Starker first started selling dog treats online a few years ago under the name Pupcakes and decided to take her business to the next level by opening this shop and bakery.

Although it is the “Bark Shop,” they haven’t forgotten about your favorite felines. There are handmade cat toys, food and treats throughout the shop, as well.
