In 2008, Kathleen Desrosiers, an animal health technician, founded Aïkiou. After giving birth to her daughter Joany, she realized she was running out of time to take care of Sumo, our Golden Retriever. As he began to show signs of boredom, he had to find something to occupy and prolong his meal while making it fun seemed the best idea. So she started working with specialists in animal behavior to create a bowl that would occupy them but that would also correspond to how they would eat in nature. Given the enthusiasm of veterinarians for the solution, what was a solution for our family became a product, then a category of products recommended by most veterinarians.
