That night the brothers began formulating the blends that would provide the exact nutrition that their own dogs needed to perform and to look their best. They named the company Black Gold, after one of their dad’s great Foxhound Champions; Black Gold is the dog pictured on most of the bags. Black Gold Dog Food was started by John and Don Allen, brothers who have promoted and delivered dog food most of their life. Earl Allen, their father, owned a Midwestern distribution for “Houn Dawg” dog food during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Earl (now deceased) and John also owned AA Kennels together, one of the finest American Foxhound kennels in the country, producing many generations of local, state, national and international field and bench champions.
In 2015, a big change occurred in Black Gold Pet Foods, Inc. After being family owned and operated for nearly 20 years, ProPet LLC, decided to purchase the Black Gold brand and launch it to a new level. Black Gold had problems in distribution as a small company. The partnership with ProPet promises the levels of quality that Black Gold has always insisted upon, as well as the added convenience of wider distribution that our customers need. So now, along with having one of the best dog foods in the country, Black Gold will be available in more areas.
