WHAT'S COOKIN' AT BARKIN' - OUR HANDMADE MEALS & TREATS
Our hand-crafted meals feature recipes full of the same ingredients you serve your human family – locally sourced USDA-quality meats, fruits, and veggies, plus a hand-compounded blend of supplements. Our delicious baked snacks are crackers and cookies so yummy, you might find yourself sneaking a few bites for yourself. We hand-bake our treats using whole, easy-to-pronounce ingredients. All of our cookies and crackers are baked in-house with 100% real ingredients and are sure to be a hit with your furry friend.
Our dog food is hand-made and will arrive to your front door frozen. In order to maintain the quality and integrity of our product, shipments will leave our Austin store between Monday & Wednesday. If you are purchasing Frozen Food for shipment, you will be required to purchase a minimum of 4 packs of food to ensure they remain frozen during their transit to you and your pooch. Any dry treats, cookies, or bark can be shipped via USPS by placing a separate order. If you have any questions, call us at 512-982-6700 and speak to our Customer Service Team.
Why Homemade Dog Food?
When our adopted dogs Bea and Jax began suffering from health issues, we found ourselves in need of specialized food. As we searched for dietary solutions, we learned that most dog food is mass-produced and supplemented with excessive amounts of sugar, salt, and animal by-products – in addition to chemicals and toxins designed to increase shelf life.
Most disturbing of all, we learned that standard store-bought food negatively affects the health and well-being of our furry friends. Poor quality diets lead to malnutrition, allergic reactions, toxicity, obesity, shortened lifespans, and even death.
We knew our dogs deserved better. We ditched the canned and dried food in favor of fresh meals made in our own kitchen. We selected wholesome ingredients and added the right balance of supplements to support our dogs’ health. And thus, Barkin’ Creek Dog Kitchen was born!
We love making these nutritious meals available to pups beyond our doors. Ready to refine your dog’s diet? Check out our meals, snacks, and bark.
How To Switch Your Pup’s Diet: The 20% Transition Rule
If dry food has been your go-to, you’ll need to gradually transition your dog to fresh meals to prevent indigestion. We recommend the same approach even when switching between fresh Barkin’ Creek meal options.
To ensure a smooth adjustment, use the 20% Transition Rule. Over a period of five days, replace 20% of your dog’s meal with Barkin’ Creek food, increasing by 20% each day. By the fifth day, your baby will be munching on 100% fresh food. (For dogs with sensitive stomachs, increase the transition period to 7 to ten days).
