This is designed and make exclusively by PET Expressions. These bows are wonderful collection for Shih Tzu, Maltese, Poodle, Yorkie, etc. All the bows are made with double looped rubber band. The one loop is for securing the ribbon and the other loop is for securing the bow to the doggie hair. Many times, we have been asked how to make dog bows stay on the doggie hair. Our advise is that you should tie the loop around the doggie hair at least 3 or more times. The specialty rubber band we use is highly elastic which makes it possible for you to tie as many times as you can so that it can stay on the doggie hair. For example, I have a 8 LB Shih Tzu with very fine hair, so I actually tie around the Shih Tzu hair for at least 6 times to allow the bows to stay on.
