Now, these are just too cute.
What in the world is a snood anyway? Snoods are usually worn by long-earned dogs such as Cavaliers, Basset Hounds, Cocker Spaniels, and many other breeds, too. With the assistance of a Cavalier owner, my snoods were designed specifically to fit Cavaliers. Spaniel owners tell me that my size X-Large snood fits the springer spaniel, as well as the Irish water spaniel, very well. Snoods are worn by many dogs with long ears during meals. The snood is a gentle way to hold back the ears to prevent accidental chewing. It also helps keep the ears from dipping into food and water. I sew these snoods with flat fell seams for extra strength and durability. The elastic is enclosed in a casing so that the fabric is what touches your family pet's fur, and not the elastic, which tends to pull. I also stitch the elastic in place to prevent rolling. Made from 100% cotton or cotton blends. Snoods are available in six sizes.
A lot of my customers place orders for snoods to help aid in the healing process for a variety of ear problems. Their main concern is to protect the affected area so that this area doesn't reopen so quickly after the initial healing. A snood is exclusively made from fabric and can be used to hold the ears back from shaking. The snood will not protect from vigorous scratching.

From Andrea and Tucker of Seattle, WA
This is Tucker of Seattle, WA wearing a snood for healing purposes. He had bloody ear tips due to vasculitis and needed a snood quickly to help with the healing. When his owner notified me of this situation, I immediately made this snood and shipped it ASAP. So, if you have a dog with vasculitis or need a dog snood for healing purposes like Sydney of Brighton, MI, I would be more than happy to help with these concerns.
I would like to share with everyone the feedback I received on Tucker's snood:
"You are amazing! We received Tucker's snood today (boy you are fast!) and what a life saver. It is working perfectly to keep him from shaking those ears and of course he is quite handsome in it too. It's a beautifully made snood and it seems to be a perfect fit. Hopefully it will keep his ears put so they can heal up soon. Thank you so much for all of your help and speedy delivery. We really appreciate it!"
From George and Jack of Arroyo Grande, CA
"We received Jack's Snood last week. I found it to be a very well made product that more importantly fit perfectly. It is obvious he is now much more comfortable and happier with the Snood than he was with the homemade nylon hood we had been using to keep his ear 'less mobile' while it healed.
A little background - Jack is a young, active dog and everything he does is with great energy. He has long ears and has had a sore near the tip of one of this ears off and on since August. It has been really slow healing and a head shake (which causes his ears to almost pop like a whip) would set back many hours, if not days of healing. Jack's veterinarian suggested a cone or tape, but I really couldn't see him with a cone and I knew he would work on the tape. I made a bonnet with nylons that worked, but you could see he really didn't like it, and then I found the snood.
Thank you again for expediting the handling and shipping of Jack's snood."
From Kay, Bob, and Nicky of Northport, AL
"We received the snood you made for our poodle Nicky. We all love it. We were using the alligator style hair clips and Nicky would back away and cringe when he saw the clip. When we went to take the clip off he would duck his head and try to get out of reach. They worked fairly well as long as he did not shake his head, which would cause the clip to fly away.
Now, all we have to say is "let's put your snood on" and he stands and eats his meal like nothing is on him. After he finishes his meal, we tell him "snood" and have him sit and then we catch the snood on both sides in front and he backs out of it.
All three of us love it and will never be without one or more.
Thank you again for your help in picking the right size."
From Jake and his family of Colorado Springs, CO
"The Snoods fit perfectly. We have a Boxer that has very dry skin (especially on his ears); his ears frequently dry and crack and eventually bleed from the cracks. So, we have to keep ointment on his ears to keep them lubricated and we cover them to keep them warm (which increases blood circulation) and keeps him from shaking his head vigorously. We typically covered his head with cut up girls tights (the upper leg portion); however, the tights slide down and we were constantly adjusting them."
"The snood works perfectly. It is comfortable for him and it keeps his ears warm and protected. Thanks again!"
