How Rudy the Picky Pug Became The Star of Our Freshpet Commercial
At Freshpet, we don’t play favorites with breeds. Big and small, purebred and mutts, we’re the kind of proud pet parents who fall in love with every dog we meet. But even we’ll admit, there’s something so uniquely charming (and entertaining) about pugs that they’re just hard to resist.

When we first asked chef Troy at Utah Valley University’s culinary institute to take a stab at dressing up our food for dogs, we didn’t know what to expect. We knew we wanted to make dishes that would taste great, without modifying them too much- it was important that we preserved the integrity of our food.
