Brookie’s Cookies for Dogs started in 2013 in my Watertown, Massachusetts kitchen during a heavy day-long snow storm. I started making Brookie’s Cookies for my own dog Brady, a 9-year-old yellow lab who we rescued from Bay City, Texas. I used to buy Brady’s treats at various stores but was always very concerned with the ingredients I could not pronounce and where and who they were made by. I thought what better way to know what he is eating by making his treats on my own!

It quickly turned into my passion.  I started making small batches, researching and experimenting with different ingredients, aiming for Brady’s approval while making sure he had a safe and healthy treat. When I got the right combination, Brady let me know by begging for the whole batch. I knew I had the recipe for success.

Since Brady loved Brookie’s Cookies so much, I felt ready to share them at the Waltham Farmers’ Market in Waltham, Massachusetts. What a great experience this has been for me, I get to meet lots of great dogs and their owners, some of my best 4-legged customers almost knock down my table they are so excited to be getting Brookie’s Cookies. Even the pickiest dogs devour Brookie’s Cookies.

Brookie’s Cookies are homemade with six ingredients:pumpkin, peanut butter, oatmeal, milk, eggs, and flour and cut in our signature heart shape. The cookie has a great texture and is easy to break off into little pieces for little mouths! I promise you will not find many crumbs left behind!

Named in honor of my niece, Brooke Ramsdell, every cookie is made as a tribute to her love of life and her love for dogs, especially her dog, Bentley.  Brooke was a brave young woman who fought Angiosarcoma for 18 months, although she lost her battle at the young age of 19, she taught me to embrace life and do what I love.

Doing what I love means baking Brookie’s Cookies and making dogs happy.  Each cookie is made with honor and love. Thank you for purchasing Brookie’s Cookies. I know your dog will love these as much as my Brady!
