*Why was it started?
My husband, Scott, and I started this one-of-a-kind business after experiencing several health related issues in the family. Our sweet Australian Shepherd, Ruger, sadly lost his battle with Lymphoma, and I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 24 years old. So, we went on a “health lock-down” and started making healthy human treats and treats for our dog. It also helped us keep our minds off of things at night after work, and stay as busy as possible. We started giving them out to friends and family, and they were a hit! Soon, Smart Cookie Dog Treats was born.
We have now grown into a full customized treat company with treats made for each dog’s lifestyle. “Create a treat, nourish a lifestyle.” We believe that in addition to being a tasty reward, treats and the ingredients in them should serve a healthy functional purpose. This is why in addition to our Barking Blends dog treats, perfect for any Survivor, Sports Dog, or Prima Dogna, we let our customers select the protein, carb, fruit & veggie they want in their dog’s treats. For the most discerning taste buds, we also offer Rabbit Jerky which is a “smart” hypoallergenic, high-protein and low-fat choice for your dog. The only ingredient is 100% USA rabbit (bones included!) Now they can eat like their ancestors: pure ingredients, no preservatives, just like they were born to do.
Smart Cookies can be either purchased online at www.smartcookietreats.com, and are shipped around the world. They can also be found throughout Colorado pet boutiques. Additionally, we are proud to have Colorado’s first food truck for dogs! The Smart Cookie Cart is our dog treat vending tricycle or “treat trike.” We visit dog parks, farmers’ markets, events, breweries, and other dog-friendly locations throughout Colorado, with more locations coming soon!
*Tell me about your pets?
Sam is our little 3 year old Golden Retriever, and CTO (Chief Tasting Officer) She is just about the sweetest dog there is… absolutely loves everything. We’re pretty sure that’s all she knows: love… and treats. We also have Bentley, our 3 year old Savannah/Bengal cat. He is also a big fan of Smart Cookies (especially the rabbit) and has even learned to “sit” and high-five. He is Sam’s BFF.
