Since September 2018, we have been creating a product with two aims in mind; durability and sustainability. Through our creation of one of the first organic dog leads, we match both of our criteria. Firstly, through the use of our marine grade Hemp rope, our dog leads are extremely durable. They are capable of holding a small car, giving plenty of strength to keep even the strongest of dogs by your side. Secondly, Hemp rope is a plant-based rope, made from the fibres of Hemp rope. The Hemp we use is grown organically in a controlled and sustainable environment.
Our environmental aim continues through the use of an upcycled leather handle. We use all real leather from off-cuts of upholstery leather – the finest leather on the market. This ensures the handle is durable and will last far beyond the life of a typical dog lead. The offcuts we use are too small to be used for anything else and therefore, would go to landfill. We upcycle the offcuts and hand-stitch the handles to create our dog lead handles .
Even our packaging is made from old recycled medical records!
So far, we have a range of organic, natural dog leads on offer. We have created 1.2 and 1.5 metre dog leads, both available with a leather handle or a soft-woven Hemp handle. We also have a range of slip leads available, saving the need for a collar.
All of our dog leads are made from marine-grade, organic Hemp rope – ensuring your lead is both sustainable, environmentally friendly and durable. Our handles are made from the finest leather offcuts, giving a premium and luxurious feel to your lead. All our handles are hand-stitched by us!
One feature of our lead which we proud ourselves in is that every lead features two hand-stitched handles, made here in Britain. This is a feature you are guaranteed not to find on another dog lead within this price range.
Once we enter the new year, we will be expanding the D.O.G brand further. Initially, we will be making dog collars but later into a huge range of other dog products, all following our environmentally friendly, sustainable and natural model.
We are D.O.G, a young enterprise company hailing from Woodbridge Suffolk, specialising in organic dog and other pet products. D.O.G stands for: durable, organic, green. In this title we hope to show our aims upfront which are: 1. To provide long lasting and durable products 2. To source as many of our materials from organic sources 3. To use environmentally friendly methods and resources wherever possible.
The Young Enterprise Scheme was set-up in 1962 with the aim to motivate young people to enter the professional business world. The scheme teaches thousands of students each year how to set-up a business, come up with a product and sell the item they have produced.
