Video: Offbeat - sweet treats for dogs

Have your say

Lou Rodchenkova, 44, had the idea for The Fuzzy Dog bakery after realising that her German Shepherd cross Lilliya didn’t like mass-produced chewy sweets.

She began experimenting with her own recipes to satisfy Liliya’s sweet tooth, and before long, realised that there was a demand for gourmet treats.

She decided to give up her job working in child protection in London to move to the seaside town of Whitby, North Yorks., to open up a market stall selling her bakes.

Now she has opened up her very own shop, where dog owners can find something to satisfy even the fussiest of pooches.

On first glance, the shop could be mistaken for a human bakery - with delicious smells wafting towards customers as they walk through the door. A counter displays different shapes and flavours of biscuits, cakes and gingerbread men.

But on closer inspection, it’s clear the bakes are suitable for doggies only. The biscuits and cakes, shaped like bats, skulls, stars, hearts, farmyard animals and bones, are actually made with flavours including fish, pork, beef and liver.
