Bark Up The Right Breeze

Anyone who has driven with a dog knows that there's nothing Fido loves more than fetching a few gusts and letting his tongue wag in the wind. Just like a real dog, this windsurfing garden pooch gently laps up the breeze while staking a claim on outdoor whimsy. Fun and a touch exotic, this furry friend is sure to get tails wagging when you let him sit playfully in your yard.

Handcrafted by artisans in Bali of welded sheet metal painted a rich palette of autumnal hues that naturally oxidize over time into a lustrous patina.

Wipe clean with a soft cloth. Item is powder coated, but if left to oxidize naturally, the surface will turn to a pleasant rusty patina. To help retain existing finish apply a clear exterior grade polyurethane sealant. Allow to completely dry before exposing to moisture or sunlight. Minimal assembly required. Due to handmade nature, each will vary slightly.
This piece also comes with a hook to hang the unit if you prefer.

    Comments about DOG BALANCER STAKE:

    There are 2 options for using this product. It can be hung or it can "float" on a ground stake. My first one I had hanging & 2 days after purchase the weld from chain to bar broke. I called Uncommon Goods and they sent a replacement immediately. This one was broken on arrival so a 3rd set was sent. (Both at no cost to me). The 3rd set seems fine and is happily on display in my backyard 2 weeks later. It is a happy, fun piece to add to any yard/garden, but inspect weld spots carefully to be sure they are solid before displaying. I do wish the stake was a bit more sturdy as it can tend to lean one way or the other to easily, but hanging up the piece is awesome.

        I bought this as a present for my mother. It arrived earlier than expected and was packaged very well. My mother loved the balancer and so did many of our other family members! They all asked where I found it so they could order their own!

            Comments about DOG BALANCER STAKE:

            I was thrilled to have my aunt in Austria unwrap this gift after searching for something unique for her garden and wanting something she could remember us by every time she watched it dancing in the breeze. I needed a lightweight, flat gift to pack in a suitcase for our overseas visit and this was perfect! It doesn't have that store bought look, but looks more like I found it at an Art Fair as a one-of-a-kind creation. It was larger and taller than I imagined, so it works well in a larger yard. The only drawback is the muted coloring makes it hard to see from a distance, but that has it not look kitschish either.

                I love this cute doggie stake. It's nicely made and very attractive. It moves around gracefully in the breeze. I put it up in my perennial garden.
