Polkadog and Walden Local Meat Collaborate on New Single-Ingredient, Sustainable Pork Jerky Pet Treats

Polkadog Pork Jerky is available for purchase now.




(PRESS RELEASE) Boston-based pet brand, Polkadog, who recently launched its collaboration with New England’s own Walden Local Meat Co., a community-based, direct-to-consumer meat share program, at this year’s pet industry mega show, SuperZoo, announces that its new pasture-raised, single-ingredient pet treat, Polkadog Pork Jerky, is now available for purchase. Polkadog’s commitment to local production and sustainable farming practices captured Walden Local Meat Co’s attention and together, they found a way to create a top-quality treat for both dogs and cats.

Polkadog Pork Jerky is available for purchase now via and at Polkadog retail locations. Later in October, Walden Local Meat Co. will also be offering Polkadog Pork Jerky at their brick-and-mortar butcher shop in the South End of Boston and through their meat share program, serving homes from Maine to New Jersey.

“We love everything about Walden Meat,” Polkadog’s founder Deb Suchman said. “Their South End shop, literally four blocks down the street, only sells pasture-raised meats from their small partner farms in New England and New York. Walden’s focus reconnects the local agricultural economy to companies like Polkadog, who work out of local kitchens and production facilities.”

“Polkadog’s commitment to all-natural, high quality ingredients and local processing makes them a perfect partner for Walden Local Meat Co. We’re thrilled to be expanding on our partnership with this new launch,” said Mike Leahy, vice president of brand & marketing, Walden Local Meat Co. “Working with Polkadog provides a great way to create top-quality treats and help respect the entire animal our partner farmers raise.”

Polkadog Pork Jerky is the newest addition to Polkadog’s single-ingredient treat sticks, joining pet favorites like Chicken Strips and the original Polkadog Cod Skins. For more details visit and stay tuned for exciting Fall events via Polkadog’s socials channels.
