NORTH PORT, FLA. — Choice Pet Products on Dec. 16 added Benebone to its distribution portfolio in Florida. The company manufactures chew toys and dental chews for dogs of all breed sizes.

Benebone’s products include their flagship chew, Wishbone; Dental Chews, Maplestick and Bacon Stick chewable fetch toys; Zagler; and Pawplexer, a treat-holding durable chew. The brand offers all products in five sizes — giant, large, medium, small and tiny — as well as puppy formulas made with softer materials to help with teething.

“Were thrilled to be adding the Benebone brand to the Choice Pet Products lineup,” said Doug Horiski, vice president of sales and operations at Choice Pet Products. “Many of our retailers are familiar with the Benebone brand and we believe they will be happy to now have the option to purchase Benebone products from their local distributor.”

Benebone’s products are manufactured in the United States without chemicals or artificial ingredients. The chew products are made with US-sourced nylon infused with bacon, white meat chicken, peanuts and maple wood for various flavorings.

“Choice Pet Products and Benebone are a great fit,” said Peter Toolan, chief executive officer of Benebone. “We are both privately owned and operate businesses committed to the growth of pet specialty retailers. We both foster a culture of delighting customers, excelling in our markets, and having fun doing it. Above all, while not the biggest, we both consider ourselves to be the best in our respective markets. We’re looking forward to a fun and rewarding journey together.”
