How Pet Therapy Changed One Man’s Life and Career — Navy Vet’s dog…

“I created Beast & Buckle products because I love my dog more than anything in the entire world,” he said. “I wanted him to have something that was safe and comfortable and high-quality but I also really wanted something that would reflect his personality because he’s such a fun little guy.”

There’s a special bond between dogs and their human caretakers that goes beyond companionship and loyalty. For one dog owner turned entrepreneur, the one-of-a-kind relationship was so heartfelt, it saved his life.

“Without Clark, I don’t know if I’d still be here. The pain of my father’s suicide and my own battle with depression took a huge toll on me, one with which I constantly and severely struggled. Clark gave me a new lease on life – I had a reason to wake up every day and smile. He is that important to me and that impactful on my life.”

Stew Anderson is the “human” co-founder of Beast & Buckle along with his “furry four-legged” co-founder, a French bulldog named Clark. For Anderson, this business venture wouldn’t be possible without Clark. Their unshakeable bond began before creating the dog accessory line.

In 2016, Anderson’s world turned upside-down when his father passed away. The next year plunged him into a deep depression. Looking for ways to help him lift his spirits, his mother and sister suggested he get a dog. Although Anderson was always a dog lover, he didn’t have many opportunities in the past to own one with his time in the Navy followed by jobs involving travel.

His sister first introduced him to Clark through his puppy photo, and Anderson knew right away that the little gray Frenchie was the best friend for whom he’d been searching. Meeting and bringing Clark home turned out to the best life decision that even changed his whole career trajectory to design Beast & Buckle’s flagship harness collection.

“I created Beast & Buckle products because I love my dog more than anything in the entire world,” he said. “I wanted him to have something that was safe and comfortable and high-quality but I also really wanted something that would reflect his personality because he’s such a fun little guy.”

While few dog owners will embark on a journey like Anderson’s, scientific studies are uncovering the multiple benefits animals have on humans. Evidence shows how pets can improve mental health and physical factors such as lower blood pressure.

Anderson is a shining example of how animal therapy has the power to transform. With his darkest days behind him, this co-founder is ready to empower others on two and four legs.
