We are a family owned business.
We grew up in Northern British Columbia, living on 10 acres of land with lots of animals and pets. We always had a dog and a cat, so began our love for animals. Moving forward – my sister and I both now live in Ontario. We both have dogs and like most pet owners, we love our little furry friends. And most dogs like a variety of toys to play with, a constant supply of bones, a good strong lease for walks and healthy treats.
