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….
