Denise - Owner

Meet Denise! She is the proud owner/operator of Top Dog Gear. Involved in all aspects of the operation, whether designing the website, fulfilling orders, or talking to you! Top Dog Gear was started after discovering BioThane® collars for her dogs, Kali & Lucy and began to research and invest time into new products and ideas.

She keeps busy in her time off with her two dogs and horse. Lucy is a 12-year-old Golden Retriever - she has never slowed down and is always up for an adventure. Five years ago, she bought home Kali, a Golden Retriever/German Shepard mix, she is a high-energy dog who loves to run and swim. Lastly, Teddy is an 20-year-old thoroughbred gelding who she has owned for twelve years now!

During the pandemic, Denise became an avid outdoorsman, fell in love with hiking and spending time in the great outdoors. While on these adventures, it became clear the dogs needed a collar that was durable, waterproof, stink-proof and required little maintenance. She came across the product BioThane®, and the rest is history.
