This apricot satin show snood is handy when grooming it will keep your dogs ears up and out of the way so you can easily work on the neck and shoulders. Snoods also protect the coat and ears, keeping everything clean and preventing ears form trailing on the ground or from falling into feeding and water bowls. Ideal aid to keep a show dogs coat in top condition and keeping ears dry and free from saliva especially in large breeds!

Made from satin fabric this dog snood has 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, great for dogs who are on a raw food diet, stop ear chewing and reduce grooming time on show day. Perfect ear protectors for long ear dog breeds, such as Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels, Springers & Setters etc

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

Elastic Finish

All snoods have elastic at the head and neck, the neck is generally 3-5 cm's wider than the head to allow for comfort.


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.

If you only use a snood pre showing use the same method but using a small dog treat rather than a whole meal.
