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.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • The girls love the cake! Always a fun day when we order from the barkery!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Happy Dog. I grew up ordering cookies and an annual birthday cake for our family dog. As our dog got older, the stews were one of the only foods she'd happily eat. Now that I'm older and moved across the country, I order the cookies for my extremely picky dog who is allergic to most animal based protein. He absolutely loves them, and they are within his strict allergy diet. The owners and employees are so incredibly kind and helpful, too!

  • Love this place so much! We ordered the cake completely online and the process was so easy. Our dog Zelda loved it so much she was trying to jump on the counter to get her paws on it early! And how adorable are the colors?! All the staff were so nice and friendly as well 🙂
