The Green Barn Whole Animal Nutrition is the source for all of your wholesome pet needs. We offer the absolute best in American-made pet foods, dog treats, essential nutritional supplements and safe, healthy toys. We also offer a self-service dog wash station and a full-service grooming salon featuring natural products. The Green Barn is located on Highway 19 in downtown Zelienople - just north of Pittsburgh - and is easily accessible from Interstate 79.
Our pets live such short lives in comparison to ours and everyone wants to maximize their pet's longevity and wellness. You can accomplish this by providing your pet with species-appropriate nutrition. However, selecting a food for your pet is never an easy task, especially when you desperately want to make the right decision. After being bombarded by commercials that play on your emotions and hearing frightening news reports about pet food and treat recalls, how do you go about selecting a safe and healthy pet food? The Green Barn Whole Animal Nutrition has dedicated itself to taking the guess work out of the process by ONLY offering products that have been well-researched by reputable sources and most importantly, tested by our own dogs and cats. We are fully committed to making your pet’s health, safety, and comfort our only priority.
We are always looking for the BEST and most innovative products to provide for our customers and we have added quite a few lately.
The first is Nature's Logic dog and cat food. Due to the additon of whole food supplements instead of synthetic vitamin packs, we feel that this is the absolutel best possible dry kibble on the market today. Lucas has been eating this food for a while now and I have never seen his coat look better. He is actually able to keep weight on as well. You don't have to feed very much of this either. It's almost like jerky in a kibble. He eats less that 2 cups a day and is doing well. Furthermore, the have novel proteins like venison and rabbit, which is not only uncommon, it is great for dogs with allergies. Additionally, for the 3rd year, Nature’s Logic is featured on Susan Thixon’s, "The List of Best Pet Foods". Thixton is the pet food advocate behind the website TruthaboutPetFood.com. Based on her own extensive research, Thixon used several criteria for selecting the top commercial pet foods she would feel comfortable feeding her own pets. No company on the list paid to appear on this list or sponsored Thixon or her advocacy efforts in any way. Read more below:

Who We Are
We are globally recognized as designers and developers of innovative, high quality, award-winning dog products that enhance the lifestyle people share with their 4-legged best friends. We also innovate philanthropic and values-based programs that support service dog organizations and allow us to help protect the romping grounds we all love. Since day one, we have grown our company based on core values and our commitment to our mission:
To amuse, explore, support, innovate, create,
educate, celebrate and “philanthropate”. . . all in the name of the dog.
A Values-Led Business
Planet Dog is an industry leader in “romping the romp.” Since 2006, our corporate philanthropic arm, the Planet Dog
Foundation (PDF), has contributed more than $800,000 in cash and in-kind donations to canine service programs across the country.
Unlike many philanthropic efforts in our industry, we will always give back regardless of our financial strength. And, our giving comes primarily from our sales, not donations from others. In other words, we don’t just facilitate giving, we actually give back using our company‘s revenue. Why do we do this? We’re in business for a cause, not just because.
2% of all purchases of Planet Dog products are donated to PDF, which provides cash grants to programs throughout the
that train, place and support dogs helping people in need. Service dogs, therapy dogs, police, fire & military dogs, K-9 search & rescue dogs - we celebrate ALL “working” dogs that are enhancing and saving human lives. Thanks to our dog-loving customers, PDF has supported exemplary canine service programs nationwide. Visit www.planetdogfoundation.org to see our grantees whose programs help dogs to help children and adults in need.
“The World’s Best Dog Ball”
The majority of our offering consists of award-winning toys for dogs of all ages – from pups to “old souls.” The toys are complemented by all-natural dog treats, collars and leashes, on the go products, human wear, gifts for dogs and dog lovers, and more.
Our impressive growth has been due to the Orbee® Ball. It is made of Planet Dog's eco-friendly, 100% recyclable Orbee-Tuff® compound that was engineered specifically to create the best dog toys on the planet. We worked with our chemists for almost two years to make Orbee-Tuff® into the most durable, pliable, buoyant, bouncy compound on the market. We threw in some peppermint scent to ensure dogs love the smell as much as the feel. It consists of all FDA approved non-toxic ingredients. Toys made of Orbee-Tuff®, as well as all the products we make, come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Best of all, all Orbee-Tuff® toys are made in the U.S.A.
