Attention dogs of the Pacific Northwest, things just got a little sweeter in the form of The Seattle Barkery – a food truck specializing in handmade treats for dogs. While the focus is a canine clientele, the owners of the dogs can also enjoy a small menu of human treats as well.
This is fantastic news for all dog owners out there who want to treat their pets to something special. Now, they can spend a nice day out with their pets, then take a stroll to the Barkery for a treat.
The Seattle Barkery was created and is owned by dog-loving couple, Dawn and Ben Ford. The pair met while working in the restaurant business.
Eventually, they went on to operate a dog-walking business together. And today, they have been able to mix the two worlds together in what is now the Seattle Barkery.
Dawn was the one who originally thought up of The Barkery after numerous store-bought treats got recalled for safety reasons.
Fed up by this, Dawn began to bake her own dog treats and giving them to the dogs that she walked. Her clients’ owners then began to buy the treats off Dawn, and so she began to ponder the idea of starting the Barkery.
The Barkery has now been in operation for five years, and the community’s response has been hugely positive.
Dog owners are flocking to the food truck with their pets for some quality treats.
The Barkery offers dogs a huge selection of treats such as duck necks or puppy pretzels – they even do cake orders as well!
Dawn prepares most of the baked goods herself. She has a group of dedicated quality control in the form of her own three rescue dogs.
Rescue dogs are something very special to both Dawn and Ben, which is why 100% of the tips received at the Barkery are donated to Old Dog Haven and any leftover treats go directly to Seattle Animal Shelter.
The Barkery has its own Instagram where they share pictures of their treats as well as some of their customers enjoying those treats. You can follow them in order to stay up to date on their latest news.
