HAVERSTRAW, N.Y. — All-natural pet treat company, TickledPet, will enter independent retail stores in Washington, Oregon and Idaho through a partnership with Independent Pet Supply (IPS). The brand’s single-ingredient dog and cat treats include fish skins, vegetarian chews, yak chews, jerky treats and bully sticks.

“When looking for a partner in the Pacific Northwest to carry our line of single ingredient treats, we found that IPS lined up with our goal of sticking with the independent regional distributors that deal primarily with the independent pet stores that are vital for building a brand,” said Reuven Lakein, co-founder of TickledPet.

Keya Khorami, owner of IPS, added, “Tickled Pet’s high-quality single ingredient treats are the perfect addition to our portfolio of high-quality dog treats.”
