Pooch & Mutt was founded in 2007 by Guy Blaskey. Guy's family dog, Cookie was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at 3 months old and told that she would need a hip replacement by the time she was 3. Cookie was treated with a natural joint supplement for horses made by Guy's mum's company, Blue Chip Feed.
The product worked amazingly (Cookie never needed the hip replacement and led a full, active life for another 11 years), so Guy decided that he had to reformulate it and repackage it for dogs, and so Pooch & Mutt was born.
Guy wanted to get the benefits of natural supplements to more dogs, and when training for the London Marathon to raise money for Hearing Dogs, Guy became obsessed with nutrition and did a lot of running with his dog (and our company mascot) Pepper.
Working with some of the top nutritionists in the UK, Guy developed the Pooch & Mutt food range to not only cut out the junk of mass-produced pet foods, but to include positive nutrition such as supplements and nutraceuticals, to help dogs lead happy, healthy lives.
