How 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 elastic should sit about where a standard flat collar would go. Make sure it’s not too tight. We suggest you add 2cm to your measurements to ensure it won't be too tight around your dogs head. It should fit snugly without causing any pressure on your dog's head or neck.The elastic at the neck is generally 2-5cm more than the head

Getting Your Dog Used To 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 above 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.
Or 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 wont take long to work out there 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.
If you only use a snood pre showing use the same method but using a small dog treat rather than a whole meal.
