The Story of Mountain Dog Chews

family.jpgOne really couldn't convey even partially the essence of Mountain Dog Chews without first sharing with you a bit of background about myself. I grew up in a principled, tight-knit family in the mountains. As a young sportsman, I revered the great outdoors, and was ingrained with a respect for outdoor pursuits as well as a love of country. Some of my fondest memories were formed on trout streams, hunting stands and blinds and back-country trails in the company of family, friends and my Labrador Retriever.

I went on to proudly graduate one of the top ten universities in America, before pursuing my law degree and an MBA, and then finding myself in the good fortune of practicing Private Equity law with one of the largest law firms in America. Nearing my 35th birthday, and with a daughter and son of my own, it occurred to me, however, that those passions of my yesteryears were being pursued fewer and further between. And so, after taking a good, hard look at Life – as it should be lived – and those certain truths which I, indeed, hold to be self-evident, I embarked, together with my wife upon a leap of faith. ...One driven solely by personal passions and values, albeit with two lesser elements of social experimentation: 1. To prove true the timeless adage harkened by many of our grandparents, “...Follow your heart and do that which you love, and 'everything else' will resolve in due course....”; and 2. To prove and stand as witness that the “American dream” is obtainable and alive and well.

And, while, yes, I maintain under my own shingle a selective legal practice, I have been Blessed with the opportunity to cultivate Mountain Dog, along with our other creative ventures, into something much larger and more impactful than the sum of its parts. We are a family-run start-up working hard to establish an ultra-premium, authentic and distinctive brand compelling to dog-lovers who seek the BEST unique all-natural, single-ingredient, holistic and sustainable chews and treats and products, while also resonating specifically with folks who, like myself, are active in outdoors recreation or simply appreciate moments in the outdoors (whether on a city park trail or in a frosty duck blind) shared with our dogs. Our foray into antler dog chews was a natural one, as we are able to offer an American made product that meets our high standards and also epitomizes all that we stand for. Our antler chews are bar-none among the highest quality, hand-selected chews you will find, originating from top-grade naturally-shed antlers collected by hand and on hoof each year, and meticulously cut, sanded and crafted into nature's perfect, uber-eco-friendly, premium dog chew.

Mountain Dog Chews is defined by our commitment to uncompromising quality and service, respect for and stewardship of the American outdoors and its wildlife resources, and to fostering moments of connection between individuals and their wonderful and selfless four-legged canine companions.

Whether in field or stream or street, those bonds, we believe, cross all physical geographies from Anchorage to Key Largo and all points between, are shared among all ages, physical conditions and Life circumstances, and simply manifest a timeless and wholesome goodness that we at Mountain Dog Chews are committed to furthering.

So, friends... Always get up, get out and go for it, and let's create something meaningful!
