Anthony Gardiner (he/him) – Founder / Chef / Cleaner
Hi there. I am Anthony, the founder of the Fussy Dog Co. When I was a wee one my father was a chef, so by age six I was in the kitchen making biscuits and cakes – mostly for myself. When I got my first dog I started making food for him at home, with my friends often remarking that my dog ate better than them.
Fast forward a few years and when I lost my travel industry job due to Covid, I had to get creative in the kitchen again to get our R&D department (Cashew, Astrid , and Chewie) to eat a full meal. The instant gravy powder we made to get them eating again was a huge hit with our dogs, our friends’ dogs, and everyone else who heard about.
Having recently completed a masters degree gave me access to leading academic research to help refine our products, and also helped me build up the systems that have allowed us to scale to where we are today without losing any quality or compromising the founding ethos of the company.
