The Kurgo mission is simple: create products that help dogs and their owners get outside and enjoy life together. Whether it’s a short car ride, a long road trip, a hike into the woods or a swim in the lake, Kurgo products has you covered.
Spater brothers, Kitter and Gordie, grew up in Vermont, surrounded by dogs. They also grew up around their parents apparel manufacturing and retail business. These two things made for the perfect business idea – designing and manufacturing products that help owners enjoy their active lifestyles with their dogs!
After a scary incident with Kitter’s beloved Plott Hound flying into the front seat of his car, they saw a need for their first product. The Backseat Barrier was invented to keep your dogs safe in the backseat and you safe in the front seat. After that, they set out to create more real products that real pet parents need.
To Kitter and Gordie, their products are personal. They are personally involved in the design and production of each product. They take great pride in the quality of their products. Kurgo stands behind everything they make with a Lifetime Warranty. From leashes and collars to travel essentials like car seat covers and car harnesses, Kurgo makes everything you need to explore the world with your furry friend.
