Free Printable Red White & Blue Dog Treat Tags and Labels

Red white and blue dog treat tags and labels with stars and paw prints

As promised, here's a little celebratory red, white, and blue treat from us to you! These were create with the Fourth of July in mind, but there are plenty of pawesome countries/celebrations that share this colour scheme so we've kept things multi-purpose with these tags and text.

DIY Reversible Dog Bandana with Accent Trim Neck Ties

Smiling Dalmatian dog wear a red DIY dog bandana with star print pattern

This pawesome dog bandana DIY is fully reversible and deceptively easy to sew. It is a simplified version of our fully bound bandana that skips the side trim on the triangle, eliminating corner turns which makes this a fancy looking bandana which requires only basic machine sewing skills. In all honesty, it's almost as easy as a basic reversible bandana, but that's a matter of personal preference and doggone great style. Choices, choices... On the subject of which, this bandana is a starry combo of red, whites, and blues in honour of our fab furfriends celebrating the Fourth of July next week but not so over-the-top that it wouldn't work for many other fancy dress occasions or just general wear, like our Canada Day dog (and cat!) bandanas. Woofs and meow!

DIY Fancy Dress Dog (and Cat!) Bandanas with Trim + Ties

DIY white dog bandanas with red trim, with a big varsity letter iron-on initials

These pretty red and white bandanas were created for our boys for Canada Day, but they can do double duty for general wear as well special red and white events like Valentine's Day or Christmas holidays. I even made a mini-bandana for Tiger, although his doesn't have a monogram iron-on as it's much smaller.  Fun fact: Tiger was born in Canada, and has had a rather well-travelled life for a rescue cat!

This DIY is easily adapted to other colour schemes, or for our Canadian readers, you can go full maple for an extra special Canadian version by using pattern fabrics, a maple leaf iron-on (not readily available down here!), or stamp your own design. If you have a computer controlled cutter, like our Cricut, you can create a custom iron-on, but you can also hand cut heat transfer materials.

Red White and Blue Marbled Star Treats for Patriotic Pups

These red white and blue treats for patriotic pups show how simple it is to adapt the same marbling technique as our Unicorn Bones to other fun treats. We're really feeling rather jealous of our American furfriends who will be having a long weekend for Memorial Day, but we're very good and giving dogs so we're going to share a special post for them all the same. :)  Don't forget to take some time in tribute to the reason for the holiday - see our Remembrance Day Dog post for some inspiring history.   Have a wonderful weekend, and stay safe furfriends!

DIY No-Sew Australia + New Zealand Flag Bow Ties

Dalmatian dog with DIY New Zealand flag bow tie

With Australia Day celebrations fast approaching, we had planned to share a special pre-Australia Day DIY dog round-up with you as we have on other national holidays; however, there weren't a lot of Aussie flag inspired doggy DIYs readily available to share so we created one ourselves!  Since the observation of Waitangi Day is just around the corner in New Zealand and ANZAC Day will be here before we know it, we DIYed no-sew dog bow ties for both flags so you can pick and choose for your patriotic pups.
