"WHAT'S THE SURPRISE MONTANA BANDANA-GRAM?" Well it's a custom-made-just-for-YOUR-Pet Bandana that fits over your pet's collar, made right here in Montana by young adults that are Special Olympians. And the amazing design they choose for you will be a complete surprise. We're not telling! But we can tell you it won't be any of the fabrics you've seen on our site...that's how we keep the surprise =) We guarantee that what you will receive will have had a lot of thought put into it by our athletes. They look up your breed of pet and take into account their personalities before they make their decision. We literally have hundreds of fabrics we haven't been able to sew & post here, and this gives us the chance to pick a specialty fabric just for You. They're great for gift giving because we seal and wrap with ribbon, perfect for presenting. Or we can ship directly to the Gift-ee's address for you!
"HOW EXACTLY IS IT FOR ME?" Because we take the hassle out of gift-shopping. Simply pick the size you want, tell us what your pet is, the gender, and include as much info about your pet as you want. Our Special Olympic Athletes will study your information and pick the very best one for your sweet Fido or Fifi. You don't have to do a thing, and what you'll receive will be a happy little mystery. It could be whimsical or beautiful, Studly, luxe, seasonal, or cartoonish. But it will Never be cheap. We use the softest cottons or flannels for the comfort of your sweet furbabies, just like we do our own. Your parcel will be secured with care, tied with a ribbon, and include a handwritten note by one of our athletes to the recipient. Then they hand-deliver
it straight to the Bigfork Montana postal shipping counter. No sitting around on shelves for us.
"DO I GET FREE SHIPPING?" Absolutely! And we'll include Tracking Service for FREE.

"ARE YOU GUYS FOR REAL?" You betcha! These proud MountainMen are twin Special Olympic Athletes. So that makes me their proud "MountainMomma." This venture was born out of the need for them to have jobs after Graduation, coupled with the fact that they lovingly care for their own Service Dog (a non-shedding breed = no fur on our fabrics). We started making our own bandanas to dote on them. Then the more we sewed, the more we sewed. Graduation came along and they needed to start their adult chapter. So here we are having fun in their own safe and easy-paced environment. They've learned to iron, sort inventory, choose and fold fabrics, match thread colors to fabric, sew on low-speed with assistance, complete the shipping process, help with photographing, hand-delivering, work thru a simple business conversation, and make simple change. Their math skills have sharpened, their organizational skills have improved, and their penmanship has never been more legible. They love looking up your towns they've never heard of, and animal breeds that are new to us. They have a large wall map that they put a pin into every town that orders. We only have 4 states left needing a pin...Hawaii, Mississippi, and North & South Dakota.
"WILL I LIKE WHAT I GET?" We have every confidence you will. Our consistent 5-Star review rating reflects the care we put into our work. These young adults truly love "all the animals of the world," and their positivity carries over to everything they do...from the stickers they choose to decorate your envelope, to the hilarious things they write on your notes. Some are real doosies! Not only are we a smoke-free home, but grouch-free too. It matters =)

I ordered bandanas for three dogs and a cat. They are all top notch and shipped super fast! The two bandanagrams ordered as gifts came packaged separately with lovely notes for their recipients. Holly was very fast to answer my question before purchase as well!

We gave a little bit of info about Foxy and received a reversible bandana made just for her. The experience was great from the time we placed the order. Miss Holly contacted us right away to confirm our order. We didn't have to wait long for it to arrive in the mail, but even the short wait was fun as we were wondering what kind of design would be selected for Foxy. We received a reversible bandana that was perfect for her. Both sides were adorable, we had a hard time which side we wanted her to wear first. We went with the diva side lol. A handwritten thoughtful and sincere note was included. We plan to order more to send to our friends' pets as well. I definitely recommend this shop. Thank you Mr. Curt, Mr. Colton and Miss Brianna. You 3 made our day and our pets look great. Please keep up the good work!
