The Stonyfield crew is full of proud doggie Moms and Dads, and as good puppy parents, we love to give (hu)man’s best friend tasty treats they love and we can feel good about.
Meet our new friend Jody Rodgers, CEO and founder of yöghund. yöghund is a nutritional ‘digestive friendly’ premium organic frozen yogurt with probiotics made especially for dogs which you’ll now find through our myStonyfield Rewards Program. (Sidenote: These guys may have the best tagline ever
– “yoghurt voor hunds“. Dat is geweldig!)
So, let us introduce you to one of our favorite myStonyfield Rewards partners and their line of organic frozen yogurt for the canine variety.
How did your company get started, Jody?
The concept of yöghund originated at The Barking Dog, Ltd., as a fun, innovative, and nutritional treat for the four legged guests that we cared for each day. There are often 100’s of dogs in our care at The Barking Dog facilities. Over the course of 20 years in the pet care business, The Barking Dog, Ltd. came to realize that loving pet owners were truly scrambling to find healthy treats for their pets that would also taste yummy! Realizing that the market was saturated with an array of fabricated dry treats and bones, and taking into account the fact that many dogs suffer from food allergies and intolerances, the thought of a nutritional ‘digestive friendly’ premium frozen yogurt which would be fun to lick, was born!
What is your company’s mission/philosophy?
yöghund’s mission is to seek to provide pet owners with wholesome, organic and natural functional treats, to help enhance overall pet health and well being, while avoiding unnecessary calories, fats, additives and preservatives. yöghund strives to offer innovative pet products at a good value, using environmentally sound packaging wherever possible; and to conduct business in a manner that is ethical and fair to its employees, investors, partners, customers and business associates, so all may benefit from our efforts.
Why are you excited about being a partner in the myStonyfield Rewards program?
Stonyfield has a very similar mission in the human realm. Their consumers understand the goodness of quality yogurt products and appreciate the benefits a healthy diet can offer. It is a natural fit for us, and we are thrilled be participating in this program.
Tell us the one thing your company is working on right now that you are really excited about.
yöghund is busy developing new products to broaden our offerings in functional dog treats. So keep your eyes peeled for new and exciting products from yöghund in the future!
