Shay Hammond started her business when she was 11 years old. She got her idea from a dog bone cookbook she found while on vacation. She wanted to make dog treats for her dog Pancake, so she did.
“He really liked them and I thought, “Wow this could really end up being something huge!” So i went around town to see if anyone would actually sell them and i found a couple of business that would, ” Hammond said.
Now, she sells her homemade dog treats, which come in flavors such as Mutter Butter and Chic’n Lick’n, from her website and in a neighborhood store which sells local artisan’s goods on consignment. Hammond earned $700 last year and $1,500 since she started the company.
