Our story...

Take a dog-loving chef, his dog-loving, chef-loving lady, and a mother-in-law and you have the folks behind Barkley’s Bistro. The idea of chef-inspired treats was one we thought about a lot, but as more and more of the dogs we loved were affected by “bad“ treats from overseas – made with ingredients we couldn’t pronounce let alone would eat – we knew we had to make a change. We make treats with names and ingredients that are familiar to dog owners. Our Hot Dish is a riff on the classic Minnesota casserole with ingredients like sweet potatoes, kale, beef broth, carrots, and string beans…yes, that’s the same ingredients that go into the people version. Colin, our chef du canine, explains it best: We wanted to bring the love back to the dog for the love they give us. We do it everyday day by making healthy, wholesome treats that we are proud of. Of course, someday we hope to open a real Barkley’s Bistro where dogs and their leash-holders can come hangout in our canine kitchen.
