Dog Rocks' international success rewarded

Dog Rocks Distribution Ltd has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

The company, an ex-regional winner of the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award, entered the European pet market in 2008 and moved into the North American market in 2012.

The Company has grown rapidly and there are now 20 product lines led by Dog Rocks and including the award winning Torus Bowl and Pet Remedy.


Dog Rocks has produced a short film in which CEO Carina Evans explains what the award means to the company. To view the film click here or on the image above.

The Queen’s Award received for International Trade is in recognition of achieving increased year on year export figures, product innovation, sustainability and bringing to international markets unique and where possible natural solutions for pet parents.  

Dog Rocks, thought to have been first recommended by an Aboriginal gardener, helps stop pet urine burning the grass.

“It was a very welcome surprise when the email popped into my inbox signifying a win!  It’s an auspicious date being the Queen’s 90th Birthday and we are delighted to have cause to celebrate with Her Majesty,” says Carina.

The company is owned by three ex-GB athletes who have transferred their skills from sport to business – Andrew Hine and Nick Evans represented GB during their careers playing International Polo and Carina Evans represented GB as a World Cup Skeleton athlete.
