Distinctive Dog, a leading manufacturer of healthy dog treats, is proud to announce that it is officially certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Washington State Office of Minority and Women’s Enterprises. Distinctive Dog is majority owned, operated, and controlled by female owner, Tamra Johnson.

“As a woman business owner, I am excited to receive this recognition,” stated Tamra Johnson. “Diversity is important for any business and I view this certification as a commitment to maintaining diversity in my company as well as others I interact with.”

Distinctive Dog launched in 2010 after Tamra developed a healthy line of dog treats with virgin coconut oil. The business began in her home and today Distinctive Dog treats are available through retailers across the United States.

For the past 30 years, the Office of Minority and Women’s Business Enterprises (OMWBE) has been the sole certifying entity of minority and women owned businesses for the state of Washington. The agency, created in 1983 by Senate Bill 3230 (enacted as RCW Chapter 39.19), was designed to improve the participation of minority and women owned businesses in state contracting. In addition, OMWBE has been determining the eligibility of minority and women owned businesses for DBE federal certification under 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 26 and State certifications under Revised Code of Washington (RCW) Chapter 39.19.


  1. Congratulations Tamra! You are truly an inspiration to future women and minority business owners! Quality+Perseverence= Success!
