I had very humble beginnings when I first started Wag Tail Farms. I was a single woman and had no extra money to invest in my idea. I had no partners or donations. I was working a full time day job which didn't financially allow for much of anything extra. I had this idea of a product that would help not only my own dog but other dogs as well. When I started my dream of helping pets, I would sew until late every night and then get up again at 6:30am for my day job. I started out by donating every "Neck Hug®" so that I could gather feedback from my customers and just loved the pictures they were so generous to share of their pets wearing the "Neck Hug®". I eventually built a website and continued to make the best product I could. Suddenly, I had more orders than I could possible fill while working my day job. So you guessed it, I quit my job so that I could devote all my time to Wag Tail Farms! It has been a struggle to start my business but the feedback from my customers has me committed to all the sweet pets and providing them with the Best Ever,
"Neck Hug"®, Life Wellness Pillow for Pets.
I'm still working on new product features and letting the business grow. It's been a few years now and I still have crazy hours and sew into the night. Being tired never felt so good!
Wag Tail Farms is proving to be a great idea and each day I get to see that my labor of love and "not giving up" is making a difference in the lives of the precious pets I serve!

My dog Hunter was about 1 year old when he started to limp on his back right leg. His doctor found that he had a congenital hip disorder and recommend a surgical procedure called an "FHO", Femoral Head Ostectomy. He said it would allow Hunter to have a full and happy life once his leg healed and he was back to running and playing. After surgery, the hospital had placed a large protective cone on him. When we got home, Hunter wouldn't rest or lay down in his cozy bed. He was whimpering and looked scared! He was medicated so any pain was managed. I guessed that he was uncomfortable in the protective cone and I jumped into action to find an alternative. I love to sew and create fun things so I went to my sewing closet and focused on how I was going to get Hunter to rest. All I could picture was a donut shaped pillow around him so he could snuggle laying down on his tummy, sides or back. I had some left over fabric, some old pillow stuffing and started free hand drafting. I had no time to bother with any measurements and was sewing so fast. I could hear Hunter struggling and kept telling him that everything would be okay.
When I was finished sewing, I removed the protective cone and slipped the new donut shaped pillow gently over his head. I couldn't believe it, Hunter sweetly leaned down into his bed and snuggled his head into the new pillow and immediately drifted off to sleep. I sat up for hours to see that he was okay and I couldn't believe that something this simple was like "magic comfort"!
The next day, I took Hunter to his doctor for a post surgical visit. Hunter proudly wore his homemade protective pillow as I carried him in my arms and everyone at the office was so happy to see how comfortable he was and how great the pillow served him. Everyone wanted to know where I got this awesome pillow! The people in the waiting area, the receptionist staff and even the technicians and doctors came out the see what all the well-wishing was about. I was overwhelmed with this reception and Hunter was soaking in all the attention!
At that moment, the "Neck Hug®" was born (2008)! I just knew that other pets might be able to use this simple solution and I had to share my invention. I spent about 2-years discovering the safety features I insisted on providing in my products, legal paperwork, customer relations, etc...Whew!
It was ALL worth it because Hunter can run like the wind now, loves to play and jumps for joy when we go out for long walks. Thanks to his doctors and his first "Neck Hug®".
Once I built a website, I had a customer reach out to me to see if I would adapt my pillow to her pup's special needs. I was all in after learning everything I could about her pup that had esophageal concerns. This brought me to design the size Super "Neck Hug®" and most recently the "Esoph-A-Love®". The general public and several special needs dog groups on social media reached out to me as well and I will continue to try my best at finding unique ways to serve and fulfill my passion for animals in special need.
Note: The photo shown was taken well after Hunter healed from surgery and he was happy to model one of my copies of the original design. Unfortunately, I never got a photo of the original pillow. After Hunter was all healed, my other dog, who was very young, found it and thought it was a toy which she lovingly chewed to bits. Oh well, what's more important is that everyone was healthy and happy!
Barks & Hugs,

All of our pet pillow product orders are "handcrafted" and cannot be cancelled once your order has been placed. In addition, we do not accept returns or exchanges.
Although there are many reasons a customer may wish to cancel or return/exchange an order, such as the passing of a beloved pet, I love all animals so much and I want to make sure I can continue to offer my product and not have to close my doors due to expensed and completed orders left unpaid. There really is no easy answer when you want to be compassionate but still want to offer such a helpful product.
If you wish to have us donate your order to another customer, rescue or shelter, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred donation designation.

