About us

Our Green Gruff story started with a Black Lab named Nala. Nala is a shy yet playful pup who is loved by her owner Jon and his family. As Nala grew older, her legs and hips began to shake on walks and during her favorite game, fetch. Nala also experienced dry, itchy skin and nervousness from Jon's baby crying. Just like all caring dog owners, it was hard for Nala's owner see her struggle while doing the things she once loved to do. So, with help from some of the leading veterinarians and scientists in the industry, Jon developed Green Gruff. Green Gruff can give dogs the solutions and love they need and deserve - inside and out.

Green Gruff About Us

All Green Gruff Supplements have been developed to target and support some of the major issues all dogs will experience in their lifetimes. From anxiety-related issues, to dry and itchy skin, digestion problems, joint pain, and more. Green Gruff supplements, given daily, can provide aid and proactive support for all of these issues. We didn't just turn supplements that are designed for humans into dog supplements; we started from scratch, researching the best combination of ingredients for our dog chews.

We care so much about our dogs, and we know you do too. So, we're on a mission to bring your pets the best supplements - developed with our dogs' needs in mind. We consulted the best veterinarians and doctors available to develop a unique and sustainable list of ingredients that provide your pet with the best support. Support that can aid your dog in living a long, happy, and healthy life.

Starting with dogs. The best ingredients. The best formulas. The best manufacturing process. The best advisors. All for your dogs' happy and healthy life. That's Green Gruff.
