The BLUE Story | Blue Buffalo Pet Food

At Blue Buffalo, it's all about family. See how our dog inspired a pet food company in this short film about how it all got started.

Join the Herd!

Blue Buffalo® is a family of like-minded pet parents and animal lovers who join together for one reason: to support the health and well-being of furry family members everywhere.

There are no employees here
• Every one is a Herd member
• Herd members are friends
• Herd members are part of the Buff family

Like working with a bunch of animals?
Every day is “bring-your-dog to-work day” at Blue Buffalo. After all, we love (and feed) our furry friends like family so naturally we want them by our side. Of course, we love cats too, but they don’t always work well with canines at the office.

N. A. policy
Herd mantra: “Who you ride the river (or roam the plains) with is just as
important as where you’re going!” Hence:
• No barking, growling or whining (furry co-workers get a pass most of the time)
• No alpha-dog office politics
• No ego maniacs
• No “MY squeak toy, mine!” We’re a team who shares ideas, workload, even sandwiches.
• No “I’m just here for the treats,” though there are quite a few perks, including monthly pet food allowances.

You’ll need your shots to work here
Even if you don’t have a four-legged best friend of your own, you’ll need to like or at least tolerate free-range furry co-workers roaming the office and attending meetings (especially when new treats are being tested). If you’re allergic to animal fur, you’ll probably need allergy meds or shots to be comfortable here.

It’s all about family
Our furry founder, a large-breed Airedale named Blue, inspired his pet parent Bill Bishop, with sons Billy and Chris, to create a healthier food for all furry family members. From humble beginnings in a barn more than a decade ago, Blue Buffalo has become the fastest growing, premium natural pet food in the U.S., with an ever-growing international presence.

Some of the kin
Blue Buffalo is the first pet food family to hire in-store Pet Detectives (not in the spy sense, though they do investigate our products inside out). Pet Detectives are essential to the Buff’s success as they help pet parents make informed decisions about what to feed their furry companions.
