OUR STORY

Outward Hound® was founded to improve the lives of pet parents with meaningful innovations that Raise The Woof!

A lofty goal? Sure. But that’s why we’ve built a team of dog-loving designers and product experts. We believe that good products should do more than satisfy a need: they should make life with your dog healthier, happier & more fun! They should inspire you to try new things and empower you to discover new possibilities with your furry friend.

Dog products should be durable, engaging & fun.

We work to solve common problems in fun & engaging ways. Whether it’s creating a smarter feeder that helps your dog eat healthier or designing a toy that can truly stand up to tough chewers, we’re dedicated to making quality products that you and your dog can enjoy for a long time.

We love dogs as much as they love us.

Our dogs make our lives better, and everyone at Outward Hound is dedicated to returning the favor. We do it for the dogs and the people who love them. That’s who we are. That’s who inspires us.

It all started with our dogs.

As new pet parents, my wife and I realized there were things that we needed for our dogs that just didn’t exist. Whether it was a life jacket for the beach, or a more durable fun toy, our love for our dogs inspired us to make the things that would allow us have more fun with them at home & take them with us everywhere.

In the same way, I believe that we can only Raise The Woof if we do it together—you, me & all of our dogs. If you have an idea, a question or even just a comment, please feel free to email me at kyle dot hansen at outwardhound dot com. I look forward to hearing from you!

Raise The Woof!
