This Brooklyn-based pet accessories collection got its start when founding partners Bethany Obrecht and Anna Conway met while walking their rescue pups…both named Walter. A nautical rope-inspired dog leash was the company’s very first product in 2006. Since then, they’ve expanded to beds, collars, toys, and totes, all made using rugged, all-weather materials.
The company’s mission is to raise awareness for pet adoption, but they’re also passionate about supplying pets and their owners with the highest-quality goods. All of their marine-grade ropes, hardware, and fabrics are sourced domestically and made for use in all environments.
A whopping 25 percent of profits go to dog rescue organizations—and between the two founders, they’ve fostered over 50 animals, including a pair of pit bull puppies, a kitten, a Rottweiler, and a golden retriever mix.
