Barrettes can be a choking hazard for your furbaby, so always supervise your dog when they are wearing a bow on a barrette.
This is especially important with puppies. Bands are much safer than barrettes and are the preferred method for attaching a bow.
If too much hair is put in a barrette, the release bar will bend and the barrette will break. Bows with barrettes should be attached like an accent with a small amount of hair.
A topknot cannot be made with a barrette. If the look of a topknot is preferred make the topknot with a band first, then attach the barretted bow just below the band.
Barrettes are tested several times prior to shipping to make sure they work properly. Bows on barrettes cannot be returned for refund or exchange if they break.
