Charlie McAvoy and His Dog, Otto, Announce New “Rocket Fuel” Pet Treat Partnership with Polkadog

They will launch a co-branded dog treat named Rocket Fuel.




(PRESS RELEASE) BOSTON, MA — Charlie McAvoy, star Defenseman for the Boston Bruins, and his dog Otto, have announced that they have partnered with Polkadog, the Boston-based company that handcrafts all-natural, limited-ingredient dog treats at the Boston Fish Pier, to launch a co-branded dog treat named Rocket Fuel.

Handmade with love by Polkadog for Otto and Charlie, Rocket Fuel is a three-ingredient, USA farm-raised chicken treat mixed with long-grain brown rice and potato flour for a perfectly delicate crunch. These chicken bones are dehydrated daily at Polkadog’s Boston Fish Pier kitchen, and are as healthy as they are delicious! Rocket Fuel will be available in all 8 Polkadog Bakery retail locations and online beginning on November 14th, 2022.

The partnership, inspired by Otto and Charlie’s adventures around Boston and their love for the Polkadog Bakery Seaport store, includes a video series titled ‘On the Go with Charlie and Otto.’ ‘On the Go with Charlie and Otto’ chronicles the wholesome relationship between Charlie and his french bulldog Otto McAvoy, as they navigate through the streets in the city of Boston. To watch all the episodes of the series, follow @polkadog, @ottotherocketdog and @cmcavoy25 on Instagram, and @CMcAvoy44 on Twitter.

To celebrate Rocket Fuel’s debut, on Tuesday, November 15th, fans will get the exciting opportunity to attend a meet and greet with Charlie and Otto at the Boston Seaport Polkadog Bakery (119 Seaport Blvd), from 3:30 – 5:00 PM. During the event, customers who purchase 4 Rocket Fuel tubes will receive one signed by Charlie.

“Otto and I are so excited to partner with Polkadog, a shop we have been fans of since Otto joined the family,” McAvoy says. “Growing up in a household with a dad who owned a small business, I feel a special connection with Polkadog’s local roots in the Boston community. Us McAvoys look forward to a long, healthy and tasty future with Polkadog!”


“We’re beyond thrilled to be teaming up with Otto, and of course Charlie, on this super fun and tasty adventure,” says Polkadog founder Rob Van Sickle. “As a Boston-based company with roots in many of our local neighborhoods, what better way to spread the Polkadog love than partnering with a couple of hometown heroes to make an out of this world delicious treat!”

Polkadog continues to celebrate their 20th anniversary as a champion of healthy, handcrafted and sustainable pet treats. Polkadog and its product lines have been praised by significant press outlets such as People Magazine, Town & Country, Buzzfeed, and beyond.
