K9Designs Review (+Giveaway!)

If you haven't realized by now, this little guy is my life.

Unfortunately, he's not a handbag dog and he's a dressing him up in cute little outfits might be a little socially unacceptable.

Since I'm a hardcore Virginia Tech Football fan, I wanted to get Riley a VT jersey to sport on game days.  I did a trial run of putting an old tshirt on Riley, and it ended poorly.  He tried to chew off the collar--so I decided I wasn't going to try and spend money on something he was just going to chew apart (money waster? no thanks).

One of Riley's dog trainers used to always put bandanas on her dogs.  She had them for EVERY season and event.  She mentioned that she bought them from K9designs.

k9designs has reasonably priced bandanas in various fun prints for all seasons and reasons, and even cancer awareness.  If you're like me (Plain Jane), then there are even solid bandanas available.

The bandanas comes in four different sizes to fit any dog and can be customized with whatever word you want (up to a specific character limit).  The solid bandanas have more flexibility in how many words/characters can be put on a bandana.

I bought Riley 4 VT bandanas, two maroon and two orange with the other color as the thread.
pardon the wrinklyness...

I was thrilled with how the bandanas turned out.  I was even more thrilled that she had both maroon fabric and thread (she must have known there are Hokie fans out there :)).  They are machine washable if they do get dirty and can easily be ironed out (something I forgot to do pre-photo op).

Riley was SO hoping the Hokies were going to demolish those Clemson tigers on Saturday...but we'll get those Wolverines in the Sugar Bowl!
k9design is offering 12% off all bandanas ordered before December 12th.  They will be mailed within one business day, so they will arrive in time for the holidays.  If you're looking for a gift for your pup (I hope you're not forgetting to get your furry family member a gift too!) or you know of a dog lover who is in need of a present--you can't go wrong with a customized bandana.

  2. If humans can dress up, why cant pets?

  3. We don't really dress up our dog, mainly because my husband is not a big fan. boo to him. But I've never tried a bandana! That'd be ok with me! So I guess, dressing pups up is ok, as long as you're not going full blown clown outfit every day of the week.
