Easy to Make Dog Bows

Our easy to make Mini Bowdabra Dog Bows can be attached to either latex bands or small clips. We use the Mini Bowdabra ZPET001_131-300x225Hair Bow Tool & Ruler to measure our bow loops to make perfect exact bows every time. Dog Bows are perfect after your fur-baby has been groomed, or in a dog show, or just for fun!

When making dog bows for smaller dogs use the metric side of our Hair Bow Tool & Ruler for small even loops.
