Breed suggestions are a rough guide only - all dogs are unique! Your dog may fit more than one of our sizes, and your choice will depend on whether you prefer longer or shorter tie ends.
The measurements given here are not measurements for the neck circumference of your dog. The long edge goes around your dog's neck, leaving enough length to comfortably tie the bandana.
If in doubt please do get in touch here and we'll be happy to advise on the correct size for your dog.
As well as being fun & stylish, our bow ties are very durable and washable. You can wash them on a gentle machine cycle at 30 degrees, but we prefer to wash bow ties by hand, reshape while damp, and dry them flat.
Our bow ties are perfect for any occasion, for formal or everyday wear. Most dogs love the attention they get when wearing a Dudiedog bow tie!
Fitting a bow tie onto your dog's collar is really simple. Here's how to do it:
Lay the bow tie flat, with the velcro straps facing upwards. Lie the collar across the bow tie, and close the velcro straps, trimming off any excess. (Hold it up to inspect before trimming, just to make sure the bow tie is straight). If you've provided a collar width the velcro strips will already be trimmed to fit.
If you order the matching neckband the bow tie will already be attached to it with velcro straps, but it can be removed and replaced. The neckband fastens with velcro, and is custom made to fit your dog perfectly. The neckband version is ideal if your dog doesn't wear a collar.
Always supervise your pet while wearing a bow tie.
Dudiedog accessories are handmade to order here in The Yorkshire Dales, so we need time to make your bow tie before it's carefully packed up and posted to you. As our bow ties are largely hand sewn their production time is generally within 7 working days of order. If you need your bow tie quicker it's always worth getting in touch. There are various options for shipping when you check out, but these don't alter production time.
