Repairs: Pets and Whips Don’t Mix

Damage: A customer's puppy found and chewed on this custom 32 plait signal whip made by MidWestWhips.

We’ve heard dozens of stories and answered dozens of questions concerning the problems that arise when pet owners don’t keep their whips up and away from their pets.  Dogs seem to be the main offender in whip PuppyShoeChewdamage because they tend to smell the leather of a whip and immediately think “chew toy!” but cats can be problems too.  Believe it or not, we’ve actually even been asked what is the best way to get the stench of cat urine out of a whip.

I don’t mean to single out this particular whip or its owner, because in reality accidents do happen (especially when you’ve got a new puppy in the house – believe me, I know.  We’ve been there too).  But a fine whip is a sizable investment to most of us, and this post is simply meant as a warning and reminder to all pet owners: be sure your pets don’t have access to your whips!

Fortunately this whip was repairable, and now looks good as new again.
