Bark to Basics

The Bark to Basics product team was created in 2002, after our founder spent several years studying pet nutrition in an effort to help her Yellow Lab, Lucy. Today, we remain an independent family owned business that has grown into a 6 state territory, serving independent pet retailers, day care/kennels, veterinary hospitals and groomers in TX, MO, KS, OK, AR and LA. We deliver daily out of two warehouses, one in Kansas City and on in Houston.

Bark to Basics product team carefully selects brands based on type, quality and source of ingredients; production facilities; processing standards and dedication to independent pet specialty. We believe these principles create the point-of-difference that's needed to ensure the success and longevity of the independent pet retailer, which will ultimately benefit pets and those who love them.
