CANOPHERA Seals New Distribution Partnership with Burlo Pet Services

Burlo will bring CANOPHERA to independent retailers throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Chicagoland (Illinois).




(PRESS RELEASE) NEW BERN, NC – “The Original” natural wood dog chews, CANOPHERA has quickly become the world’s leading producer and distributor of the“original” all-natural wood dog chews and is now proud to announce their distribution partnership with Burlo Pet Services. Burlo will bring CANOPHERA to independent retailers throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Chicagoland (Illinois).

CANOPHERA’s co-founders Sebastian Klafka and Benjamin Lemm were inspired to launch the company in 2012 based on their deep love for dogs with an unwavering dedication to sustainability and pet health. Since the initial launch, CANOPHERA went from a small start up to a global leader of natural wood dog chews, now supplying these favorite wood chews to almost 20 countries in Europe and now independent retailers across the USA and North America under new leadership from Rob Johnson, President of CANOPHERA, LLC.

“We are thrilled to keep the momentum of CANOPHERA’s distribution success with a partnership with Burlo,” says Rob Johnson, president of CANOPHERA LLC. “Drawing from Burlo’s extensive independent retailer networks throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Chicagoland, this partnership of support serving pet retail partners is the perfect next step for our company and distribution goals.”

Gene Large, co-owner of Burlo, adds, “ Burlo is thrilled to be one of CANOPHERA’s first distribution partners in the United States. The brand offers our independent pet retailers and other wholesale accounts with incredibly high-quality and innovative products. CANOPHERA has been a quick hit here at Burlo and we’re excited to continue the early momentum we’ve gained after launching the line earlier this year.”

“The Original” all-natural wood dog chews, CANOPHERA Chew Sticks are made from caffeine-free coffee wood, which is a natural byproduct during coffee production, so no tree is uprooted or cut down for production. Made from the best materials mother nature has to offer, CANOPHERA’s sticks are particularly resilient and less likely to splinter, and are 100% vegan and free from any harmful additives.
