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 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 behind the ears (these are approx)
|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
