The heart of Charlee Bear is that we recognize the wonderful bond between dogs and people and we wanted to find a way to nurture that bond and make it deeper.

Over 25 years ago, we set out to develop a healthy, natural, low calorie dog treat that would be so delicious that dogs would respond over and over and would be great for training and rewarding dogs of all sizes and ages. Our Original Charlee Bear® DogTreats were introduced. Charlee Bear was a pioneer in the natural dog treat market.


With the help of veterinarians, food scientists, bakers, trainers, people and dogs, we developed Original Charlee Bear® Dog Treats. Our earliest treats were made by hand in a neighborhood bakery and delivered to stores in our own cars. We don't make our treats by hand anymore because our treats are used by trainers and dog lovers all over the US and Canada.


In response to our devoted customers’ requests, we developed a low-calorie grain-free dog treat with the same love and care that we used to develop our Original Charlee Bear Dog Treats. These treats, Bear Crunch, were introduced in 2014.

We created three great Bear Crunch flavors using turkey, chicken, pork and berries, fruits and veggies. We use chick pea flour, an excellent source of protein. We stuck to simple natural ingredients that are low in calories and high in flavor. Trainers and doggie parents are telling us dogs love these treats. Bear Crunch has a "special LIGHT crunch". Our Grain Free treats are also "Pocket Perfect®" Keep some in your pocket for fun on a walk or outing.

For over 25 years Charlee Bear has been making the bond between people and dogs stronger, one little healthy treat at a time.
