About Us
Store owners Gregg & Melissa Bernhardt with their golden retriever, Luke

After cringing far too many times as we read the ingredients labels on some of the most popular dog treat lines in the business, we decided it was time for a change. We couldn't fathom feeding our beloved golden retrievers things like "animal by-products," "monosodium glutamate (MSG)," or many other unpleasant, and vague, ingredients. Even the so-called "healthy" treats left us skeptical.

That's why we started Bag of Bones Barkery—to offer dogs everywhere a healthy, dog-gone delicious alternative to the bland, sometimes unrecognizable, treats you find in chain pet stores.

We use real ingredients (bacon, cheese, banana, peanut butter, and honey, just to name a few). Browse the ingredients list on any of our treats, and you'll never find any additives or preservatives of any kind. And we intend to keep it that way. We wouldn't offer anything to your dog that we wouldn't wave around in front of our own pets. We mix, roll, cut, and bake every item in our NJ store!

Since starting our business in 2005 and opening our first location in 2007, our goal has always been to provide healthy, lip-smacking, tail-wagging treats for barkers all over. In 2011, we moved to a larger location in Mercerville Shopping Center, 364 Route 33, Hamilton, NJ to serve you better! Whether you've got a Mini Schnauzer or a Mastiff, we're sure they'll love a bag of our bones—paws down!
