All dogs deserve a treat, and Three Dog Bakery in Rookwood Commons has plenty of pup pastries and oven-baked goodies for your furry best friend.
The Kansas City-based company, which was founded in 1989, has more than 50 retail bakeries across the globe, and now one is right here in the Queen City.
The bakery hosted its grand opening July 31 and Aug. 1 with a pooch parade, party cake and free doggie bandanas (Aug. 1, or ‘DOGust 1st,’ is the universal birthday for all rescue dogs whose birth date is unknown, per the North Shore Animal League).
“We’re beyond excited to have joined the Cincinnati community with lots of dog lovers ready to spoil their pups daily,” said Laina Chow, owner of Three Dog Bakery Cincinnati, in a release.
The bakery menu includes items like a birthday bone cake, in wheat-free, grain-free peanut butter, carob chip or carrot cake flavor; a rice flour strawberry shortcake donut; cheesy parmesan sticks; and doggie-friendly Lickety-Split “sundaes” in a cup.
According to the brand’s story, Three Dog Bakery was inspired by a deaf and partially blind rescue Great Dane named Gracie with a sensitive tummy. Her owner, Dan Dye, started making her treats at home and, along with business partner Mark Beckloff, opened their first doggie bakery. The worldwide canine bake shop is now no longer owned by Dye and Beckloff, but seems to operate under the same ethos.
“Crafted from scratch in small batches, our highly-skilled pastry chefs use only simple, real ingredients, slow baking each recipe to lock in all those luscious flavors and canine-loving nutrients,” reads the Three Dog Bakery website, with the stated mission to “feed the souls of dogs and the people that love them.”
Three Dog Bakery Cincinnati is open daily at 2649 Edmondson Road, Rookwood Commons. More info at facebook.com.
