Founder Kristina Guerrero (call sign “Turbo”) is a graduate of the Air Force Academy and proud recipient of two Combat Air Medals for missions flown in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Horn of Africa. She started TurboPUP because she wanted her dog to have a delicious Powerbar of his own. One thing led to another, and she found herself standing on the “Shark Tank” stage with an offer to help build her company.
Today, TurboPUP is still a woman run, small company, with some giant friends. In 2015, Kristina partnered with Daymond John on the hit show Shark Tank, to scale the company (see video below). Kristina’s vision is for TurboPUP to manufacture canine edibles that embody health, nutrition and premium quality. As a Veteran, Kristina donates five percent of TurbopUP’s profits to causes in support of our four legged best friends and our country’s heroes.
TurboPUP celebrates and promotes shared adventure between pup and person. Share adventures of you and your TurboPUP on our page! TurboPUP bars are interchangeable with regular dog food and safe for sensitive stomachs. We use all natural, human grade, meal replacement bars for dogs that meet AAFCO meal standards. Bars can be purchased at http://www.turbopup.com/collections/products TurboPUP’s visionary entrepreneur Dunkin, had the inspiration for the idea when his two-legged did not bring enough food during an outdoor adventure. We are an innovative, grassroots company created by outdoor, dog-loving junkies in La Pine Oregon.
Today TurboPUP is available through these retailers and they donate five percent of profits back to veteran and animal support causes. Buy for your dog, buy for others dogs, just buy because this is a great company that helps you help others in the military community.
With over 1000 hours of community service, she returned to school in 2009 to obtain a Master’s in Occupational Therapy, in pursuit of a life of service. Her life goal is to “be the change.” When she’s not nurturing TurboPUP, Kristina serves diverse populations as an occupational therapist or as a volunteer for Deschutes County Search and Rescue. She also loves to wander through the mountains with her TurboPUPs!
As a veteran-owned business, we understand the value of caring about something bigger than ourselves. TurboPUP’s vision is to promote outdoor adventure between pup and person. We are committed to being a socially responsible company. We do our best to implement sustainable practices, support local business, and charities. Our bars are made with human grade, American-sourced, all natural products that are packaged in compostable bags.
