Story

True To Our Roots

Our
Journey

We’re Just Getting Started

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!

CANIDAE Farms

Cultivating New Ways To Do Pet Food Better

At CANIDAE®, innovation is what our brand is built on. Thinking of new ways to do better for pets and their people has inspired us since we started our journey back in 1996. That inspiration led us to CANIDAE® Farms. Getting involved in the growing of some ingredients we use in our pet foods is just another small step forward on our journey. Our long-term goal is to use only ingredients we’re actively involved in growing. It’s an ambitious endeavor, but we’re excited about the future and where our journey might take us. Just as we have since the beginning, we’ll keep finding new ways to do better for pets and their people. Learn More.
