Dog bandanas, message vests, communicoats and leash bunting are not toys. Like ALL dog apparel please supervise your dog while wearing any of these items. Or, in the case of wholesale customers, please advise your own customers to supervise their dog while wearing. The Prancing Dog cannot be held liable for any injury sustained by an animal or human while wearing any of their products. For bandanas, as with dog collars, please ensure there is adequate room for movement round the dog’s neck. Do not tie too tightly – a reasonable judgement would be to use two finger width gap when tying. The Prancing Dog tie-around-the-neck bandanas are not recommended for use on cats. The Prancing Dog can supply bandanas specifically designed for cats which have an elastic fitting for around the neck. Please ensure there is no risk of strangulation for your pet at any time while wearing a dog bandana, and please ensure all products from The Prancing Dog are kept away from fire or ignition sources. If your dog chews and damages any part of any product from The Prancing Dog (for example – but not limited to – the fitting clip), please discard immediately to prevent choking or other risk to the dog. Always make sure your dog is comfortable and able to move freely when wearing dog apparel from The Prancing Dog.
