Our Story

Pet Love to Pet Treats

In 2016, co-founder Nicole Trowe cared for her friend’s dog, Willie. Willie developed cancer and was visibly in a lot of pain. As each day passed, his energy and vibrant personality faded. 

Nicole began adding a little hemp extract to Willie’s food each day. Soon after, he showed signs of relief and renewed energy, even in the face of his terminal illness.

A Family Business

Transparency From Farm-to-Floor

Several years later, the Trowe sisters’ stay true to the foundation of their first kitchen-made treats. They work to find the right ingredients, with farms and suppliers they can trust. Their partners include Ventura Seed Company and the Rodale Institute, guaranteeing that every K9CK treat contains 100% organic full-spectrum hemp oil made through certified organic and regenerative farming processes. Alongside their Father, co-founder of Ventura Seed Company, they ensure their partner farms’ commitment to sustainable and responsible practices for both humans and planet. 

K9CK thoroughly tests each product and publishes documentation regularly, staying transparent and keeping customers informed of dosages. All hemp oil is traceable back to the row of plants where it comes from. 

In addition to the human-grade, full-spectrum hemp oil, each recipe prioritizes organic and all-natural ingredients based on the original recipes first tested in Emily’s home kitchen. Every recipe uses minimal ingredients, carefully selected for optimal health benefits. K9CK products empower customers to put their furry companion’s health first. They are made with love, from farm to floor.
