The Diva Dog Bakery™ – *How to Start a Dog Treat Business course teaches students how to start a homemade dog treat bakery and sell treats in person or online.
This side hustle is for people of all ages and backgrounds and can bring in $500 – $1,000+ per month. (It can also be scaled up to a full-time business if desired!)
This course is perfect for dog lovers and those who would like to set up their own business from home.
The Course Founder
The course is based on Kristin Larsen’s personal experience as the founder of Diva Dog Bakery™, a boutique dog treat bakery that she started while in college.
After she was laid off from her 9-5 during the Great Recession, she quickly scaled her bakery to a full-time business, selling treats both in-person (at farmers markets, craft fairs and neighbourhood meetups) and online (via Etsy).
She found herself raking in hundreds of dollars at in-person events on Saturdays and consistently selling her treats every day through her Etsy shop. Her bakery was picked up by print magazines and online press, and she even was invited by the Emmy’s (!!!) to gift her dog treats in the swag bags!
No Experience Needed
You don’t need any baking experience to star this course. Kristin shares dog treats recipes that she has personally developed and used.
You can sell your treats online, offline, or both.
You can make between $500-$1,000 a month with a dog treat bakery side hustle, or scale it into a 5-figure full-time business.
