Company History

KeepDoggieSafe.com all began rather dramatically. It was back in 2006, when the company’s founders, Karen and Jordan Gold, were walking their dog, Wrigley, one night with a lighted leash around downtown Sierra Madre, CA. As they were crossing the street (at a crosswalk!) a car came racing down and slammed on its brakes. The driver apologized and said if he hadn't seen the lighted leash, he would have never stopped.

At the time, lighted leashes weren't easy to find, and there certainly weren't stores nearby with a large selection of safety products for dogs. To solve this problem, KeepDoggieSafe.com was launched shortly after to give dog parents across the country a one-stop-shop for all things dog safety. The business started with a small selection of lighted collars and leashes and has since expanded into new product categories including water safety gear, car safety gear, cooling products, post surgical products and more.

In 2017, the founders of KeepDoggieSafe.com decided it was time to retire and sold their business to Erin and Mike Ewasyshyn in Raleigh, NC. The new owners have pledged to keep the company’s original vision of providing dog parents with a one-stop-shop for all things dog safety. They continue to expand the depth of the website’s product categories with an even greater selection of compassionate, reliable and innovative dog safety products and are committed to keeping your dog’s safety their top priority.
