KANSAS CITY, MO. — Three Dog Bakery recently announced an exclusive distribution partnership with Phillips Pet Food & Supplies, expanding its national distribution. The distributor will carry all of Three Dog Bakery’s products.

Founded in 1989, Three Dog Bakery specializes in wholesome, palatable dog treats. Inspired by human baked goods and developed by pastry chefs, the slow-baked dog treats are formulated with premium ingredients, including egg, fruit and molasses.

“We are very excited to join the Phillips Pet Food & Supplies family of great pet food brands,” said Jerry Dear, president of consumer products division for Three Dog Bakery. “After careful consideration, we elected to partner exclusively with Phillips to allow us to achieve national distribution due to their growth mindset and professional executive leadership team.

“By working exclusively with Philips, given their focus on growth and customer service, we believe our reach to the key players in the independent pet channel will be well received,” Dear added. “They are the perfect partner to make Three Dog Bakery accessible to more pet parents across the country.”

Three Dog Bakery’s treat offerings include both packaged and fresh treats, as well as special holiday treats, like Santa Claws Cookie and Christmutt Tree Cake.

“We are excited to offer this innovative brand to our independent pet customers as a bright and refreshing addition to their treat assortment,” said Renee Pace, senior director of merchandising at Phillips Pet Food & Supplies. “We are thrilled to partner exclusively with the Three Dog Bakery team offering a great new line of products to our retailers.”
