Roaming gourmet food trucks are all the rage with humans… so it’s no wonder why the trend is catching on with pet parents and their pooches.

Seattle residents are crazy about their dogs. That’s why a food truck that serves fresh baked “pupcakes” makes perfect business sense.

The Seattle Barkery is a new dog-only food truck that bakes up drool-inducing treats for hungry pooches. You’ll find it at local dog parks, office building parking lots, farmer’s markets and private events. The truck has been making pit stops for almost a year, and business is booming. That may have something to do with the facts that pets are overtaking the place of kids in these urbanites lives. And of course, these pet parents bring their dogs with the wherever they go and treat them whenever possible.

Husband and wife team Ben and Ben Ford owns and operates The Seattle Barkery, and so far, it’s only competing with a handful of other like-minded individuals. In fact, many petless people mistake their goods for human treats and buy a pupcake for themselves. Just a few of the noms found in the lineup include air-fried chicken feet and duck neck, bacon “pupcakes,” mini cheesy doughnuts, pumpkin pretzels and peanut butter-banana cookies.

If you’re in the Seattle area, be on the lookout for The Seattle Barkery and be sure to treat your pooch to one of delectable offerings!
