About Us

Harper 

Tibetan Mastiff

The Girl Behind the name

Harper is a one year old Tibetan Mastiff. This 120 pound giant is a true gentle soul. The reason Harper & Friends got started is because of this girl. Harper was an incredibly sick puppy. We switched her to a gently cooked and raw diet hoping that would help strengthen her immune system, which it did. However, she had a terrible allergic reaction to one of the store bought foods we gave her that landed her in the ER as she almost stopped breathing due to her tongue swelling. The lesson we learned was that not all foods are created equal, we needed to feed her quality products with minimal ingredients that we can trust.

Fast forward and we learned Harper was born with a heart that doesn’t function as efficiently as it should. To help her live a normal life as long as possible, we have dedicated ourselves into learning what natural foods can help her body function more efficiently. But it wasn’t that easy, of course! Harper is one picky girl and did NOT like some of the supplements we added to her food, like beetroot powder for her heart. So we had to find ways to hide her supplements in products that she will eat.

We decided to share with everyone the treats, chews, and infused honey we have been making because we know how hard it can be to find a company you can truly trust. All our ingredients are hand selected with your pets in mind, if we wouldn’t give it to our own dogs then we refuse to use it! We are excited for this new adventure and hope to have you join us along the way!
