About us

We all know that magical moment putting one front in front of the other. It’s an adventure. And for Tyker, the very best adventures happen when out with our dogs. ‘Walkies’ for us, isn’t just a chore. Something that needs to done each morning and night. It’s a celebration of the joy of being alive. Epic expedition or a quick wander around the park, we’ve got exactly what your canine companion needs to make the most of the great outdoors.


Did you know ‘Tyker’ is an old Scottish Phrase for any fellow adventurer with four furry paws? Which is apt, as our home is deep in the wilds of the Highlands. From a day out on the hills to hours on the beach, Tyker offers the highest standards in outdoor dog accessories and equipment. Whatever the great British outdoors throws at you, you can be sure of one thing. Your pet will be safe, stylish and want for nothing. (Apart from that pork pie in your backpack.) 


John, is all round top dog, founder and brains behind tyker. “Growing up in Scotland, I spent my life surrounded by wildlife and extreme weather. I soon learnt the hard way that what’s needed is equipment you can rely on. I soon became frustrated when I couldn’t find it anywhere. Which is why I started Tyker. I believe dogs deserve the same high standards in outdoor kit as we do.”


We guarantee you won’t find quality, durability or design quite like ours. Certainly not in your local pet store. We use only the highest-grade Cordura (3 times stronger than other nylons) and our eyecatching dog jackets and beds use Primaloft® high-performance insulation. Everything is tested here, on the rugged peaks of Highlands, by a team who love their dogs to provide yours with many years of exploring.
