Meet Alcott

Alcott offers dogs and their owners a complete line of gear and accessories to turn everyday walks into extraordinary adventures. Alcott products are designed to offer ease (and fun) of use for humans, comfort and safety for dogs and a lifetime of adventure for both.

our commitment

At Alcott, we’re committed to bringing adventure and fun into the lives of dogs and dog owners across the country. Whether on land or in water, around the block or across the country, there’s an unforgettable adventure waiting to be had, and we’re ready to help you discover it and make the most of it.

the pack leaders

The backbone of our Alcott team is a group of thrill seeking, trail walking, globetrotting dog lovers. Like you, we know the difference even a little adventure can make in a dog’s life. And as devoted, slightly obsessed dog owners, we know that having a furry friend by your side makes any experience a million times better. 

alison // brand manager + product developer

Alison is Alcott's brand manager, self-proclaimed in-house comedian and master doodler. When she's not thinking up the next great adventure item, she's giving a creative boost to our website, social profiles, packaging and marketing pieces. 

Besides her two rescue dogs, Typo and Murphy, Alison' second great love is all things penguin... or wait, maybe that's chocolate. Either way, Alison is the brains of the operation around the Alcott basecamp and we wouldn't have it any other way. 

And she recently began a new adventure... motherhood! 

aimee // customer advocate + support

Armed with knowledge of all things alcott, Aimee can help anyone with just about anything. Want to know where your order is? No problem. Wondering what size boots to get your Labradoodle? She's got you covered! And most importantly, she won't talk at you... she'll talk with you and really listen to your needs, concerns and questions.

And when she's not handling incoming inquiries from alcott customers, you can find her spending time with her family or out on a lake rowing.

steve // photographer + graphics generator

We're not quite sure where Steve came from, but we're convinced it's a distant planet called Adobe. He only speaks a few words that the rest of us non-graphicky people can actually understand. When he's not confusing us with his tech-speak, he's busy blowing our minds with his Photoshop and Illustrator skills. He can take Alison's crazy doodles and turn them into beautiful photos and graphics that help us promote the alcott brand and products to all of you.

the pack

But enough about us. It’s time for you to meet the most important, hands-down cutest, members of our team: our four-legged sidekicks who inspired our brand and our gear. This furry team is comprised of three rescued mutts and one soon-to-be-enormous Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. We wanted to spend more time with these adventurous domesticated beasts, so we needed the right gear to make it fun, safe, easy and convenient for both of us.  We reward them for their product testing and modeling with plenty of butt scratches, belly rubs and treats. Without them our gear wouldn't be as road tested or pup approved!

We've also lost a few of our best friends along this incredible journey, but they continue to live on in our hearts and even on our packaging! And even though we would rather have them here with us, it's always a treat to see them around the office. 

for media

Dog-loving media can be part of the adventure, too. Be sure to check out our newsroom with our latest press + promotional materials. You can also find some of our brand graphics here, but don't hesitate to contact us if you need anything else or have a specific request.

Sizing Guide

Some pet parents ask us, "why don't you put a minimum + maximum dog weight on the packaging so I know which size to get my dog?". We have a few responses to that question, but the most common one is simply: every dog is different. Even within their own breeds, dog body shapes and weights vary drastically. Can you imagine buying your clothes based on your weight?! It just isn't practical. So before you invest in our adventure gear, we suggest measuring your thrill sniffer first. It might take a few extra minutes now, but it will save many more minutes + frustration by having to go through the return/exchange process. 

Within our brand, we have done our best to create a consistent sizing system. If your dog wears our medium collar, it is likely that they will also need a medium bed and wear medium apparel + accessories. However, that's not always the case. Take Typo Cremeans, our rescued mystery mutt, for instance... his head is an small, his neck is a medium and his body can range between large and medium. We've met a few pugs and boston terriers along the way that can wear both small and medium harnesses comfortably. All of our gear that your pup has to wear around their neck, chest and/or waist is adjustable. So your particular dog could be the largest possible size of our medium gear or the smallest possible size that our large gear goes. You won't know until you measure, so please refer to our handy dandy sizing guides below before you buy.

If you're unsure, send some pictures of your dog to us at hello@alcottadventures.com and we'll do our best to fit your dog virtually. We'll exchange your gear for free if we guess wrong.

Heck, we'll even do that if you guess wrong. Click here to check out our return + exchange policy.
