NORWALK, CT – Get Joy, a pioneer in holistic dog wellness, proudly announces its strategic partnership with Phillips Pet Food and Supplies, a leading distributor of pet products to independent pet retailers. This collaboration marks a significant milestone for Get Joy as it builds an omnichannel strategy across DTC and retail, making its holistic wellness products accessible to more dog parents nationwide. 

Get Joy is on a mission to improve and extend the lives of dogs and their families through wellness and nutrition, by focusing on our canine companion’s body, mind, and soul. Founded in 2019 by Tom Arrix, the brand was born from a personal journey of navigating Tom’s own dog’s health scare, igniting a commitment to revolutionize the dog food category. Get Joy offers science-backed products optimized for canine health with gut healthy nutrition at its core. 

At Get Joy, the focus is on providing health-conscious dog owners with a complete wellness platform, delivering value (and joy) at every step of their routine. Through its new partnership with Phillips Pet, Get Joy’s innovative lineup of products, will now be available through Phillips Pet’s extensive network of over 6000 independent pet retailers, reaching markets nationwide. Get Joy will be launching in the following Phillips Pet Warehouses: Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Florida, Michigan, California & Oregon.
