Dog Business Spotlight – Tailor Made Beds & Biscuits

Tailor Made Beds & Biscuits

Owner: Liezel Mortimer

Location: South Africa

My world changed forever in 2008 when my golden retriever, Dylan, was diagnosed with lymphoma. Caring for Dylan forced me to take a close look at the ingredients in store-bought dog treats. I did not like what I saw! I started baking my own healthy dog treats. I thought there must be other dog parents out there who would prefer healthier dog treats than were available as well.

Unfortunately we lost Dylan in July 2009. But a few months later. Nugget, a golden rescue, joined our family, and got me involved with the Golden Retriever Rescue in South Africa.

Then, in 2012, my husband and I started our dog products business. We make healthy dog treats, and we also have a line of elevated dog beds, water bowl stands, and leash holders. We picked the business name of “Tailor Made Beds & Biscuits” because our products are made specifically for the four-legged family members.

We sell our products on our website and we also exhibit at dog shows and farmers markets.  Our dog treats come in three flavors:

  • Peanut Butter & Oats,
  • Peanut Butter, Oats & Coconut
  • Marmite & Ostrich Biltong (which is like jerky). These are South African favorites.

Future treats coming include pupcakes to celebrate dog birthdays. We are also considering making cat treats, too, as soon as our cats stop destroying the catnip we plant!

We are passionate about dogs and love baking healthy treats for them. Please visit our website: Tailor Made Beds & Biscuits!
