Let us make a lifelike miniature of your dog
At Wild Woolly Dogs we specialise in making soft lifelike miniatures of your dog.
Using needle felt techniques we try and capture the colours and character of your dog so that you have a lifelike model you can hold and keep forever.
Wild Woolly Dogs are unique and gifts and memorials of your dog.
Needle felted dogs are created with patience and precision. Fibre artists Dianne and Annette specialise in making dogs that look surprisingly like the real life inspiration. These felted dogs are sculptured freehand using a fine needle and sometimes one fibre of wool.
Your much cherished pet can be kept by your side to be remembered forever. Felted dogs makes a wonderful gift for someone who has recently lost there loved pet. Felted dogs memorialise your pet and are reminders for years to come.
Wild Woolly Dogs vary in size from 12 – 35cm long and 10-25cm high depending on the breed.
The inspiration behind Wild Woolly Dogs was to create something very cool, totally eco-friendly and sustainable that showcased Dianne’s and Annette’s love of dogs.
Dogs provide a friendship that is unconditional, positive, and always warm. Our strong attachment to dogs makes it particularly difficult when we lose them. Dianne and Annette are richly rewarded when they see the joy of a dog owner holding their lost dog again.
Accessories such as collars, mats, coats, balls can be added at $15 per item.
Taking a photograph of your dog
In order to give you the best representation of your dog, we need 4-6 views to work from. Please have a look at these photos and send us similar views of your dog.
If your dog has any special or identifying features please photograph these for us. We will do our best to build these features in.
Incorporate your dog’s fur in your felted dog
If you wish, we can incorporate a small amount of your dog’s fur into the commission. This memorialises your dog forever and gives a truly unique element to your felted dog. If you would like to do this, please tell Dianne and Annette at the time of making the order. There is no charge for this service.
Your felted dog
Dianne and Annette really want you to love your dog and work hard to ensure all their customers are happy with their work. They can make small changes, such as minor markings, but cannot make any major changes from the original request, such as change of position once started.
Please also be aware we strive very hard to achieve realistic results and to duplicate your pet as close as is possible. However, using the colours and textures of sheep’s wool has it’s limitations. The artwork is an artistic likeness to your pet.
