Harry Barker Dog Treat Tins Help Preserve Our Planet’s Oceans

You’ll love these retro tins with a dual-purpose, and your pup will sit for the treats.

Come, sit, stay. Communicating with your dog and getting the desired response is one of the most fulfilling parts of being a pet parent. Giving a treat for a job well done is also fun. Here’s an edible reward you should think about adding to the mix: Harry Barker grilled cheese and chicken chowder biscuits.

The delicious nibbles are baked in the USA and come in a retro-style tin that’s made with recycled steel. You can also hand-wash and reuse the tin to hold homemade treats, small toys, or waste baggies. But before you even grab the first bone-shaped biscuit for Fido, your purchase will help fund Mote Marine Laboratory, an independent marine research institute in Sarasota, Florida. The organization is admired by Harry Barker founder and former Ford model Carol Perkins, who started making dog bathrobes, beds, toys, and other accessories when she was recovering from a serious illness back in the mid-’90s.

Now, Harry Barker’s line had expanded to include everything from collars and leashes to bath products, and totes made with eco-friendly fabrics and materials. And proceeds from other such purchases go toward Canines for Veterans.

As far as the biscuits themselves, they’re made with all-natural ingredients such as barley and rice flours, molasses, and dried eggs. Dog lovers may choose between two flavors of crunchy dog biscuits: grilled cheese (red tin) or chicken chowder (blue tin). The coastal biscuit tin is $14 for 12 oz.
