Kobe the Pyr is an entrepreneurial Sydney-based Pyrenean Mountain Dog who created Kotes by Kobe out of his desire to help his fellow pups stay warm, by giving them the coat off his back! All products contain recycled dog fur donated by dogs who no longer need it. 

Made from a specially commissioned yarn, the Mally Knit Kote is the first of its kind in Australia, featuring a luxurious blend of Alaskan Malamute fur, merino and Corriedale wool, with a touch of nylon for durability. 

The knit fabric is sewn against a viscose lining for extra softness against your pup’s skin. 

Each Mally Knit Kote has multiple snap presses on the belt and neck, so you can pick the best fit for your pup’s body shape. 

Dog fur being up to 80% warmer than wool, not only are Kotes a sustainable product, they’ll keep your pup fashionably toasty throughout winter!



For each Mally Knit Kote purchased, Kotes by Kobe will donate $10 to Alaskan Malamute Rehoming Aid Australia, whose pups kindly donated fur for this range. 



To ensure your pooch stays warm this winter, Kobe is giving you the chance to win one of his creations!


* WIN 1 x Mally Knit Kote (valued at $150)

    WIN 1 of 4 Puppy Packs
    thanks to Aussie Dog Products !!!
    We're celebrating National Puppy Day this Friday 23rd March and it's a special day to celebrate the magic and unconditional love that puppies bring to our lives!

    To spoil your furry bundle of joy (and save some of your precious belongings), we teamed up with Aussie Dog Products for your chance to win some of their most popular toys. 

    The Aussie Dog Puppy Pack is a fantastic start point for your new best friend offering both interactive and alone play products. Interactive play products include a Catch Ball, a Get…It and a Ringathong. For alone play and to help take their minds off teething, you also get a Tucker Ball

    You can follow Aussie Dog Products on Facebook and @aussie_dog_products on Instagram.

    WIN 1 of 4 Puppy Packs, each containing:
    • 1 x Tucker Ball
    The Aussie Dog Tucker Ball is the tough yellow ball that keeps on giving. Place dry treats inside to provide hours of self entertainment for your best friend. As the ball rotates, it will randomly dispense the dry food. Even when empty, the rattle will continue to provide stimulation. The correct size will be based on your puppy's weight and jaw size.
    • 1 x Slapathong
    Originally called the Slapathong, the Aussie Dog Get… It is the perfect toy for interactive fetch games. Sticks splinter and cause injury to your dog’s teeth and gums so leave the sticks for the fire! The Get… It floats on water, is machine washable, constructed from durable fire hose material and, most importantly, will not cause any harm to your best friend. The small size is designed for small to medium dogs 5kg to 30kg.
    • 1 x Catch Ball Blue
    The Aussie Dog Catch Ball is great for interactive fetch games with your new puppy. Unlike a tennis ball, the nodules make the ball easier for your best friend to pick up and, most importantly, prevents choking or blockage to airways. The blue ball floats on water and is softer than the red version. 
    • 1 x Ringathong
    The small Ringathong is another interactive toy which is exclusive to the Aussie Dog Puppy Packs.


    To Enter, simply Like/Share our post (23/03/18) and Comment on our Facebook or Instagram page: "why does your puppy need these pawsome toys AND select your Puppy Pack size (Small, Medium or Large)?"

    WIN 1 OF 3 x BOOK PRIZE PACKS
    FROM AFFIRM PRESS
    WORTH $75 EACH!!!
    Are you still missing a few Christmas presents for yourself or another dog lover in your life?

    We have teamed up with Australian publisher Affirm Press for your chance to win one of
     3 x Book Prize Packs featuring some of their most popular titles
    Each prize pack is worth $75 and includes:

    * It Happened Off the Leash, edited by Paddy O'Reilly
    Here you’ll find stories by dog lovers across Australia and New Zealand: from dogs who have saved lives or been saved, to dogs with extra-special talents or no talent at all, to dogs who do what they’re told and those who do exactly the opposite. The one constant – we adore them.

    * A Soldier's Best Friend - The Canine Heroes of Afghanistan by Stephen P. Stewart
    From the featureless plains of Helmand and Kandahar to military bases in Germany, army dog teams work day and night to keep us safe but, until recently, their courage and sacrifice has not been fully understood or appreciated. Award-winning journalist Stephen Paul Stewart employs in-depth interviews together with years of research and frontline reportage to tell their gripping and emotional stories for the first time. 


    * A Wombat in my Drawer by Ros Almond
    There’s Dusty the kangaroo who thinks he’s a dog, and Louie the emu who thinks she’s a cow. There’s Bazz the dog who likes beekeeping, and Pebble the joey who loves reality TV. From an opera-loving seal to a drunk rampaging pig to the happiest marsupial of them all, take a look at the weird, wild and adorable world of Australia’s animals.
