The charges of attempted robbery relate to an incident on June 9 when two men approached a man in Owen Close, on Wellingborough's Queensway estate, threatening him with violence and threatening to steal his dogs.
Stray, of Woodlands, Grange Park, has been charged with an additional offence of having a firearm with intent to commit an offence.
Snoad, of Dore Close, Blackthorn, has been charged with an additional offence of possessing a blade in a public place.
They are both due to appear at Northampton Crown Court on July 28.
