This leather dog was originally introduced to the range in the early 70’s. It is suitable for use as a low footrest as it sits flat to the ground. The collar used today is a tan colour but with NO studs.

Main product features are:

  • Top grain “unfinished” cowhide leather
  • leather collar
  • 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:

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 small wooden frame which enables the product to be used as a footstool.  Please be aware it 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 process is time consuming and physical! As no two pieces of leather behave in the same way 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.
