The Chesapeake Bay Dog Company, maker of the BAYDOG brand of canine adventure gear, has recently partnered with Georgia-based distributor Southeast Pet. Beginning in July, BAYDOG retailer partners in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas and Tennessee will be serviced by Southeast’s two distribution centers.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with a company like Southeast Pet,” said BAYDOG founder and CEO, Barton O’Brien. “Southeast is the ideal partner for BAYDOG. Our growth strategy hinges on partnering with regional distributors that will protect the brand for our retail partners, and Southeast is best in class.”
Pete Cooper, VP of Sales and Marketing at Southeast, has been working with the BAYDOG team since the brand launched in 2018. “One reason we really like BAYDOG is their dedication to supporting their independent brick and mortar customers. They don’t sell on Amazon or Chewy, and they guarantee their products 100 percent,” said Cooper. “At Southeast, we view it as our job to present our customers with new and innovative products that are fairly priced and differentiated in the market. We think BAYDOG does just that.”
