Initially I began processing cow hide for my own dogs to use in their fitness and play routines. I soon discovered there was a demand for it in the wider canine fitness community. My husband helps me with processing the hides which are sourced locally from a small scale butcher. They are hung and stretched in the sun, cleaned of excess fat, rinsed in lots of fresh water. I am lucky to live in an area where the conditions for drying hides in the warm sun and air are perfect! After a couple of weeks, the hides are dried and ready to be cut into pieces to be used for spring pole, flirt pole, treadmill lures, teeth cleaners and more!
