River Dog Bakery is one of Knoxville's "go-to" places to find homemade goodies for your four-legged friend.
"We do primarily fresh baked dog treats, birthday cakes, assorted crunchy treats. We do soft things, we have a whole variety of different things," said Brian and Pam Trainor, owners of River Dog.
The Trainors opened River Dog 12 years ago after realizing Knoxville needed a bakery for dogs. The idea came from one of their own pets.
For a couple that works to meet the needs of dogs all over East Tennessee, Brian and Pam know they have a really good employee in Roux. She's the face folks follow on Facebook, the dog they look for when the come to the store, and the dog that makes their home and business complete.
"She's good company for sure," said Pam. "Those couple of years when we didn't have a dog, it was so quiet. She and I are pretty much hooked at the hip so we're together all the time."
River Dog Bakery is located at 5201 Kingston Pike in Knoxville (Suite 8), 865-588-8100.
