How big is that dog bow?

This is a reference to help you know the actual size of our bows at Doggy Bow for your pet or show dog.

  • First, the size of ribbon I have used to create the bow.
  • Second, the width of the bow based on the style of bow,
    a single loop bow is smaller in width than a double loop bow.
    Keep in mind the flag back is not included in the width.
  • Third, the width of the bow loop to loop or side to side.

What is a flag back or flat back?

A flag back is a bow that is created either with a single loop or double loop then it has an additional piece of ribbon as the back drop to
the bow to add a fancier look to the bow. The flag back is also treated to prevent fraying and stiffened with the whole bow. 
A flat back is a bow with a
single loop and then a loop that is flatted to give a solid flat backing to the bow; it also keeps the depth of the bow stack to a much smaller width.dl20flag20sl20flat20back
The single loop or double loop with no flag back refers to a style of bow. The is used in the measurement of the bow.
