About Happy Dog Barkery

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 dog rescue and you will frequently find a foster dog behind the counter.

  • We could not be more impressed by a business. This year we decided to celebrate our dogs 10th Birthday and were referenced to the Happy Dog Barkery. We ordered a custom Birthday Cake and after picking up, we saw a small letter error. After calling and informing them of the minor error, despite it not being a huge issue, they still decided to send us an apology package. As you can see in the above photos, Samantha absolutely loved her cake, and the humans loved watching her eat it just as much. If you’re thinking of throwing your dog a birthday, look no further, this place is truly exceptional.

  • I am going to miss this place for my dog they are very welcoming they even made my cakes for my dog. Unfortunately they hired an employee name Lance long hair guy. He gives really strong stares at my wife everyone smiles in the store expect for him. looks at my wife like he's never seen a female before this is not the first time. It got so uncomfortable that we decided to go find our products somewhere else.
