Come along on a journey with us to a bison ranch in Wyoming, farms from all across America’s Heartland, and waterways of the Pacific Northwest. You’ll meet some of the folks who supply our ingredients, some who make our food or work behind the scenes, those who make sure you can find it in stores, and even some loyal customers. We’ll even take you to a special place in Brownwood, Texas that’s a very important part of the CANIDAE® story. The CANIDAE® Journey officially began in 1996. Back then, we knew we wanted to make pet food that would make a difference. Twenty years later, that’s exactly what we continue to do. CANIDAE® is pet food made by pet people—take a trip with us and see how it all happens!
True To Our Roots
From the first truckload of pet food we delivered from the back of our pick-up trucks, to the latest batch cooked up in our Ethos Pet Nutrition plant in Brownwood, Texas—our story is one we’re proud of. We started out as an independent, family-owned company— and we still are today. We’re excited to share our story with you. How we started out from humble beginnings. Our commitment to quality in our ingredients. And our absolute promise that what we say on the bag, is exactly what’s in the bag. Watch our story and find out more about CANIDAE® and our commitment to pets and their people. We’ve been making great pet food since 1996—for our pets and yours. And we’ll keep on doing it, one bag at a time.
One Bag At A Time
Our Ethos Pet Nutrition facility in Brownwood, Texas is a dream come true for us and a major chapter in our story—a story we’re very proud of. We built a state of the art facility that puts safety and integrity first and where we can continue the research and development of our pet food formulas. Our Ethos facility includes an on-site lab that not only tests the ingredients we use and tests and holds the foods we are making on a daily basis, but also works to come up with more exciting ways to make great pet food. Come meet the Ethos part of the CANIDAE® family and see what’s cooking!
