[NEW PRODUCT] How to Put a Bandana on Your Dog
Bandanas are an instant way to dress up your dog – without the discomfort of a full outfit. Not only do they look adorable on dogs of all coat types, breeds and sizes, they’re easily the most useful accessory you’ll add to your dog’s wardrobe.
Why Do People Put Bandanas On Dogs?
Bandanas are more than just a stylish accessory. Here’s how you can get more out of your dog’s cute digs:
- Mop up drool. For dogs with juicy jowls, like Bulldogs and Mastiffs, a bandana can catch drips before they hit the floor or furniture. You can also use the bandana to wipe your hands, or any stray puddles.
- Keep your dog cool. Dampen with cool water to keep your dog from overheating on hot summer days.
- Use calming spray. If your dog has anxiety, you can spritz a calming blend of essential oils onto their bandana to keep the soothing scent close to their nose. A calming spray like ThunderEssence can be used daily, or as needed on trips to the vet, during travel and other potentially stressful events.
- Apply flea and tick spray. Before you let your dog play outdoors, spray some flea and tick spray on your dog’s bandana. This works best with a natural spray, as some products are not meant to be used close to the nose and mouth. Thick neck fur is a favorite hiding spot for bugs that bite, so this method can serve as extra protection for your dog. You’ll need to spray the rest of their body, too, though, or use a sprayed bandana in conjunction with another protective product.
How To Put A Bandana On Your Dog
It’s easy to tie a bandana around your dog’s neck. Simply lay it flat, printed side down. Fold it diagonally, into a triangle. Then, take the two corners along the folded edge, bring them together, and tie a simple knot.
As with collars, bandanas should never be left around a dog’s neck while they are crated or unattended. In rare instances, a bandana may get caught on something, and your dog may tangle themselves even more trying to escape, which can lead to strangulation.
Also take care if you have other pets, or if you ever take your dog to a dog park. During play, one dog’s teeth can get caught in another’s bandana, which could also pose a strangulation hazard.
A tight fit is not necessary. Allow at least enough space for you to fit two fingers between the bandana and your dog’s neck without pressing into their skin. You can even leave it loose enough to slip over their head if pulled. That way, in the event the bandana gets snagged on something, your dog would be able to wriggle their way out.
