Why Danny O’Neill Brings His Dog to the Barkery

Danny O’Neill, aka “Bean Baron” and President of The Roasterie, is a longtime customer who shared with us why he shops and grooms his dog at Brookside Barkery and Bath:

“We bring all of our pets to the Barkery – they love dogs here and they understand that every dog has a unique personality. We drop her (Chewy) off and don’t worry a bit about her. Many years ago we read an article on what was in dog food and it just absolutely scared us. We only buy dog food here at the Barkery. We know that the Barkery only sources wholesome, healthy food. This is the only place we get dog food. It’s scary what they put in some dog food, but you don’t have to worry about that when you shop at The Barkery.”

We couldn’t have said it better! Our mission at the Barkery is “Better Health through Better Nutrition” and our goal is to provide the most up-to-date holistic health information with the best customer service possible. As the pioneering all-natural pet food store and bathing facility in the area, we’re dedicated to being the leader in customer service, pet care knowledge and quality products. Our driving passion is helping owners provide only the best for their animal companion. To help fulfill that mission, we offer the largest selection of natural pet food in Kansas City.

Why Raw? We’ll Tell You

Is it time your pet tried a raw diet?

We have several raw options at the Barkery, but is a raw diet right for your pet?

Many pet owners turned to raw foods when “nothing else worked” and typically solved their pets health crises by doing so. Other animal lovers have turned to a raw diet because of a growing number of recalls of processed pet foods, resulting in the death or serious illness of hundreds of pets. Some have seen the diet improve the overall quality of life for their pet, and the results are even visible with cleaner teeth, brighter eyes, and thicker and glossier coats.

In case you’re ready to take the dive into the raw diet, we hope you’ve had a change to see our raw diet recipe series, hosted by owner Delena Stout.

Barkery Owner Delena Stout on the Streetcar Project

Street Car ProjectA recent KMBC 9 interview highlights the possibility of a street car that would make its way into the Brookside neighborhood, and channel 9 stopped in at The Barkery to discuss the development. The project could include a line that runs from Union Station a full nine miles into Waldo, set to launch in 2019 if the vote is passed.

Delena Stout, owner of Brookside Barkery and Bath believes there is “a lot of potential” for the streetcar project, especially because of a lack of parking in the area. It could also mean easier access to natural pet foods for thousands of Kansas City residents, and of course, easy transportation through the heart of the city.
