Meet the Owner of Pastries 4 Pets Inc.

  • Over 12 years ago, Donna Shovlin started Pastries 4 Pets selling homemade decorated dog treats at Farmers Markets, expos, craft shows, online and within one year after opening; the owner also opened a retail store.

    After opening her first retail store, Donna decided to offer her dog treat icing products to other dog bakeries so they would have a healthy frosting to spoil dogs. Eventually, the dog icing products required a larger space to operate out of and Donna closed her second retail store to move to a factory.

    While selling the dog icings she realized so many other Entrepreneurs were always asking for help in starting their own dog treat businesses. Since she knew there was a lot involved, she started online courses to educate bakers on how to get started and on how to make money selling dog treats part or full time.

    Donna always dreamed of opening an Academy to be able to teach dog bakers in person and she finally had her dream come true! Classes range from treat baking to sales training for all levels and will be available throughout the year.
