The story of Locatis | Washington founded and manufactured

Founded in 1990 by Leonard Locatis, we pride ourselves in only offering our product to independently owned pet, equine, and farm stores.  

We believe in local businesses because we are one ourselves.  

Leonard founded Locatis after a storied career in manufacturing.  He came from a engineering family, starting his career crafting leather English equestrian riding saddles.  Leonard had an eye for streamlining manufacturing processes and quickly moved up, running the manufacturing processes for a number of companies.  After moving to Washington, Leonard began working for a leather pet products company where he had many successes designing machines and manufacturing processes helping the company achieve great success.  After leaving that company Leonard wanted to use his knowledge and skills to grow his own company.  Thus began Locatis. 

Locatis has been a family operation from the beginning.  Leonard’s children helped run the company through the years and now the new owners Eric and Rebecca are continuing the tradition of a family run, locally owned company. 

Our products are handmade in Longview Washington.  We use top quality materials made in the USA whenever possible.

We are happy to offer Dog, Cat, Equine, and Livestock products including Collars, Leashes, Harness, Training and Grooming Aids, Halters, and Leads.
