A Note From Our CVO

Peter Brown, DVM   |   Chief Veterinary Officer

We love our pets. They are our family members — but while we’ve always loved them, the way we love them has evolved. The veterinary industry has done amazing work improving the physical health of dogs and cats; they are living longer lives than ever before. As our understanding of pet psychology has blossomed, so has the need to incorporate it into everyday pet care, and the need for pet families to emphasize it at home. At Wagly, we’re focused on the complete health and well-being of the pet and providing convenience to the pet parent!

He has worked on all species during his career and has helped develop Chuckanut Valley Veterinary Clinic into a leader in the industry.

Chief Operating Officer

Craig Susen has a long track record of creating innovative solutions to solve unique business problems across a myriad of industries. Bringing nearly two decades of experience to the job, Craig is uniquely equipped to deliver state of the art technology solutions to the forefront of the pet care space and to Wagly customers and pets. His focus on user-centric design has pushed the boundaries of the technologies he has delivered for the likes of Trupanion, Microsoft, Hitachi, Global Nuclear Fuels, Novartis, Banfield, and many others. Having grown up surrounded by dogs, cats, and horses, Craig has spent much of his life working and playing with his four-legged family members. Most recently, Craig’s incredibly strong bond with his dog Grymmus (an American Pitbull Terrier), has been a driving force for him to create innovative technology solutions to make the confluence of life, health, and pet care a no brainer, everyday.

“Why Wagly, you ask? Simple. Our core focus is always to: Do what’s best for the pet. With this simple mantra baked into every fiber of our business, we truly have the opportunity to move mountains for our pets and customers.”
