Cakes For Dogs

If there was a bakery in your town that baked cakes and cupcakes specifically for dogs only, would you buy them?

I'm talking items like this :

I would, as long as the ingredients are clearly listed. I would only buy them for special occasions though, like birthdays.

I have bought items in the past like that from Pet Boutiques unfortunately I need to drive about 40 minutes to get there.

I'm thinking about starting my own business because I'm tired of being unemployed and not being able to find work!!

I used to be a baker/cake decorator but there's TOO MANY bakeries here for humans and barely any for dogs and as far as I can see, the pet boutiques only sell the cookies with icing on them.

I could most certainly list all the ingredients I use, it would be all natural food.

There's a few flavours I have in mind... peanut butter... banana...bacon... maybe even cherry! I saw one recipe that even uses ground beef.

My dogs may enjoy being test subjects haha.

The golden retriever cookies are fantastic!

I think it would be a great idea to start a dog bakery business in your area.

I would, again if the ingredients were listed so you knew what was in them. Again would do it for special occasions like bdays and gotcha days etc!

Did you make the items in the pictures? Those are awesome!

I would think you would need to be in a higher end area with a lot of foot traffic, close to a doggy daycare or vet or training facility would be ideal. Maybe even see if you could get a few places to sell your items to see how it goes in the way of sales before going into a lease of a building and remodel.

I almost forgot to answer you real question! I would only buy for special occasions as well, unless it was something I went by often then I might buy more often.


Before you speak:THINK; T-Is it True? H-Is it Helpful? I-Is it Inspiring? N-Is it Necessary? K-Is it Kind?

It looks like it's pretty even that some would and some wouldn't!

I plan on doing it from home and just having people place order via phone/web at first to see how it goes because it won't cost me anything except ingredients that way, and that's pretty cheap!

I found a great website that has pretty much every breed of cookie cutter so I may get a few of the popular breeds.

I think I'll focus on cookies at first since they'd probably be the most popular then have the option for people to order cupcakes and cakes on special occasions.

I get cookies for my guys on holidays.
I have gotten a cake in the past. A bunch of us got puppies at the same time so we threw them a birthday party when they all turned 1!

Three dog bakery has tons of stores around and I think they do pretty good business.
