I feel like my American Bully would deatroy this thing in a day. Is it pretty durable!
Answer by ChewyJun 13, 2017
While being a chew toy is not it's main intent, many Chewy family members have had success transitioning new puppies with it and have found it helpful for pups ranging in size from labs and huskies to dachsunds and pugs. We'd suggest monitoring your bully carefully with it. We're here night and day with suggestions for pups of all kinds so never hesitate to bark our way when you need us.

My new puppy was Just pulled from his litter mates on Saturday and weened from the mother Thursday. Would this be a good item to help him cope.
Answer by ChewyJun 26, 2017
This item is perfect for puppies who have been recently separated from their litter mates. Its simulated heartbeat and warming components will calm your dog through his own instinctual responses during nap times and through the night.

Can this be put into the dryer?
Answer by ChewyMar 10, 2018
Your snuggle puppy is machine washable on gentle cycle using mild detergent. You will also want to air dry the snuggle puppy. Please refrain from using fabric softener as it can degrade the Velcro. Don’t forget to remove the heartbeat and heat pack prior to washing.

On the smart pet love snuggle puppy. The heating pad do you microwave them or squeeze to activate? Also is there an on off button.
Answer by ChewyFeb 16, 2019
You can switch the heartbeat function on and off as desired and batteries are included. This toy shouldn't be placed in the microwave.

Brio is in love

I purchased this toy for my 2-year-old rescue who I adopted five months ago. He's adjusted very well but still has some separation anxiety, so I thought I'd give this a try. He absolutely loves his snuggle puppy. I only used the heartbeat function the first time I introduced him to it because he became completely mesmerized, and I was worried he was getting a little too possessive around my cats. Things calmed down after I removed the heart, thankfully. He loves his many stuffed toys, but the snuggle puppy quickly became his favorite. He brings it to bed every night.

My puppy has cried every time she’s been in her kennel, it could be for 5 minutes or a couple hour, it doesn’t matter how long she will Bark nonstop until we caved and let her out. However, She has been in her kennel for over an hour and not a single bark! This toy is seriously the best. I urge all pet parents to buy this if they have a puppy that has anxiety. We leave her toy in her kennel and she walks in there voluntarily and sleeps with her puppy toy. Her kennel is becoming her favorite spot because of this! This is a must have!!

Adorable, durable & effective

I've bought 3 of these in all of the color combos - 2 for my own pups and one for my fur niece as a welcome to her new home gift to ease her transition. All 3 were a huge hit. Curious about the heartbeat, there was initial antics, but shortly thereafter the pups mouthed it and ultimately calmed and fell asleep with it. Always concerned about toys and stuffing, etc. the velcro belly closure for the heart insert is REALLY strong...kind of hard to get into even for people, but doesn't cause me worry about the pups choking. Pricey but worth it if you have an anxious pup for any reason.

Snuggle Puppy

My breeder recommended I have one of these for my baby shih tzu when I brought him to his forever home for the first time. It is his absolute FAVORITE toy ever!!! He is almost 2 years old & is now on his third one! I only put the heart in his first one to help him transition to his new home. Worked great!!! Now he is fine without it. Highly recommend this for new additions to your family!!! Your fur baby will love it!!!

My puppy did not care about it

This toy didnt elicit any meaningful reaction from my puppy, other than some chewing. Her behavior in her crate did not change depending upon whether or not the toy was in there, whether the heartbeat was on or whether it was warm. I think it was still worth trying, and its probably a good toy for dogs that react well to it. Unfortunately it was ineffective on my pup.

Macie and Salliedog

Since the loss of her brother, Hank, his sister Macie was so deeply grieved that she became sick with pancreatitis. I bought this Smart Pet as a substitute brother. It has helped so much. She loves it and has become the pom she was before we lost our Hank. Here are some pictures of her with her “Salliedog”.

Great surrogate momma

We bought the snuggle puppy to help our new puppy transition from being in a litter of 9 to being by herself in a new home. We rubbed the Snuggle Puppy all over the momma dog when we picked up the puppy. Between the heartbeat feature and smelling her momma, our pup sleeps all night in her crate snuggled up to her snuggle puppy. We use it in the day during crate training also, without activating the heartbeat function. Haven’t used the heat pack because it’s summer.

First purchased the kit (Smart Pet Love New Puppy Starter Kit, Neutral) Loved it and purchased just the behavioral puppy for a friend who was on a fund raising event for 6 weeks. Friend slept for weeks - giving her scent to toy. It worked so well! Other than... husband had dog and toy puppy to sleep with (hee-hee)! The puppy is VERY, VERY well made. No seams to burst. Sturdy! Suggest buying a color near your dog. THIS IS WONDERFUL So is CHEWY!!!! Thay are the best!

Best toy invented

Today my poodle puppy carried his snuggle puppy out of his kennel, jumped on the couch, and lay his head on it and went to sleep. He has had it from the day we brought him home. His first night he only whimpered twice and then slept the entire night

My Buddy’s Buddy

I got this for my puppy when we brought him home. We have named Her Ethel and he still takes her everywhere a year later. She is now dingy and covered in patches from much play and many washes, so getting him a second one for his 1 year bday.
