About PowerBark


Hunger is a great motivator. Properly providing for our most loyal family members is what drove Leslie Fhima to create a whole new market in the world of dog food with the introduction of an original concept – a convenient, healthy meal replacement bar for canines.


It was while working as a personal trainer that Leslie came up with the concept of PowerBark. You see, Leslie was easily able to refuel with the abundance of portable and convenient energy bars, meal replacement options, and other snacks available for humans. The pickings were pretty slim for her beloved pup Sadie. 


PowerBark, is a 100% complete, balanced, natural, and vegetarian dog food bar that animal lovers can provide to dogs anywhere, anytime.  This delicious and nutritious meal provides complete nutritional adequacy for adult dogs as guided by AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles.


PowerBark contains no gluten, wheat, soy, or corn. Bars are great to take on trips, hiking, camping, keep in the car for unexpected delays, and include wherever life’s adventures carry you and your canine companion.
