TESTIMONIALS

OUR 5 PAW REVIEWS

Had a wonderful experience today at Smilin Dog Bakery. The owner is so friendly and transparent about the process of making the food and makes helpful suggestions for your dog. They are reasonably priced and have accessories and treats no where else can be found. they offer samples and of the two samples my dog tried today… he loved them!

My dogs love every treat that We have tried so far. I have a small dog and a large dog and they both have their own favorites- and one of them is very picky when it comes to food. I love that I don’t have to worry about ingredients or additives. Also love the convenient location on pine ridge! I can just pop in to pickup more treats for my furballs.

This wonderful “bakery”, is all about our furry friends and their optimum health. All the ingredients are natural and full of nutrition, not too mention just plain fun! Having cooked paleo, I found these products to be 100% paleo. I know this is important to anyone who follows the paleo lifestyle, and encourages this healthy choice for their pets as well. What a find! You must go, Teresa, the owner and her staff will not disappoint.

Stopped in to get a bday treat for our Coco, walked out with a “cupcake” (that included a candle!!) that she LOVED!!!

Love this place!! Excellent information and great experience!

OUR STORY

My motto has always been “If you don’t like something don’t
complain about it, do something about it”!

The truth is, my sweet dog Cootie was the driving force behind starting “Smilin’ Dog Bakery. In 2012, I noticed my dog Cootie had no interest in food or treats; he lived for Frisbee but that was it. I started to take a better look at what I was feeding him and realized after much research on dog nutrition/health, it was all on me. What a wakeup call! My beautiful active border collie was being fed Purina Dog Chow along with Milk Bones & Beggin’ Strips YUCK!

It took hours of research to find that dogs today need so much more than what the majority of unknowing dog owners were giving them. Now it made sense, his non interest in food and itchy skin were the direct result of my ignorance.

I started with cookies and it snowballed from there. Fresh lean protein became the obvious candidate to grow my product line. I can’t tell you how many times I failed before creating the best recipe for success, it was so exciting with each new product to try on my (three) dogs.

With much soul searching and encouragement from my biggest fan and supporter, my husband Tim, we decided to open our retail location in Naples 2015.

It has been a labor of love with so many hours of hard work and dedication, but it has been worth it. I feel blessed every day to come to a place where I get to meet caring dog owners and their dogs looking to find something their dog will love and they can trust is yummy AND healthy.

March 2018 my old guy Cootie is turning 14, slowing down but still has a twinkle in his eyes. Boomer and Lucy round out the crazy canine counterparts and Baby and Reeney are our middle aged felines. We love each one of them along with Joe who passed in 2016.

Yes Cootie, I owe it all to you.

My #1 objective is to keeping my customers and their furry best friend healthy and happy.

Please stop in and let us help you make the best choice for your dog and cat.

Thanks for visiting our store!
