Bougie Bakes founders Ryan and Meghan Quinn started Bougie Barks after they got their puppy Navy. Navy began experiencing stomach issues after consuming her training treats. Unsatisfied with the ingredient profile of those treats, the Quinns began to make their own treats for dogs, having the experience of running a baked goods company at their hands. Thus, Bougie Barks was born in 2021. Each ingredient used in their treats serves a purpose in how they positively impact the body. All of their treats are packaged in post-consumer recycled packaging.
