Redpaw was founded in 1992 by Eric, a biochemist, and an avid musher. Eric raised hundreds of huskies at his kennel and was keenly aware of what he fed each dog, and the output they produced. With one spoken word, Eric could call all dogs into action. Calm them. Inspire them. Each dog gave their love and performance back to him—so he wanted to give his all to them in return. But Eric got frustrated watching his dogs work their tails off, yet not get the nutritional support they needed to do what they loved the next day again. So he put his scientist hat on and set to work to design the perfect, healthy dog food.
