When HooRag Bandanas contacted me and offered a couple of their dog bandanas to try, I looked at their web site and thought: what fun! Though we're not keen on costuming our dogs, both Jeffie and Rudy enjoy wearing bandanas. Rudy, especially.
HooRag Bandanas are not at all your ordinary bandana. They are a seamless cotton-polyester blened micro-fiber that is light weight, moisture wicking, and fun to wear.
Originally designed for people, as opposed to canines, Florida based, Hoo-Rag bandanas are popular with snow boarders, snow skiers, runners, mountain bikers, hikers, and more. People use them as a traditional bandana, a beanie, neck gaiter, face mask and more. A real plus for outdoor types, they're good for putting a barrier between your head and the elements.
Dogs, of course, wear them to be stylish and cool.
Well, dogs other than mine.
Our two sample HooRag Bandanas arrived very quickly, individually wrapped in attractive packaging. One is a red and white design of the HooRag logo; the other is a pretty dog-gone cute brown and tan dog bone design. The fabric is smooth and silky. The HooRag tube design is just a little stretchy.
Both Jeffie and Rudy were interested and ready to try them on.
That's when I discovered that my dogs have fat necks! Okay, not fat necks, so much as Jeffie and Rudy are just too big to wear the HooRag bandana comfortably.
Once on, Jeffie immediately wanted that thing off. Too tight.
Jeffie's eyes are pleading with the Dog Daddy:
Please make her stop and take this off.
Check out that double chin! (giggle)
This photo shows the fit.
Our recommendation? Very cute way to doll up your dog, as long as your dog is not an 80 pound and up, large breed dog. No doubt about it - if our dogs were just a tad smaller, we think we'd truly love the HooRag Bandanas.
HooRag Bandanas come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. Cost is $14.95, including shipping, on the HooRag Bandana web site. They are also available in custom patterns. You can order wholesale and even use your own logo or artwork. Great idea for a dog event! I can just see these on some Greyhounds... (slender necks, you know)
