From the Manufacturer
IT'S ALWAYS LOVE FIRST
We create only the highest quality products because we love keeping your pets healthy. Our products are formulated to include the optimal combination of complete, whole-food nutrition, and premium ingredients that you and your pets will love.
5 out of 5 dogs prefer real meat, which is why real meat is the ﬁrst ingredient in our food. But knowing what to put in as important as knowing what to leave out — so we never use any meat by-product meals. Ever! NAKED ESSENTIALS is 30% protein, giving dogs the energy and endurance they need to for their Tuesday afternoon Zumba class. Get it, Mildred!
Sorry, grains, you’re not invited to this party. Grain-free food is great because it most closely mimics a dog's ancestral diet. We left out common allergens like corn, wheat, rice, soy, and ﬁllers like rice and white potatoes and instead added nutrient-rich, easy-to-digest carbs like lentils, garbanzo beans and sweet potatoes. Fido’s gonna love it.
SKIN + COAT
Hello, darlings, I am ready for my close-up! Omegas 3 + 6 from superfood ingredients like flaxseeds & fish oils can help enhance a soft coat and encourage healthy skin. Pretty neat, right? Suddenly, we’re just a little studio lighting and a couple of oscillating fans away from a fashion shoot.
Tummy aches are a total bummer and poor digestion can lead to bad breath, rumbling tummies, loose stools, or gas. Our kibble has Happy Tummeez prebiotics + probiotics to help keep your dog feeling just right. We’ll trade in some tummy troubles for tummy rubs, pls.

About the Startup
Describe your product in 3 words.
Holistic, Love, Grain Free
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
It all starts with a name. We know ours is unconventional. We also know it’s the name of a pretty rad album by the Avett Brothers (lighters up, y’all!). But for us, our name symbolizes the incredible bond between a human and a pet. That love and allegiance is a two way street with purrs and wags in between. Pets give us undying devotion, and we give pets the best food, the best love, and the best goofy Halloween costumes.
What makes your product special?
We’re all about that bond, and we love being a part of it. With the help of holistic veterinarians, our grain free food and treats are formulated to include complete, whole-food nutrition that you and your pets will love. Wholesome? Oh yeah. Premium ingredients? You bet. We’re here for you and your furry friend forever and ever. Every one of our products has been formulated to include the optimal combination of complete, whole-food nutrition, freshness, and premium ingredients your pets will wag over. We create only the highest quality products because we LOVE keeping your pets healthy.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
“I and love and you” is a young company, but we’re starting off on the right foot. Paw. Foot? Foot-paw? Sure. The steps we’ve taken are just the start of our trip as we wind our way along the path of sustainability. And for us, green living and being kind to the planet isn’t a destination. It’s a journey. Our corporate HQ in Boulder, CO is 100% wind powered, employees use alternative transportation to get to work, we purchase carbon offsets for all of our travel and we are founding members of the Pet Industry Sustainability Coalition.
