My real and honest goal as a mom (and just as an average person) is to make people happy, and show loving respect to them and their pets. Being honest and educating people about the needs of their pet's health and well being. Though we provide healthy treats; we have found that this business has brought us way more than that.
We strive to run our business with integrity and dedication to people. Being an example of what our faithful friends have taught us. We have been given the gift to really get to know people; amazing people that (I know this sound cheesy) have changed us for the better. Not until I really opened my eyes did I notice the many stories people were sharing, saying that we had touched their lives for the better in some way shape or form.
Our biggest goal is that we can be a striving company with out any gouging prices, and that we can apply the many amazing traits of our pets to our small business, such as their amazing loyalty. With each bag we sell, we are growing towards our goal of making a change in the lives of pets and their owners. We love our customers. We love their pets.
Our Story ( LOL, did you grab your cup of coffee?)
Walk by Faith Doggie Bakery truthfully came as a huge surprise; turning life's direction into the most amazing path I could ever be traveling on. A path that feels more right when we are walking by faith and trusting that grounding myself will help me live with the qualities that my Faith Doggie was teaching me (chill out, always be happy & love people).
After a very tough journey, I was striving to better myself so that I could help others know that their struggles are not just meaning & painful. Making my life more crazy; as single mom of a high-schooler (LOL, is that a word?) taking classes for Behavior Health & Ethics, working full-time teaching, and struggling with the ups & downs of years of Fibromyalgia (which I should know how to control by now but it always knocks you on your butt when you least expect it). As I noticed my dog Faith's quality of life decreasing, I searched for a way to help her.
I discovered that making homemade treats with quality ingredients helped her to lose weight, to get rid of her random hot spots, and helped her to get off the couch without crying. Its amazing how much of a difference using natural and healthy treats can make.
While studying for my second degree, I received encouragement from a friend to put my treats out into the world. Soon after I started to sell in the local Strawberry Festival, where it was easy to see how much people loved giving their pets something healthy, natural, and locally made.
Our treats were such a hit that we decided to start selling in some stores after getting offers from so many different places. We are picky about where to put our treats because we wanted to sell in a place that had a passion for the health of pets and not just about making money.
Now having our treats located in many different stores we are so proud of what Walk by Faith Doggie Bakery has become and what we will continue to grow into.
