Getting Started: Puddles Barkery

Kari Kalway

It all started with a puppy. But not just any puppy, Kora is my very first pet. She is an adorable Siberian Husky with a mind of her own. And I wanted to spend as much time with her as I could. To do this, starting my own business seemed like a good start. Looking at my passions and strengths -singing, swimming, baking, cooking, psychology, and the enjoyment in sharing my passions with others- lead me to consider opening a dog bakery. 

Naturally, Kora had no problem becoming my official treat-tester. I am having a blast creating treats that she absolutely loves, like Milo & Otis, Mini Pup-Cakes with Cheddar and Carrot, and An-Apple-a-Day to name a few. It is amazingly cute to watch her spin around in circles three times in a row without even being asked, just because she knows I have one of her favorite treats. Sometimes she will do anything to get that treat.

Seattle is a great place to start a food-based business. Local farms and other food producers pride themselves at having great products. The sense of community is best displayed in Seattle's Farmer's Market scene. I love having the opportunity to walk down the street on Market days and pick out some delicious produce and other tasty treats.

Producing healthy treats with quality ingredients is a big priority. But so is making attractive, gourmet goodies for my companion. While you will find everyday treats at Puddles, you can also expect to find speciality treats for that extra special occasion. Between making unique treats, choosing a fun name, creating descriptions and perfecting the treats to look their best, it’s a great opportunity to let my creative side shine.
