This is a brand new item offered by Okanagan Whips. Dog Quirts were originally developed for field trial training of dogs. In my version of this historic quirt the thong is a full shot loaded 30 inches. It is built the same way my high quality whips are: the shot bag is bolstered with kangaroo hide and then further bolstered with a 12 plait kangaroo belly. The overlay is a 16 plait kangaroo. The entire whip is made of hand cut, beveled and split to conformity leather. These quirts will weigh in at about 13 to 14 ounces or 400 grams. The falls are made of thick heavy duty latigo cow hide that is about 7.5mm wide and 16 inches long.
This dog quirt is currently only available in this Viper Pattern which is a combination of Black and the color of your choice. You also have the choice of wrist strap style as well as a thicker options of Latigo.
Secondary Color Option:
Introducing a second color into a single tail whip is fairly easy. I have several unusual factory dyed hide colors available. I also have a fair stock of natural hides which are perfect for dyeing. You do not have to choose a second color - you can select "No Color" for the second choice to leave your whip a solid color.
I will upload more photos of the color options when I have photographed them. Typically the second color will cost you $15.00 for standard colors, $25.00 for special order colors like roan, white, oxblood, purple, dark red, timber brown etc.
Here we have pictures of the Full 5 strand Wrist Strap, and the Utility Strap. A photograph of the heel knot without a strap will be posted when I have one. There is no extra cost for the Utility Strap or no strap option. It is an extra $10.00 for the full five strand wrist strap.
