The Pet Friendly Champion
Dugger is a 14-year old Bichon-Frise Shih Tzu mix who is the face of the Dugger Dinners franchise.
While it’s an animated version of Dugger that serves as our chief branding symbol, Dugger remains at the heart of our planning and decision-making for the company. He’s truly the Face of the Franchise!
What We Do

When Founder Ken Barlow was traveling with his best friend Dugger, he found that once paying his hotel pet fee, Dugger was all but forgotten. This made what could have been a great experience, only a so-so one for both of them. Ken aimed to change that. Dugger Dinners is the first pet services company created specifically to serve the pet friendly needs of the hospitality industry. We provide hotels, restaurants, AirBNBs, breweries, and state parks a complete solution to ensure that visiting dogs have a first-rate experience.
The Dugger team has worked hard to source, assemble and present a collection of products that today’s pet parents have shown they want through current purchase trends. Further, with careful attention to feedback from Hoteliers, AirBnB hosts, Brewery managers and even Festival Planners (yea, you heard us), we learned that it’s not just about the products – it’s the attention to detail in communicating policy, displaying appealing materials, and highlighting both indoor and outdoor amenities that round out a guest’s interactions with a venue. Together, these are the things that improve a guest experience, produce positive reviews, and in the end, help boost traffic and revenue.
