The ordering process was simple. It asked for photos of every angle and body part of your dog. (Getting or finding the photos was the more time-consuming portion.) Once you give characteristics about your dog, you have the option for sitting, lying down, or standing and how you want your pet’s mouth (opened or closed) and tail (excited or relaxed). With standard processing and shipping, the Cuddle Clone took around a month to arrive.
They got a lot of the personal touches spot on (no pun intended), like the pink coloring around his snout and freckles on his face. The pigment is almost identical, and the fur, especially on the Cavalier’s long floppy ears and tail, is very high quality. Of course, it doesn’t look 100% like a clone, but it’s pretty darn close. Even Georgie was impressed when he saw his twin (nearly the same size). We’re going to start using the Cuddle Clone as a training tool to pretend like it’s a fake dog and work on our doggy manners.– Sadie C., Canine Journal

What’s Our Final Verdict?
Cuddle Clones is a fun splurge, way cheaper than actually cloning your dog, a meaningful way to memorialize your beloved pet, and a fantastic gift option (they also offer gift cards). The plush replicas are pricey, but the quality and attention to detail are excellent. Most customer reviews we saw were very positive about the products.
Because of the high price of their stuffed replicas, you don’t want them to be a toy for your pet to destroy. So, if you don’t have many dog toys on hand, check out our reviews of the best dog toys and the most indestructible dog toys you can find.Tagged With: Review
