What kind of dog is that?

This is our most frequently asked question! Otis is a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon, and a very good boy.

Is this a replacement for my usual dog food?

Backpack Bars can tide your dog over in a pinch, but they’re not formulated as a complete and balanced food. The bars should be used as a supplement on active days.

How long will these last?

Unopened bars will be best within a year. Feed opened bars within a day or two.

Why does my dog need snacks?

Dogs only maintain 1-2% of their body weight in glucose stores, and rely on fatty acids to fuel spikes in activity. We use healthy, energy-dense fats from sources like fish oil (high in Omega-3s), peanut butter, eggs, and coconut oil to meet their increased energy demands on active days.

How should I use Backpack Bars?

Use Backpack Bars to fuel up before exercise starts, break off smaller pieces to maintain energy during exercise, or use to refuel after a fun day outside! We like to break them up to use as training treats or nail trim rewards too.
