"But what is a Hoo-rag?", you ask.

A Hoo-rag is a seamless tubular piece of cloth - kind of like a bandana but you don't have to tie it.

They have Hoo-rag Dog Bandanas for doggies and also lots of Hoo-rag styles for humans. Hoo-rags can be worn in lots of different ways by both humans and doggies. You can scrunch it up and wear it like a bandana . . .
or to keep your ears warm . . .

Mom got a matching Hoo-rag, and she likes to use it as a headband to contain her unruly mass of hair and keep it out of her face and as a way to snaz up a ponytail.

The Hoo-rags we received are traditional red bandana print, but there are lots of different colors and prints available. Mom likes the Fishing Bandanas because they have one with a tarpon on it, one that is colored like a mahi mahi, and another printed like a dive flag.

This is definitely a cool product. I give the Hoo-rag two paws up for effortless fashion. No knots to tie or fumble with - all mom has to do is slip it over my head for a little instant flare. Plus it's super comfy!
Mom and I think our matching red Hoo-rags will look great at our next tricks demonstration, and the red even goes with my skateboard. Plus I simply look fabulous in red. I think I also need a purple or green one to go with my therapy dog cape. And maybe a blue one. I wonder if Hoo-rags needs a doggie model?
Hoo-rag was very nice to send us a couple free Hoo-rags. They also sent me a Hoo-rag sticker which I plan to proudly display on my skateboard!
The Human Perspective (from Garth's mom):
Like Garth said, we really like our Hoo-rags. I find mine extremely handy to keep my hair out of my face. I also think it will be great to use when I'm out on the water all day, so my neck doesn't get sunburned. Hoo-rags are made of polyester microfiber, so they're lightweight and dry quickly. They have some very cool designs and I'm already planning to put a Hoo-rag or two on my birthday list.
For Garth, I love the Hoo-rag design. It's so much easier to just slip something over his head than to tie a knot in something attached to a wiggly lab. And untying a knot in a bandana after the knot has tightened is difficult for me. Garth has a pile of bandanas he doesn't wear for that reason. Plus the Hoo-rag doesn't seem to bother him like a bandana does. It fits loosely and I think he simply forgot he was wearing it. He often fusses with bandanas and gives me the "pleeeeese take this thing offa' me" look.
Hoo-rags are similar to Survivor buffs but WAY less expensive. The Hoo-rags for dogs are $9.99 and $14.95, with shipping to the continental U.S. included. I really appreciate that they don't charge for shipping. So many companies use inflated shipping charges as another way to make money, and Hoo-rag doesn't do that.
I don't know if Hoo-rags makes smaller sizes for smaller dogs. The size we received was perfect for Garth, but might be large for many of our smaller friends. For a really small dog (doxie or chi-sized), you could twist it in half & double it up like you would to wear it as a wristband, but for a medium-sized dog, he/she may have to wear it loose.
