Why Homemade Dog Food?
A few years ago, our adopted dogs Bea and Jax suffered from dietary and health issues that created the need for specialized foods. Through our research, we learned most dog food is mass-produced and supplemented with copious amounts of sugar, salt, and animal by-products, as well as chemicals and toxins used to increase shelf life. This didn’t fly with us.
We learned that serving standard store-bought food to our pups can have a negative impact on their health and well-being. Poor nutrition choices lead to malnutrition, allergic reactions, toxicity, obesity, shorter lifespans, and even death.
So we tossed out the canned and dried dog food and got to work cooking. We selected wholesome ingredients from our kitchen and added the right balance of supplements to create nutritious meals for our own dogs… and voilà, Barkin’ Creek Kitchen was born!
What makes us different?
We believe in transparency. Our kitchens are open concept, so visitors can see how their pet’s food is made and the wholesome ingredients that we use. You can even speak with our Chefs face-to-face!
Unbeaten customer service
Our customer service is unbeaten and our goal is to make sure all our clients and pups are happy. Didn’t have a great experience? Tell us right away -- we’ll fix it!
Locally sourced high-quality ingredients
Each recipe uses locally sourced human-quality meats, fruits, and vegetables. We believe in supporting our local farmers and businesses.
Meals are handcrafted in small batches in our on-site kitchens to ensure quality control and consistency. Nothing leaves our kitchen that we wouldn’t eat ourselves.
Best nutrition for your pet
All meals are made of 100% real food, chemical-free, and we add fortifying nutrients to ensure your pet is receiving the best-balanced nutrition possible. No bagged or canned dog food will come close. Period.
Human-grade Dog Food You Can Trust
We carefully prepare each delicious recipe daily by hand using USDA quality, human-grade, meats, fruits, and vegetables. All Ingredients are locally sourced and our meals are formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Dog Food Nutrient Profiles for all stages of life.
Before the final mixing of our meal ingredients, we add our homemade nutraceutical formula. This proprietary blend is chock full of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fish oils as well as multiple vitamins and minerals.
Our dog meals are flash-frozen and can stay in your freezer for up to a year. Once defrosted, Barkin’ Creek meals can be served to your pooch warmed-up or cold.
All of our delicious meals are full of ingredients that you serve your family. We promise that your dog will be impressed and left wanting more!
All of our cookies and crackers are baked in-house with 100% real ingredients and are sure to be a hit with your furry friend.

Switching Dog Food
When you make the decision to switch your dog to a new food, it is necessary to gradually add the new food over a period of time to prevent stomach upset. This even includes switching between any of our recipes.
To ensure a smooth transition, we recommend the 20% Transition Rule and suggest transitioning over a period of 5 days. If your dog has a sensitive stomach, the transition may take 7-10 days (adjust percentages accordingly).
Delivery & Shipping Guidelines
Our meals and snacks are handmade in our on-site kitchen and delivered directly to your front door frozen.
- In order to maintain the quality and integrity of our products, shipments leave our stores between Monday and Wednesday each week
- If you live outside Texas, we ask that you purchase a minimum of 4 packs of food to ensure they remain frozen during transit to you and your pooch
- All treats, cookies or bark can be shipped via USPS, by placing a separate order
