Brown Dog Bakery is your perfect go-to for all of your gourmet doggie needs. After celebrating the holidays, what better way to treat your pet than with a special treat. Brown Dog Bakery is located in Ankeny, about twenty minutes south of Ames, and is owned and operated by Anna Woodcock, an Ankeny resident and dog lover.
When asking Anna what brought her to opening her own dog bakery she laughed, “Actually I couldn’t find a pink collar that I liked at Petsmart for Sophie, so I got to thinking about it.” She mentioned that she used to have to drive to Des Moines to get good dog food and that Petsmart just didn’t have much of a selection, so she figured why not? 3 years later the dog bakery has gained business and Anna can finally have all the selection she wants for dog collars.
This dog bakery offers special treats, toys, collars, leashes as well as holistic dog food to keep your dog as healthy as possible. Brown Dog Bakery aims at feeding your dog the right way with the right foods. Anna explains that similar to humans, dogs need their fruits, vegetables and lean meats, so when searching for the best food for your dog, we have found the perfect place.
Anna claims that the favorite dog treat overall is their peanut butter bon bon, tasting a lot like a Reese’s peanut butter cup. Although it contains a little bit of honey, the bakery aims at using as minimal sugar as possible. All of their products can be consumed by humans, but they aren’t the tastiest to our pallets. There are tons of treats to choose from so check it out for yourself.
