How To Create The Perfect Rope Lead For You And Your Dog

  At The Dog Edit, we make all leads to order because we believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ dog lead. Dogs come in a range of shapes and sizes, and behave differently on the lead so we give you a choice of rope diameter, length and whipping colour to help you create your perfect lead. That’s over 100 possible combinations! I’m frequently asked for advice on choosing the right length or diameter of lead so I thought I would create this blog post to help you make the right choice. All our leads are available to...

My dog was wearing a widely available seatbelt harness which I had bought from a pet store and was sitting in the front seat beside me. Even with the low speed impact, the dog fell forward into the footwell which I found very surprising but I assumed that was normal. Little did...

Making The Dog Edit More Sustainable

Sustainability and reducing the impact I have on the environment is something that is incredibly important to me on a personal level so it is naturally at the forefront of my mind when it comes to The Dog Edit. When I started the business last year, one of my first decisions was to use boxes and tissue paper made from recycled (and recyclable) materials. Since then I've been incrementally trying to improve our sustainability and I thought I would share my progress with you.  Packaging Packaging is not only important as it protects items during transit but also because I...
