A New York dog walking company is being sued by Wu-Tang Clan producer and rapper RZA for breach of copyright.

The company provides dog walking and dog sitting services and will soon be offering 'dog hiking'.

RZA, whose real name is Robert Diggs, filed a trademark opposition suit against Woof-Tang Clan owner Marty Cuatchon, according to The New York Daily News.

In court papers RZA said the name and logo of Wu-Tang Clan has been "unmistakably associated" with the hip hop group since 1993.

On the dog company's website they were selling t-shirts inspired by classic hip hop album covers including one from the late Wu-Tang member Ol  Dirty Bastard. However, these are no longer available on the website.

“I am a fan,”Cuatchon told The New York Daily News. “We walk dogs. I thought it was a good idea.”
