Brand Designer

| Greater NYC Area

The Farmer’s Dog is revolutionizing the pet food industry. In an industry with no regulations, constant recalls, and rampant misleading advertising, The Farmer’s Dog is here to be the hero brand that all pet parents have been waiting for. After decades of big brands only innovating on marketing and making zero improvements to the quality of their food, we decided to make a change. As the first ever health focused innovation in the pet food industry, The Farmer’s Dog is utilizing its proprietary technology to create the healthiest food for dogs by delivering freshly-made human-grade food to our customers within days of cooking. Our meal plans are vet-developed, personalized, and pre-portioned specifically for each dog.

We launched after our co-founder’s battle to cure his dog’s stomach issues illustrated the power of fresh food. After testing every pet food on the market without success, Brett resorted to a fresh, home-cooked diet at his vet’s recommendation. The results were staggering — Jada was cured. Once he realized how poor the state of commercial pet food was, he team up with Jonathan to develop a fresh alternative and create the product they wished existed for their own dogs (and dogs everywhere).

Utilizing smart technology and an innovative business model, we are bringing peace of mind to our customers, health to their companions, and fundamentally changing the way people think about feeding their pets.

Our investors have also backed companies like Dollar Shave Club, Warby Parker, Glossier, Casper, and Sweetgreen. We expect only “dream job” applicants, please. #mustlovedogs
