Q – How long will cowhide last?
A – Cow skin is durable and will last many years depending on how and where you use it. Cowhides do not like to be damp or wet for long periods, so please avoid this treatment. On a sunny day you can put your cowhide outside to air out with the underside facing the sun. Store them in a dry, well ventilated place, preferably rolled around a tube core with a clean cotton sheet to protect from dust and dirt while in storage.
Q - How do cats or dogs react to cowhide? Do they try to eat it?
A - This is a tough one to answer because every pet is different. In general, dogs love cowhides and will start sleeping in the middle straight away. I have not heard of any trouble with dogs eating cowhide, it is tanned so has no flavor or appeal. However puppies do tend to chew on things including leather shoes so I can't make any promises. Most cats start off very wary of cowhide, the smell and texture is foreign to them. They walk around the edges. After they realize that a cowhide is no threat they either ignore it or start sleeping on it as well.
Q - How are the hides tanned?
A - They are tanned using the chrome technique so the back of the leather is a blue grey color. This is the best technique for a soft and floppy leather result. They have not been treated with, and contain no residues of PCP, AZO-colouring agents, Chrome VI, formaldehyde and nickel. The tanneries use an environmentally responsible method of waste treatment that exceeds industry standard requirements.
