About

Growing up, I never had pets in my family. My siblings and I were allergic. I never understood the bond between people and their dogs. They’re your pet, not a member of the family! Oh, how wrong I was. It wasn’t until I moved out of my parents house after college and got my baby, Lucy, a sweet brown Lop bunny, that I realized what I had been missing. She has become such a companion in less than a year that I can only imagine the relationship people must have with their pets that they had grown up with. And there has been no greater bond that I have witnessed than owners and their dogs.

I studied at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI where I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Baking and Pastry. I realized fairly quickly since graduating that restaurant life was not the life for me. I enjoy making birthday and wedding cakes in my kitchen for hours on end for my friends and family. I realized what’s most important to me is bringing joy to others through my baking. And what better way to make peoples' day than to provide something delicious and nutritious for their best friends! Nothing in pet or grocery stores is good enough for the dogs of many people close to me. I love the excitement a beautiful package in the mail evokes and it is even more so with the added delight of seeing your dog's name right on the treat! I wanted to offer all natural, handcrafted, delicious dog treats that feel like you are opening a box of gourmet chocolates.
