Gregori Lukas...

is undeniably the biggest animal lover on the planet.  From an early age he had what he refers to as his at home zoo. At the age of eleven he had three turtles, four frogs, five parakeets, a ten-gallon fish tank full of exotic fish, a rabbit and a beloved companion feline friend, Schooch.  His love for these animals grew deeper as his life went on.  

Gregori has worked in the Veterinary field for the past three years in animal clinics.  He witnessed and learned from the vital aspects of the veterinary field through his employment experiences. He established solid relationships with Veterinarians locally and across the United States.  Realizing there was an extreme lack of healthy alternatives in canine and feline nutrition he expanded his knowledge in order to teach, inspire and unite the elements of health to instill in pet parents for the benefit of their companion animals. 

Gregori is certified as a Pet Food Specialist through, Dogs Naturally University (DNM), and also has a Certification of Completion from the Royal Animal Health University (RAHU) focusing specifically on Integrative dog and cat Nutrition. Gregori’s dream is to one-day reach the entire globe with the platform he has built to better our pet animals, improve their quality of life and overall health and longevity. 

As Co-CEO, Co-Founder and Director of Education Gregori will lead the company as the champion for educating both team members and customers regarding healthy diets for pets. As the Company’s expert on species appropriate nutrition for dogs and cats, he will combine his passion, experience and education and be recognized in the marketplace as one who truly cares about pets, pet parents and the community.
