About the Owners
James is a steel worker at US Steel, and Amanda is a pharmacist, contract medical writer, and stay-at-home mom with our 3-year-old daughter Brielle and our dog Sam. We love Sam, and like many dog owners, his voracious chewing has tried our patience at times! Every toy marketed as "indestructible" would be gone within minutes.
So one day, Amanda did some research and decided to have Sam try Deer Antler Chews. But they were too expensive at the pet stores. In January 2015, Amanda and James started to purchase large collections (100s of pounds!) of whole antler to produce our own flavored Deer Antler Chews and offer them at a FAIR price that's competitive against other antler suppliers.
As we do not have a physical store, we travel to Pet Expos and Dog Shows all over the country offering our Deer Antler Chews to pet lovers nationwide. If you haven't seen us in town yet, we're sure to visit soon!
Meet our Mascot
We adopted Sam in 2012 from a kennel here in O'Fallon, IL. He was previously abandoned and running loose around town, scared and hungry. We attribute this abandonment to his extreme separation anxiety. Now that he's getting older, he is finally starting to calm down and has realized we're not going to abandon him. But, he's not lost his knack for chewing!
What about the Deer Antler Chews? He LOVES them! Sam is the real reason we decided to pursue this business. He will literally chew for HOURS straight and make very little (but some) progress, which keeps him determined to chew and chew and chew. We've never seen any dog love a toy so much!
