Pet Supermarket Is First Industry Retailer to Offer Barkworthies All-Natural, Sweet Smoky Aroma, Hickory BBQ Dog Chews

New chews are smoked in small batches over natural hickory hardwood in Richmond, VA, in a state-of-the-art smoke house facility.




(PRESS RELEASE) RICHMOND, VA – Barkworthies high-quality, natural dog chews and snacks, announces that Pet Supermarket, owned by Atlanta-based equity firm Roark Capital Group, is the first industry retailer to carry Barkworthies All-Natural Sweet Smoky Aroma, Hickory BBQ Dog Chews starting Memorial Day weekend and continuing throughout the summer and beyond. Pet Supermarket operates stores in Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, and North Carolina.

“We could not be happier to join forces with Pet Supermarket to offer our new line of Barkworthies smoked BBQ dog chews to its customer base,” said Andrea Blades, chief marketing officer for TDBBS. “We share in our excitement to bring this new line of high quality, hickory sweet smelling dog chews to discerning pet parents across the country.

“Through our research and consumer studies, we know that dog parents want to give their dogs the best in health and nutrition,” said Blades. “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.

“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 aroma, 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 ensuring that all TDBBS products are manufactured in the United States.


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. For more information please visit
