How it all began

My wife Mary, our daughter Alexandra, and myself live on South Hero, an emerald island of Lake Champlain in northern Vermont with our four loveable, goofy, drooling dogs. Mary wanted to create a treat that we could share with our dogs. Week after week I used my skills as a classically trained chef to fiddle about in my kitchen developing countless scrumptious and delicious energy bar recipes.

Each week, we taste-tested the latest concoctions, carefully selecting ingredients that were delicious and healthy for both people and canines. The dogs happily lined up for the testing, too - it's fair to say our canines were satisfied customers! As the bars improved - yep, there were some real lemons!- and became more and more tasty, the YaffBar was born.

Our energy bars are just the beginning. We have created product lines that build on that beloved shared connection between dog owners and their dogs. Check out our reflective, protective safety accessories - they've been keeping dogs and their owners safe for 15 years. Be sure to look at our apparel line that you'll just love to wear every day, and our dog toys that your pup will just love to play with every day! We're more than a little obsessed with our dogs' safety and happiness, and we know you share that commitment.

What really matters to us at Spot The Dog is the ability to share and connect with our dogs, family, and friends. We celebrate the strong bond that begins with a puppy, an adopted dog, or maybe the family dog that has been around for a while. Who can stop from Yaffing Out Loud when a dog chases his own tail or looks at you with big droopy eyes just begging for one small morsel of your YaffBar!

I hope that you will all connect with and enjoy the same pleasure that we have in developing Spot The Dog.

Your partner in shared joy,
Mark
