Default Dog bows

For those of you ladies that make dog bows with the groomer bands...what size band do you use? I found a store on ebay that offers different size bands 1/4", 3/8" and 5/16"...I have NO idea which size to order..I am making them for my new baby she'll be shih tzu size full grown

OMG she is so cute. Look at all that hair screaming for a bow. I would love to make her a custom collar for when she is older.

I think I can answer your question since I make show bows for my yorkie. I use 5/16 size on my bows but it all depends on the thickness of the dogs hair. Most of the bands on ebay are dental elastic and it breaks the hair and don't recommend those. Not sure I can post a link that would show you a better band ( I don't sell them). As far as what size you would need, I'm sure 5/16 would work but the 3/8 would be better if her hair is thicker.

Chrissie, the more I look at her pic you may need a smaller band since she doesn't have much hair. If you email me at [email protected], I would be happy to send you a few different sizes you can try on her before you buy them.

Thank you yorkiemom...I ordered the 3/8"...I'm hoping that they are the right bands they came from a "dog" store on ebay and stated that they were grooming bands. I so can't wait to make bows for her!

Chrissie, if they are too big for her I'm sure as her hair grows if you are going to let it grow that is, she will get into them, if they are too big now, go down a size to 5/16, my offer still stands if you are interested. Take a look here and see all the colors, this is where I get mine, big difference than those on ebay. http://showoffproducts.com/cart/inde...roducts_id=727

Yorkiemom--do you attach the bow to the elastic or do you put the elastic in and then add the bow on a clip? (a snap clip or alligator cliP?)
My girlfriend just got a shih tsu and I'd love to make her a few.
My dog used to just wear my plastic barrettes when I was young ; )
(nothing fancy...lol)
