We adopted Sumo as he was already 7 years old. At the moment, we were proud owners of a dog boarding back in 2002. We decided to sell that boarding when we decided to have a family. And Sumo, who was coming to work every day for 5 years with us had to stay back home while when we started our new jobs.
So my wife Kathleen started to work on 2 different projects. One to alleviate stress and separation anxiety for our dog Sumo and another to help children learn more about how they should behave around dogs.
So she started to learn about behaviour and toys and production and moulds and made the Aikiou we know today. Thats why shelters are so important to us. We strongly believe that our products can help prevent bad behaviours and reduce the need to result to surrendering a dog to a shelter due to behavioural problems.
Why as affiliate ? Because it seemed right for us and it ensures for all participants a fair and efficient method of redistribution.
