Fine Featherheads is a feather hair accessory company based out of Niwot, Colorado. While they originally only produced products for humans, the company has created Pet Plumes so our stylish pooches can get in on the action.
Pet Plumes are made from genuine rooster feathers, which means they can stand up to water, wind, mud, snow and even the blow dryer. They come in a wide variety of colors, including natural, pink, red, blue, rainbow and much more. The feathers are dyed with non-toxic, organic, mineral-based dye. They range in price from $10 - $24 each. Also available are Purpose Plumes. When you purchase one of these, 10% of the proceeds are given to animal or cancer-related charities.
Pet Plumes are quick and easy to install (as long as your dog isn't too squirmy). Dogs don't seem to be bothered by or notice them, and with proper installation, feathers can remain in the dog's hair for weeks or even months. The feathers generally are the easiest to attach to long haired or non-shedding dogs. However, I was able to put one in my Great Dane's short coat, and it lasted for weeks, through swimming and days of daycare. If they do fall out, they are reusable and can be reinstalled.
The video accompanying this article demonstrates how to install a Pet Plume. Instead of the hair hook shown in the video, Pet Plumes may come with a loop of fishing line that serves the same purpose. See how to install the feathers using the monofilament loop.
This is a fun and easy way to accessorize your boy or girl dog, and you're sure to get lots of compliments!
