The DogFriendlyAreas Story

Hi, I’m Elena, the founder of DogFriendlyAreas, a small collective of dog enthusiasts and professionals dedicated to improving the relationship between people and their canine companions.  

Our Roots

You could say that DogFriendlyAreas’s roots actually go all the way back to 1966 on a Michigan family farm.  My grandfather made and repaired the tack for the working animals.

So my grandfather went to work, crafting collars for them.  The results were successful and he was soon the local go-to for collars, leashes, and more.  He continued to craft these products throughout his life.
