About us

Our Ideology

We believe every product designed for your dog should be designed as well and profoundly as products for human beings.   

PAIKKA re-invents important daily moments in dogs’ lives through inventive sustainable lifestyle products which are safe to use and equipped with uncompromised ergonomic and functional features. 

We deliver outstanding home and outdoor products for all seasons and different life stages of dogs. We offer expert solutions to 60 common problems of dogs and their parents.

The Finnish Nature is Our Home

PAIKKA was born from the need of great pet essentials that are designed from the dog’s perspective and are long lasting even in the tough seasonal conditions of the Finnish nature.

That is why it is paramount for PAIKKA to respect our shared environment.

Each PAIKKA design is created with the best and most durable materials together with respected partners famed for outdoor apparel, fashion and awarded designs for humans.   

We are committed to keep improving our processes and repurpose our textile residues. We always choose the most environmentally friendly materials when possible without compromising the safety and necessary features of the product.

We are dedicated to create the best for your dog and do good for our planet.
