Our Tail

We wondered; can a dog lead design make humans as excited as our waggy-tailed friends when it’s time for a W.A.L.K?

I’m Andrea, founder of HI JAC. Together with my Chief Inspiration Officer, Andre the Chihuahua, we set out to create a range of unique, stylish, functional and sustainable pet products.

Introducing our first co-creation, the HI JAC dog lead range

Most strap style dog leads crush the human’s hand when doggo gets extra energetic or gets a whiff of something exciting. Retractable leads don’t allow the best grip and look a bit daggy!

HI JAC dog leads have a solid industrial chic, feel great in your hand, get heads turning and tails wagging, with a focus on not harming the environment.

Watch our hands-on production process in full swing!

Our feature handle is made in a hands-on, small batch production process in Sydney, Australia from precious plastic; 100% recycled pet shampoo bottles.


We combined a terrific trio of local Sydney businesses who are all committed to our cause to make sustainable pet products. So, let’s hear 3 barks for:

People & Things

Industrial designers who took our brief and ran with it to create our signature, ergonomic HI JAC handle design.

Sustainable Salons

Planet savers who collect used shampoo and conditioner bottles from Sydney’s participating salons, turning them into a reusable raw material for our handle.

Defy Design
Specialise in local small batch production here in Sydney so that each dog lead gets the attention it deserves before it arrives into the hands of every dog-loving eco-warrior in town.
