Created for the Love of Pups & Planet
When we couldn't find a natural and sustainable snack for Wren, we made Chippin.
We believe that what our dogs eat can be healthful, fun and - with the right ingredients - a force for change. With Chippin, we've created access to nutrient-rich food that doesn't come with the high environmental cost.
Wren: the cricket connoisseur
From cricket farm to snacks for dogs
We started Chippin while in grad school at the University of Pennsylvania. Realizing the nutrition and sustainability benefits of crickets, Haley spent months researching and building a small scale vertical cricket farm.
In the process of learning about the potential for insects for an alternative to traditional meat options, she realized her Goldendoodle Wren loves eating them!
From there, veterinarians and nutritionists confirmed Wren indeed had a taste for a powerfully nutritious protein from crickets, and Chippin the team started snack development. Laura joined the team, bringing a mutual love of dogs and expertise in branding and design.
With a focus on palate pleasing ingredients and superior snack design, together we created all natural Chippin cricket snacks for Wren and her dog friends too.
More than just food
Chip In with Chippin
Because there are 90M dogs in the USA, the food choices we make for them matter. An estimated 80% of water use goes to agriculture, and livestock and manure management are the leading cause of methane gas emissions.
To the extent that we can make small changes through the foods we choose--while doing good for our four legged family members--together we can all chip in and make a difference for our pups & planet.
