Bold flowing river satin show dog snood in blues, or reds.

The main reason for getting snood for you dog is to keep hair and ears out of their food and water bowls. Snoods are an essential part of your show dog kit, and the easiest way to keep your show dog's ear clean and tidy, stop ear chewing and reduce grooming time on show day. 

Snoods are also ideal for long-eared dogs, keeping the ears tucked away and preventing injury e.g the basset hound, or when liquid medication is required in the ears a snood will stop liquid being spread around the house when they sake or rub their head.

Snood Size: Where to measure your dog?

The snood fits over the head and neck. The head elastic sits just in front of the dogs ears, at the back of the skull and the neck end should sit about ¾ down the neck or about where a standard flat collar would – depending on the snood type and purpose. Make sure it’s not too tight. It should fit snugly without causing any pressure on your dog's head or neck. The neck elastic is approx 2-5cm more than the neck, to allow for comfort. Never use a snood smaller than your dog’s head - it will be too tight and cause discomfort to your dog

5 Sizes Based On Head Circumference taken just front of the ears (these are approx) Fabric width is generally twice the head elastic size and the length is generally 2-5cm longer.

Wearing A Snood:

While most show dog's start wearing snoods from a young age pet often need a little encouragement to keep it on. Simply scrunch the snood up in your hands and place over your dog’s head, tucking the ears in. The head elastic sits just in front of the ears, at the back of the skull and the neck elastic should sit about where a standard flat collar would go. Make sure it’s not too tight. It should fit snugly without causing any pressure on your dog's head or neck

If they need a little more encouragement to keep the snood on, the easiest way to get your dog used to wearing a snood is to offer positive reward. Dogs are smart, it won't take long to work out they get rewards for doing nothing. With a treat in your hand, put the snood on your arm, as your dog takes the treat move the snood onto his head and reward again or place his dinner in front of him. It won’t take long before you can slip the snood on right before meals without any fuss as they associate the snood with dinner time. And of course no more food stuck in his ears, means less grooming for you.

 

Show Snoods - light weight or satin type fabric

Everyday Snoods- these are a medium weight fabric e.g. cotton for harder wearing for everyday use. But still suitable for show days.

All sNoodZ have a reinforced elastic finish at at both ends. The neck elastic is slightly looser than the head for added comfort. The elastic is sewn in similar to a waist band and is unseen. The advantage is that the elastic will not twist or break. This is a permanent method and sNoodZ are not adjustable, please check the size guide before ordering. (Alternative finishing e.g. casing, or darts, is available upon request for an additonal $5 per item)

So that your whole team can match, we offer a "show team discount" when ordering 3 ormore of the same sNoodZ when you order online at NZShowDogs
