The Pawstruck Origin Story

Kyle & MaliHi, my name is Kyle and I’m the founder and CEO of Pawstruck.com. If you have a moment, I’d like to share with you the story of how and why I created this business.

I’ve been a passionate dog owner my entire life. My first dog, Mali, and I were inseparable growing up, and I now share that same bond with my current dog, Tyson.

A few years back when Tyson was a puppy, I visited a local pet store to find him some dog treats. My plan was to find him some tasty rewards to incentivize his progress in his potty training. I needed all the help I could get because my carpet was taking a beating! Tyson didn’t seem too picky when it came to the dog treats, but I took a closer look at the various options.

After making my way down the aisle, I noticed a trend. Everything I picked up was made with artificial ingredients. Words on the ingredient lists seemed like gibberish because of all of the complex scientific jargon (hydrogenated starch hydrolysate, ascorbyl palmitate, glucosamine hydrochloride…huh???).

So I started searching the Internet in the hopes of finding dog treats and dog chews that were healthy, all natural, and reasonably priced. I wanted simple ingredients with no artificial additives or preservatives. After some serious research, I came to the conclusion that what I was looking for wasn’t available. My options were to spend an unreasonable amount of money on the handful of natural dog treats that were being sold or resort to giving Tyson treats of subpar quality.

Through that frustration came my “aha” moment and Pawstruck.com was born. I decided to leave my career in engineering for something I was passionate about—supplying other responsible pet owners high quality and reasonably priced dog products!

My dream has since become a reality. I have been lucky enough to surround myself with a fantastic team who share the same exact goals and philosophies that led me to this business in the first place. With the help of our dogs, we are able to produce and sell a wide variety of healthy dog products—all of which we proudly stand behind.

It didn’t take long for all of you pet owners out there to catch on! We are so grateful for those of you—both canines and humans—who have supported our philosophies and business. If you made it this far in this long letter, you probably understand how committed we are to our cause. Because of that, we hope you’ll consider shopping with us, if you haven't already!

Sincerely,

Signature

A Message From Our Founder

Hi, I'm Kyle, founder of Pawstruck. When my dog, Tyson, was a puppy, I noticed a disturbing trend when buying him treats from pet stores. The ingredient lists were gibberish. Artificial ingredients were in everything, and the scientific jargon was overwhelming. Butylated hydroxytoluene, ascorbyl palmitate, ethoxyquin…huh???

I scoured the Internet to find reasonably priced, natural treats and chews, but they weren't available. That frustration became my inspiration for creating Pawstruck.

Now Tyson and I provide pets across the USA with healthy, high-quality, and affordable treats, chews, food and more! I'm so grateful for the canines, felines, and humans who support our philosophies and business. If you haven't already, I hope you'll shop with us and join the Pawstruck Pack!

What People Are Saying About Pawstruck...

- Adison in Newport Beach, CA

"You guys are the BEST! Bully Sticks, Cow Ears, & Bones are my Australian Shepherd's absolute favorite, but they're so darn pricey in stores. Yours are way cheaper, longer lasting, and the quality is way better than what I've seen. I'll be a lifelong customer. My pup says thank you!"

"Received your package. Thanks for the variety of products! I'm very impressed with their obvious quality. We have a rescue beagle who spent the 1st year of her life in a shelter and was adopted by an abusive family. We are working on her, she did seem to like the hoof I gave her!"

"I appreciate the care you all have put into making high quality bully sticks. Peter and I feel safe to let Oliver enjoy your bully sticks! Thanks so much! Oliver is still loving all the goodies you sent him. He just finished the circle bully stick ten minutes ago and he is so happy."

"I'm raising four big dogs with strong chew drives. I've found the best prices on bully sticks and other all-natural chews on Pawstruck.com. The braided bully sticks are insane. I swear my dogs' eyes doubled in size when they saw them for the first time. Give 'em a try!"
