Welcome to Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery

A family-owned and operated dog bakery run by and for people who love dogs. 

Thanks for visiting us online.  The Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery was one of the first businesses I visited when I moved to Waynesville several years ago.  I loved the concept of a store that focused on healthy treats for dogs and cats and unique items for pets and pet lovers.  

Last year, after 20+ years of working in the corporate world, I decided it was time to do something I really loved and which would allow to do more to improve the plight of homeless and abused animals.   

I purchased the Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery in August of 2015 and have loved every minute of owning the Bakery since.  In addition to being a fun business with a wonderful customer base, it has allowed me to do a lot of things to support our local animal shelter and rescue organizations like Sarge’s.

My personal pet family includes six adopted dogs that roam the 45 acres of my home at Stevens Creek Mountain Farm.

If you are ever in historic downtown Waynesville, please stop by and visit us. We are considered a mandatory stop for many people who travel through Western North Carolina. We are a very dog-friendly shop and people really like the sense of community in the store. I call it a “Cheers” for dogs and their owners. There is an immediate connection between customers because they know they have something in common – the love of a pet or pets. People stand around and talk, tell stories and give advice. Some pretty compelling and touchings stories frequently come out of those conversations.

As of now, our online store offers our decorated bagged treats and wonderful-smelling shampoos. The inventory in the Bakery is more diverse, including collars, leashes, harnesses, sweaters, toys and dog/cat-themed items (doormats, magnets, t-shirts, mugs, etc). 

Plese don’t hesitate to contact us if you’re looking for something specific. We can often help you find what you need or whip up a custom treat just for your pup.
