Behind the Barkery

This is truly a labor of love for me.  I’m not sure every dog treat maker can state that, but I can.  Dogs are my passion.  Because I am so passionate about dogs, I deeply care about their health and well-being.  So, I started researching canine nutrition and baking my own dog treats in 2001.  In 2015, my vet was intrigued by the treats I was bringing in to reward my dog, during his checkup, as he refused the vet treats.  After that discussion, I decided to launch Snake River Barkery to share my yummy, and healthy, treats with other Pet Parents who want to reward their furbaby with a treat everyday and not have to worry about what those treats are doing to their furbaby’s health.  They’re freshly baked, with whole  and human consumable ingredients, no additives, no preservatives and no sweeteners.  I only use ingredients that are 100% safe for dogs to consume, made with the same safety standards used when cooking human food.   Quality, Safety, Freshness and Flavor are what I focus on for my treats.

Chief Taste Tester - McKinley

McKinley is our newest addition. We brought her home in July 2022 and she's quite the character.  She has really stepped up into her role as Chief Taste Tester, recently, after the passing of our beloved Nacho.  She is definitely more demanding and will woof at me if I take too long to give her a nibble of the batch after I rolled it out. She is also a really good entertainer for us and entertains herself with her toys.  She is our little sassy princess.
Assistant Taste Tester - Dante
March 31, 2023, we adopted Dante from Moonsong Malamute Rescue.  McKinley needed a playmate and they bonded the first time they met.  Dante was terrified of people and anything new and it is taken a lot of work, and treats, to earn his trust.   After 6 months, he is coming out of his shell and settling in with the family and loving his job as the Assistant Taste Tester.
