Bone Broth and its many benefits

Posted on July 01, 2019 by Anita Fuhrer | 0 Comments

Bone broth has recently gained its popularity not only for humans to consume but also for dogs and cats. Bone broth is however not a new "fab" or a new "super food" In fact, bone broth has been used in cultures around the globe for centuries due to its amazing immune boosting qualities.

What is Bone Broth?
Bone broth for dogs combines chicken, fish or beef bones in a slow cooker with water and apple cider vinegar and cooks between 24 and 48 hours. This broth is rich in gelatin, potassium and calcium and aids in your dog's gut health, joints, bones and the immune system. It is now known that between 70-80% of our immune system is in the gut so it is especially important to focus on your pet's diet to obtain optimal health.

Store bought bone broth can contain dangerous and unnecessary ingredients for your dog so we recommend making your own bone broth that requires minimal cooking skills. In fact, you can reuse otherwise discarded beef or chicken bones after a big family meal.

Benefits of Bone Broth

Whether your pup is young or old or has a difficult stomach, general bone and joint complications or a sluggish immune system, your dog can benefit from bone broth.

We recommend one cup of bone broth for dogs a day, supplemented with their usual favorite food will contain enough fiber and gelatin to aid in digestive issues. Be aware, your dog will LOVE this so much it will become their favorite treat.

We believe there in nothing better for your loved one than a delicious meal that is healthy and full of amazing nutrients.
Enjoy this wonderful broth and watch your dog develop beautiful skin and a shiny coat.

How to Find the Most Comfortable, Soft & Anti Itch Dog Collar?

Posted on May 01, 2019 by Anita Fuhrer | 2 Comments

There is an overwhelming amount of dog collars on the market today but which collars are best suited for dogs that suffer from allergies, matting, irritation or sensitive skin?
We are examining the differences between round and flat collars vs the most popular nylon and leather dog collars.

Today more and more dogs suffer from allergies and various skin disorders so wearing a collar that is comfortable and "clean" becomes a priority.
For safety reasons, dogs should be wearing collars 24/7. This is another reason why collar comfort should be first priority for a dog owner. 



 

ROUND DOG COLLARS are typically known for being best suited for dogs with longer fur/hair with a tendency to matting. These collars don't have an edge that can irritate the skin or rub on the hair and eventually result in matting issues. Round collars are available in various materials and even if your dog doesn't have long fur but suffers from sensitive skin it is recommended to use a round collar. We recommend leather that is natural and closest to a dog's own skin chemistry. Note, when looking for a leather dog collar you want to ensure the leather is soft and not Latigo leather that is rougher and harder on dog's skin.  About 95% of leather today is  made in China or India using toxins so look for round collars made of soft Italian Leather that is vegetable tanned without the use of toxins.  We recommend looking for brands that are made in USA or Europe to ensure that high quality leather has been used.

 

 

FLAT COLLARS are very popular and come in various types of material. These collars are generally more suitable for dogs with short fur in that the flat edging can cause some rubbing and friction on longer hair. When choosing a flat collar it is important to chose the right material. Nylon collars are very popular, affordable and pretty durable -although they don't seem to last that long. Leather collars typically last longer but are more costly, especially if you are getting high quality leather.  Again, it is important to be picky about the quality of the leather. You want the collar to be sturdy but not too stiff so it will chafe your dog's neck. Soft and padded leather collars are a good option to keep your dog comfortable and safe.

Finally, don't let the price tag on a fancy design collar fool you to believe it is comfortable. Many of the collar makers prioritize the look over the comfort which unfortunately can result in some serious damage to your pup's skin. Just google "Skin rub due to dog collar" and you will see thousands of disturbing pictures of dogs suffering from bad burns from non- functional dog collars.

 

 

We noticed that there was a need for dog collars that were 100% natural, comfortable, durable and trendy which is why we created the  BALDY  and FRISKY Collection. These  Comfort Round and Flat Leather Dog Collars are made of Sustainable Leather from Century Old Tanneries in Italy. The colors are derived from plants and not chemicals. It takes HUND about 40 days to transform raw hides into unique, durable and versatile vegetable tanned leather while 90% of leather today is typically made in a couple of days using harsh chemicals. HUND's leather is velvety soft so the dog will actually enjoy wearing his collar 24/7 as well as being the most natural material for the dog to wear. Due to its purity the leather is most similar to the dog's own natural skin chemistry, thus the leather will not irritate the skin but will instead prevent scratching and itching in the neck area and allow the dog to feel free and comfy. 

 

 

HUND Denmark marries nature and Functional Danish Design with the latest Technology to protect our environment, companions and employees. The BALDY Collars have been chosen as a favorite product by the Modern Dog Magazine and are the only round collars on the market without an outside seam to prevent irritation suitable for short and long haired dog breeds. 

So in the end, it may cost us a few more pennies per square foot of leather, but we feel that it is a small price to pay for leather that will last longer, is kinder to our companions as well as the earth.

