Katie's Bumpers™, established in 2002, was inspired by a remarkable dog named Katie, a Blue Heaven Newfoundland. The founders, Jill and Greg, recognized the need for a better bumper for water training, leading to the creation of the cylindrical Katie's Bumpers™ with a flush rope design. Today, the brand is known for its authentic and durable dog toys. The products are made sustainably in the USA from rubber-free fire hose material and marine-grade rope. Remember, these toys are not for chewing and should be used for interactive play. Take your best friend outdoors and enjoy fetching, training, and tugging with Katie's Bumpers™ toys.
