Firedogs are used as ornamental supports for Dog Grate/baskets. Consideration should be given to the extra widtg required in a fireplace opening to accommodate the feet span of the firedogs.
Cast Iron Firedogs can, if preferred be used without a Dog Basket. Seasoned logs can be lent against the cross bars and burnt on the hearth base, providing there is a good draw in the chimney.
All Fire Dogs are sold as pairs
