Puppernut LLC was founded in 2018 with the vision of enabling pet owners to include their pets in all their favorite activities. Since then, we've been designing and manufacturing high-quality, durable products that support this vision.
What does "Puppernut" mean?
The brand name "Puppernut" is named after our founder's English Springer Spaniel, Charles Barkley, who also goes by Puppernut Squash. It is, of course, not a real word, and has no particular meaning.
Ownership: woman-owned, privately held LLC
All products are made in the USA
Year founded: 2018
Location: Ohio, USA
Puppernut's mission is simple: to make the world more pet-friendly.
You've seen this goal adapted as a tagline all over our website and marketing materials, because we keep our mission at the center of every product we design, and every major decision we make.
What does it mean to make the world more pet-friendly?
The world today is certainly more pet-friendly than it was 50 or 100 years ago. Many restaurants offer dog-friendly patios, dog salons and boutique shops are popping up left and right, and even major hotel chains are offering pet-friendly rooms. Still, owning a pet is a huge responsibility, and it can be quite stressful to juggle being a good pet owner with having a career and personal life. Having the right products and knowledge can make it so much easier to include our pets in all our favorite activities, minimizing the need for sacrifice.
Dogs do so much for us - they lift our spirits, inspire adventure, and show us the purest form of love. At Puppernut, we see it as our responsibility to give back to the canine community, helping to provide better lives to dogs in need.
Each month, we donate a percentage of our profits to a charity organization whose mission aligns with our own. If you have a recommendation for a charity or organization that we should be donating to, dog-related or not, please let us know by filling out our contact form.
Puppernut is currently structured as an LLC, but with a long-term vision of incorporating as a B-corp. This means the company will continue its legacy of sustainability and community involvement as we grow and scale, ensuring that we do not lose touch with our founder's vision of making the world more pet-friendly.
