Are snoods good for dogs? Neck and ear warmers, pet scarves, as well as snoods, are must-haves during wintertime in order to avoid hypothermia and frostbites. Indeed, freezing cold temperatures target extremities the most starting with a dog’s ears. Using a pet snood will warm up your dog so the harshest winter days can feel healthily warm.
What is a dog snood for? A “snood” is a clever piece of knit headgear for your dog that can keep your dog clean while he eats dinner. Until a few years ago, “snoods” weren’t even known as a dog accessory, and were only worn by women using them to hold their hair back (like a bandana).
Why do poodles wear snoods? The Dog Snood keeps the dog’s ears from falling into the water bowl, or from getting matted when the dog eats. As dogs tend to get close and curl up when they are eating, and certainly don’t conform to our own table manners, they tend to get their hair mixed with their food, which is where our Dog Snood comes in.
How do you measure a dog’s snood? Measure the circumference of your dog’s head at it’s widest point, just in front of the ears. Select a snood size that is larger than this measurement.
