It was a challenge to create a functional dog door knocker design that portrayed the intelligent, gentle disposition of a greyhound whilst, at the same time, highlighting its powerful sleek form. After many experimental castings, we settled on a resting pose. Turned slightly to the left, our greyhound’s head rests on outstretched front legs whilst its muscular hind legs are bent underneath its rump. The subtle curve in its body shows the beautiful contours of a greyhound’s back and neck. We were careful to keep the intricate detail in the front paws and the delicate structure of the ribs. The characteristic greyhound ears are resting in a neutral position.
Although slender and graceful, this dog door knocker weighs almost 1.2 kg and has a resounding knock. The long thin body lends itself perfectly to the functionality of a door knocker. It rests on a hidden knocker stop and is the perfect shape to hold and knock. It is a statement piece and is perfect if you’re looking for a quirky alternative to a traditional Georgian door knocker (or just because you love greyhounds!)

Fitting your door knocker
Isaurus is a surface mounted brass door knocker. Easy to install, our custom-designed fitting bracket will ensure it stays firmly in place on your front door. As it is surface mounted, there will be no nuts or bolts seen protruding on the inside of your front door. We include screws and fittings for wood doors.
Natural chemical-free aged brass finish with a slight sheen. A clear sealant is applied which will protect your door knocker and prevent it from tarnishing. This is a thin and durable coating that, unlike a lacquer, will not crack or peel. It contains elevated levels of anti-oxidants which gives protection against acid rain and salt air. No need for metal cleaning products, just wipe with a soft cloth periodically. If you would prefer your door knocker to continue to age further, please leave a note at checkout and we will not apply our sealant.
Our polished door knockers show brass in its natural state. After casting they are highly polished until very bright and shiny. This finish can be maintained using a metal cleaner and soft wire brush or if left unpolished your door knocker will dull and age naturally. If you would like your door knocker to remain highly polished without regular cleaning, we can add our protective sealant. Please let us know by making a note at checkout.
Our pewter finish is currently available for our Dachshund. A quality pewter plating has been applied to the brass and our sealant added. Wipe periodically with a soft cloth.
