Snuggle Bugs by Petflys Review

I really have a super product to share with you from Pet Flys called the Snuggle Bug. And yes, it's for a dog or a cat and can be used for many different things, depending on what you need it for at any given time.

Here are some main features:
  • Compact super-soft pet carrier with pillow & blankie
  • Roll down sides put the pillow in for a snuggly pet bed
  • Pillow in & strap over car headrest for a car seat
  • Attach strap in last "O" ring for a deep sack-type pet carrier
  • Open carrier completely & put pillow on bottom for a cozy burrow bed.
  • Made in the USA
As you can see, Charlie wasn't very happy to be in his Snuggle Bug carrier/bed.
I do have to admit, he has never been in anything like this, so he will get used to it.
Which is why I had to hold onto this review for awhile because he was not cooperating at all!
I think as far as a carrier for Charlie, he is going to be a little too big for that but it is a perfect size as a car seat, but again, we are still working with him on that, too.
We have never had him in anything so I am not too concerned, it just will take some time for him to get used to it. He usually stays in the back seat with his blanket and some of his stuffed animals or he sits in one of our laps, whoever is not driving. But, I think we can ease him into using this as a car seat, especially since he loves to see what is going on while we are out driving. Charlie is going to be 8 in June so he is set in his ways and I bet if we had this Snuggle Bug when he was a puppy, he would have taken to it instantly. I would recommend starting out while they are young and aren't set in their ways.
Here are some pictures from Pet Fly's site so you can get a better idea of how it's suppose to work:

I think with a little more time and training, Charlie will come around but I couldn't wait much longer on this review, so I am doing it without having had too much to show you. I do have to say that he does use the little red blanket that came with the Snuggle Bug.

Once I get him to sit in the Snuggle Bug in the car, I will update all of this. Also, if you turn it on it's side, it becomes a really nice place for them to sleep in or hide.

There are actually 8 different colors/patterns you can choose from and the one we got is called the Rock Lobster. As you can see there are Lobsters on this design which makes it unique. The others are just as beautiful and will fit whatever personality that your dog has.
Along with the Snuggle Bug, they sent Charlie a few other goodies which he really loved! He is a sucker for toys.
As you can see from all three of the following pictures, he went nuts over knowing that Mike had something for him and he was jumping up and down trying to get to them.
The first package had two items in them that were owls and one was round and the other one was like a ring with a hole in the middle.
The second package had 4 different colored flowers in the package and Charlie went crazy over them also. I let him have 2 of them for now and am saving the other two for Christmas. Both sets of toys make excellent toys for small dogs to play with!

They are the cutest things I have seen in a long time and Charlie really has had a lot of fun playing with all of them! 
The other little goodies that they put inside the Snuggle Bug were a keychain and a small bag of treats. Of course, the keychain was for me and Charlie loved the treats and it made the perfect package! The treats were a Super Berry Blend and Charlie ate them up pretty quick!

 I love my keychain and it's on with my set of keys and I get a lot of compliments on it and people ask me all the time where did I get it.

My camera doesn't take the best pictures of silver objects for some odd reason, so it doesn't due justice to this keychain, so take my word for it, it's really beautiful.

A little bit about Pet Flys:
Pet Flys, is the loving creation of Tammy Ann Arnett, a clever designer with many years of experience in the garment industry.  Tammy admits she was once exclusively a big-dog lover. That was until she rescued a charming, abandoned miniature pinscher she soon came to know and love as "Monkey Boy".   
After Tammy adopted Monkey Boy, she searched diligently for a pet travel bag to accommodate her new cohort to no avail.  Frustrated by the huge gap between flimsy, poorly-crafted low-end bags and prissy, ridiculously-priced high-end bags, she decided to create the perfect combination of style and function in pet carriers herself.  Tammy combined her own funky, cool, rock n' roll style with the most comfy, durable fabrics on the market.  
Launched in 2003, Pet Flys has become the industry's most hip, modern line of airline-approved pet carriers.   Since then the Pet Flys family has grown quite a bit and there are now three sizes of Pet Flys carriers (91 mini, 101 small and 201 super) and many hot new carrier designs as well as coordinating Ready~2~Ride apparel.
Did you know that some of the products at Pet Flys has been used in:
Pet Flys bags have recently been sought-out to make guest-starring appearances in some of Hollywood's hottest projects, including; "Ugly Betty", "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and an upcoming Disney feature being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
