In 2016, a man named Curtis rescued a female German Shepard Mix who he named, Khaya. He quickly realized that her rambunctious energy and manners needed some training. From there a trainer mentioned to try antlers with her to keep her busy and out of trouble.
After seeing how much Khaya enjoyed the antlers and how long they would last, Curtis decided to find antlers that are shed local here in Manitoba. Taking the risk, he decided to start up Antler World, and share the benefits that antlers gave him and his pup.
The first year of this business was ran out of Curtis's house with antlers being the first product to be carried and then it took off with other local products like chicken feet!
With much patience and hard work, the first kiosk was opened at Kildonan Place Mall, Winnipeg MB in the spring of April 2018. We are now a store front in the same mall!
Curtis and Khaya appreciate the many people who supported their dream!
Fast forward to April of 2022, when Kira took over Antler World. Kira bought the business at 23 years old with the same passion and fuel to succeed for the benefit of our pets. She worked as an employee under Curtis for 3 years before becoming the new owner.
Kira has her own spoiled dogs, Emma and Kylo who are both Hungarian Vizsla's!
Antler World has always been locally run with as much local products as possible and we will continue to honor that. Supporting small businesses has never been so important, and we really appreciate everyone on this journey with us.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
