Zoo Snoods Review – Crocheted Hats for Dogs

Zoo Snoods ReviewHere's something a little different, but very cute for your dogs. It's “Zoo Snoods” – which are crocheted hats for dogs in various animal forms.

As they tell us, a “snood” is a wide ring of knitted material worn as an ornamental hood or a scarf for women. And so “Zoo Snoods” are snoods for dogs. They've been in business since autumn 2016 and the company was founded by the creator of the “Beard Head” and his furry sidekick, Lucky.

According to their website…

We here at Zoo Snoods are passionate about animals, and animal well-being. That is why a portion of every Zoo Snood sale is donated to animal welfare organizations that are committed to helping pets in need.


Here are some of the currently available designs…

We absolutely adore these…and loved hearing that Zoo Snoods donates $1 from each Snood sale to various dog organizations.

Zoo Snoods Sizing

If you're wondering what size to order, here is their recommended sizing after measuring the widest point of the head in front of the ears.

    • Small – 8 to 13 inches / 20 to 33 cm – suggested for Chihuahua, Yorkie, Maltese, Pomeranian, Shih Tzu, Mini Dachshund and other mini breeds.
    • Medium  – 12 to 18 inches / 30 to 46 cm – suggested for Beagle, Corgi, Cocker Spaniel, French Bulldog, Poodle, Shiba Inu, Dachshund, Pug

Wash and Wear

It is recommended that you wash your Zoo Snood in cold wear and lay flat to dry. You can machine wash in cold, but you run a risk of damaging, so hand wash is the best. Avoid warm or hut water as your snood might shrink.

Our Thoughts on Zoo Snoods

As you can see, these hats are super cute and well-designed, offering a very good fit for most dogs. Now do dogs NEED hats to keep their heads and ears warm? Probably not. But if your dog find the hat comfortable (not all dogs will), why not?

Outside of that, we appreciate the community aspect of Zoo Snoods. From supporting to various dog organizations to featuring their adorable customers, they'll all about loving dogs. If you purchase one, be sure to send them a photo of your dog wearing his snood. You never know…your dog may end up internet-famous.
