This pawesome reversible dog/cat bandana is about tolerance really. Named after the Nirvana song “Come as you are”, this piece is full of diversity and color. One side shows a crowd of dogs of all shapes, color and sizes (and yes, personalities too!) and the other side is just playful, featuring a bunch of colorful Converse sneakers all coexisting in one space. We can't deny there is a "philantropic" intention behind our brand AVANTBark. We feel a need for opening up our many times stand-alone perspective of the world, embracing diversity and "that" that we find "different" from us. From our point of view, empathy and non-judgement are keys to live in a more tolerant, ethical and unprejudiced environment. All our bandanas carry that intention. Woof!

PS: Your reversible bandana will measure at least 4” (for smaller breeds) to 6” (for larger breeds) more than your dog’s real neck size for a comfortable fitting. If the bandana is a little long towards the floor, you can always roll the bandana a few times to adjust the length properly (and for a funkier look too since our bandanas are reversible!) Also remember, dogs come in infinite shapes and sizes! :) If you have doubts, is always better to size up than down.
