Allison loves all things kitchen! She strives to make the very BEST homemade dog treats. Her recipes include only natural human grade ingredients. Her love of food and cooking started during a 2-year span when she could not eat or drink by mouth (due to health issues). Surprisingly, watching cooking shows was one activity that got her through that tough period.
Allison was born with Down syndrome and Tracheoesophogeal Fistula (TEF, which is when the breathing tube and eating tube are not formed correctly). This impacted her life tremendously. She needed a trach tube to help her breathe for 23 years. At the age of 11, doctors found a laryngeal cleft that was allowing food and drink to go into her lungs. She required a g-tube in her stomach and could not eat or drink by mouth for a 2 year period while she underwent a variety of surgeries and procedures. Allison's health has always been a major factor in her life. She has surpassed her family's wildest dreams because she is a very determined young woman!
Doggy Delights is a perfect business for Allison because she spends time in the kitchen mixing up her own treat recipes. She knows how important healthy food is for both people and pets. Her treats are sold frozen or freeze dried so no preservatives are needed. Promoting her business and selling the treats gets her out into the community meeting people and their dogs. She is an entrepreneur with Down syndrome, but she just wants you to know her as the best dog treat chef ever!
Thank you for your interest in Allison and her Doggy Delights business.
