What makes Rogz distinguish itself from other businesses in the pet industry? Some could say it’s the fact that we’ve been around for years. Others might argue that it’s the quality of our products. But it goes much deeper than just one factor at Rogz.
The true value of Rogz lies in more than our award-winning products . We want you everyone to enjoy every touch point of our brand, and feel the uniqueness in our products and encounters with us.
Here are the ten things that make Rogz truly unique.
Rogz cofounders, Paul Fuller and Irené Raubenheimer, have a shared passion for many things, including a mutual love of the outdoors. This shared passion has led them on many adventures across the globe, and ultimately, led to the foundation of Rogz in 1995. With headquarters in Cape Town, South Africa, Rogz has been making the coolest pet gear for over two decades.
To celebrate our 20th Rogz anniversary in 2015, we published a book called Rogz, The Journey. This book is a trip down memory lane and highlights special moments in our proud history. Download the book here.
Safe and Trusted
We strive to design and produce the best quality and functional pet gear. All components and materials used in our pet gear undergo stringent tests to make sure that they are manufactured to the highest safety standards.
We first test our products in our top secret lab at Rogz HQ, using various methods to test everything from strength to colour. We then send the product out into the field with our test pilots, and they report back on everything from comfort, ease of use and overall product experience.
The Rogz Connect System is a retail category management system that makes merchandising in stores efficient and makes consumer purchasing decisions effective. The benefits of the Connect System are two-fold. For the retailer, this means a merchandising solution and understanding of the full Rogz product offering. For the pet parent, this means buying pet gear that fits perfectly, that suits the activity, and of course looks good!
HQ in Cape Town, South Africa
Local is Lekker (Lekker is an Afrikaans word meaning “awesome”) is important to Rogz. We manufacture the majority of our products in our own factory at Rogz HQ to enhance quality, create supply-channel optimisation and reduce lead-times.
Manufacturing in-house also allows us to focus on and move forward with ESG practices and it means each product has a distinct, unique Rogz DNA, setting it apart in the market.
Rogz has received numerous global awards over the past decade, helping us to not only set ourselves apart from the crowd, but also showcase our heritage, innovation and people.
We are very proud of the local and international awards we have won, and that the credibility and quality of our products are being celebrated across the globe.
Our vision is to be the most enjoyed pet brand on planet earth and beyond!
So what does this mean? It means that we will always stretch ourselves, setting the bar high so we continue to grow.
As a global brand, we take brand satisfaction seriously. The true value of Rogz lies in more than the product. We want you to enjoy every touch point with our products.
