Dog Collar And Leash Fit & Sizing Guide

 The sizes below are for the top measurement of the bandana and from the top to the point. We recommend measuring your dog’s collar or around their neck to obtain the correct size. Also, you may want to go a size up if your dog has a thick coat or if they are barrel-chested.

Measure the thickest part of your dog's neck. The thickest part is generally located at the base of the neck right below where her collar would sit. Use a piece of ribbon or string to mark and then measure it with a ruler or standard tape measure. If your pet is between sizes or is extra fluffy, then choose the larger size.

Tips

How to Use
1. Tie the bandana around your dog’s neck. You will want the bandana to rest gently against the coat rather than push into it. You can always tie it a little tighter to ensure the perfect fit.
2. Snap the ends together for a secure fit.

Safety Tips
For the safety of your pup, it is recommended that you supervise your pup(s) while wearing any pet accessories. Do not tie the bandana too tight or too loose. And when your pet goes to eat, flip the bandana over their back.

Care
Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to air dry. For a perfect bandana, iron flat, without the claps. For personalized or vinyl bandanas, iron on the reverse side. DO NOT iron directly on vinyl.
