6 Alternatives to a Bandana 🐕

6 Alternatives to a Bandana 🐕

The thing we love most about patches is the endless possibilities for where they can end up. Seeing our customers come up with clever and creative ways to display their dogs merit badges is an endless joy. 

While we offer a range of cotton bandanas that do make a perfect base, that's not the only way you can incorporate them into your dogs wardrobe and life. 

We've listed our 6 favourite ideas below.

1. Harness

This is perfect for dogs who don't wear bandanas, but want to show off their patches every day. You may need to stitch down your patch when working with coarse materials commonly used for harnesses.

2. Dog Jacket or Sweater

One of our favourite spots for a patch (or three). Keep your pooch warm in the cooler months while also showing off their personality.

3. Blanket

This is very on brand for a scout. Plus if your dog is anything like Scout, the patches will come in handy to repair small holes made from excessive pawing and playing.

4. Dog rucksack

Nothing screams adventure like a dog in their very own rucksack. Add our nature themed patches to finish off the look.

5. Dog bed

Another great option if your dog isn't into wearing bandanas. Personalise their bed instantly with a few patches. 

6. The Chuck-Everything-In dog bag

You know the bag. Usually a tote, and almost always full of bits and pieces you need for your dog - be it a pub session, an overnight stay or a trip to the park.
