The Natural Dog Company is a distributor of natural dog treats and chews. We primarily work with independent pet retailers and our products can be found in over 3000 pet supply stores across the country.
In 2009, Dan and his wife, Jen, adopted Tuesday, a 5-month old Golden Retriever mixed breed, from an animal shelter in McMinnville, OR.
Dan and Jen were very excited to adopted their first dog together as newlyweds. Their older dog, Stella, was a perfect angel. You could leave Stella alone with the car with an unwrapped Chipotle burrito, and when you returned, the burrito would be completely untouched.
When Dan and Jen brought Tuesday home for the first time, they were a little stunned. Tuesday was very, very rambunctious. She had seemingly endless energy. And the chewing! Tuesday never stopped chewing. Whether it was shoes, furniture, or the drywall - Tuesday always seemed to have something in her mouth. Dan and Jen quickly realized that chewing was a natural behavior for dogs. Instead of punishing Tuesday, they decided to find something appropriate for her to chew. Determined to seek a solution, Dan and Jen started researching various products on the market.
Dan and Jen wanted to offer Tuesday something that was healthy, natural, and made with simple ingredients. When they couldn't find anything suitable at their local pet supply store or online, Dan decided to start The Natural Dog Company.
Dan explains, "We started The Natural Dog Company in 2009 because we love our dogs and we care about the treats we give them. We know what it means to want the best for your dog and that’s why we only sell the natural products we stand behind with our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
We’re a small, family-run company located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Loveland, Colorado. Like many passionate dog owners, our dogs run our lives. From planning weekend trips to the mountains where the dogs can run free, to incorporating visits to new dog parks whenever we venture around town, our dogs are considered in each decision we make."
Today, Tuesday is a little older now, and much more mellow. She comes to the office with Dan every single day and enjoys napping, begging for food in the break room, and testing out all of our new treats and chews.