How to Choose the Best Leather Martingale Collar

Posted on April 24, 2019 by Anita Fuhrer | 0 Comments

If you are shopping for a Leather Martingale collar it can be overwhelming to sift through all the different types of collars to figure out what type is best for your pup. This article will help you to quickly identify the differences between the different leather collars so you can make the best-educated decision for your pup’s needs.

If you are looking for a Martingale collar, chances are your dog is a leash puller or even worse, an escape artist. Dogs are very intelligent and once they figure out to slip out of a standard collar once, they will begin doing it all the time which becomes a safety concern. Don’t make the mistake of trying to pull the dog harder, because you risk choking your dog and straining their neck.

 

 

 

A better solution is to use a Martingale collar that is designed with two loops that tighten to give greater control and reduce the risk of a dog slipping out of their collar. Martingale collars are not choke collars so they will not hurt your pup if you have the correct size.

There are hundreds and hundreds of different designs available on the market today. There are Martingale collars made from: Fabric, Nylon, Hemp, Leather etc. If you are reading this article you have probably already done your research and realized that leather is the best material to choose for a dog. Leather is extremely durable as well as the most natural material for a dog to wear. With that said, there is an overwhelming variety of leather collars available on the market and it is imperative that we as dog owners learn to sift through the bad ones.

 

Most Leather Martingale collars have a flat design and are made of Latigo leather that is tough and durable but can be a bit rough on a dog’s skin due to the rough and stiff nature of the leather. Furthermore, the leather used for those types of collars is typically made in China or India and is loaded with chemicals that can directly irritate the neck area from chemicals rubbing off into the pet's skin. There goes the benefit of leather being the most natural and closest to a pet’s own skin chemistry. The flat design of the collar can also cause friction on the dog’s neck and cause rubbing on their neck, this is especially true for dogs that pull.

 

 

Round Leather Martingale collars are great for dogs that pull and dogs with longer hair prone to matting. When shopping for a round collar make sure it isn’t a “Rolled Leather Dog Collar” since it is not suitable for dogs that pull. Although, it is pretty durable, the constant pulling will expand the leather until it eventually breaks. A round leather collar has a Nylon Rope on the inside to ensure that the collar is extra durable yet soft. When purchasing a round martingale leather collar, I recommend looking for a “Made in USA” or “Made in Europe” label to ensure you are getting the highest quality product without the unnecessary toxins. Note, most companies that go the extra mile to provide clean materials to their customers will typically rave about it on their website. So if you don' t see it mentioned in their product description, it is a good indicator that the product is not clean and most likely from China.

 

We noticed that there was a need for a Round Martingale dog collar that is 100% natural, comfortable, durable and trendy which is why we created the Munchkin Collection. These Round Leather Martingale Dog Collars are made of Sustainable Leather from Century Old Tanneries in Italy. The colors are derived from plants and not chemicals. It takes about 40 days to transform raw hides into unique, durable and versatile vegetable tanned leather. The hardware on the collar is made of a durable chain from Solid Brass and Solid Chrome to make the collar extra strong and create the classic 'chain sound' which is considered by many dogs as an audible signal to stop pulling.

 

HUND Denmark combines Functional Danish Design with the latest Technology to protect our environment, companions and employees. The Munchkin Collars are the only round collars on the market without an outside seam to bother the dog. 

So in the end, it may cost us a few more pennies per square foot of leather, but we feel that it is a small price to pay for leather that will last longer, is kinder to our companions as well as the earth.

 

 Leather Martingale Dog collars are overall a great option for dogs that pull or escape from their regular collars. We do however recommend only to wear Martingale collars when walking your dog. While the dog is relaxing at home, we recommend keeping them in a comfortable and safe dog collar.

 

Like with any product you purchase today, educate yourself about the pros and cons of the different types of collars and how they are made to ensure your are making the best choice for your companion.

What is the Difference Between "Round Leather Dog Collars" and "Rolled Leather Dog Collars"?

Posted on November 09, 2018 by Anita Fuhrer | 4 Comments

What is the difference between “Round Leather Dog Collars” and “Rolled Leather Dog Collars?”

We are often asked if rolled leather dog collars are the same as round leather dog collars? and the short answer is NO.
There are many companies who list their dog collars as rolled leather while their products are made of round leather and vice versa. Obviously, this can be a marketing strategy but as a business owner I believe honesty and transparency with customers is a must for long term success.


  Rolled leather dog collars are simply that, a piece of leather rolled and stitched together by a machine. These collars are typically made of Latigo leather that is tough and durable but can be a bit rough on a dog’s skin due to the rough nature of the leather. Furthermore, the leather used for those type of collars is typically made in China or India and is loaded with chemicals. Since the pet has to wear their collar pretty much around the clock and their skin is the largest organ, all the nasty toxins get absorbed through their skin and enter their bodies as well as directly irritating the neck area from chemicals rubbing off onto the pet's skin. There goes the benefit of leather being the most natural and closest to a pet’s own skin chemistry.

