comfortable, convenient and affordable. As pet owners ourselves, all our

all animals deserve a healthy, happy and safe life. — This is our journey from
concerned pet parents to industry leaders on herbal products for our furry
Being an Animal lover and especially a Dog lover, seeing an animal happy,
comfortable and content has always given me tremendous joy and relief. But
never did I realize, that this feeling of compassion could turn into a business one
It all began with a problem…
A problem that most dog and cat parents can relate to - TICKS & FLEAS
My pet dog ‘Teddy Singh’ was suffering from the very common problem of
Ticks and Fleas. Given the hot and humid weather of Mumbai city, ticks and
fleas can be almost impossible to get rid off. Especially without exposing your
pet’s fur and skin to harsh chemical treatments.
Just like any other Pet Parent, I tried all the pet products available in the market
to get rid of teddy’s tick problem, but to my surprise nothing helped. Being the
nature lover I am, I thought why not try something I would to solve my personal
grooming problems – use NATURAL INGREDIENTS found in our kitchen
and garden. Being a fan of traditional Indian home remedies - Neem has been a
constant in my life for a lot of problems and I knew what it was capable of. So I
decided to try it on Teddy as well. Having read about its pesticidal and
insecticidal properties I did believe it could do wonders with the problem we
(teddy and I) were facing.
So I then decided to get Neem Leaves from my garden, boiled them in a pot of
water, once these leaves unlocked all their beneficial/medicinal properties in the
water, I let the water cool down and then bathe teddy with this magical water
and Voila – I saw wonders. The only glitch – the whole process took me around
4 hours which I know not all pet parents would be willing to dedicate for a
weekly bath of their pets.
And from thereon, a new chapter of consistent research to resolve pet problems
using our traditional Indian Natural/Ayurveda remedies started in my life. I
named this new chapter of my life as – DOGZ & DUDEZ. This is how my
startup came into existence and…
We launched our star product - Dogz & Dudez Neem Shampoo for fighting
Ticks & Fleas.
As longstanding proponents of Ayurvedic remedies, We at Dogz and Dudez
wanted to find an all natural solution to replace potentially harmful fur-care
products. So we teamed up with local veterinary institutes to develop a safer
solution for tick and flea problems. The result was a shampoo both affordable
and easy to use for pet parents on a daily basis.
The response we received for this product from dog and cat owners blew us
away. We received messages from people telling how happy their furry buddy
was after getting rid of their itchy problem. It proved to us how much pet
parents are searching for natural remedies for their four-legged companions.
The Amazing response and reviews from our customers gave us the validation
and confidence that we are moving in the right direction.
We at Dogz & Dudez are constantly trying to bridge gaps like these in the
market, where the problem persists despite of a number of products being
available to solve these everyday problems – our only aim is to provide the right
solution for such problems without bothering to go to the Vet.
We care more about pets than profits
Dogz & Dudez was founded to serve Pets, Pet Parents and our Planet. We have
stayed true to that commitment when we launched India’s first biodegradable
poop bags. Cleaning up after one’s Dog’s poop is not practiced in our country.
Dog waste is very high in nitrogen and phosphorus, and full of diseases causing
bacteria and parasites. These bacteria and parasites are harmful to humans and
spreads diseases to other dogs and, therefore, can be harmful for yourself, pets
and other humans residing in the vicinity. The practice of leaving the pet poop
unattended by pet parents, also irks others who do not own dogs and are hence
against people having pets. We did not want our furry companions to be a
problem for others or not to be a part of our lives.
So to create awareness about environmentally sensitive ways to clean after your
dog, we sold our biodegradable bags cost-to-cost. Instead of earning a profit, we
made the eco-friendly option cheaper than the overpriced plastic bags sold in
retail stores. Like all our products, our poop bags remains highly competitively
priced to encourage the eco-friendly choice.
