Like so many other pet owners, Brett Podolsky was feeding his dog dry food from a bag, believing it was what dogs were supposed to eat. But his Rottweiler, Jada’s, severe and persistent digestive issues sent him on a journey through a maze of pet food products and marketing promises that led nowhere—until a vet recommended he try making simple, fresh food.

That revelation about what healthy dog food actually is marked the start of Jada’s good health, the start of a company, and the start of a new chapter for the pet food industry. After seeing the impact of real food on his dog, and discovering the alarming reality behind pet food marketing, Brett and partner Jonathan Regev launched The Farmer’s Dog—the company they wished existed for their own dogs.

Using decades of pet nutrition research, and working with top vet nutritionists, they created fresh, human-grade food that’s nutritionally complete and balanced for dogs, and delivered to people in precisely portioned packs. Millions of meals later, the journey to help all dogs live longer and healthier lives continues. See The Farmer’s Dog founders’ story above—and start your own fresh-food journey at The Farmer’s Dog.
