Bandana Bonanza!

The Dog House is currently offering a special promotion: Customers can now purchase their choice of any two of my hand printed doggy bandanas for just $23 USD (that’s less than £14 for us Brits)! If, like me, you are lucky enough to have two dogs, this offer is  perfect, & if not then why not treat your hound to two bandanas so you can mix & match depending on the occasion!


The bandanas are triangular & measure approximately 50 x 50 x 75 cm, making them suitable for any medium or large sized dog. They are made of 100% cotton & have been hand screen printed using non-toxic fabric ink. The ink has been fixed using heat, making it resistant to machine washing at 40°C, dry cleaning & ironing on a cotton setting.

With 15 fun & colourful designs to choose from, which two will you choose? Below are some pics of the dogs modelling  a few of my personal favourites, but the full selection can be viewed in my shop.


As with all items in my shop, 5% of the profits from the sale of these bandanas will be donated to Gracehounds (Scottish Registered Charity No. SC038872), a small local charity dedicated to finding permanent homes & a better life for sighthounds, who would otherwise be abandoned or destroyed after their short racing careers.
