Our Story
James is a retired steel worker from US Steel, who now works from home managing the antler business and helping with the kids. Mandy is a pharmacist, contract medical writer, and full-time mom to 5-year-old Brielle, ​2-year-old Eva, newborn baby Haleigh, 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. We knew we had to do something since it was not possible to take Sam with us everywhere.

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.

Where Are We Located?
As O’Fallon, IL natives, our family of 6 recently fulfilled a decades-old dream of moving to Phoenix in pursuit of better recreational opportunities for our family, with fewer distractions and stresses.  We now proudly reside in the city of Gilbert, AZ!

James and Amanda are a husband-wife team making antlers and shipping them right from our own home. We do not have a physical store. Because of this we continue to offer FREE economy shipping on all our products. We have built our business by traveling to Pet Expos and Dog Shows all over the country offering our Deer Antler Chews to pet lovers nationwide. Since the pandemic has put our show visits on hold, we are working more than ever to grow our online presence!

Meet Our Mascot
We adopted Sam in 2012 from a local kennel 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?
Sam LOVES them and is the sole 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!
