15 of the Weirdest Jobs We’ve Ever Heard Of

FDA Warns Of Contaminated Pet Food Still Being Sold

Pet Food Tester

While a taste tester for regular, human food may seem like a pretty cool gig, being a pet food tester is definitely one of the weirdest jobs that I’ve heard about. I’m not sure how true this is for all pet food companies, but it is most certainly true for Huds and Toke, whose owner, Mark Gooley has said before, “If you wouldn’t put it inside your mouth, don’t dare expect your dog to eat it.” There’s no exact number found for the amount of food testers within the company, or within other companies, but it is reported that Gooley himself tries out out the pet food for Huds and Toke himself.
