FOR ALL OUR PETS
We believe that as a community we are responsible for all pets. For All Our Pets was formed by Chelsea who after bringing rescue Zeus into her home found how hard it was to find enrichment toys that were good enough for her special boy. Secondly, he couldn't handle the puppy food that was recommended by the vet resulting in constant stomach upsets. Where could she buy high quality items that she could give Zeus without worry? She couldn't and so For All Our Pets was born.
Finding products she wanted was easy but getting them took work. Looking back we took a big bite and we wanted it all.
Learning the importance of enrichment for animals kept as pets, species appropriate food and high quality health care items is a continual evolution for us. We want to be educated pet owners and support other pet owners in their journey on this path.
Your value is in our values.
Quality time with our pets
Mentally and physically healthy pets
Education - spreading the word
Being environmentally sustainable
It all started with a high energy labrador mix called Sandy! My name is James McIlvenna and I am the designer of K9 Connectables dog toys and back in 2013 my wife surprised me with a puppy!
Sandy had a lovely personality and extremely high energy, despite lots of walks and attention we struggled to channel her energy which often led to destructive behavior.
We created a team of designers, marketers and industry experts with the aim of designing a range of toys that would stimulate her mind, engage her senses and satisfy her desire to tear and break things apart!
We used 3D printing technology to help us develop and test out our designs on dogs of all shapes and sizes..
We tested over 100 different prototypes on hundreds of dogs and worked with dog behavior experts and trainers to fine tune and perfect our toys...
The first toys in the range of K9 Connectables help alleviate common problems for dog owners such as boredom and lack of mental stimulation. We hope you and your dog enjoy our toys.
Kong founder, Joe Markham, loved his trained police dog, Fritz, but did not love his destructive chewing habits. Where other dogs might have chewed your shoes or favourite purse, Fritz loved to crunch on rocks, sticks and other harmful items. Fritz’s teeth were wearing down and his need for stimulation and play was not being met, and Joe was frustrated.
One day while working on a VW bus, Joe began throwing out car parts to lure Fritz away from those rocks. Fritz was immediately taken with a rubber suspension part and dropped in in to Joe’s lap to play. The erratic bounce and toughness of the rubber inspired Joe.
We’ve been making KONGs from our own proprietary, pet-safe, built-to-chew rubber ever since. Dogs love KONG. The way it bounces keeps them engaged and ready to play, it has a soft mouth feel for a satisfying chew, and of course, is super durable. Owners love KONG too; they can stuff it, throw it, leave it out in the yard – KONG keeps coming back for more.
SKINNYDOG PET TREATS
SkinnyDog Pet Treats began when co-founders Danielle and Sarah realised there were few, if any, ethically sourced, natural pet treats available in Western Australia. With their own pets’ health, factory farming and animal ethics in mind SkinnyDog Pet Treats was created.
SkinnyDog Pet Treats promises to supply natural pet treats that are made from pasture raised, free range, organic and sustainable sources, and are Western Australian wherever possible. They are 100% single ingredient and contain no additives, preservatives or growth hormones.
The end result is a pet treat that doesn’t just hold up to high standards of ethical integrity, but also contains a high quality of meat, meaning your pet will be healthier and happier.
