I am a 13-year-old, 8th-grade entrepreneur from the Bay Area and the owner of Doggy Dog Treats by Jazzy.
When I was 9 years old, I asked my parents if I could start a dog treat business, and they challenged me to come up with a business plan and recipes. I took the challenge seriously and wrote my first business plan along with 3 recipes. My moms were so impressed that when I turned 10, they helped me make my dreams come true with the start of Doggy Dog Treats by Jazzy!
My motto is- spreading love, one treat at a time.
I started my business because I love dogs, and I wanted them to have healthy treats made with all natural, simple ingredients. That is why my mission is to give dogs yummy treats, that are human-grade, with no artificial flavors or preservatives.
I have been featured in The Ark Newspaper, and The Marin Independent Journal. I sell my treats on this website, my Etsy store, outdoor markets, and now on shelves at all 4 Woodlands Pet Food & Treats locations in Marin County!
My hope is to inspire other young, Black girls who have dreams of owning their own businesses. That is why my favorite quote is, "All our dreams can come true if you have the courage to pursue them"- Walt Disney.
