My name is John Nolan. I make great gear for dogs. I work with leather from Germany, double braid polyester ropes made in Australia & milspec paracords from the USA, solid brass & stainless steel hardware from a number of first class European companies.
Big dogs & small dogs, show dogs & working dogs, service dogs & therapy dogs, gun dogs & retrievers of all breeds, competition dogs in all disciplines, IGP (IPO) & ring sport dogs, & of course, pet dogs.
In fact I make bespoke equipment for ALL dogs & my leads, tabs, collars & harnesses are bought by dog owners, dog trainers, professional dog handlers & pet dog owners, pretty well everywhere.
Nothing feels better than a well made quality lead if you are an enthusiast and everything I make is made to perform & new design prototypes are put to the test with my own dogs before they are put up for sale.
Unlike many other online sellersI actually make most of what is offered on this website & I regularly post jobs I do on the LeatherWorks ForDogs FaceBook page. I can supply you with gear in any configuration you want, & post to you anywhere in Australia, to New Zealand & any where else. During 2019, apart from every State in Australia, sales have gone to NZ, USA, Canada, Malta, Sweden, Singapore, Thailand, Japan, the UK, & the Russian Federation.
I test the dog gear I import, with my dogs & if I'm satisfied, then I will offer those products for sale, but I can take no responsibility for any defect that arises out of useage. We have owned, trained, worked, field trialed & enjoyed Working Dogs & Gun Dogs for many years so have a good idea of what works & more importantly, what equipment does not work. We are ANKC Registered Breeders, our prefix is Incavale, we are members of Dogs NSW & our dog breeds of choice are German Shepherds, Spanish Water Dogs & the Lagotto Romagnolo.
Our dogs are working dogs on our rural property as well as being dogs involved in various competitive pursuits.
Leather workers have been in the family for many years & they took time to give me a solid grounding in the craft & It's a hobby that I enjoy but take very seriously. The leathers I use are the best available, feel good in the hand, are exceptionally strong & when looked after, will last you for years.
My work looks good, it's strong, simple, neat & tidy. More importantly it's functional & will not let you down.
I also do leather repair work and I guarantee the quality of everything I make. I usually turn around orders within a working week but other jobs on the property can sometimes take precedence, so if you have a deadline, make sure I know about it preferably by phone or email and not on the PayPal order form.
I use Australia Post services with tracking to send orders, but can take no responsibility for delivery.
The materials I use are not cheap & my suppliers do regularly adjust their prices & the Euro/ $US/ $A exchange rates change continually as do international freight costs. The Covid situation has complicated delivery times. Notwithstanding the above I believe my products offer you very good value & I am able to do this as I have no employees, no retail premises, my workshop is on the farm & you deal directly with me. Payment is usually made via PayPal, on invoice or by contacting me to arrange a Bank Transfer transaction, your choice, & I look forward to doing business with you. Leather will be brown or black, unless another colour is specified and bear in mind that not every colour is always available.
I acknowledge that my business has sponsorship associations with a number of dog clubs around the country & I'm happy to support them, indeed I welcome enquiries regarding sponsorships.
