Imagine! Healthy dog treats made using fresh home-grown ingredients!
Kimbra grows apples, zucchini, carrots and pumpkins in her own garden. She says that Southern Oregon is a large farming community, so she can easily get the freshest ingredients to bake with.
Her healthy “crunchies” are about to be featured in a local holistic vet’s office. In fact, the vet’s own dogs love her treats. Not bad for a new dog bakery!
After bringing a new puppy home, she began to research dog food and dog treats to find the best products for her pet. But in doing so, she learned that there were many recalls and problems associated with pet treats manufactured in China. So she started making her own natural dog treats. Kimbra says, ” I love to bake so this was a perfect hobby for me.”
She shared her homemade dog treats with friends and family and received positive responses, so she decided to try to make money doing something she loved to do. “My dog treat business became official on June 14, 2013 and so far I am doing well! I sell at local farmers markets and online through my website.”
For the business name, she credits her niece who suggested that she use her unique first name. Thus, the alliterative “Kimbra’s K9 Crunchies” was created and I am sure you will agree, quite memorable!
Two of her popular dog treats include the following:
- Peanut butter banana crunchies
- Sweet potato apple crunchies:
These healthy dog treats are made with oat flour and brown rice flour. She makes her own peanut butter and uses locally grown foods to prepare her treats.
The treats are all natural dog treats and have no soy, wheat, corn or artificial preservatives.

Wishing her all the best as her business grows!
