Barkworthies Launches New Line of Natural Dog Chews

Barkworthies’ new smoked line of products will be available in June at Pet Supermarket stores across the country.




(PRESS RELEASE) RICHMOND, VA – Barkworthies high-quality, natural dog chews and snacks, introduces the first-ever hickory smoked line of natural dog chews.

The new Barkworthies smoked chews feature Southern BBQ flavor and the sweet smelling aroma of ribs coming off the grill.

“Through our research and consumer studies, we know that dog parents want to give their dogs the best in health and nutrition,” said Andrea Blades, chief marketing officer at Barkworthies. “But single ingredient natural chews such as Bully Sticks or Pig Ears often come with one top complaint – the odor.

“While dogs love stinky chews, dog parents simply don’t,” she said. “Our research shows that this can sometimes result in the pet parent choosing an unhealthy choice (such as rawhide) simply to avoid an unpleasant odor.

“At Barkworthies, we believe that dogs and their parents should have an exceptional experience with our products, including their odor, and they should never need to compromise a healthy choice. We are excited to announce our new line of Naturally Smoked Chews and Treats for Dogs. “Our line of hickory cold smoked chews and treats have an incredible aroma of smokey goodness making them irresistible to dogs and dog parents alike,” said Blades. “Our innovative cold smoking process (patent pending) adds just the right amount of smokey barbecue aroma and unbeatable flavor, while maintaining the integrity of the chew and our steadfast commitment to an all-natural product. You won’t find smoke powder or liquid smoke on these chews – just meat, smoke and love.”

New Barkworthies naturally smoked dog chews include:

  • Smoked Bully Sticks (3pk)
  • Smoked Thick Bully Sticks (3pk)
  • Smoked Trachea (3pk)
  • Smoked Yak Cheese (2pk)
  • Smoked Chicken Breast Fillet (4oz)
  • Smoked Beefy Sticks (15pk)
  • Smoked Rib Bones (10pk)
  • Smoked Beef Burgers (6pk)

The chews offer unparalleled flavor and are prepared just like a smoke pit master would with no shortcuts, just fire, smoke and patience. The taste and smell are irresistible and great for picky eating pooches! To create these great tasting treats TDBBS built a new state-of-the-art smoking operation located at company headquarters in Virginia to enhance the fact that all TDBBS products are manufactured in the United States.

Smoked Bully Sticks These bully sticks smell so good, you’ll find yourself going back for another whiff! Offered in standard and thick and approximately six inches in length, the sticks are long lasting and support dental health and a dog’s innate need to chew. Thick bully sticks are well-suited to dogs that prefer a more demanding chew and the smoky flavor will entice them to keep going. They’re a good choice for strong and enthusiastic chewers of all breeds and sizes. These long-lasting, challenging, and satisfying chews will keep your pup occupied and begging for more.

Smoked Trachea features a natural, rich BBQ flavor and are designed for dogs who prefer a lighter chew. The crunchy, hollow treats are made from the windpipe of a cow and feature a gnarled surface that keeps dogs interested. The textured treats help grind down plaque and tartar as your dog chews, leading to better dental hygiene. Trachea is packed full of chondroitin and glucosamine, two naturally-occurring substances that help keep your dog’s joints healthy. The smokey flavor makes these a perfect healthy treat. Pack them full of peanut butter or other treats and watch your pup go crazy.

Smoked Large Yak Cheese are authentic Himalayan yak cheese direct from Nepal, and made of milk, lime juice and salt. Barkworthies Smoked Yak cheese is sure to have a cult following as the flavor and aroma is simply irresistible to dogs of all sizes. Our Yak is free from additives such as potato starch which you’ll find in other brands. It is a naturally hard chew – the hardest cheese in the world! Natural Yak chews help with maintaining dental health, occupy your dog while they are busy chewing (and they will chew for a long time), and they supply natural healthy minerals for overall balance.

Smoked Chicken Breast Fillet feature all natural chicken breast, glycerin water and salt. These smoked pure chicken breast filets look and smell incredible. The chicken breast contains high levels of protein and low levels of fat making these chews ideal in supplementing a dog’s daily protein requirement. High-protein and low-fat diet is important in keeping a dog’s weight in check.

Smoked Beefy Sticks are made of natural beef, beef skin, beef pizzle and gelatin. Smoked Beefy Sticks are a light and airy chew that are a great bully alternative. Quick and crunchy, these treats are made from beef and bully flake for that signature mouth-watering taste. These delicious beef treats are a smokey satisfying snack for dogs of every size. Beefy Sticks can easily be broken into smaller pieces for treating and rewarding.


Smoked Rib Bones You know how much you love that smell of smoky ribs coming off the bbq. Now you can give your dog an extra-special treat with our drool-worthy Smoked Beef Rib Bones. These meaty chews are the perfect treat for smaller dogs to gnaw on. They’re 100% natural, sourced from high-quality cattle, and packed full of rich, beefy flavor. Smoked Beef Rib Bones are highly palatable and encourage positive chewing habits, strengthening teeth and gums as they scrape away plaque and tartar. These dense bones also satisfy your dog’s natural desire to chew and help reduce destructive behavior.

Smoked Beef Patties feature natural smoked beef and vegetable glycerin. These meaty, savory snacks are the perfect size for training, rewarding, or snacking. The nutrient-dense snacks are naturally high in protein and collagen and sourced from grass-fed, free-range cattle. Keep these handy for when you need a quick and satisfying treat for your dog of any age.

“We couldn’t be more excited to introduce our new smoked line of dog chews,” said Blades. “We feel this is a major breakthrough as far as taste and smell in the natural pet chews and snacks industry.”

“All of our products are created by pet parents for pet parents that really care about the products they give to their dogs,” added Blades. “We think the naturally smoked line of products are a win-win any way you look at it.”

Barkworthies’ new smoked line of products will be available in June at Pet Supermarket stores across the country.
