About Us

Doggy Eco founders

We provide access to a world of adventure for dogs and dog lovers, by providing to dogs and their humans an expanding line of eco friendly dog accessories and sustainable dog toys purpose built for exploring the great outdoors so that dogs and their humans can celebrate the unparalleled beauty of their natural world while bringing no harm to the environments through which they tread.

The adventure begins

Doggy Eco’s journey to become an eco friendly pet brand began with a personal passion for the environment. Taking our own dogs for beach adventures and hikes led to the realisation that a lot of the equipment we were using with our dogs was not eco friendly – it incorporated a lot of nylon, synthetic rubber and polyester.

The problem was that when searching for eco friendly dog accessories, all we could find was natural cotton. Something that would be destroyed by our dog’s active outdoor lifestyle in mere seconds! We needed something that was not only eco friendly, but durable and purpose built for our adventures. We needed something that would enable our dogs to play dirty while keeping the planet clean! Hence Doggy Eco began. A combined love of protecting the natural environment while enjoying everything it has to offer with our dogs by our side.

The journey so far

In 2019 Doggy Eco attended our first trade show at the Gold Coast Pet and Animal Expo with one single design collar and leash – “Soda”. From humble beginnings we have now expanded our range to include collars, leashes, harnesses, poop bag holders, drying robes, toys and travel bowls. All Doggy Eco products have been designed with the dual purposes of function and sustainability. You will find many of our products have dual functions to make life a little easier when out on adventures. This is something that sets Doggy Eco apart from our competitors. It not only makes our products more versatile but also minimises waste.

Our Achievements

In 2020 Doggy Eco created the Eco Ball which is the first dog toy we have developed with a Circular Economy model. They are made from 100% New Zealand sheep wool that is hand felted into compact balls that are brightly coloured with toxic free dye. When the balls have finished their usefulness as a dog toy they can be returned to the earth as natural compost. The Eco Ball has been featured in Australian Dog Lover and was also recommended for an AA Environmental Possibility Award 2021.

Where to from here

Doggy Eco is continually evolving with the sustainability movement. We are always looking for opportunity to improve our practices and products in line with new sustainable textiles and manufacturing opportunities. We are currently partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects where 1 tree is planted for every purchase made through the Doggy Eco website.

If you have a textile you think would be a good fit for Doggy Eco or would like to engage in a partnering opportunity with Doggy Eco, send us an inquiry at support@doggyeco.com and we will respond as soon as possible.
