What better way to top off a fashionable ensemble than with the perfect hair accessory? Bows, barrettes, and hats are very popular items with dog owners and you can find them anyplace you buy dog clothing. If you use a groomer for your dog you can probably ask your groomer about bows and barrettes, too. He or she may be able to tell you good places to purchase them or they may have some for sale in their shop.

Bows

Bows for dogs are usually rather small so we don’t usually use the same bows that are made for people – they’re too large and heavy. Bows can range from simple little grosgrain bows to very elaborate pieces with multiple layers or even with rhinestones or other things to make them stand out. And, of course, they can come in any color or kind of ribbon or fabric. If you can’t find what you want in a store or online, you can certainly make your own bows. Bows come in different sizes but most of them are about 3/8 or 5/8 inch wide. Some people like to put a bow in the center of their dog’s head to hold the topknot of hair; and other people like to put a bow on each ear. It’s up to you and your dog, and the outfit your dog is wearing.  Both male and female dogs wear bows.

 

Generally speaking, you can’t really tie a bow into your dog’s hair. It will slide out. You need a small rubber band to hold the hair and then you can tie the bow around it.

 

Barrettes

Barrettes are very similar to dog bows. In some cases you can use a barrette to secure a bow in your dog’s hair. Barrettes often allow you to use other things besides ribbon when you want to put something in your dog’s hair, such as little artificial flowers or pieces of rhinestone jewelry or other items. They lie flatter than bows.

 

Hats

Hats for dogs are usually chosen with a particular outfit or occasion in mind. Many dog owners like for their dogs to wear baseball caps or other team hats, too. If you have rain gear for your dog, some owners like to add a rain hat to keep their dog’s head from getting wet. If your dog has a beautiful party dress, some owners will add a matching hat. Party hats are also very popular – let your dog celebrate New Year’s Eve with a sparkly chapeau! And don’t forget birthday hats. And how could we forget St. Patrick’s Day?

There are really hats for all occasions and dogs look adorable when they wear hats so get creative and have fun with your dog’s head gear.

If you want to take things a step further, some owners even enjoy adding a wig to their dog’s look. It’s just for fun and wigs go great with hats. Wigs for dogs are lots of fun when your dog is dressed up for special occasions like Halloween
