How much weight can a Doggy Anchor hold?
Our Doggy Anchor has been put through a manufacturer testing lab, where over 30kgs of weight is placed inside the bag, then held up by our “anchor point”. The bag is then shaken over 400 times to test the durability and strength of the reinforced stitching and structure of the bag. Large dogs up to 30kgs can be comfortably held secure by the Doggy Anchor.
However, this is not to say that even larger dogs cannot get the same security from the bag. The Doggy Anchor is designed to act also as a deterrent for your dog. If your dog is lead trained, the resistance felt when pulling from the anchor point, should be enough to convince your furry friend that they are to stay put, just like being held by their leash on walkies.
How do I clean and care for my Doggy Anchor?
Your Doggy Anchor is 100% waterproof and designed to not hold sand within the weave of the fabric. When emptying your bag once you are ready to pack up and head home, simply shake all excess sand out.
If your bag has become dirty, a cold hand wash, then laid out to dry inside is the best way to keep your Doggy Anchor looking its best. You may also want to rinse any sand out of your Doggy Anchor leash clips to prevent sand build up. Always store your bag and leash dry.
Is the Doggy Anchor completely waterproof?
Yes! Your Doggy Anchor bag is the perfect dual use bag. Once you have finished using your bag to keep your pooch secure, you can then fill it with all your wet towels, swimsuits, wetsuits etc and they will not leak into the back of your car for the ride home!
