Our story

It all started with a high energy labrador mix called Sandy! My name is James McIlvenna and I am the designer of K9 Connectables dog toys and back in 2013 my wife surprised me with a puppy!

Sandy had a lovely personality and extremely high energy, despite lots of walks and attention we struggled to channel her energy which often led to destructive behavior.

We created a team of designers, marketers and industry experts with the aim of designing a range of toys that would stimulate her mind, engage her senses and satisfy her desire to tear and break things apart ! 

We used 3D printing technology to help us develop and test out our designs on dogs of all shapes and sizes... 

We tested over 100 different prototypes on hundreds of dogs and worked with dog behavior experts and trainers to fine tune and perfect our toys...

In November 2015 we formed our new company called Dog Day Design LTD. The first toys in the range of K9 Connectables help alleviate common problems for dog owners such as boredom, loneliness, separation anxiety and lack of mental stimulation. We hope you and your dog enjoy our toys and if you have any questions or comments please feel free to get in touch through our contact section.
