Black & White Show Dog Snood is a light weight fabric ideal for show dogs in the summer heat. 

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. 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 dogs head - it will be to tight and cause discomfort to your dog.

5 Sizes Based On Head Circumference taken just in front of the ears (these are approx)

  • Xtra Small:     20cm un-stretched elastic e.g. Maltese, Poodles
  • Small:             25cm un-stretched elastic e.g. Cavalier King Charles

2 types of snood:

Show Snoods - light weight or satin fabric
Everyday Snoods - Still suitable for show days, these are a medium weight fabric e.g. cotton for harder wearing for everyday use.

All sNoodZ are have a reinforced elastic finish at the head and neck, the neck is generally 3-5 cm's wider than the head. 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, check the size guide under 'specifications' before ordering.

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.

Wearing A Snood

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.
