Supporting Small Businesses: As if that wasn’t enough, all the bandanas in this guide are created by small business owners on Etsy. So you’ll be and supporting them through these unprecedented times.
Things to Consider
The most important thing to consider before getting a bandana is whether or not your dog is happy and comfortable wearing a Christmas dog bandanas. Most dogs are relaxed but if your dog shows any signs of stress, then don’t force them to wear it.
When measuring the dog’s neck, bandanas should be loose enough for you to comfortably slip at least two fingers between their neck and the bandana. This is to make sure the bandana is not restricting their breathing or movement.
So now that we’ve preached the goodness of this great accessory, and important things to consider let’s dive into our ‘edit’ of Christmas dog bandanas.
