Meet The Brand RC Pets

The groundwork was laid for RC Pets in 1987 in Whistler, British Columbia, when a young entrepreneur Rory Carr began making products for skiers and snowboarders who play in Canada's rugged mountains.

How RC Pets came into existence nine years later is a funny story.  After mistakenly ordering 10,000 instead of 100 yards of nylon webbing for ski straps, Rory didn't want the product to go to waste. He realized this same tough, dependable webbing could be perfect for dog leashes and collars, and he was right.

It was a steep learning curve and breaking into the pet market was anything but a walk in the park, but in 1995 Rory was in the pet business. From trade shows to store visits, the RC Pets team found their fan base with pet guardians who appreciated the same quality of product as they were used to for themselves.
