Our History

The history of Wellness® dates back more than 90 years, with the inception of Old Mother Hubbard® natural oven-baked dog biscuits. Upon its official establishment in 1926, Old Mother Hubbard began baking dog biscuits for distribution throughout the Northeast of the United States.

In the 1990’s, our dedicated team began working with a team of animal nutrition experts, veterinarians and scientists to develop a food that would revolutionize the pet food industry. The result was a wide range of products under the Wellness brand. Wellness recipes for dogs were introduced in 1997 making us pioneers in the development of natural pet food.

In 2007 we proudly introduced CORE. A grain free, protein focused natural nutrition. CORE is currently available in many countries and we feel the demand for grain free natural nutrition is growing everywhere, which is why we are constantly building out our global footprint.

Wellness CORE is part of the WellPet family of brands, which formed in 2009. WellPet is the largest independent, family owned natural pet food company in the US. We are known for quality & innovation and are committed to produce incredibly flavourful natural pet food with the ideal nutritional balance.

At Wellness CORE, we want to produce natural healthy nutrition you as a breeder can trust.
