Social Responsibility

D0gh0use is a passion project born out of a frustration at the sheer amount of junk on the market for dogs, and my deep seeded love for animals and nature. As a small business, I want to use this retail platform to cultivate a responsible community of dog lovers who care passionately about all animals and the planet.

 Every choice we make as fur parents impacts the wellbeing of animals, the environment and people.

We're looking at better ways of doing things from where we find our companion animals to how we treat their waste.

ANIMAL WELFARE & RESCUE.

Since launching d0gh0use in November 2019 I’ve donated what we can, when we can to various animal welfare groups. I endeavour to give more regularly to selected charities doing incredible work saving animals and raising awareness around animal cruelty in society.

PRODUCT CRITERIA.

RENEWABLE, RECYCLED, QUALITY MATERIALS

Once chewed and destroyed, synthetic pet products mostly end up in landfill where they never decompose. We limit plastic and choose durable, non-toxic products made of recyclable materials or natural fibres which can decompose naturally at end of their life.

DESIGN & DURABILITY

Because we shouldn't have to compromise on beauty and durability for sustainability.

NO NASTIES

To ensure we do our bit to prevent toxic chemicals from going down the drain, and onto do a number on the environment, we source dog toys and non-toxic shampoos and grooming products free of toxic dyes and parabens. Safe for your pet and the planet.

ZERO WASTE
You may think leaving dog poop behind after Fido goes to the bathroom is completely natural but...its not. Dog poop is nitrogen rich meaning once it hits waterways its incredibly toxic, harming humans, fish and wildlife. Statistics show that up to 4% of landfill is poop. In plastic bags that won't break down, whereas non plastic, compostable bags are gone in approximately 3 months. Choose to dispose of your dog poop thoughtfully using newspaper when at home and when out in public using plastic free, compostable, biodegradable poop bags
