Kinn, Inc.

Global, design-driven, branded innovator in pet health


If you’re a pet parent, you know that pets are much more than furry friends — they’re members of the family. But too many of the pet products available today lose sight of that fact. Treats are crammed with unhealthy and unnatural ingredients; leashes and collars are uncomfortable and even painful; food dishes are breeding grounds for bacteria and disease.

At Kinn, we create products that nurture the bond between pets and their people. Combining world-class design and dynamic product innovations, Kinn is the pinnacle of pet-friendly product excellence.


Kinn creates the premium pet products that pets and their parents deserve. Our products solve some of the biggest problems plaguing pet parents today, from getting pets to take their pills to conveniently keeping pets’ food bowls clean and germ-free.
