Rising Stars: Meet Trevor Cronin

Today we’d like to introduce you to Trevor Cronin. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Trevor Cronin is a 25-year-old entrepreneur from St. Louis, Missouri. Since a very young age, Trevor has had a passion for all pets, especially dogs. After one of his pups, Ruby, had persistent and severe gastrointestinal reactions to every treat she ate, Trevor decided to formulate treats of his own. Specifically, limited-ingredient treats that all dogs could enjoy, regardless of their intake sensitivity. With the help of a great team, he did just that, co-founding Dog Treat Naturals in 2020 shortly after graduating with his MBA degree. Trevor currently works as Dog Treat Natural’s Chief Operating Officer, handling all research and development, quality assurance, and logistics. Since the company’s inception, Trevor and his team have been able to provide thousands of dogs nationwide with high-quality, natural, USA-made treats that exclude all artificial preservatives. His overall mission is to provide all pets and pet owners with the ability to feed their pups premium, healthy treats at an affordable price.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It hasn’t always been easy for Trevor and his team at Dog Treat Naturals. The company launched in January of 2020, right before the Covid-19 pandemic ensued. Though the first 6-8 months were extremely difficult, Dog Treat Naturals found their footing in the fall of 2020 and began expanding nationwide. Their products are now available in over 5,000 retailers nationwide as well as on Chewy.com and Amazon.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Trevor Cronin comes from a primarily athletic background where he played high school, collegiate, and professional golf in Missouri and Arizona. He won the individual class 1 state high school championship in Missouri in 2013 and collegiate tournaments as well. Trevor’s father, Rick, has been a huge influence for him growing up. Rick has been a real estate investor, developer, and builder in the St. Louis area for over 25 years, which ultimately motivated Trevor to get his real estate license in 2019. Trevor and Rick have done quite a few real estate investment projects together throughout the past couple of years and recently throughout the current housing boom. Rick is also co-owner in Dog Treat Naturals and brings a tremendous amount of tacit business and entrepreneurial expertise to the company.

Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
There is always risk involved in starting up any business from a financial standpoint. In starting Dog Treat Naturals, Trevor and Rick took an educated risk but knew with their work ethic and Rick’s tacit knowledge in business, they would be able to make it work. Trevor and Rick have always been risk takers in business and enjoy the pressure of investing in themselves to be successful. The risk is what drives them to be better than the competition and provide our consumers with the best products at the best prices.
