Ever heard of a dog barkery serving homemade treats for your fur babies? Don’t feel guilty about feeding your pet dogs store-bought treats. Most of these have preservatives, making them an unhealthy choice for your pets. Hooch and Bailey‘s is a pet bakery located in Thrippunithura, Kochi. It’s the perfect place to buy homemade, gourmet dog treats.
How it started?
Jaya Lakshmi Deepak started pursuing baking after completing her PG in Law. She started a home baking venture selling desserts like brownies, muffins, and celebration cakes in 2012. It was called Sugar Craft and continued till 2018.
The idea for a pet bakery struck her when her pet dog Bailey started developing skin issues due to food allergies. “I stopped feeding her store-bought treats and started looking for healthier alternatives. But I didn’t find anyone who made customizable treats. So I decided to make it using non-allergic ingredients,” shares Jaya. Her friends and family loved the idea and this encouraged her to start with Hooch and Bailey’s in 2019. Since it was difficult to manage both the ventures, she discontinued Sugar Craft.
What’s special here?
