Outward Hound, a portfolio company of The Riverside Company, has acquired Dublin Dog from The Remington Outdoor Company in a deal announced today.

Dublin Dog, which is made for real dogs and made for real life, was created by Jason Watson. Inspired by growing up on the shores of Hawaii and going on outdoor adventures with his own dogs, he saw the need for waterproof, stink proof and dirt proof collars and gear. Made in the USA, the 100 percent waterproof, all style, no stink collar was born.

“Since 2006, Dublin Dog has created some of the most innovative products in the pet space, and our new partnership will complement our current product lines,” Outward Hound CWO (Chief Woof Officer) Kyle Hansen said.

Offering new distribution channels and entry into new product segments, the add-on will further advance Outward Hound’s mission to improve the lives of pet parents with meaningful innovations that deliver on the brand promise to “Raise The Woof.”

“We’re excited to add the Dublin Dog line of products to the successful Outward Hound portfolio,” Riverside Vice President Steve Rice said. “This strategically complementary combination creates exciting opportunities and a new platform for growth for the Outward Hound brand.”

This is the fourth acquisition for Outward Hound after Petstages Dog and Cat Products, Bionic Supernatural Strong Rubber Toys, and Nina Ottosson Dog and Cat Puzzle Games since being acquired by Riverside in August 2013.
