Who We Are
We Are Dog’s Best Friend
They bring happiness, comfort, love, and lightness into our lives. They’re called “man’s best friend” for a reason. But our goal—like yours—is to be “dog’s best friend.” We do this by making things dogs love. You know, anything that goes along with jumping, running, chewing, napping, cuddling, and playing. And we want the fun to go on... and on.
That’s why we guarantee every product. We’ll replace or refund any product that doesn’t live up to your customers’ standards. We also care about how we make the things dogs love. After all, we want our best friends to be safe and healthy. We make everything ourselves—in our own factory—so we know what goes into every product.
Beyond dogs, we care about people and the planet too. We’re eco-friendly in our materials and manufacturing choices and people-friendly in our business choices. It’s not easy being dog’s best friend, but, it’s worth it.
We’re West Paw, a proud certified B Corp™ company in Bozeman, Montana, USA, and #DogsBestFriend.
“Pets add so much joy to people’s lives and one of our values is to give back to them with great products. Being in Montana, and working with an amazing team of people, is not a bad way to spend my days.”
