Leather Dachshund

Our animals are generally MADE TO ORDER. We hold limited stock. Please allow 5-6 weeks for manufacture to avoid disappointment.

Standard

Dachshund

  • Code: CAN/3304
  • Dimentions (mm): 620(L) x 200(W) x 480(H)
  • Weight: Approx 4.5KG

Our pretty leather dachshund was added to the range in 2000 and has proved very popular. This dog can be used as a footstool. Please note the collar supplied today does not have any studs on it and is a brown colour.

Main product features are:

  • Top grain “unfinished” cowhide leather
  • Internal metal and wooden frame
  • Filled with woodwool (shredded pine wood)
  • Hand filled to create shape and features
  • Hand stained mahogany brown
  • Suitable for use as a footstool
  • Height to top of back for foot rest

Additional product features are:

The leather is top grain British sourced cowhide leather tanned specifically for our purposes. The leather is “unfinished” ie it has not been coated, filled or embossed in any way. It is left to develop natural scuff marks reflecting the wear and tear of life.

Inside there is a sturdy metal and wooden frame which enables the product to be used as a footstool. We consider this size to be too low and narrow for use as an occasional seat. Please be aware the product is not built to furniture standards and is primarily a decorative piece for the home.

Woodwool (shredded pine wood) is hand worked around the frame to give the shape of the animal. This is a physical process and time consuming. As no two pieces of leather behave in the same manner and each piece is hand made, no two animals are the same and sizings given are approximate.

Once assembled, the leather is stained to give an “antique” effect in mahogany brown, then waxed and polished to give a luxurious finish. The stain used is water based and can be susceptible to water damage as the leather takes time to absorb the stain. Please apply coats of clear wax polish in its early life to help seal in the stain and keep the leather in good condition. Nikwax Waterproofing wax is an excellent product and can be bought on our site under CARE PRODUCTS.
