(PRESS RELEASE) RICHMOND, VA – TDBBS, makers of Barkworthies, PawLove and Best Bully Sticks, announces the new Backyard Barkers dog chews has won the Independent Innovations Award for “Dog Treat Product of the Year.” The award winning chews are lower in calories, lower in fat and rich in collagen with the added dental health that chewing provides.

“We are so proud to win this prestigious award for our new Backyard Barker chews,” said Andrea Blades, chief marketing officer for TDBBS, makers of Best Bully Sticks, Barkworthies and PawLove Treats. “We knew we had something special on our hands when we saw how dogs reacted to the collagen rich beef burgers. It looks like they are popular with our furry pals as well as the judging committee from the
Independent Innovations Awards.”

Backyard Barkers scored high in the overall quality of ingredients used,” said Travis Grant, Independent Innovations Award Committee. “The use of fillers and non-natural ingredients is a growing trend we see in today’s pet world. The ethical sourcing of ingredients of Backyard Barkers also scored high with the judges. Additionally the health benefits of the treat, collagen usage and dental health, really set them apart from the other nominees.”

Barkworthies takes careful steps in producing their all natural beef chews. It starts with the finest free range, grass fed beef sourced from Columbia, Brazil and Argentina and ends in high quality chews like the all new Collagen Backyard Barkers.

“Our chews originate from six breeds of cattle that are raised for human consumption,” said Smith. “After they are humanely slaughtered, we use the remaining parts of the cow to create our chews. All of this is done under industry leading food safety programs and allows us to fully utilize the whole cow in creating our healthy chews that dogs love.”

Barkworthies was created as a new class of dog chews; premium products free from artificial preservatives, additives, and ingredients. We know dogs, and we know how to ensure they are happy and healthy.
