Captain Zack was conceived in 2016 when owner and founder, Mohit Lalvani was unable to find a good shampoo and conditioner for his beautiful pup Zack, who had sensitive skin.
Mohit, a seasoned entrepreneur put his 3-decade long personal care and pharma experience to use which led him to formulate a non-irritant, gentle, and pH balanced shampoo for his puppy Zack and the rest is history. Ecstatic from the success of the grooming range, Mohit felt the need to build on this brand that would be a catalyst towards solving these problems for all pets and pet parents. After all, ticks, fleas and dirt create all kinds of infections that directly affect the health of a pet.
A Clean Pet Is A Healthy Pet!
After penetration into the grooming segment, Captain Zack has extended the range and entered the nutrition segment. The brand has launched a wholesome, healthy and nutritious range of treats and foods specially curated
at Mohit’s Kitchen. After all, food has a big role to play in the longevity of our pet’s lives.
Because Healthy Pets Live Longer!
Since pets are family and at home. A pet’s environment also impacts his health and state of mind. That’s why Captain Zack decided to launch a range of products for their habitat. After all, A Happy Place Makes A Healthy Pet!
We believe that our well researched, innovative and safe range of products contribute to our pet’s overall well being. Leaving pet parent’s justifiably proud of their healthy, active pets. After all, Behind Every Healthy Pet Is A Proud Parent!
Captain Zack wholeheartedly contributes to the ‘WeLove Animals’ Foundation of which Mohit & his family are the trustees. A part of Captain Zack’s profits is donated to the NGO for the welfare of animals. Captain Zack also educates pet parents through ‘Captain Zack’s University of Barkley’ on pet care, pet health, and ensuring pet parents have all the tools they need to raise a happy, healthy, and content fur baby.

Specially formulated for our pet’s delicate skin since a dog’s skin pH is more neutral than humans. A dog’s skin is very close to a neutral pH and significantly more alkaline than human skin. So, the kind of shampoo you use on a dog or cat should be much more neutral in pH than the typical pH value of shampoo formulated for human hair.

Meet the Crew
Now that all the introductory formalities are behind us, let us meet the team that creates the best pet health products around.
He’s the top dog around here and the man with the plan (oops, we meant dog with the plan)! Our CBO (Chief Barking Officer) has his paws in everything – sales, advertising, formulating, the whole business essentially. A true leader of the herd, Captain Zack manages to blend authority, inspiration and his caring approach in the perfect combination. When he’s not out there being a total boss, Captain Zack is hanging with his entourage and being hounded by the ladies.
He’s the pup in training. High on motivation, Zip is in the system to learn everything he can. This eager beaver (you know what we mean!) can be seen hovering around Captain Zack or waiting outside his office finding an excuse to get in. Often at the receiving end of Pi’s practical jokes, Zip’s desire to fit in usually ends up backfiring. He’s just an excited & adorable pup who credits his cuteness to Captain Zack’s paraben free dog shampoos (and spends all his internship stipend on them too).
With an IQ of over 200, he’s the brains of this unit. Tirelessly working on concocting the
latest pet friendly shampoos, Pi is often found lost in thought even after hours. Some are simply flabbergasted by his desire to create the best moisturising dog shampoo and conditioner, while others consider him to be the canine Elon Musk or “ELON MUTT” for coming up with his super-secret ingredient in the anti-itch dog shampoo! Rumour has it, he also knows how to catch his own tail.
Yes, he might look buff and scary, but he’s an absolute delight. Dozer has got some serious wanderlust goals. He travels to far off-places to source the best natural ingredients for the Captain Zack range of products. When he’s not out there sourcing ingredients for the best dog shampoo for ticks and fleas, he likes to work out and chase cars.
PS: If Dozer catches up to your car, don’t worry, he just wants a nice belly rub!
This chatty sweetheart is the fashionista of the crew. Confident, outgoing and fun, Shelby is a pretty face and so much more! Her BioTech degree from UC Barkley makes her responsible for ensuring that we use the safest and most soothing ingredients in every product so Captain Zack can be crowned as the best dog shampoo and conditioner brand around. There are whispers in the media that she might even be more influential than Queen Bey. #WhoRunTheWorld.
Hi there, I’m Zoey – Captain Zack’s best friend. But he hates to admit it in public. After all I’m a gorgeous, well-mannered cat and he’s just an ugh, dog. What got me to like him though was how clean and nice he always smells. Surprisingly as well presented as us cats. Then got to know he has his own range of shampoos and grooming products. That was the best mews ever. We instantly became friends. He loves my sense of humour, my fine taste for gourmet seafood and my 80’s pop playlist on Catify. I love how he trusts me. No wonder he let me have my own line of products. Dogs. So gullible.
The newest addition to the team, Tony may just be the biggest foodie you’ll ever meet! Whether it’s one of Captain Zack’s tasty home cooked meals, or your very own human treats which he may have stolen, you can always find this golden stud snacking! A true culinary afficianado, Tony loves all kind of food, from biscuits, to burgers!
