Our rescued dog "Sam" is the inspiration behind our company. Sam was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease in 2013. After we brought him home from the hospital, we decided to start making his treats at home, making sure that we only included natural ingredients. I have a Culinary & Baking background so I decided to put it to use on formulating a healthy and delicious dog treat that was safe for our dog. After numerous failed attempts, and the possibility of throwing in the towel, I found the right color, flavor, and texture. The process wasn't easy, but luckily Sam was living the sweet life sampling treats for every recipe I tested out. My objective was to make a handmade product, use only a handful of raw ingredients, transform them into a delicious treat that is human grade, and finally create treats that are healthy, preservative free but with a long shelf life, and above all... our dog had to love it! We are proud of our product and to be a part of businesses dedicated to changing the way dogs eat so that they can have a healthier and happier life. We hope you like Barketizers, and thank you for supporting us.
