The idea about opening my very own dog bakery was developed simply from the love of my own dog, a little Boston terrier named Bilbi. When I left home she was given to me as a gift. She quickly became my priority, I wanted only the best for her. I spent a lot of my time behind books and on the internet, learning about dog nutrition, reaching out to veterinarians and doing my own research which led me to believe our market doesn’t offer what I consider the best I can give to my dog. That’s why one day I started baking my own dog treats, making my own recipes only from the best, 100% natural ingredients.
At first I was baking only for my own dog, but later I started baking for the dogs owned by my friends too. One of them was an owner of a pet shop and offered to try selling my treats to the public. She is to blame that everything turned into something more serious. She found the concept of homemade and natural treats for dogs very interesting so we launched the first batch of my treats for sale as an experiment. The treats quickly stole the show, they were a hit with the customers, their feedback was amazing and the rest was history.
We started with a small pet shop in Maribor (Slovenia) in June 2013, after that we opened another pet shop in our capital city Ljubljana (Slovenia) and a franchise pet shop in Zagreb (Croatia). Two years later in 2015 we signed for and opened two new franchise pet shops in Novi Sad and Belgrade (Serbia) and second pet shop in Maribor (Slovenia). Later that year we opened our first franchise pet shop in Trieste (Italy) and we have plans to open more in Sweden, Germany, Austria, etc.
How are our dog treats different from others?
Our products are 100% natural, made from high quality human grade ingredients, they don’t contain any preservatives, additives, flavor enhancements or food colouring. They have no added salt and sugar, they are made out of human grade meats and locally grown fruits and vegetables. There is definitely no bone meal, by-products or added fats and ash.
Since our homemade dog treats are low calorie they are appropriate for dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages. They are great even for dogs who have problems with digestion, allergies and have to be on a diet. They are made with love and care for a happy, sound and long life of our four legged best friends.
Our bakery uses only the finest ingredients that are picked out due to their top quality and approved by the veterinarians. Well balanced compounds offer your dog a delicious mixture that will positively influence its health and liveliness.
