Dog-gone Sauce Company was created by Jeff Schmidt. Schmidt used his experience in the supermarket industry and involvement in a hot sauce company with a friend to create the company, intending to donate the profits to animal shelters. He first began with two sauces, Smoky Sweet BBQ Sauce and Chipotle Hot Sauce and later added two additional sauces, Pineapple Honey Hot Sauce and Honey Rum Hot Sauce.
The bottles of Dog-gone Sauce have an adage on the label "Dog-gone Sauce will donate 100% of the after tax profits. Every animal deserves a loving home."
The following varieties of Dog-gone Sauce are produced:
