As a dog owner himself, Tony was tired of seeing the long ingredients listed on the back of big brand dog treats and wanted a healthier option for his pups, Harley and Bella. Sadly, those "healthier" options came with hefty price tags and STILL contained too many ingredients. That's when the light bulb turned on and Tony went to work, crafting and creating healthy, all natural dog treats with minimal ingredients that are still affordable for the everyday American.
What started as a dream in the kitchen of an RV and selling treats at a single Farmers' Market, Harley's Treats USA has grown by leaps and bounds in just over a year. We are now available at five Farmers' Markets in Washington and Arizona and will soon be opening our very own storefront in Arizona. Throughout all this growth we have stuck to Tony's vision: limited, natural, and healthy ingredients at an affordable price while hiring US Military Veterans and their family members.
After 32 years of combined service in the Minnesota Army National Guard (8 years) and the United States Army (24 years), Tony is focusing on his real passion; dogs and ensuring they receive the best quality treats and food at an affordable price. Along with his wife, Theresa, they are the bedrock of Harley's Treats USA and keep the team and family together to provide the greatest quality service to you and your pets!
Matt is a graduate of Auburn University and has over 18 years of combined service between the Alabama National Guard and the United States Army. He's been an integral part of our team since coming on board in July 2021 and handles our social media footprint, website, and Farmers Markets in Washington State. Along with his wonderful wife, Christine, their two children, Caleb and Allison, and their pups Lucy Lou and Lola, they add a REELy fun dynamic to Harley's Treats USA!
Harley's Treats USA remembers and honors Fallen Veterans and their Survivors through donations to Gold Star Peak, Inc. from sales of our all natural dog treats.
Gold Star Peak was named to honor the families who lost a loved one while serving in the military.
Mission: To bring Veterans and Survivors together in nature to remember and honor the fallen and bring healing to all.
Vision: To improve the wellbeing of military Veterans and the Gold Star Families of service members who have given their lives in time of war, through education, support and advocacy.
Families can also bring their fur babies with them when they climb the mountain.
We're happy to say that we are official sponsors for the 2022 David E. Grange, Jr. Best Ranger Competition
The competition has evolved over the past thirty years from one that was originally created to salute the best two-man “buddy” team in the Ranger Department at Fort Benning. Every year the competition is reviewed and tweaked, to what is currently in place for this year, to determine the best two-man team from the entire United States Armed Forces.
The Best Ranger Competition is held on Fort Benning and is open to the public. For more information call 706-718-0300 or ARTB at 706-544-6451.
The National Ranger Association, Inc. was formed in 1998 and is governed by a board of six. The Association was established to recognize distinguished members in the Ranger community and to promote the values established in the Ranger Creed. The National Ranger Association helps to raise funds to support The Best Ranger Competition, The Ranger Hall of Fame and the Distinguished Member of the Brigade. Contact Travis Pheanis for more information on how you can contribute to The National Ranger Association.
