Southern Barker is proud to carry RC Pet Products in Louisville, Kentucky. Every story starts with a beginning, and ours began in 1986 in Whistler, British Columbia, when a young entrepreneur by the name of Rory Carr began making products for skiers and snowboarders who play in Canada's rugged mountains.
How we got involved in the pet business nine years later is a funny story. After mistakenly ordering 10,000 instead of 100 yards of nylon webbing for ski straps, Rory didn't want the product to go to waste. He realized this same tough, dependable webbing could be perfect for dog leashes and collars, and he was right. It was a steep learning curve and breaking into the pet market was anything but a walk in the park, but in 1995 Rory was in the pet business.
