It all started with a rescue dog called Alfie, our adorable Jack Russell Terrier. This lovely little boy turned out to be a very fussy eater, especially with his treats. I could not find any dog treats in the supermarkets or pet shops that he wanted to eat or that I even considered to be healthy. As a result I took to baking my own ‘fancy’ dog treats which I am very happy to say were a great hit….. He absolutely loved them, as did his new four-legged friends.
So armed with the knowledge accrued over many months of research and many, many hours of baking I thought why not build a business to fulfil the gap that I had found in the market for fancy but also healthy dog treats. Within just 6 months I had out-grown my home kitchen so I took the big decision to take on a premises, this would then allow me to keep up with the ever growing demand and to also expand the product range.
I am very proud to say that 3 years in Ruffles Dog Bakery’s Bakery/Cafe in Derby UK and Online Dog Treat Shop is a thriving business. We sell our unique dog treat products to individual customers and retailers both locally and throughout the UK.
It just goes to prove that if you are able to combine a passion with hard work you can find your perfect profession and if you are very lucky a business that fills you with joy everyday.
