The Salty Dog Products are individually dyed and, as such, dye transfer onto the coat of your animal is possible, especially if the product becomes wet and left on the animal for a period of time.
This potential transfer may affect the leather and must be treated after being naturally dried. Never leave a leather collar, lead or harness on a radiator or heat source as it will dry out the leather and potentially cause dry rot and/or cracking. Allow the product to dry naturally then treat the leather afterwards. Salt water may also tarnish the 18k gold plating. If it gets wet, all leather and suede products must be treated with a good quality leather balm to maintain the leather and protect it.
Our products are premium (for best) dog couture items, and are not designed for more demanding pet activities such as swimming and muddy, muckier adventures.
