Did you know...?

Unlike products for human consumers, there are no regulatory standards for hazardous chemicals in pet products?  The Ecology Center based in the U.S. tested over 400 dog and cat products, including chew toys, stuffed toys, tennis balls, collars, leashes, and beds.  Not surprisingly, there were alarming levels of toxic chemicals found.  Unfortunately, many were big brand names.  Of the products tested:

45% contained hazardous chemicals
25% contained lead

Some of the substances they found – lead, antimony, arsenic, cadmium, chromium and mercury – can seriously damage the nervous system, and can enter the body through breathing, the skin or mucous membranes and contaminated food.  BPA and phthalates found in plastic and rubber toys affect hormone levels and can even cause cancer when consumed, and are released by heat, mechanical pressure and saliva - just like a dog's chewing. 

Hiccup Dog, go fetch!

Hiccup Dog is an online shop based in Hong Kong.  Being dog owners ourselves, we definitely don't want the family dog (Hiccup, a Jack Russell terrier) to be munching on these kind of toys.  Hiccup Dog was created to find the best toys and other awesome dog things that are free of scary, harmful substances, and planet friendly.  We may not have the widest range of dog products, as our goal is not to bombard you with everything under the sun, nor do we just devote a small section of our store to natural, safe and eco-friendly products (other stores that have these will most likely be selling harmful synthetic ones at the same time!). Our entire store is consistent with these values:

Made from all natural materials such as cotton, hemp, jute, coconut fiber, wool.

Plastic or rubber must be non-toxic, BPA and phthalates free. 

Environmentally friendly by being recyclable, made from recycled materials, or biodegradable.

High quality brands from the USA and UK.

Nothing that we wouldn't give to our own dog.

Going beyond familiar big brand names to find vendors with the same values as us, including small crafts-makers.
We hope this makes dogs in Hong Kong healthier and their owners happier! Can't find what you're looking for here?  Let us know and we will see if we can source it for you.

Our website is set up to ship to customers in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan and China at the moment.  International customers can contact us by email at contact@hiccupdog.hk and we will let you know if delivery to your country can be arranged.
