Perhaps you have been approached by a stranger and told that your dog would look cute with a bandana, or you have seen pictures online of dogs wearing bandanas and wondered if there was any value to getting one or more for your dog.
Well, there are several reasons why you should consider getting your dog a bandana the next time you go shopping online, pass by a pet store, or feel the need to get creative with a piece of fabric. Apart from how fashionable a dog looks when wearing a bandana, you will be surprised that you haven’t considered so many other reasons.
A few of them include:
If you have a dog with special needs, you might find yourself having to pay very close attention to the environment when you go out to the park or on walks, to make sure that the dog does not get hurt. Even with a collar, there is still so much information that can yet be relayed to the public.
With a bandana, you can have clear text written on a plain colored fabric to enlighten the public. Asides from that, the color of the bandana can serve as a warning. A yellow-colored bandana tells the people that your dog is recovering from surgery; white says that your dog has problems seeing, or hearing, or both. Orange-colored bandanas mean that your dog cannot easily relate with other dogs; green tells the public that the dog is amiable, and blue indicates a working dog.
Bold colors are easier to read from afar than writings on collars or signs hung from your dog’s neck, which can cause discomfort.
Dogs cannot regulate their body temperature like we humans. Even with the fur, they get cold sometimes, especially dogs with little or no fur or hair. Wearing a bandana for your dog can help to keep it warm when the weather gets cold.
Have you ever taken your dog out to the park, and suddenly the weather gets too hot that you begin to sweat? There is the option of finding shade for yourself, but what about your dog that wants to play more?
Some bandanas can absorb water, keeping your dog cool and fresh. The polymer beads in these bandanas, when dipped in water, are liquid-absorbing and do not dry out quickly.
Some dogs naturally appear scary and mean but are sweet and welcoming. If you have that sort of dog, you know that people tend to steer clear and maintain a distance when walking your dog on the street.
You would be surprised how wearing a bandana for your dog can change that. A dog that looks scary will look less fierce with a pretty colored bandana that says “I love pats” around its neck.
One of the best perks of a bandana? You get to design what you want. You can make your dog look as fashionable as possible. You can draw different shapes, attach cutout patterns and emerge with that unique look that suits your aesthetic preferences.
To conclude, bandanas are accessories that can be used for one or many purposes, depending on what you want them to be. Investing in getting your dog a bandana is a choice that you will not regret.
