Founder Peter Maxted has worked within the pet industry for over 20 years, specialising in pet care.

Several years ago, Peter researched dog safety gates to see if he could keep his dog, Jack, and his client's dogs safer at the front door. He found the market to be limited and other products to be ineffective, so Peter decided to design his front door safety gate. And the DOG-G8 was born.

As time passed, there was an ever-increasing demand for gates to fit setups other than the front door, such as Stairways, Motorhomes, Hallways and more. With Dog-G8's unique and patented modular capability, it was easy to meet this demand. Now the business has gates for a variety of configurations.

The Dog-G8 Company is a family business run by father and son, Peter & Chris Maxted. Both are incredibly passionate about dogs and keeping them safer in their day-to-day lives.

The Dog-G8 Company is based in West Sussex and has been trading since September 2019.
