Doggie Bow Ties creates show
dog bows for showing in conformation specifically
for three toy dog breeds: Shih Tzu, Yorkie, and
Maltese. Because the requirements are so specific to
each breed, I would like to briefly describe the dog
bows that I create for each breed.
Shih Tzu: For the full
size Shih Tzu I offer a variety of dog bows in
several sizes to accommodate head size and
preference in presentation. I also offer a huge
variety of styles and colors for the full range
of personal taste. I recommend the
show bows for the Shih Tzu over 9 lbs with a
large head. If your Shih Tzu is at the lower end
of the breed standard and is petite, then a bow
Inbetween size page will probably work
better for your Shih Tzu. I also offer an
Inbetween Petite size dog bow on this same page
that works well with the smaller adult Shih Tzu.
If you need a bow for your Shih Tzu puppy’s
first show at 6 months, you could probably use a
double loop puppy dog bow or an Inbetween size
dog bow depending on your preference.
Yorkie: I offer a full
red show dog bows for the Yorkie. On
this page you may choose to have your bow with
or without a flag backing, and many of the bows
offered have a choice of centers for the bow. If
a full size dog bow is too big for your Yorkie,
you can also try the
double loop puppy bows or
you can use a single loop full size bow that is
offered at the bottom of this page. By special
request, I will “Petite” downsize any of the
bows on the full size red dog bows page for your Yorkie in show.
The Maltese is shown in a
single top knot usually with a single loop puppy
size bow until they mature at about 12-18 months
old. After that, they are usually shown with the
double topknots in the traditional Maltese pairs
in either a classic black velvet or a pretty
black satin. Maltese pairs
have specific sizing depending on the style of
the bow. My
Maltese velvet pairs
uniform in size and cut and are available in
three styles. I also offer
Micro Tiny Ties™
which is a tiny double loop bow suitable for
double topknots. My "Bow Ties"™ are single loop
pairs for Maltese and are available in: solid
satin, metallic edge satin, and
offered embellished with Swarovski Crystal.
