We were so excited about ordering the Dogsy Dog Bandana, there was so much choice in the styles that were on offer. Our dog is quite old and we hoped it would bring her some of the love and attention she deserves and help her feel a bit special. We were not disappointed.
There are five designs on offer which give a great choice and a great chance to get that really personalised feeling. The Dogsy bandana is a print with a mixture of dogs and bones and your dog’s face printed multiple times across the fabric. The Dogsy Mash up Bandana is your dog’s face repeated over and over and the three final designs are your dog’s face printed once quite large with a choice of spots, stripes and zig zags behind your dog’s face. We decided that the Dogsy bandana was the best one for Moppit, our Black Labrador, as it had the personalised flavour but was still quite subtle.
There are twenty choices of colour from the classic reds, blues and greens, vibrant pinks and turquoises if you want a more modern punchy look and the more subtle greys and creams for more classic looks. It was really hard to choose. In the end we went for a classic red to match Moppit’s collar and lead.
When choosing the size of bandana you want, there are three sizes; small medium and large. The size guide was really handy with not only measurement guide but by breed type. I was a little worried as our old lady is quite an old and chunky lady and I thought that the large might be a bit small, but I really needn’t have worried as it was a perfect size when it came. It even had a little room to spare.
We had so much fun trying to get a photo, every time we thought we had got her, she would lay down or come over for a cuddle. In the end there were three of us laughing so much we couldn’t take the photo. We have lots of photos of Moppit but most of them were when she was younger or not positioned in the right place. In the end many attempts later we got there. The guide on the website was very helpful although achieving it took some doing.
The website was quick and surprisingly easy to use, pick a size, pick a colour and then just upload your picture. You can upload two pictures to make sure you can one that works for the design.
We were really over the moon when our package arrived and it came surprisingly quickly for a personalised design. The packaging was covered in a fun dog cartoon design which was a lovely touch and definitely added to the excitement. We were really please with the print quality and the overall effect. The colour was a vibrant red and our dogs face came out really clearly. The design makes us smile every time we see it. The bandana is made from two layers of fabric with an overlocked edge. It’s made from breathable soft poly-cotton which looks hardwearing and it is machine washable.
The fabric has a little slippery feeling so we have made sure we tied two strong knots to hold it securely, but it’s still nice and loose around her neck and comfortable enough for her to have a nap in. It’s is also breathable which will means it can be worn all year around without worrying about her getting too hot.
Moppit our dog is getting so much more attention now. She is being stopped and petted in the street and even at home it has brought her lots more cuddles and loving. It seems to have given her a new lease of life. She is also much easier to spot when she is out and about off lead on the beach. As a family we are really over the moon with our Dogsy Dog Bandana not only is it a great well-made product but it has brought a new least of life to our dog.
