Prairie Dog Pet Products Expands Facilities in Abilene, Texas and Montrose, California

Prairie Dog Pet Products, a premium manufacturer of freeze dried, smoked and natural pet treats, is allocating another $18 million in 2021 for equipment and facilities in Montrose, California and Abilene, Texas.

According to company officials, this move will dramatically expand output across its manufactured product lines while increasing food safety and innovation.

"We're focused on each facility becoming world class in quality, sustainability and efficiency," said Ted Mischaikov, CEO at Prairie Dog Pet Products. "Each investment is interwoven into the fabric of processes and products we are creating across frozen, freeze dried, air dried and smoked treats and diets. Our goal is to provide large volumes of higher quality and more innovative dried products for our private label and co-pack business partners."

Headquartered in Abilene, Prairie Dog Pet Products is a leading specialty manufacturer and marketer of premium, American-made dog treats, including freeze-dried treats, jerky, natural parts and hand-crafted antlers. The Company markets its products under its own brand as well as via private label relationships with top brands and retailers in the pet industry. The Company operates six manufacturing and distribution facilities in Texas, Colorado and Washington.

"These capital and process initiatives will increase our prowess and capacity to create the clean, healthy nutrition customers expect and their pets absolutely deserve," added Mischaikov. "We're advancing aggressively into the future technologies and processes that best serve our brand partners and the pets they feed. It's an exciting time to work at Prairie Dog!"
