Q. I am a dog groomer and want to make bows for dogs I groom. Any suggestions?

A. The hair bow tool and ruler along with the Mini Bowdabra make pet bow making and measuring easy. The reference guide I use when making dog bows is as follows:

3/8 Wide Bows
0-5 Pounds
Tea Cup Puppies, Yorkies, Maltese
5/8 Wide Bows
5-10 Pounds
Small – Medium Yorkie, Maltese, Poodle, Shih Tzu
7/8 Wide Bows
Over 10 Pounds
Adults Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso,Bichon

I would recommend using bow the 3/8 wide grosgrain and satin ribbon for the very small bows and the 5/8 to 7/8 wide grosgrain and satin ribbon for larger bows.
