Conversations with the TukkaMate Team

Today we’d like to introduce you to TukkaMate Dog. Them and their team share their story with us below.

Please kick things off for us with some background on the story.
TukkaMate is a holistic dog food company based in Los Angeles. We cater to all dogs and dog owners who want to feed their fur babies the best possible food.

TukkaMate started because of a need. One of the founder’s dogs was suffering with terrible skin and health issues for years. It broke her heart to see him in pain and discomfort. She wanted to help him but didn’t have a solution. Within 2wks of him solely on TukkaMate his skin started clearing up and his health improved significantly. Now he is full of energy and happy all day long. TukkaMate was designed with a Holistic Veterinarian and a chef. We were in R&D for 6mths before we went to public and we are still only less than 1yr old to all your doggy owners based in Los Angeles. We keep production local and currently service the greater Los Angeles area.

We are excited to announce we’ve helped 100’s of dogs become healthier, happier and gain more energy on TukkaMate.

In case you were wondering: Tukka sounds like “Tucka” and is the Australian word for food. So it’s food for your mate.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
With TukkaMate, the biggest challenge was refining this recipe and making it perfectly balanced for all dogs. It had to have the best ingredients and nutrients, including pure meats, vegetables, omega’s 3’s, vitamins and we didn’t want anything processed or artificial.

We also wanted to source locally, making sure we have a low carbon footprint and are eco-friendly. Right down to our packaging and how we deliver was important to us. We have re-usable delivery and food bags, not extra waste and delivery in an electric vehicle.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
We specialize in holistic dog food that is as pure as it can get! Located in Los Angeles area and serving our community of dog owners with 100% human-grade. We take pride in our recipes, being local, eco-friendly and doing the best we can do for our furry friends.

Brooke Mason, our founder is committed to making our pets healthier happier and saving potential vet bills by giving your baby the purest food possible.

“Our fur babies are everything to us! They deserve it eat as good as they can, stay healthy, happier and live long wonderful lives. You are what you eat, so why is it different for them? Your pets should eat the cleanest food and get all the nutrients needed to live life to their full potential.” – Brooke Mason

Any big plans?
TukkaMate is expanding into local pet stores and we plan to keep growing without compromising on quality. It’s very important to us that we remain true to why we started. We can grow and be more available to more pets but at the same time, we believe in the quality.

We are excited for what’s in stall in 2023 for TukkaMate!
