All our leather products are 100% handmade in England with care and thought, from cutting the leather to preparing and finishing the product, and are available in a range of widths and sizes to ensure a perfect fit.
All the fittings sucha as buckles and D rings are welded brass for extra security and ensure that it doesn’t ‘buckle’ at an inappropriate time.
About Bridle leather
Bridle Leather refers to the way that a piece of leather (cow hide) is finished at the tannery. Bridle leather means that both the Flesh and Grain side of the leather has been stuffed with greases and finished with wax. This is a labour intensive process and justifies the high price we pay for this type of leather. Few tanneries produce exceptional bridle leather and at Dogsnug we take this very seriously, buying only from tanneries we believe produce the best bridle leather in the world.
There are three purposes to bridle leather:
1. Appearance – it must look good. It must have a good depth of colour and age well without natural imperfections that weaken the leather
2. Tactility – it must be smooth, comfortable and flexible to handle. Designed to be used for bridles, it must be comfortable for a horse to wear next to their skin, so treatment of the flesh side is just as important as the grain side.
3. Durability – A piece of saddlery is typically expected to last for 10 or more years so must be exceptionally strong and withstand the elements.
Bridle leather is a reassuring nod to how things used to be: a time of doing things slowly, carefully and with pride. A natural material that demands considered care and attention so that it can produce beautiful objects that can be treasured for many years. In today’s world, there aren’t many things that get better with age – good bridle leather is one of them.

I’m not very good with measurements
If you click on the size chart you can find the standard measurement charts and an easy to follow diagram showing how to measure your dog for a coat. However, if you still a little unsure, you are most welcome to contact us and we will be happy to arrange a Skype meeting to help you measure your VIP (very important pup).
How do i know that the colour I see on the screen is the same colour of the product?
That’s a tricky one, as it depends on your screen calibration. This said, we try to make a vivid description of the colours when we talk about our products. If this still keeps you guessing, we are happy to send you a set of fabric samples so you can make a much more informed choice.
Will it fit right?
Our designer and pattern cutter has years of experience in the fashion industry, and is obsessive with getting the fit right. Each size has been tried and tested on lots of dogs of different breeds to make sure that the shape responds to their body peculiarities. This is specially important if you have a sighthound or a dachshund as their body is seriously different to that of other dogs.
How do I know if the quality is really good?
Your trust in our products is very important to us, and we think quality is at the core of trust. To guarantee a high level of quality, we test every product in a variety of materials in order to chose the best performing ones. Although this is a costly process, it gives us the piece of mind that you will be receiving a product that will not let you down.
It’s a bit expensive
We want you to enjoy a high quality product which is unique and will last, and unfortunately this does not come cheap. All our products are hand-made in England and we pride ourselves of paying a fair retribution to the talented craftsmen we collaborate with. We only work with high quality materials, picked for their high performance and durability. We also make sure that we prototype and test our products until we are satisfied that the quality of material and of finishes is excellent.
My dog likes to play rough, will the coats be strong enough to last?
The Dogsnug coats protects the skin of your dog from sharp branches and even teeth marks. We know because we put these to test with our Kai who is quite a rough player. Being a whippet, his favourite game with his other whippet friends is to chew each others bodies whilst running at lightning speed. The outer layer of our coats are made of ripstop, a material designed not to rip if caught on a branch or any other sharp object. To top this up the ripstop is bonded to a 3D spacer mesh which structure is designed to bounce and move when stressed, giving the extra protection you need for your very special pooch.The strap is elastic so it keeps the coat in place whilst allowing mobility and stretch.
