How it all began...
KeepDoggieSafe.com started rather dramatically. It was back in 2006, when we were walking our dog, Wrigley, at night with a lighted leash around downtown Sierra Madre, CA. As we were crossing the street (at a crosswalk!) a car came racing down and slammed on its brakes. He apologized and said if he hadn't seen the lighted leash, he would have never stopped. It was scary then and looking back, it's still scary to think about what could have happened.
Other pedestrians saw what happened that night and asked us where we bought our lighted leash. We bought ours specifically for our nighttime walks, but it wasn't easy to find and there certainly wasn't a store nearby with a large selection of safety items for dogs.
So to solve this problem, we started selling lighted collars and leashes at local events and the word spread fast! We built this website shortly after to give pet parents across the country a one-stop-shop for all things pet safety. We built the business with a small selection of lighted collars and leashes, and over the past 10 years have expanded our offerings to include all types of pet safety products including water safety gear, car safety gear, cooling products and even a large variety of similar items for pet parents!
But even though our product mix has evolved, our goal has stayed the same - to keep you and your dog safe. We're celebrating 10 years of our e-commerce business with a brand new website!
