The Happy Hoodie
COMFORTS, CALMS AND PROTECTS PETS
Made for Groomers by Groomers-
Happy Hoodie calms and protects pets during the force drying process.
Happy Hoodie is an expandable, soft, lightweight, safe, comfortable band that is placed over a pet's ears to provide relief and protection from loud noise and forceful air associated with force drying.
Happy Hoodie was created to calm dogs while force drying; however, it can also help pets relax under other circumstances that they may find stressful.
For a nervous or difficult dog, Happy Hoodie's calming effect can make a groomer's job so much easier and the pet's experience much more pleasant. Use it on dogs that are touchy on their feet (pads, nails, just touching their precious paws), clipper work, brushing/dematting, nervous just because they are there, you get the idea, right? Happy Hoodies many benefits include:
Noise reduction and swaddling effect CALMS upset, disagreeable pets
Saves valuable time in the grooming salon
Speeds up drying time by wicking water from the ears and face
Helps protect pets hearing
Requires minimal time, effort, and cost to use

HOW TO USE
Happy Hoodie is best received when a pet is in need of relief from a stressor.
If your pet is unsure about wearing Happy Hoodie, treats and/or praise can be used for positive reinforcement.
Never leave your pet unattended while wearing Happy Hoodie
Not recommended for Dogs who have a collapsed trachea.
TO REDUCE NOISE. It is important to place the ears DOWN over the ear canals so the ear canals are NOT exposed, then secure them in place with Happy Hoodie. Noise reduction is achieved by Happy Hoodie’s gentle compression closing off the ear canal. If you think it’s TOO TIGHT, please know snugness is necessary. If your 4 fingers fit under it, it’s not too tight (it’s so stretchy!).
FULLY stretch Happy Hoodie out so it more easily goes over the dog’s head, then place it onto the dog’s neck.
Place the ears against the pet's head so air cannot get in to them (ear canals should be unexposed) and slide the band back over the top of the head to secure the ears in place. Adjust the width of the band to best fit the pet by folding over excess material once the band is on.
Remove the Happy Hoodie to dry the head, ears, and face. We recommend removing the force dryer nozzle when
drying the head, ears, and face to keep the drying experience pleasant for the pet.
