I was very skeptical about this product, but to my surprise it worked the very first night!!! I was dealing with a very noisy puppy and was not getting any sleep. After I bought this product it's almost a chore getting my dog out of her kennel because she doesn't want to leave her new stuffy! Lol Plus no more whining!!!
This product is the best thing invented for puppies. The first night we brought our puppy, Frank home we figured we would not have any sleep. However, once we put his Snuggle Puppy in his crate, he slept all night. The heat pack worked great and it stayed warm all night long. The heartbeat sounds just like his momma and litter mates. A must have for a small pup. We used to put an alarm clock in with our pups years ago. This is much better and it makes them feel more secure. Highly recommend.
I purchased the Snuggle Puppy in preparation for adopting my new puppy. It's warmth and comforting heartbeat helped her settle easily into her new home. Unfortunately, my husband became ill and I had to give her back to the breeder. I sent her puppy along with her, and I am told it helped her adjust to her former home. So heartbroken to have to do this, but life isn't alway fair, and I had to think of the puppy's well-being, too.
Highly recommend this!! Puppy slept through the night with Snuggle Puppy in his kennel.
We brought home a new puppy who was having trouble settling in her crate. The snuggle puppy was a game changer!
Definitely a must for a new puppy to help with separation anxiety, adjusting to new environment and crate training.
After about a week, the heartbeat does not stay on a full 8 hrs. The opening to the heartbeat battery compartment is like trying to get into Fort Knox, almost impossible! The Velcro is heavy duty; so much so that I almost break my nails trying to pry it open. Because of the difficulty to access the heartbeat 'on' button is why I gave it a three. I have not used the heat packs yet as it is too warm now.
My dog did not whine at all at night. I had her kennel in my bedroom and this dog in there for her and she did great!
We got a 7 week old Olde English Bulldogge puppy, who is now 10 weeks old. He is very mouthy and constantly has to be chewing on something. The first night we put him in his crate with his litter mates blanky and this puppy with the heat and heartbeat. He slept for 4 hours before needing to go out. That continued the entire first 2 weeks. We stopped using the heat after the 3rd night and he didn't seem to care. Since then, our nightly routine is play, potty, teddy in crate with heartbeat, and we put him in just after he falls asleep so that he is a bit sleepy. He lays right down and usually sleeps about 6 hours before needing a potty break. During the day we leave the crate open to encourage him taking naps in it. He doesn't but he does go into the crate and drag his teddy out and down the hall to play with and nap beside. He's had two accidents and had to wash it and dry it. He is very aggressive with it during play. Even trying to pull up the velcro. It is still completely intact and enjoyed though. I hope it stays intact as he gets older because he will be an 80lb dog carrying around his teddy. I almost wish it was a teddy just because that's what we've named it.
My puppy really loves his little Snuggle Puppy pal! He sleeps with him and plays with him during the day! The heartbeat seems to really calm him down at night. Highly recommended!
