The Barkery UK, an artisan dog bakery, launches new website. The Barkery UK is a Cornish based company which produces luxury dog treats and gifts. All treats are hand baked and harness the goodness and health benefits of fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices. These are super healthy, natural dog treats which are human grade. Jackson Lynn, the company Managing Director says “we try each batch ourselves with a cup of tea to ensure they are tasty enough for our furry friends. We are only willing to offer them if we can stand behind them and because we use really good quality ingredients I have no fear when taste testing. My favourites are the sweet potato and coconut heart biscuits. They taste like shortbread!” Valid until 31st October 2019, enter code tastytreats123 to receive 25% off all orders!
