As the founder, I am passionate about dogs; I have rescued and fostered many four legged friends starting when I was in college.
In 2009, I adopted a Great Dane, Moose, who developed Polyneuropathy (nerve disease) at a very early age. He had pet insurance so he was able to receive the best of veterinarian care, to include Sixth Street Vet and The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, throughout his short, seven year life. He endured countless surgeries, rehabilitation and in an attempt to control his horrible pain.
As a fun and creative diversion I would bake treats for him since he could not eat most grains or processed foods. Many of the store-bought “packaged” dog treats were toxic to his system. Over many years I experimented with countless recipes to entice his selective pallet and I created treats that his sensitive digestive system could tolerate as well as to hide the many pills he had to take each day.
From my precious time with Moose, Bark n Bake was born. We are located in Jacksonville, FL and are certified through the Florida Department of Agriculture #Z003463. All of our organic, preservative free, homemade items are baked and shipped throughout the United States daily.
Our human grade food contains FRESH GROUND Oats and do not contain Wheat, Soy, Corn, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt, Sugar, additives, unnatural preservatives or artificial coloring. The bright colors are derived from fresh, wholesome ingredients! We have developed our recipes to create healthy dog treats that taste great , are nutritious, easy to digest, low in calories, cholesterol and saturated fats, and have a low glycemic load. Why did we choose certain ingredients? Pumpkin is low in calories, loaded with Vitamin A and a good source of iron and Vitamins C, K and E. High in fiber, it acts as a natural digestive aid. FRESH eggs are a quality source of digestible protein supplying all of the essential amino acids. Whole grain oats have many benefits including a good source of fiber, B vitamins and important minerals such as iron, manganese, phosphorus and magnesium. Flax seed meal is a rich source of Omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, iron and more. We use EXTRA VIRGIN Olive Oil instead of the cheaper canola oil. GOOD quality olive oil is high in Omega 6 fatty acids, Vitamins E (Alpha Tocopherol is a natural antioxidant) and K.
We offer a variety of tasty puppy and dog treats made with all natural, organic ingredients without pesticides and additives. We use human quality natural ingredients such as barley, oats, apples, bananas, blueberries, carrots, green beans, honey, kale, peanut butter, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, spinach, grass fed beef and hormone free chicken to create delicious and healthy treats that both you and your furry friend will love.
All our doggies delights are baked daily in small batches and our treats are ALWAYS FRESH! We have many homemade selections just for you.
