to be doing the job perfectly! It is inflatable, so you have to blow it up when you receive it. But my girl is not particularly destructive and is very respectful that way so for us it has worked perfect. Such a better alternative than the cone of shame and she is MUCH happier with it on. She can still drink and eat, which is great. I would definitely recommend this to others.
Worked well with my dog

My dog is a 20 lb poodle/ Bishon. I went with the medium and glad i did because it fits perfectly. She had surgery on her face. When she scratches it is on the Kong and she cant reach her face. It appears to be very comfortable, and sleeps well with it on. She can eat and drink and play with it on which is good because she has had complacations and is having to wear it fot at least 3 weeks...so i highly recommend this product!

I bought this pillow for my dog after getting stitches on his back and back leg, he did great with it. He wasn't able to reach the stitches and it made it much calmer than the hard plastic hood. When he had the hard plastic hood he seemed to be depressed a bit. Once I put this on him and he could see everything going on around him, he perked right up. Glad I invested in this item! I would recommend it!

Our dog has a chronic granuloma on the top of a front paw. It's a constant battle keeping him away from it. The traditional cone collar is so horrible and we have tried so many other approaches, all to no avail. Given that the Cloud Collar was somewhat inexpensive, we thought we'd give it a try. Within five minutes of wearing it, our dog was lying on the floor happily licking the granuloma, blood once again oozing. I can see this collar working if the wound or hot spot is in another location; but, in this case, the collar provided a gentle cushion on which our dog could rest his head while licking the granuloma.
Did not hold up
on Oct 14, 2017
The reasons I purchased this after an ear cropping for our Great Dane puppy was because 1.) Kong is a GREAT company 2.)Chewy.com price is LOW & 3.) our multiple Great Danes have not been able to tear up anything by Kong!
BUT, even though it was a perfect fit, our pup was able to chew a tiny hole in the collar so that it no longer hold air, within 36 hours--a Kong failure :-(
(Chewy.com gave a full refund Great customer service!)
Not for Mini Aussie pup

Would de a great item if the air intake would completely stay in place and be concealed. Last 1 day with our 6 mt old puppy. Purchased for use after surgery on 11-14-17. Pup bit the air plug off of the inlet after pulling out of the collar due to it not going completely in as on a beach ball or air mattress.
Better than the old cones of shame
on Oct 15, 2017
My puppy got spayed and this product was great. It didnt interfere with her periferal vision and she was able to eat and navigate much better than with the standard cone. It was a little big, but I put her collar through the loops and it was perfect. Its inflatable so easy to store after use. It didnt bother her to wear it at all. Just like a little neck pillow for dogs and kept her from getting to her sutures.
Dog could still reach lower legs
on Oct 5, 2017
My dog was spayed and had surgery on her lower legs. While this product kept her from reaching her spay stitches, she could still reach her lower legs/paws while wearing the Cloud collar. I ended up using an extended length Comfy Cone, which kept her from reaching her lower leg stitches. However, I will keep this cone and would use it if she ever has abdominal or back injuries. It would even be great for my dog to wear on long car trips as a pillow or to keep her from putting her head out the window!
