Evaluate the needs of your pet. Pugs, bulldogs and other Shorthair dogs may need a sun cap. Spaniels and Basset-hounds with long, hanging ears just need headgear that protects the ears from dirt and litter. And always saboxin toy-Terriers and Chihuahuas will be useful and warm hat for the winter.

Remove the merc with a dog. You will need your neck circumference in the widest part (width of the future cap) and the distance from the bottom of the neck to the forehead (respectively, its length). Making allowance of 3 inches in width and 6 inches in length, will have plenty of fabric a rectangle. Fold it twice and sew. The resulting tube should be freely worn on the head of a dog. On both sides make the bending and hem. In every ACC pass band, adjusting it to the width of the neck. Remove the product.
Dogs with erect ears is another version of the hat. It can be done warm, but you can summer, protected from the sun. Take a break from the fabric a rectangle whose length is the circumference of your head (plus allowance for seams), and the width and height of the ears (also taking into account the seam allowance.) The bottom cap is a circle, the diameter of which is equal to the circumference of your head. If you plan to make the hat with lining, increase the allowance. Baste the details of the cap, connecting the rectangle width, then sew the bottom to its long side. For better fixation on the head of a dog sew on both sides of the cap ribbon.
