From one Item...
In 1958, Mr. John Sellen had an idea. An avid field dog trainer, Mr. Sellen developed a training bumper made of canvas and packed with cork. Unmatched in its durability and scent holding qualities, many of Mr. Sellen's hunting colleagues took a liking to this "Canvasback Dummy" and wanted some for their own. So, Mr. Sellen took their orders, went home and began to manufacture the canvas dummies.
To ten thousand items...
Many years and several dummies later, the tradition continues at Canvasback Pet Supplies. Canvasback Pet Supplies has grown considerably since 1959 to include a 3,000 square floor store located near Lockport, Manitoba. The market for pet supplies has changed since then and so have we. We strive to provide a wide variety of natural, innovative products and try to source as much local and Canadian made product as we can. We strongly believe in supporting our local economies and giving back to our community. We have a knowledgeable staff that can help you with everything from deciding what pet food is right for you, to what color halter would look best on your new horse! So if there is anything that you require to keep your best friend happy, you have come to the right place.
