Clayton, NY (May 2, 2012) – The Barkers Dozen, based in Chicopee, Massachusetts, has been named the official dog treat of Seaway Splash presented by TIMIS set for June 15-17 in Clayton, New York.
Seaway Splash is a DockDogs sanctioned competition event.
Founded in 2009, The Barkers Dozen (www.thebarkersdozen.com) treats use the highest-quality, human-grade organic ingredients and are made in a variety of shapes and sizes to satisfy any furry friend. The gourmet dog treats are made on demand and in small batches to ensure the freshest product possible for our customers, without using artificial preservatives.
The Barkers Dozen will have representatives on-site during the event with free product samples and exclusive offers.
"We are proud and excited to partner with Seaway Splash and Sailing Seaway Clayton for this new DockDogs event," said President/CEO and Founder of The Barkers Dozen, Shawn Sherry. "The Barkers Dozen's organic pet treats are a perfect way to reward DockDog competitors or any dog - wholesome, handmade treats that help bring out the best in your pup, from dock to daily life."
“It is exciting to partner with a brand such as The Barkers Dozen, which has a strong interest in our dog’s health and nutrition. Through their support of this event, we look to expose their growing brand to the people of upstate New York,” said festival organizer Michael Folsom. “Dog treats and a dog competition go hand-in-hand.”
