Dog birthday parties are all the rage and why shouldn’t they be? After all, it’s more than just a party – a dog’s birthday marks the day that they entered your life and forever changed it for the better.
If you’re the type of pet parent that loves a good dog birthday bash with cakes for dogs, dog chews and pupcakes – then listen up! We at Bark Butler have curated a list of some of pawsome pet bakers in India, and we’re sharing this list with you. Before we let you browse through our list, let’s take a look at why opting for locally made, fresh baked goods for dogs is better than store-bought products.
Pet Bakers In India Vs Store Bought
There’s no doubt that buying store-bought packaged pet products is convenient. They’re sold at your local grocery store, and you can pick them up while shopping for yourself. However, if you look at the list of ingredients, it’s usually quite clear that a lot of what’s in these products are filled with preservatives and spurious ingredients. At Bark Butler, we believe that if you wouldn’t buy it for yourself, then why get it for your pet?
There are many more advantages of choosing local pet bakers, but we know you’re dying to scroll down if you haven’t already.
So without further ado, here are our favourite pet bakers in India.
Pet Bakers in Bangalore
The Doggy Bakery
In our opinion, ‘The Doggy Bakery’ has the oldest dog food recipes in India. We say this because all the recipes used in this bakery are originally from founder Diya Sikand’s grandmother – who for 70 years fed dogs in her neighbourhood. Isn’t that incredible! Just like hooman bakeries, The Doggy Bakery makes fresh baked goods daily for their loyal customers.
Bark Factor: Apart from original recipes, they have the cutest names for their treats. How can anyone resist names such as wooferdoodle or doggeroons? We at Bark Butler can’t!
Makes: Frozen treats and baked goods
Shipping: Pan India
Order: On their website
Founder of Clever Canine, Yamika, started off as a dog trainer and quickly realised from all the pet parent complaints that there was a scarcity of healthy dog treats and baked goods in India. So, she started to experiment with recipes that she made for her own dog, Pixie. Her naturally flavoured probiotic frozen treats and grain-free biscuits were a hit with Pixie and the rest, as we say, is history!
Bark Factor: two words, frozen treats! They look so good; we’re just as tempted as our doggos to taste them!
