About

The Aunt Sasha's Barked Goods Story:

Lady Sasha Jellybean was bred and trained to be a champion sled dog. A Siberian Husky from a long line of champions in Tok, Alaska, Sasha was well on her way to fulfilling her legacy when struck with a rare eye disorder causing her to lose her sight.

The other sled dogs quickly lost interest in Sasha when she no longer could go out and mush with them, leaving Sasha alone at home, sad and without purpose. Sasha was an observant girl and noted that when her brothers, sisters and cousins came home from a hard day of mushing they would be famished and would only have dry and tasteless store bought treats to munch on.

So one day while the pack was out, Sasha using her keen sense of smell and amazing dexterity pulled together wonderful ingredients and created the first of her "original barked goods". Sasha wanted to create all natural and healthy treats for her family. 

These quickly became a favorite among the other sled dogs and Sasha once again became a special part of the team. The team would always take a hearty supply of the treats when they went out on the long competitions through the wilds of Alaska. Several generations of sled dogs enjoyed the now famous treats "barked" by "Aunt Sasha" who now makes them available to all pups.

As we continue to honor the tradition set by Aunt Sasha and strive for excellence and expedited service we find ourselves struggling to keep up with demand. In order to fulfill the needs of hungry dogs everywhere we need to upgrade our equipment to make larger quantities. 

At Barked Goods we are all about the health and wellness of your pets, a/k/a furry family members. With commercial equipment we will be able to increase productivity leaving us with more time to focus on ingredients, nutritional benefits and new and exciting flavor combinations. Our treats will not only look better, they will taste better!

Hop on the waggin' train and get your furry friends some all natural, nutritious snacks that are sure to keep their tails wagging for more.

Risks and challenges

The main challenge will be time management to appropriately fill our increasing amount of orders. We plan to overcome this by utilizing our new equipment to be able to produce larger quantities in a shorter amount of time.
