Once upon a time…
back in the early 90s, there was a picky pooch named Chauncy. Chauncy was a dachshund who was a fussy eater. He belonged to the family of Pampered Pet Treats, Inc. founder and CEO, Nancy Anne Volin.
Poor Chauncy … he was a good boy and he deserved just as much love and pampering as any dog, but he had a sensitive tummy. He wouldn’t even touch the typical brand-name dog biscuits Nancy Anne and her mom offered him.
So, Nancy Anne went to work. In her kitchen, she started whipping up some secret-recipe dog cookies of her own. After one bite, Chauncy was sold and so were a bunch of other dogs in the neighborhood.
The dogs seemed to be saying,
“Two paws up for Nancy Anne’s pet treats!”
When she founded Pampered Pet Treats, Inc., in March 1994, Nancy Anne knew she was on to something big. At the time, the availability of all-natural pet treats was sparse, but the demand was growing.
Nancy Anne had found her niche. Founder, Nancy Anne, a trained chef, began working with veterinarians and nutritionists to create a line of tasty, healthy, wholesome dog treats. Knowing many pets have the same digestive and health issues as humans, she created treats that even dogs with sensitive stomachs could enjoy.
You’re welcome, Chauncy…
– Nancy Anne
It’s no surprise that Nancy Anne found success so quickly. After going back to college as an adult and graduating from the University of Saint Thomas in St. Paul, Minn., with a major in communications and a minor in entrepreneurship, Nancy was awarded an “Entrepreneur of the Year” award in 1994 by the University.
In 2014 Pampered Pet Treats, Inc. was nominated by Costco and awarded “Supplier of the Year for Supplier Excellence Women Business Enterprise”.
In December 2022, Nancy & Pampered Pets USA were covered in a cover story as a small business highlight in the December 2022 edition Costco Connection article.
The Pampered Pets USA Vision
Pampered Pet Treats, Inc. is a pet-treat-company headquartered in San Diego, California. The company is dedicated to providing premium pet snacks that combine delectable flavors with optimal nutrition … guaranteed to keep tails wagging for more – with irresistible flavors like Chicken Pot Pie, Cheddar Cheese & Bacon, Peanut Butter Flavor, and so many more!
Your pets provide an endless amount of love and support every day, so it only makes sense to reward their loyalty by giving them high-quality, American-made, oven-baked treats that show you really know how to pamper your pet. Your Best Friend Deserves the Best Treats! Pet Treats, Inc., not only set out to please pet palates, but it was founded on the need for healthier dog treats.
The tide is shifting in pet-product demand. More and more pet owners are catching on to the fact that traditional pet treats contain ingredients that can be harmful to their pets.
Concerns about overseas food by-products, allergens, and unhealthy additives in pet treats are growing. Many dog treats contain corn, wheat, soy, and other fillers, most of which can cause harsh allergic reactions including itching, ear infections, and upset stomachs.
So, Nancy Anne decided to make a fresh start in developing her delicious, nutritious dog treats. Nancy Anne worked with veterinarians, nutritionists, and bakers to take pet treats to a whole, new level. She developed recipes that start with the same high-quality ingredients you use for your family and are known to contribute to the overall health of dogs … ingredients such as oatmeal, garbanzo bean flour, sweet potatoes, applesauce, honey, flaxseed, eggs, cheese, pumpkin, and real peanut butter.
The response over the past 20 years has been overwhelming. Pampered Pet Treats USA is dedicated to providing premium pet treats that combine delectable flavors with optimal nutrition.
