Women-Founded Brands To Support All Year Long

Women-Founded Brands To Support All Year Long

As a women-founded and led pet brand, we are always on the lookout to support other like minded brands and founders in the space. The majority of the pet and dog food industry is owned by large conglomerates and parent companies with bigger agendas, and, oftentimes, lackluster ingredients.

By amplifying the voices of our fellow women-founders, and shopping women-founded, we can ensure that our pets receive products made with pure love, and without ulterior motives. We are honored to be among so many wonderful founders in this incredibly rewarding space and can’t wait to continue reaching toward that glass ceiling.

Here are just a few of our (many) favorite women-founded dog brands!
