PupLid dog hats are designed with comfort and adjustability in mind to provide a custom fit for each dog’s unique head shape and size. Combining fun and vibrant graphics along with maximum size customization, PupLid hats are as stylish as they are functional.

The Furfect Fit®  System

We started PupLid to provide stylish sun protection for pets of all sizes, but dogs' heads vary greatly from breed to breed unlike our round human domes.

For this to work, it was essential that the hat stay in place. We didn't like how other dog hats stayed on - they sat too far back, restricted ear movement or used helmet straps(!) with buckles that pulled on the fur. No wonder why dogs don't like to wear (those) hats.

We created a new, streamlined design to allow maximum adjustability while keeping the ears free and the hat securely in place. We call this the Furfect Fit :)

  • Strong Elastic Loop

    Elastic loop is anchored to the four corners of the hat to provide superior stability during activity.

  • Soft Velcro Chinstrap

    Velcro chinstrap provides extra length adjustability while sliding back and forth along the elastic cord to fit each dog's unique neck and head.

  • Locking Slider

    Once the chinstrap is properly positioned under the chin, the slider locks it in place. This slider can also be removed for dogs with larger necks and heads to improve the fit.

  • Step 1

    Open the velcro chinstrap and place the PupLid on your dog's head. Gently pull their ears through the elastic loop on each side.

  • Step 2

    Fasten the chinstrap under your dog's chin making sure to leave about two fingers of space between the chinstrap and your dog's neck - secure but not tight. To remove the hat, unfasten the chinstrap and gently lift the hat off your dog's head.

  • Step 3

    Adjust the position of the PupLid by sliding the chinstrap forward or back along the elastic loops. The hat brim should sit over the eyes to provide the desired shade, so pull the hat forward and adjust the chinstrap accordingly.

  • Step 4

    Once the right position is found, slide the side toggles down to lock the chinstrap position in place.

    For Dogs with longer heads, bigger ears or thicker necks, removing the side toggles often helps - see below.

  • Unsnap Chinstrap

    Remove the chinstrap from the elastic loops by unsnapping the buttons.

  • Remove Side Toggle

    Slide off the side toggles from the elastic loops on both sides of the puplid.

  • Snap on Chinstrap

    Snap the chinstrap back onto the elastic loops. Result is a larger ear opening for more freedom of ear movement.
