The Bandana

The DoggiePatch comes in 4 series, each representing a character, favorite food, activity or toy. So you can personalize your DoggieBandana to show off the unique personality of your best buddy! (I wanna get one now!)

The DoggiePatches are iron-ons so it’s super easy to start wearing the DoggieBandana. There’s gotta be a patch that fits your buddy, if not, suggest a patch!

We’ve even created special DoggiePatches for adopted and rescued dogs so they can wear these like badges of honor. They come FREE with every DoggieBandana.

Find the perfect Patch for your pup!

The EAT series has all the yummy things in the world... and some not so yummy. You'll find different types of food and other ``edible objects``. Like anything from Steak and Bone, to even Medicine for those poor puppies who are always ``pharmaceutically dependent``.

In the PLAY series, you'll find different types of toys or ``play things``, from the common ones like Tree Branch and Tennis Ball to the not so common like a Ladybug!

The ENJOY series is where you'll find all the good stuff in life. You'll find different types of favorite activities like Swimming (or should we say ``don't ever wanna get out of the water``?), Car Ride, Napping During the Day, Howling to the moon and more!

In the BE series, you'll find different glimpses of personality. Is your dog full of curiosity (Magnifying Glass)? Full of smart ideas (Light Bulb)? Or is he a silly clown (Clown)? A big furry lover (Heart)? You'll find it all here.

How To Apply

DoggiePatches are iron-on patches so applying them is QUICK and EASY!

You can iron them on just like you would with other iron-on appliques and patches.

Here’s the detailed instructions:

  • • PRE-HEAT iron to “cotton” setting.
  • • REMOVE the stickers “My favorite activity”, “My favorite food”
  • • PLACE the patch onto the desired location on the bandana.
  • • PUT a cotton pillowcase (dark color would be better because the patches are so colorful) over the patch and the bandana.
  • • IRON in a circular motion for 20-25 seconds.
  • • LET everything cool off.
  • • … and it’s READY TO WEAR!

How To Care

You can just toss it in the washer machine.

Put the DoggieBandana into a mesh laundry bag and toss it in the washing machine with other dark color clothing. The bag will prevent DoggiePatches from being rubbed off by other clothes. Use warm water. Chlorine bleach is not a good idea.

To dry, toss it into the dryer and let it tumble dry under low temperature.

You can also hand wash it.

Just wash with soapy water or laundry detergent under warm water, then line dry.

Our Carefree line of DoggieBandanas are made of 35% Cotton and 65% Polyester, bringing you a softer and lighter wear. Once washed, the fabric feels silky smooth. It is also wrinkle resistant.

Our Rugged line of DoggieBandanas are made of 80% Cotton and 20% Polyester, bringing you a heavier and more durable wear.

All of our DoggiePatches are made of 100% Polyester.

They are designed in California. Assembly is done by a wonderful group of developmentally disabled folks from Partnership with Industry (PWI) in San Diego.

Tips tips tips

How to position… Here are some suggestions on how to best position your DoggiePatches.

Towards the tip of the DoggieBandana triangle (near the Woof’s Life label) is the area that is usually most visible when the bandana is worn. Placing most of your patches there will make it look the best!

How to wear… Dogs come in all shapes and sizes,by adjusting the DoggieBandana a bit, you’ll get a perfect fit!

If the bandana is a little too big, you can first ROLL UP the long side of the bandana triangle so the remaining triangle becomes smaller. Tie the knot and wear as usual. The reduced visible area of the bandana will give your dog a much better fit while still wrapping around his neck nicely!
