No, it's an almost redish brown, but I can't seem to find it in P@H anymore, I think they stopped :(

If you pop into homebase or similar and read the backs it usually says whether it's pet safe on the back or it will have the manufacturers contact information to so you can and check. I think Cuprinol Garden Shades is okay and comes in a variety of colours :)

I used cuprinol "heritage" (I wanted to be posh) garden shades. It's been a little chewed to no ill effect. I really like it actually - seems really well waterproof. It needed two coats and then another coat a year later - you do use up quite a bit mind you!
