Keep Your Dog's Ears Clean with Dog Snoods

If you have a best furiend or dog with long ears, chances are that you’ve struggled with what to do with those beautiful long ears – whether during meal times, or for outdoor time.

You’ve probably tried to tie your dog’s hair up with a loose scrunchie, or tried to make some sort of creative bow contraption, or just tried to lovingly hold their ears back while they eat. If so, you've probably also been on the receiving end of puppy resistance & big puppy attitude. 

Trust us - We've been there. And we're here to tell you about the simple & magical solution to this: Dog Snoods


What is a Dog Snood & how does it work? 

A Dog Snood is a comfortable & cute solution for dirty ears and dirty ear floof.  Worn like a headband on your dog's head, it holds in all of the hair & ear floof so that your dogs can eat their foods, both wet & dry, freely, without you worrying about them getting their hair dirty.

Snoods are most commonly known among certain communities, particularly those dogs with long-ears such as Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, Cocker Spaniels, English Springer Spaniels, English Setters, Shih-Tzus, Poodles & Doodle Mixes, Basset Hounds, but they can be used for any dogs & even cats! 

In addition to being useful for meal time, snoods are also used: 

  • As ear mittens, guarding from cold weather, or 
  • As coverings, guarding from burrs & foxtails on walks

Our Story started with Maple & Snoods 

Our story at Maple & Paws started with when we designed & handmade this product at home for our own sweet senior Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Maple, because her food would always get stuck in her long ears.

Most of the options we found online were made of wool or polyester, which we found were too hot for her, or more ornamental than functional, a common theme we discovered with a lot of dog accessories. 

We always wanted to do better for her, to create something for her that would fit "just right" for our Queen. 

What makes our Dog Snoods special? 

Our signature Dog Snood has gone through many evolutions of design, to ensure maximum comfort, functionality, & fun for your Queens & Kings at home. They are: 

  • Comfortable
  • Well-designed, as the middle-band helps withstand some inevitable head shakes 
  • 100% cotton & pre-washed
  • Breathable & airy
  • Easy to clean & wash

"Maple and Paws snoods are simply the best! They fit perfectly, are easy to put on and take off, wash like a charm, and [my girls] look adorable in them :) It was a real pleasure working with the company! It is clear they are made with LOVE."

"I was on the hunt for a snood for our pup as meal time was often messy and my pup had a tendency to try and bite his ears if there was any food residue. This has been perfect! This is our cavs first snood and he took to it immediately… it’s held up and looks like the day we got it."
