Bandana Size Guide

All dogs are unique. This guide provides an estimate for you to select the best size for your Uptown Pup. The bandana “neck length” refers to the measurements for the long edge of the bandana, not the dog’s actual neck measurements. Keep in mind, tying the bandana will require a few inches. Feel free to reach out if you are still not sure which size to select, and I am happy to assist.


EXTRA-EXTRA-SMALL (XXS) – 15-inch bandana neck length
Smallest puppies, tiny “teacup” terriers, smallest Chihuahuas, and the tiniest Yorkies. This size will come with velcro on the ends of the bandana, as it will be too small to tie. If in doubt, I suggest getting the XS.

EXTRA-SMALL (XS) – 18-inch bandana neck length
Puppies, miniature terriers, small Chihuahuas, and tiny Yorkies. (For most toy breeds, size X-SMALL is likely the correct fit.)

SMALL (S) – 21-inch bandana neck length
Larger puppies, Yorkies/Yorkshire Terriers, Yorkie-poos, Malteses, Chihuahuas, Papillon, small/mini Poodles, Dachshunds, small Jack Russel Terriers, Border Terriers, Pugs, Shih-Tzus, small Dachshunds

SMALL-MEDIUM (S/M) – 25-inch bandana neck length

Bandana measurements are approximate, as all bandanas are individually handmade in the United States. If you see a bandana you would like to purchase, but it is not in stock, request a re-stock or message me, and I will see if I can find the fabric for you.
