Jodi Galloway is the owner of Rose’s BARK Bakery. She was raised in Tate county, Independence, MS and attended Independence High School. She continued her schooling at Northwest College in Senatobia, MS. Jodi has a dog named Rose and she was given a “so called” all natural turkey treat. She developed 3 infections and almost passed away in regards to the treats she consumed. She had to get shots, medicine, and it all equated to a $400 vet bil. Jodi then decided to research actual healthy alternatives for pups. Her treats are made with organic ingredients, no preservatives, nothing artificial, and no dyes that would harm your pup. Rose is the inspiration and mascot of Rose’s BARK Bakery. She is Jodi’s child and Jodi plans to continue feeding her pup the best of the best and wants to share with your pet as well. Rose’s BARK Bakery has six health beneficial flavors as well as FREE treat samples and FREE local delivery! You also can’t forget about the pup cakes! She has five different sizes and uses organic fruits for flavor and color for the icing. This is perfect for puppy birthdays. Treat your pup with a healthy snack.
