RUFF BARS active dog energy protein bars

Our Story

Lick mouth Hiking dog protein energy barThe inspiration to create RUFF BARS came out of a desire for an easy to carry, nutritionally appropriate food bar for our dogs while on the trail hiking and backpacking. Most dog snacks or on-the-go meals on the market today are heavily based on cheap fillers like potatoes, oats, legumes and beans such as chickpeas, lentils and peanuts. Those kinds of foods are alright for omnivorous humans but not healthy for your carnivorous canine pal to ingest on a regular basis.

With the assistance of a Veterinarian and a Naturopathic Doctor our bar was created, composed of top notch ingredients that not only fulfills your pup's nutritional requirements, but is quick and convenient too. We believe your dog deserves the very best so we use only antibiotic and hormone free proteins or wild caught salmon and organic fruits, veggies, seeds and spices. Dogs are natural carnivores so don’t compromise. Give them the very best with RUFF BARS!


We keep it simple with whole food ingredients and no preservatives. Just what you would want to eat.

RUFF BARS are a versatile product essential for any active dog. Whether it be a convenient mid hike snack or a lightweight nutrition packed protein bar for sustained endurance while backpacking, you can go the extra hours knowing that your dog is performing at their highest level. For busy days use them as an on-the-go meal replacement bar. Have a puppy? Start their nutrition off right by using RUFF BARS as the perfect training treat.

“When dogs exert themselves they need to cool off by panting. Panting uses an enormous amount of energy. Giving your dog high quality digestible protein is paramount during these periods for optimal performance.”
