At Dogswell, we’re on a mission to make pets as happy and healthy as they make us. That means making high-quality, delicious food and treats that they love today, with proactive benefits that keep them running, jumping and playing for years to come.

We are committed to making high quality food and treats that are always:

  • Great Tasting
  • Fortified with added vitamins, minerals or supplements that provide functional health benefits
  • Made with simple, real food ingredients
  • Made using preservatives from natural or mineral sources
  • Free of any corn, wheat, soy, sugar, or artificial flavors


Dogswell was founded in 2004 by Marco Giannini, who grew up with a German shepherd named Emily that developed hip dysplasia. The unpleasant experience of giving her pills helped Marco realize there was an opportunity to add functional benefits right into pet treats —to produce treats that taste good and do good. And thus, Dogswell was born. Our best selling Happy Hips Jerky revolutionized the treats market by making the first Chicken Breast Jerky treat fortified with Glucosamine and Chondroitin for hip and joint health. Since then, we’ve expanded from being a dog treats company to a complete pet nutrition company, while still adding health-promoting ingredients to every product along the way.
