On this episode of My Dog Digs Dirt meet some up and coming pet entrepreneurs who are taking the pet world by storm...

I am Brandon Zavala, the founder and president at Apollo Peak. We make Cat Wines and Dog Wines including The Pinot Meow, The MosCATo, The Catbernet, The ZinfanTail and The CharDOGnay. Our mission is to help humans and pets interact in a more social and fun manner on those nights when you just don't feel like going out. We are based in Denver, Colorado in the heart of the Capitol Hill neighborhood - known to be a mecca for pet owners.
My cats include Apollo - a 10 year old Chartreux and Hades - an 8 year old siamese/domestic mix. Both were shelter cats before coming home. Fun story, Apollo actually disappeared for two years and was found by a shelter via his microchip.
