Built on a passion for providing pets with healthy treats and compassionate care, Michelle Reeder is redefining the phrase “gone to the dogs” with her new shop, The Barkery.

When was The Barkery founded? I started selling dog treats and cakes from my home in January 2016, and in November 2016, I opened my storefront.

What is The Barkery’s main product or service? The dog bakery is the central part of the business, but we also offer grooming, daycare and boarding.

How are your homemade dog treats  different? All of our treats are handmade by us, using high quality, human-grade ingredients. A large portion of our recipes are grain-free, and all are wheat-free. We use no chemicals or additives. 

What sets your boarding and grooming services apart? Our boarding is suite-only, no cages. Each pet or pet family is housed in its own in-dividual apartment home. Our grooming is top notch, with a groomer who has 22 years in the pet industry and can trim like Edward Scissorhands. We also have many “Spaw Packages” to choose from. Plus, we offer a cage-free daycare concept where dogs get to play in our 1,000-square-foot indoor playroom for about seven hours a day as compared to a typical dog day-care, where the dogs are kenneled the majority of the day and have only a handful of play sessions. 

What’s your favorite thing about your job? The joy in our customer’s face when they see how much love and attention we have for their dog.

How many pets do you have at home? I’ve got three dogs and one cat as well as two “granddogs.”

ON THE HORIZON
For 2017, we want to expand our boarding capacity, add training classes, add dog care seminars, add a “Yappy Hour” and add cat treats.
