My Story

Bougie Assistants: Floyd, Angel & Auggie

Bougie Bites was founded in 2021 intertwining two of my most favorite passions.

Baking and my family's dogs!

My health was very important to me and working behind a desk 40 hours a week caused me to spread about 40!  So, I joined the gym and Weight Watchers.  Before I knew it I was getting fit and lost 50 pounds. I noticed on my walks with my dogs that I was outlasting them by leaps and bounds.  It was time to whip them into shape so that they could keep up with the new and improved me! 

The challenge? These dogs love their snacks as much, if not more, than I do. And, with them being so dang cute I just can never say, "No." Hence why my grandkids call me "YAYA" - and I'm not Greek!

So, finding them healthy options, to make their tails wag, became my mission.

Thus, it all began.  I tried and continue to try all sorts of recipes.  Tweaking a little here and there  and then the most important step - passing Team Bougie's Taste Testings.  

Our team consists of our family dogs!

 

First up is Angel, a 13 year old Shorkie flown in from Texas, just months after she was born (and after a very large bottle of wine and on a dare). Her name should actually be, "Yellow-Tail." This sweetie is no "Angel" either and definitely rules the roost! She belongs to me and my husband, Sully.

 

Then we have the two rescues.  

Auggie, a 3 year old hound/American Terrier mix has more energy than the Energizer Bunny.

He belongs to my son, Nicholas.

 

Last but certainly not least, the "Big Boy" of the group - Floyd.  He is 5 years old and the team's

90 pound gentle giant.  A pit mix that belongs to my youngest son, Finn.  

 

So, as you can see Bougie Bites has quite a range to please... and please we do!  These 4-pawed loves of ours adore Bougie treats.  No lie, some they have "bougily" turned their snouts up to 

and  needless to say - we don't sell those. 

 I will continue to try new recipes with the goal being to add new products such as creative cakes for birthdays, Gotcha'Days and hoping to have frozen treats for the summer. I want to assist your needs in any way that I can - so don't be shy! No order is too small nor too big. And, have a special request? Just message me and if I can - I promise that I will!

My mission is to bake healthy daily, training and special occasion treats for your 4-pawed family members and friends - that they'll love and you will feel good and confident giving them.  

I want their tails to wag when they hear you say, "BOUGIE!"
