With the goal of providing Homemade Organic Pet Treats that everyone could afford, Shawn Sherry and Anthony Newman founded The Barkers Dozen in 2009. In the midst of the 2008 pet food scare, they saw an opportunity to start a local and organic dog treat business where customers could feel safe and secure about what they fed to that loyal member of their family.

Our organic dog treats use the highest-quality, human-grade organic ingredients and are made in a variety of shapes and sizes to satisfy any furry friend. Our gourmet dog treats are made on demand and in small batches to ensure the freshest product possible for our customers, without using artificial preservatives. Feeling a responsibility to the world in which we all live, its packaging has always been renewable or recyclable in nature.

You can check out our current organic pet treats on our Products page, our specials in our Online Store, or pick them up at your local retailer.

The Barkers Dozen celebrated its first year in business in 2010, and to mark the occasion, redesigned its Web site and rolled out an interactive, virtual storefront, as well as The Daily Barker blog and e-newsletter.

In 2011, Sherry assumed sole ownership of The Barkers Dozen, following a year of historic growth for the company. Later that year, continuing its belief in social responsibility, The Barkers Dozen began utilizing staff from the Aditus group, a non-profit which helps those with special needs to be able to enter the work force.
