It is washable, too. The Plus Size Pups' Christmas Over the Collar Dog Bandana – Merry Christmas Snowman comes in four size choices ranging from XS through large.

6Outward Hound Santa Dog Bandana

Outward Hound Santa Dog BandanaThis Santa’s Hat dog bandana from Outward Hound is unbelievably inexpensive and you can’t tell that from its material and solid stitching.

Well, the bell can be a bane or a boon, depending on your dog’s temperament. Some dogs walk proudly with the ting-a-ling sound, while others go nuts about it. For the photo ops the Outward Hound Santa Dog Bandana provides, it’s all paws up.

11ZippyPaws Holiday Paw Bandana

ZippyPaws Holiday Paw BandanaAt first glance, this looks like the Santa-inspired bandanas that we’ve already included in this list. This ZippyPaws holiday bandana, though, is different. First, it’s not fastened by Velcro, because it is worn over-the-collar. It is made of red velveteen material, with a white embroidered paw on the center of the triangle.

Next, it doesn’t have a bell that some dogs may not like. The ZippyPaws Holiday Paw Bandana has a white faux fur trimming along the topline which also adds to the comfort of the collar around the neck. These Christmas dog bandanas are made in small, medium and large, but do take note that they run small.