 So in short, rolled leather dog collars do their job of preventing hair matting but they can be a bit rough on the skin leading to irritation. Another downside to rolled leather is that it is not suitable for dogs that pull. Although, it is pretty durable, the constant pulling will expand the leather until it eventually breaks. When purchasing a rolled leather collar, I recommend looking for a “Made in USA” or “Made in Europe” label to ensure you are getting the highest quality product without the unnecessary toxins.


 

 

 Round leather dog collars are typically made of softer leather on the outside and a rope on the inside. These collars are typically even nicer to prevent hair matting and more comfortable. Most of the round collars on the market are made from medium to soft leather on the outside and a tough rope on the inside.  Although these collars are more comfortable than Rolled Leather Collars, they can still be quite stiff and not 100% comfortable for a pet.

Most makers also have an outside seam on their round collars that can rub against the dog’s hair/fur contributing to some degree of matting and irritation as well as making the design less appealing. It is difficult to tell from a picture how soft a dog collar is and whether it has an outside edge/seam,  (The makers typically don't show this part on their pictures) so make sure you read the product description well or ask the manufacturer about the edging/seam and what type of material has been used -as well as what country the leather is from. Over 90% of leather is made in China or India so be ware of that.

Note, most companies that go the extra mile to provide clean materials to their customers will typically rave about it on their website. So if you don' t see it mentioned in their product description, it is a good indicator that the product is not clean and most likely from China.

Dangers of Retractable Leashes

Posted on October 25, 2018 by Anita Fuhrer | 1 Comment

The popular retractable leash has been used by many dog owners for walking their pets and provide them more freedom. Most of us don’t think twice about its safety but doctors today don’t recommend retractable leashes in fact they are now recommending to avoid them.

Dr. Bescker is just one of the many Doctors who does not approve of the retractbale leash which she refers to as “a thin cord wound around a spring loaded device” She gives us 10 Reasons why we should NOT use a rectrable leash.

  1. The length of retractable leashes, some of which can extend up to 26 feet, allows dogs to get far enough away from their humans that a situation can quickly turn dangerous. A dog on a retractable leash is often able to run into the middle of the street, for example, or make uninvited contact with other dogs or people.
  2. In the above scenario, or one in which your pet is being approached by an aggressive dog, it is nearly impossible to get control of the situation if the need arises. It's much easier to regain control of – or protect -- a dog at the end of a six-foot standard flat leash than it is if he's 20 or so feet away at the end of what amounts to a thin string.
  3. The thin cord of a retractable leash can break – especially when a powerful dog is on the other end of it. If a strong, good-sized dog takes off at full speed, the cord can snap. Not only can that put the dog and whatever he may be chasing in danger, but also the cord can snap back and injure the human at the other end.
  4. If a dog walker gets tangled up in the cord of a retractable leash, or grabs it in an attempt to reel in their dog, it can result in burns, cuts, and even amputation. In addition, many people have been pulled right off their feet by a dog that reaches the end of the leash and keeps going. This can result in bruises, "road rash," broken bones, and worse.
  5. Dogs have also received terrible injuries as a result of the sudden jerk on their neck that occurs when they run out the leash, including neck wounds, lacerated tracheas, and injuries to the spine.
  6. Retractable leashes allow dogs more freedom to pull at the end of them, which can look like aggression to another dog who may decide to "fight back."
  7. The handles of retractable leashes are bulky and can be easily pulled out of human hands, resulting in a runaway dog. 
  8. Along those same lines, many dogs – especially fearful ones – are terrorized by the sound of a dropped retractable leash handle and may take off running, which is dangerous enough. To make matters worse, the object of the poor dog's fear is then "chasing" her, and if the leash is retracting as she runs, the handle is gaining ground on her – she can't escape it. Even if this scenario ultimately ends without physical harm to the dog (or anyone else), it can create lingering fear in the dog not only of leashes, but also of being walked.
  9. Retractable leashes, like most retractable devices, have a tendency to malfunction over time, either refusing to extend, refusing to retract, or unspooling at will. 
  10. Retractable leashes are an especially bad idea for dogs that haven't been trained to walk politely on a regular leash. By their very nature, retractable train dogs to pull while on leash, because they learn that pulling extends the lead.

HUND Denmark offers the best of both worlds for dog walkers. With the 5 in one adjustable leash you are able to keep your dog safe as well as giving him freedom by expanding the leash to 4’ 5’ and 6 feet. 6 Feet is the max that we feel a dog should be given in order to still remain in full control and stay safe. The Hands free option makes it convenient for jogging or whenever you need your hands to be free. This Designer Leash is made of Eco friendly and Hypoallergenic finest leather from century old tanneries in Italy. It is hand crafted and has a functional Scandinavian design with solid and sturdy hardware.
