Chocodog Records was started in 2001. It was founded by Gene Ween and Dean Ween of the band Ween and run by their management company, Greg Frey Management. This company was created after their contract with their record company, Elektra Records, expired. Chocodog started with the release of Ween's "Live in Toronto Canada" CD. Chocodog has grown from 2001 and has signed three other bands: Moistboyz, Instant Death and Chris Harford.
Chocodog is distributed by Schnitzel Records (London) in Europe.
