Podcast Episode 170: How to Start a Dog Bakery Business with Minyoung Morita

In this episode I’m talking to the founder of Dog Bakery Academy, Minyoung Morita. While launching and growing her own dog bakery business over 7 years, Minyoung saw the huge demand for healthy and fun bakery style dog treats. But there literally weren’t enough dog bakeries to supply the stores! So she had the idea to create an online course to teach others how to build their own dog bakery business. Her course covers everything from buying a domain to the rules and regulations broken down by each state.

Minyoung is so passionate about getting nutritious treats in the paws of dogs, that she also launched a pet parent recipe membership this year.

Do you want to know about the tools and apps she uses to run her online course and social media? You can get a list of those, along with recommended resources from ALL of my guests in the Wear Wag Repeat Resource guide. Get free access today at

    Good information, could get more in depth of the process. Too much giggling, very novice sounding. Laughing is great, but not to the point of sounding like a teenager. Sorry, just a little distracting.
