Hiya Pupster Posse! I received a Pittie Puff for a product review, so here’s the scoop:
Here’s the scoop:
The Product: Pittie Puffs are hand-made, hand-woven washable neck warmers to keep pups necks warm in cooler weather, or to help pups with anxiety. Pittie Puffs tells us “It’s a hug around the neck!”
The Materials: Designed for comfort, flexibility, and versatility, Pittie Puffs are made from soft nylon yarn and thread that are designed to hold shape.
The Company: Pittie Puffs is run by pittie pup CEO Junior and his momma designer/knitter Kim Connelly. It’s a small woman-owned business based in Pennsylvania, who likes to give back by helping out pups in need.
Comfort Factor: 5 Stars ( 1 star = get this off of me! 5 stars = I don’t want you to take it off – I think I’ll
take a dognap!) – Mommers expected me to scratch and itch with the Puff on my neck, but it’s form fit was loose enough for me to breathe and move quite comfortably, while snug enough so it didn’t feel like a cat or bug was dangly from my neck (yes, my kitty Zaida does this to me!)
Wearability Factor: 5 Stars (1 star = awkward/bad fit, 5 stars = great/proper fit) – We were surprised that the puff did not come with a hole for a leash, but after trying it on, we realized there wasn’t a need for a hole! My collar fits above or just inside, so I can still practice my leash manners while wearing my Pittie Puff! After wearing for extended periods, it may need to to be washed to return to like-new shaping.
Fashion Factor: 5 Stars – Pittie Puffs come in a variety of colors, or you can choose custom colors to match your favorite outfit or personality! It’s long enough to scrunch just a little bit and cover the entire neck from just under the ears to the top of the shoulders. I am able to wear the Pittie Puff with my vest or a sweater.
Durability Factor: 4 Stars (1 star = destroyed instantly, 5 stars= indestructible) – I waited a few weeks to publish my review because I wanted to see how my PittiePuff would hold up. I’m a pretty active pup, so I was able to wear my pup in all sorts of situations. After playing, sleeping, eating, and working in my puff, it’s still in great shape and in one piece! The knitted materials are still holding together strong, even after going through the washing machine monster – no strings or yard coming out (Mommers washed it on gentle medium and laid it flat to air dry).
Here’s the final say:
The Pro’s – Check out my star ratings! There’s no doubt I wuv my Pittie Puff!
The Con’s – Because this product is hand-woven with soft yarn, it’s not the best to wear for extremely rough play, or play where it might get snagged! I’m allowed to play in the yard with my puff, but not allowed to play with big sticks or crawl into the bushes (ok ok, I like to drag mini-trees across the yard!)
Sizing Recommendations: We gave Pittie Puffs my neck size, and they made a custom puff based on that. My head is pretty big, but not huge. The first time getting it on we had to pull just a bit, as it wasn’t broken in yet. Because the puff is hand-made, we recommend a puff that is a bit bigger than neck size if your head is significantly larger than your neck. Of course, we think Pittie Puffs will be glad to assist in sizing questions.
Note: A PittiePuff was provided to us in exchange for a honest review.
