Some people have reported success with an infant's onesie instead of using an Elizabethan Collar or "cone of shame."
There is an inflatable cone available, but whatever you choose to use, be sure that the puppy cannot reach the stitches with his mouth or tongue.
Some dogs do not bother their stitches at all, and some won't leave them alone. When I fed Buster or gave him water, I took off the cone so he could eat and drink. I also took it off so we could go for a walk more easily.
The rest of the time - including in his crate at night - the cone was on.
