Meet the Team


Our journey into the natural pet food industry began when our South African Mastiff (Boerboel) Ramesses exhibited signs of food allergies. Greg is a trained chef by profession, working in the culinary and hospitality industries for more than 30 years. Nikki is a professional in the clinical research industry. As lifelong avid dog lovers, we decided to try making our dog food with natural ingredients that we would use to feed our own family.

We noticed an instant change in Ramesses, less itching, less scratching, less digestive issues, and best of all—less GAS! Additionally, our senior chihuahua, Diego, suffered from problems maintaining a healthy weight and occasional digestive issues. With the benefits, our dogs have demonstrated, and our newly created natural, nutritionally-wholesome dog food recipes, We decided to share our natural dog food with the rest of the dog lovers in the surrounding Austin area.

Our family has resided in the Austin area since 2007, and we have seen first-hand how much Austinites love their dogs. With that knowledge and the passion for sharing the benefits, our dogs have experienced. In 2021 both of our boys crossed over rainbow bridge. However, we will honor them by continuing their legacy, Your Pets' Chef.
