Default Wrapping vs. Banding

Ok, I'm back again lol! I think I have managed to solve the "bands coming out" problem....I put in fewer bands and not as far back on Raven's head and he is much happier with that. Now it's just a matter of keeping the little hairs on the side of his head from sliding out and falling into his mouth. They are just long enough to get chewed on, but short enough to where they don't stay banded for more than a couple hours. I tried doing two rows Raven hates it. Curse the previous groomer for going up too high when shaving his face lol. Anyways...now I have someone telling me I should wrap. I'm afraid wraps will just fall out of his hair because of how active he is and the fact that his coat isn't super long yet. Plus I'm not sure he would appreciate the weight of a wrap on his head. Any thoughts?

Wraps would solve your fly away problem. Wraps are very light weight and do not add any added weight. You can still put elastics on the wraps to stop them from falling off.

I use wraps on Madonna's ears...it doesnt solve the flyways as any hairs that are shorter than the ear leather..banding can help with that. I like the wraps because they keep the hair clean and out of the water bowl :-) She doesnt mind them at all. Just be careful to check that you dont have any ear leather in them. Stick a comb thru the hair just above the wraps to ensure that you have no leather in there. Madonna's stay in for about 2 or 3 days. If you wrap the rubberband very tight ...one on top and one at the bottom of the little package..it will stay. :-)

Just realized I forgot about this thread!

See that's what I thought, wrapping isn't going to catch those shorter hairs he still has since he is a puppy and an active one at that. And I don't think his ears are even long enough to wrap safely...they only come past the leather a couple inches. But I could try it and see!

I'm also concerned the added weight of the little package will bother him. Toys are so picky about what is in their hair. :P

And don't worry, I'm a freak about checking ear leathers after any kind of banding!! I check, multiple times if needed. Like if I forget if I did it lol. I used to groom a standard that had had half of his ear leather removed because of improper banding. It was the mom's first poodle, she didn't even think about it. :-/

I made wraps out of cutting squares of doggy poop bags, they're super light, cheap, and easy to replace!

What did you do to get Cairo used to wrapping and banding? Like I've said before, Raven is fine with bands in the front and back to his ears, but from between his ears to right below his occiput they bother him. And that's where I'm struggling with breakage.

He never got used to it in his topknot, I clipped him into an HCC. He doesn't mind his ears wrapped.

Oh don't say that!! Lol....well, I'll just keep trying. Right now, I'm only banding from above Raven's eyes to just in between his ears, everything else is free. If I could find a way to protect more of his coat, that would be great but I may not be able to. We shall see. Thanks for the help!

Personally I would rather wrap. Sure the banding keeps more hair secured, but I find it breaks more hair. The wrapping doesnt hold it as securely but it doesn't break hair like banding unless it starts to mat up underneath of course

Makes sense....how long does the hair have to be in order to start wrapping? And what do you do about those pieces that fall out and into their mouth? Raven has a lot of those right now, he's in a really awkward hair stage ugh.
