The roots of the Bavarian family Interquell stretch back to 1765. It all began in the 18th century with a grain mill on the River Singold in Wehringen. In the 1950s came the pioneering innovation: using a brand-new technology and the corresponding machinery cereal was produced that, put together with dried meat, resulted in the first complete dry dog food!
Our recipes, ingredients and additives have been refined time and again over the years, based on the latest scientific knowledge.
And eventually above-average growth rates put Happy Dog in second place in the
dry dog food sector in German specialist pet shops, a respectable result.
But that was not enough! The coveted Happy Dog products have made their way from Wehringen to the rest of the world. So Happy Dog is now available not just in Germany, but also in Europe, most of Eastern Europe and in some countries in Asia, Africa and South America.
Of course all products are made exclusively in the Bavarian operation in Wehringen.
