Cheryl and Beth




Owners Cheryl and Beth Staley are sisters who fulfilled their dreams of working with their dogs and owning their own business. Both left the corporate world and opened Happy Dog Barkery in April 2004.

Beth has baked since childhood and it was a natural step to start baking for her dogs when she found her own lab had allergies.

Cheryl and Beth pride themselves on making the finest treats around. All dogs that visit get to try some liver cake and even the finicky dogs beg for more.

Beth is active in lab rescue and you will frequently find a foster dog behind the counter.

Lulu crossed the Rainbow Bridge in February 2010. We will miss her dearly. Here is her story:
Lulu is the last foster who found her permanent home with Beth. Lulu is an 8 year old female found starving to death as a stray. Her time was up in the shelter and Lulu was lucky enough to get into Great Lakes Lab Rescue. While Beth always has every intention of adopting out her fosters, Lulu worked her way into Beth's heart. She is now fattening up on all the great Happy Dog treats. We like to say she hit the jackpot! I think her smile tells it all from then to now.

Thanks mom!

Pets: I have two amazing dogs: Annie, who we think is an Australian Cattle Dog / Basenji mix, and Maxwell (“Maxie”) the Border Collie.

Pet’s favorite treat(s) from HDB: Max’s favorite treats are Spinach Pies, but he drools for whatever I bring home from HDB! Annie prefers anything with liver – roll-ups, cake, or crunchy biscuits.

Favorite thing to do with my pet: Annie, Max and I love to be outside together. Walks around town, in the woods, or at the park are always a joy, especially when I bring a frisbee for Maxie. Their favorite thing is to visit me at work at Happy Dog!

Length of time worked at HDB: I’ve had the pleasure of working at the Barkery since it first opened its doors in April 2004.
