About Zuke’s Dog Treats

Fuel the adventure with Zuke’s high quality dog treats.

It all started with a guy named Patrick and his dog named Zuke. . .

Back in 1995, our founder, Patrick, was on a hike with his Chocolate Lab, Zuke, when he shared his energy bar with him to refuel so they could finish their trek. At that moment, he realized our dogs are just like us — they need healthy treats to keep them going, too. So he created Zuke’s treats, nutrient-rich and made with the Earth’s best ingredients.

Zuke’s was founded in Durango, Colorado and still remains dedicated to creating healthy dog treats. Join us on the journey from park to peak.

Our Philosophy

We believe that what’s good for humans is good for pets. And our dogs have taught us that when you get healthier, you feel happier. Living that healthy life together is what keeps us going. From a visit to the dog park, to a stroll around the block, to a hike in the mountains, we believe “You can find adventure anywhere.”

Our Nutrition

Our nutritional philosophy in treats is rooted in the belief that nature gives our dogs everything they need to keep going. Purposeful ingredients like high-protein meats, vegetables and fruits, and essential vitamins and nutrients for a long, healthy and active life. And we never use corn, wheat, soy or artificial preservatives, colors or flavors. We believe our four-legged companions deserve the very best we (and nature) can give them to fuel every adventure.
