Our very talented stick maker (Peter) is now taking commissions for his hand carved sticks in time for Christmas. You can choose from the selection on the website or you can send in some photos of your pet for him to copy.

Work typically takes 4 to 6 weeks during the year, but as the orders multiply for Christmas, it’s best to get your order in early. Each stick topper is hand carved from a block of wood and then painted by hand to a beautiful finish.
In fact, the whole stick is handmade from start to finish. The wood for the shank is selected and cut locally and then it is dried (seasoned) for two to three years and then steam straightened.
The shank is finished with oil, cut to the desired height and finished with a brass ferrule. The handle is attached to the pole with a steel insert making it very strong and robust.
A hand carved walking stick is not only beautiful but it is made to be used as well. You will get years and years of use out of one of these sticks. They make excellent gifts.
For bespoke requests, the stick maker asks that you send in 4 photographs of your pet (1 from the front, 2 profile pictures and 1 from the back) to get a perfect likeness. We can also add an engraved collar to make the gift even more personalized.
