Care Tips 1) Anything that touches your Yorkie's hair, from grooming
products like shampoo to leave-in spritzes and bows should all be high quality. It's better to have a few really good bows than a bunch of inexpensive ones.
It's best to stick with latex-free materials and to avoid wire framed ribbons.
The quality of what touches the hairs is important, but also cheap bows and ties will slip off or break apart. This can cause a choking hazard for dogs of all ages; though puppies especially will be prone to mouthing a tie if it falls off.
2) Even high quality products wear down over time. For this reason, regularly inspect the items that you use to make topknots for fraying or other elements that mean it is time to dispose of it and replace it with a newer one.
3) If you obtain bows that have decorations on them, test them to see if the rhinestones, gems or other shiny parts are secured in place and are not loose. If in doubt, choose another bow to make the topknot.
4) Take are in regard to bows that are connected to barrettes. While these are easy to use and can look very cute, if they fall out, this also can present a possible choking hazard.
