All of the leather used to produce Barker & Bone products is a high-quality Vegetable-Tan. Although we avoid any imperfections in the production of our products, leather is a natural material and can show subtle variations in texture and colour.
Due to the quality of our leather, the products should require little maintenance as the natural oils in your dog's coat should help keep them clean. In order to prolong the lifespan of our leather we suggest wiping with a damp cloth when dirty and allowing to dry naturally.
If your dog likes swimming, we recommend applying a high-quality leather cream/gel to your product before exposure to water. You should always allow our leather to dry naturally.
All of our fittings are made from chrome or silver plated alloys. The characteristics of these alloys make them perfect for use in dog accessories however due to the vigorous nature in which our products are used, the fittings can lose their silver colour over time. In order to prolong the lifespan of our fittings we suggest wiping with a damp cloth when dirty and allowing to dry naturally. For any stubborn stains or marks try lightly applying a metal polish.
All of our products are made using high quality materials however you should check your dog's accessories regularly for any signs of damage. Any products showing signs of damage should no longer be used as a precaution.
