About Us

Our Promise

Petmate is truly a special place. Filled with engaging, passionate, and creative people, we promise to provide fun, trusted, quality products that fill a specific need and enhance the lives of pets and their families. Knowing that pets are every bit as much a part of the family, we are constantly working – not just on creating products – but more importantly on how we can improve all pets’ quality of life.

Our Story

In 1959, Ben Doskocil set his mind to providing the means for safe pet transportation, resulting in the first dog kennel approved for air travel. Over 60 years later that same commitment to doing what’s best for pets, and pet parents, remain at the heart of all that we do. With over 17 brands, our focus now, and in the future, will be leveraging our knowledge and expertise to create safe, enjoyable, reliable products for all pets to enjoy.

Consumer Insights Driven

Through both well-researched product development and strategic acquisition, Petmate has grown substantially over the years into a leader in the Pet Supplies industry.

As an insight-driven leader in the Pet Industry, monitoring market dynamics and exploring consumer trends are the lifeblood of our decisions made.

While everything that we observe or learn is factored into the decision-making process surrounding the products we make, sharing that insight is what makes us collectively better and deliver the best possible experience for our retail partners, pets, and pet parents.

Our People

Expertise doesn’t happen overnight. Passion, Engagement, Teamwork, Accountability, and Innovation are but a few of the words to describe the core of who Petmate is.
