No more synthetic collars! Plant-based collars are so soft and comfortable.

Gnawdog believes in the power of nature.
Therefore, we use natural, chemically unprocessed bast fiber to create accessories for dogs.
Big change always begins with the first step. We believe that one of them is the use of natural fabrics. Plastic use is not only straws or bottles. It's also synthetic materials that create micro-plastic in our oceans.
You know longer need to put products on your pets that harm them or the planet.
Bast fibers are extremely durable
In the past, ropes and ship sails were made from them. So they can easily keep your big dog safe.
We have been learning over the years that fabrics made of plastic are making micro-plastics that get into the ocean then back into our food.
Made from traditionally dry spun fiber. It is grown and processed with nothing but pure water.
Naturally Cleans teeth
Rope chew toys are a great way to keep your pups teeth clean. Our toys are natural and contain no toxins like synthetic rope dog toys or cotton toys.
Bast fibers require less water than cotton and no pesticides! Cotton is one of the largest polluters on the planet. Bast is better!
Bast fibers are known to be naturally anti-bacterial. Plants have substances in them that do this.
People love us, dogs too!
If your anything like me and love everything natural then this brand is for you!! My collar has very strong clips, so you don’t have to worry about them breaking easy. I love the fact that it is from hemp which is biodegradable! I highly recommend this one!
Being the owner of a husky means my boy Wolfgang is a constant flight risk. There are few products and materials that give me the confidence to take my sled dog out for a pull, but the durable hemp fiber of the harness from Gnaw Dog has done just that.
Love the hemp dog collar! Sturdy, strong clip for the leash! Also highly recommend the leash which has the ability to be used as a long lead or short as well. The martingale style collar I also really liked, my dog can't slip out of it. Good quality items!
The company began in Poland, but was named by my friend Brian Petras. We were friends in the Air Force when we served. During his service, he was diagnosed with cancer. He fought for a really long time. He ran in the Boston Marathon and even rode his bike from San Francisco to Virginia Beach. We wanted to sail the world together!
Before he passed away he named this brand. I dedicate this site to him! I miss you buddy!
Bast fibers are much stronger than cotton. The can be less wear resistant than synthetic fibers though. Dogs nails are very abrasive and dog teeth are very sharp. I know that might sound obvious but if your dog is constantly scratching at themselves the collar will get damaged, it's not plastic, it's not kevlar.
Also, if your dog is a chewer, don't let your pup chew on the leash, yes they can chew through the leash in about 5 minutes, but you can pull a car with the leashes. Tensile strength is not the same thing.
Everything we use is sourced from the EU. All of our fiber yarns comes from Poland, Romania or Hungary. The fiber is then sent to Poland where everything is made by hand by a loving crew of eco-passionate people.
We use metal where possible. In fact, we buy our metal parts from the same supplier used for making horse equipment. We tried for a long time to find an alternative to plastic. We even tried to get a bio-plastic parts made. The truth is even metal isn't strong enough in the form of a buckle.
We don't need a mail man getting bit because of a broken buckle. That's why we chose to use the patent pending hammerlock buckle.
We couldn't justify using chemicals to color this product. There are some natural ways to dye bast fibers at home if that is something you would be interested in.
Bast fibers are incredibly durable and strong! There are many plant based bast fibers and they are all cleaner and use less chemicals and toxins than synthetic and cotton fibers.
The truth is we know it's strong and we know it's grown and processed without chemicals. If you would like to know more about our products be sure to contact us.
