Our Collars & Leads

When it came to selecting leather for our collar and lead range we wanted to make sure it was vegetable tanned. It is tactile, individual and strong and it contrasts well with our clean and simple brass hardware.

We love the idea that no two hides are ever the same resulting in each product being unique. The colour will start to darken and become richer, while the handle will begin to soften over time. 

Our leather products are made to last and will gradually evolve with the personality of your dog and tell the stories of the adventures you share together.

 

One Dog Policy - Maija Astikainen

Our current instagram obsession has to be Maija Astikainen's photo series One-Dog Policy.

The Finnish photographer’s ongoing photo series was shot in several homes from 2010 - 2014, exploring how people often humanise their pets. The title of her project refers to the fact that China has a one-dog policy.

We love the way she seems to have effortlessly captured the human qualities we portray onto our dogs. Each image seems to be full of different emotions that we the owner imagine our dogs have. We found ourselves spending hours pondering the stories behind each of the dogs featuring in this captivating series.

Doggy Speed Dating

On the 19th March we will be hosting a Doggy Speed Dating event at Ace Hotel in Shoreditch East London.
We wanted to create an educational event to help people who are looking to add a dog to their family but don't know where to start or you may already have a dog but would like more information on nutrition, healthcare, training or even grooming. However it was important to us that the event had a fun twist, so each person will have a 10 minute 'date' with an industry expert before moving onto the next expert in a speed dating format. Of course their will be dogs and the Ace will be providing some fun and delicious dog inspired food and drink and all the profits made from the event will be going to All Dogs Matter and The Blue Cross.
