What is Outward Hound?

We are just a bunch of people who love dogs as much as they love us. With 5 brands under our 1 Woof (Outward Hound, Petstages, Bionic, Dublin Dog & Nina Ottosson), we’ve dedicated our lives to creating meaningful innovations that will improve the lives of dogs and pet parents everywhere! 

Didn’t you guys used to be called Kyjen or Plush Puppies or Dog Games? Didn’t Outward Hound used to be just dog gear? What the heck is going on here?

Yep, we used to be all those things! We celebrate a long history of creating award-winning innovations for dogs everywhere. But now we are simply Outward Hound—5 brands under 1 woof with one vision to create meaningful product experiences that truly Raise The Woof!