Wag Tail Farms has classified All of our "Neck Hug®" Products as humane pet restrictive devices. This means that the product helps to deter a pet from bothering a surgical site or chewing/licking their paws or other ailments. Our products are also available to provide head elevation for ongoing esophageal concerns such as a condition called MegaEsophagus. The pillow's purpose is to provide humane wellness, while a body area heals or for the necessary therapeutic support. As with any restrictive device, we recommend that all methods of pet wellness be discussed with your Veterinarian and added to their documentation of home care, which includes that the pet receives 100% supervision while wearing the product.
While within the scope of Safety, each of our products have been created with a "break-away" feature by installing "hook & loop" fabric fasteners at the pillow's opening. Should the pet become entangled with an object, the "break-away" fastener are intended to open the pillow, freeing the entangled object. Pet's are each very unique and can surprisingly out-smart us, so we recommend the cautious step of active supervision while wearing any restrictive device.
The "Neck Hug®" Products were NOT designed to use as a leash lead on walks. The safety "break-away feature at the opening of the pillow would not secure your dog if used as a secure attachment for your leash.
Product Materials: (Cotton, Cotton Blend, Refined Ponte Knit, Nylon RipStop, Nylon Strapping, Muslin, Hook & Loop Fastener Fabric and Flannel. Inside pillow material is Hypo-Allergenic Fiberfill)
All of the "Neck Hug" Products are designed to be home laundered. You may add the product to the washing machine on cool temperature, (remember to close the "hook & loop" side fasteners) using non-chlorine detergent and NO fabric softener. If a softener is necessary, just use a splash of plain white vinegar (this will also help with lingering foul pet odors). It will not leave a scent and works really good. When the wash cycle is finished, you may use the dryer on cool temperature to fluff dry.
Please wash your "Neck Hug" products often. Collected fabric dirt may promote pet skin issues, allergies and may even cause behavioral issues.
NOTE: Do Not Use Fabric Softener. This will render the "hook & loop" fasteners none adhesive.
Because all of our products are constructed with pillowy filling material (Hypo-Allergenic Fiberfill), the overall results are a soft cozy pillow. This can easily be mistaken as a toy to your pet. Please use caution to safely store the product when it is not in use to avoid having your pet accidentally rip or chew the pillow apart.
Additional Caution: Do Not exchange the fiberfill material inside the pillow with the bean bag type beads. This material tends to have a static electric property and could cause a choking hazard to your pet.
In the making of our products, we have purposely omitted the use of common pet choking hazards such as buttons, snaps, buckles, ties, elastic, hooks & eyes, cording or spring cord lock, shoe laces, filament type boning, PVC Coated Fabrics or other commonly known pet hazards.
Wag Tail Farms offers a humane well-care product for your pets. The "Neck Hug" is an "Open Face" designed pillow. This type of design offers a large variety of benefits for your pet such as being able to eat, drink, play, sleep and walk around freely as well as most commonly reported by our customers, a feeling of well-being and comfortable. But we also know that there are few areas that limit the use of our products. As we all know, our pets are very creative and unique when a problem presents itself. For instance, if your pet just had eye surgery, the "Neck Hug" which is an open faced designed product would only deter a busy foot from scratching the face area. It would not however, deter or prevent the pet from rubbing against the furniture or diving into the living room rug for a good scratch! Please assess your pet's needs when considering the "Neck Hug" for facial and head/ears protection.
While wearing the "Neck Hug", caution is also recommended for regular activities such as going up and down the stairs, jumping on or off furniture or using the doggie door. These actions may cause an unsafe outcome and we Recommend 100% Safe Supervision while your pet is wearing the "Neck Hug".
All of our "Neck Hug" Products are designed to be Humane Pet Health Aids and are expected to be used with the pet owner's supervision as well a their pet's Veterinarian approval when incorporating the product into the pet's daily routine.
Each of our "Neck Hug" Products are designed with safety in mind for your pet. However, we believe that not even our products, are a "magic remedy" to pet ailments. We Do Not offer any type of Guarantee of our products to cure, reverse disease or change a Veterinary diagnosis or your pet's overall health. We could never second guess your pet's personality, distinct body characteristics or health needs.
Each pet is a very unique and sometimes complex Beautiful Being on this Earth. Health concerns are equally mysterious and often times, require a host of care-giving attentions. Veterinarian prescribed Medications, physical therapy, food preparation, method of feeding such as upright positioning, massage, burp back-patting and a host of other modalities are sometimes required to benefit an ailing pet. It's for this reason that our pillow products used alone, are simply a pet betterment aid towards your current Veterinarian's Health Plan. All pet restrictive devices need to be approved by your Pet's Veterinarian!
