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!

The CANIDAE Farms Initiative

Cultivating New Ways To Do Pet Food Better

CANIDAE® is getting more involved in the growing of some of the ingredients that we use in our pet foods. We’re partnering with US farmers to implement integrated farming methods and grow crops like peas, millet, and milo, as well as a variety of vegetables and herbs—instead of typical mass market crops like wheat, corn and soy. We want to help farmers find more ways to partner with nature rather than work against it. Take a tour of one our partner farms and learn more about our initiative here!
