Now independent retailers throughout the southeast and across to Texas can call their Phillips distributor rep if they’d like to carry Hound & Gatos natural pet food or Charlee Bear natural dog treats. That’s because Gott Pet Products, a family-owned company committed to the health and happiness of pets, recently welcomed Phillips Pet Food & Supplies to its growing national distributor network. Phillips will be responsible for distributing both of these award-winning brands in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
“We’re extremely pleased to announce this new partnership with Phillips,” commented Rob Cadenhead, general manager of Gott Pet Products. “Both of our companies share the same commitment to exceeding customer expectations and providing the very best products for pets.”
Charlee Bear treats are named after a lovable rescue pup who looked just like a teddy bear. Over 25 years later, these “Beary Tasty Treats” are still loved by people and pets from coast to coast. Available in seven flavors, Charlee Bear Original Crunch and Grain Free Crunch are sized right for treating or training and contain less than three calories per treat. The Charlee Bear Grain Free Meaty Bites are the first line of raw, freeze dried meat treats infused with real fruits and vegetables you can see. The newest member of the Charlee Bear family is Bearnola Bites, crunchy granola clusters bursting with aroma and taste. Every treat is made in the USA.
Hound & Gatos offers a full line of natural, animal protein-powered recipes to meet every pet’s dietary needs. Parents who prefer to feed dry diets can choose from six grain free recipes for dogs and cats, as well as two varieties with ancient grains for dogs. Prepared without peas, lentils, chickpeas or white potatoes, these meat-first, simple ingredient recipes feature a medley of superfoods, like blueberries, cranberries, broccoli and dandelion greens. For wet diet aficionados, there are 11 grain-free varieties for dogs and 13 for cats. Each of these recipes is complete and balanced, and formulated with 98% high quality meat, fish and poultry. And just like Charlee Bear products, they’re all made in the USA.
To become a Charlee Bear and Hound & Gatos retailer, retailers located in southeastern states are invited to contact their local Phillips representative or visit www.phillipspet.com/resources/new-customers. Anyone interested in learning more about both of these natural brands is invited to visit www.CharleeBear.com and www.HoundGatos.com.
