Dechert advised Bregal Partners and TDBBS, a premium natural dog chews and treats company and portfolio company of Bregal Partners, on its sale of TDBBS to Central Garden & Pet, a recognized leader in the pet and garden industry.

This acquisition represents a strategic move for Central Garden & Pet, aligning with their ongoing expansion strategy. It broadens their portfolio within their two core industries, specifically in the growing dog treats and chews category.

Not only are these products designed to keep dogs engaged, but they also promote overall canine health.
