Now, a canine-only bakery for pampered pooches in Australia

Washington: Dog lovers in Australia can now pamper their pets even more, with the opening of a canine-only bakery in Melbourne.

According to the Herald Sun, animal lovers can get everything from “pupperoni” pizza, doggie doughnuts to Moroccan lamb biscuits at the newly-opened specialist Diamond Dog Food and Bakery.

Alice Needham, who owns the business with her partner Philip, said they started the store as a fun way to educate owners on nutritious pet meals.

“We’d been cooking for our dog and we’d seen a lot of obesity in dogs and things in foods that are bad for them,” Fox News quoted Needham as saying.

“It’s a fun job and, if you pay attention to a dog’s diet, it can actually increase their lifespan,” she said.

The couple have set up a catering service for pet parties that sees the bakery create up to 10 customized birthday cakes a week.

“Six hundred dollars is the most expensive party we’ve had. It was for 15 dogs, which included the cake, party food and the gift bags,” she added.
