Cute! It does feel like a rite of passage, doesn't it?

Thanks, everyone. I'd been wanting to try one. When she woke up this morning I couldn't see her face so I thought "This is the day!" Going for a little neater look after her bath tomorrow.

Very cute! I've been doing topknots now too. I have a question though. When we had Willow in to the groomer and I told her I was doing topknots she put Willow's in one when I picked her up. The groomer has shih tzus, and she said that when they put the hair in topknots, they use a gluestick on the little hairs in front that are too short to get caught up in the band. She said that it's safe, non-toxic and washable. She didn't do that on Willow but just told me about it. Has anyone heard of doing this? I have to say I haven't tried it! I suppose though if a glue stick is safe for a child to use maybe it would be ok.

I wouldn't use glue stick. I'm not sure what it would do to the hair long term, even if it's non-toxic. Also, I'd be afraid of having it that near the eyes. This is the product that I use, as do a lot of the conformation Havanese people I know: Plush Puppy UK - Sit N Stay - Pre Chalker & Holding Coat Shaper - Styling & Finishing Grooming Products for Show Dogs

it works great, one jar last FOR EVER, and there's no nasty build-up.

Is this heavily fragrant?

Thanks Karen. I've never heard of such a product. Since this is on a UK site, I tried to find it on Amazon, or a similar product, but didn't see anything. I don't think I'd try a glue stick either!
