GREENVILLE, ILL. — Dog-O’s™, a dog treat brand owned by Marcoot Jersey Creamery, announced a distribution expansion on May 18. The brand has partnered with AFCO Distribution and Milling to serve pet specialty retailers in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Nevada and Wyoming.
“We are thrilled to partner with AFCO and most effectively serve independent retailer relationships all along the Northwest regions that share our values supporting pet specialty retailers and love our artisanal, US-made cheese treats,” said Amy Marcoot, co-owner of Marcoot Jersey Creamery. “Each of our Dog-O’s treats are made with the same care and consideration that our cheese for humans is made each and every day, and we greatly appreciate the support of the pet industry as a whole and retailers and distributors like AFCO that believe in our products as much as we do.”
In conjunction with the distribution expansion, Dog-O’s also announced it would be launching two new treats: Cheese Bites™ and Ice Ice Doggy™, a frozen, whey protein cup. AFCO will carry the new treats, as well as Dog-O’s existing Cheesy Chompers™ and Cheesy Chompers™ with Real Bacon products.
“AFCO is thrilled to have added the Dog-O’s product line of US-made cheese treats to our brand portfolio,” said Judee High, pet category manager at AFCO. “Offering top-quality, innovative product lines available for our dealers is one of our top priorities and Dog-O’s certainly fits that bill. The AFCO team is very excited about the opportunity to be a Dog-O’s distribution partner.”
