Wholesome, artisan dog treats, each made with only one or two ingredients. All natural with no fillers, additives, preservatives or anything icky. Delicious treats made in Queens that dogs love.

Our treats are simple, wholesome and good for dogs. We currently have two types of treats: chicken and beef. We use specialized packaging for our treats that can be personalized for a specific dog, retail store, or shelter. Our treats are made at the QEDC Entrepreneur Space and many of the ingredients are sourced locally.

On February 29, 2016, I brought home a new puppy and quickly realized the treats on the market did not satisfy my needs or the needs of my new puppy. As any new anxious puppy parent, I did research. I read what seemed to be every article, blog, label and opinion on the internet. I spoke to vets, dog trainers, pet shop owners, pet parents and dog walkers. And after validating facts, debunking some myths and seeing what the pooches wanted firsthand, I came up with specifications for what I wanted for my pooch, Leap – I wanted treats that were delicious, healthy, easy to eat, and pocket and bag friendly. However, I couldn’t find my ideal treat on the market, so I decided to create my own. It took me over a year to develop the treats and bring them to market. To insure my recipes and procedures were safe for human handling and pooch eating, I consulted chefs and the Food Venture Center at Cornell University.
Amuse Pooch has been a part of the MiQ pop-up as well as District Market in LaGuardia Airport. They have also sold their treats in various markets.
