Abdominal strap to secure inflatable collar on pet.Proud Pup inflatable collars with unique abdominal strap!

We believe in doggy dignity! No more “cone of shame” for your loyal canine friends. New in South Africa with nation wide delivery!

Seeing our furry family looking sorry for themselves is heartbreaking and we just could not take it any more.

  • They cannot see properly and that is scary for them.
  • Eating and drinking is difficult, if not impossible.
  • Sleeping is very uncomfortable.
  • They keep bumping into everything and knocking things over.
  • Moving is awkward, especially in tighter spaces that they normally can zoom through.

So we decided to find a solution. No more sad pets like these poor guys…

Our Proud Pup inflatable doggy collar gives your best friend their dignity back.

Our business started after the owners’ own rescue rottie had to be spayed. She had been abused as a puppy and confiscated by the SPCA before we adopted her.

Little Bella was terrified by the cone of shame she had to wear after her spaying operation and so we investigated a more humane solution. Lo and behold, we found the right product for her.

She could happily wear her inflatable collar, without limiting her vision or bashing into everything as she walked about the house. Her operation site healed up beautifully because she was restricted from licking the wound by the inflatable dog collar, while still having her dignity and not being freaked out by a huge plastic cone.
