The world just got a little bit sweeter.The Seattle Barkery is a food truck for dogs that sells delicious, handmade treats. While there is a small menu for their two-legged companions, the food truck is primarily aimed towards peckish pups.
While some people may wonder if the world really needs a doggie food truck, every dog owner knows how much our furry friends deserve an extra lovely treat once in a while. They do so much for us, and it is always a wonderful feeling when we can do something special for them in return.
The Seattle Barkery is owned and created by Dawn and Ben Ford. The dog-loving couple met while working in the restaurant business and then went on to run a dog-walking business together. Now, those two worlds have come together in the shape of the Seattle Barkery.
The Barkery was originally Dawn’s idea. After a number of store-bought dog treats had been recalled for safety reasons, Dawn started baking her own treats to give to the dogs she walked. The dogs’ owners started buying the treats from Dawn and she started toying with the idea of starting the Barkery.
The Barkery has now been up and running for five years and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Dog-lovers flock to the truck to give their pups tasty, quality treats.
The Barkery offers a wide selection of treats, anything from duck necks to beautiful puppy pretzels. They even take cake orders.
Dawn prepares most of the baked stuff herself and her three rescue puppies are her very willing test subjects.
Rescue dogs are close to Dawn and Ben’s hearts. 100% of the tips that the Barkery receives goes to Old Dog Haven and any leftover treats are donated to Seattle Animal Shelter.
The Barkery shares beautiful pictures of their yummy treats and happy customers on their Instagram for those of us who like to stay up to date on what they’re doing.
