SociaBulls: How SociaBulls is like the Mickey Mouse Club

While I always think pups always look cuter with a bit of 'flair', our group has been incorporating bandanas for another reason: to help us communicate.
1) The bandanas let us know who is part of the group and who might be just a curious on-looker looking to jump in (it's happened a few times!)
2) The colored bandanas remind us which dogs need even more extra space and shouldn't be passed
3) We use the colors to help a dog-needing space to find a laid-back buddy if they fall out of the pack order. We wrote about it in more detail here.
Then...we decided to take it up a notch:
 Since we are such a large group, and many members are still learning names, we thought it would be fun to have personalized SociaBulls bandanas. Along with the name of our group, each pup will have their name embroidered on their bandana.
Our version of the Mickey Mouse Club letter jackets.
There are always complications with money-handling, distribution, and ordering of group gear,  so to make things even easier, Sirius Republic generously offered to make our bandanas so members can order independently. The bandanas are heavy-weight and embroidered with our group name and the name of the pup. We even have our own group listing on the site here.
Members still have the option of purchasing their own colored bandana, but it has been extra fun seeing our pups coming with their personalized bandanas.

The bandanas are a good idea to verify all the members. We thought every buddy was going to have Mickey Mouse ears on, BOL
