About Lucky Paws
Just like Mom used to make…
Does ‘Princess’ only eat fresh treats at her favorite canine bakery? Well now your love muffin, with the discerning taste buds of Julia Child, can enjoy instant homemade goodness anytime.
Lucky Paws proudly presents PetCakes, the first ever microwavable dog treats. Run by Melinda Kirk, this unique concept of a canine cupcake, has spread quickly throughout pet boutiques nationwide. PetCakes, made of all natural and organic ingredients, can be microwaved in less than 3 minutes creating a tasty and totally unique experience for families and their pets.
PetCakes achieved Best New Product of the Year 2010 at the Global Pet Expo. Featured in various magazines and publications as a top pick and chosen as one of the gifts in the coveted “Hollywoof” swag bag, PetCakes has quickly become the new “it” product.
Melinda Kirk, founder and CEO of Lucky Paws LLC, was born and raised in Springfield, OH. The mid-west native moved to Cincinnati where she graduated with an MBA from University of Cincinnati. Developing her passion for canine culinary arts, Melinda began to bake dog treats for her two love muffins, Roxy and Zeke. What began as a hobby, quickly morphed into a full time job as friends and family began to order Melinda’s signature bone shaped Birthday Cake for pets. By the mid 90′s, operations and a fully staffed kitchen began to supply major markets across the U.S. with a variety of baked goods that were both scrumptious and healthy.
Flash forward to 2008 – Melinda still loved to bake but feeling time constrained, developed a product that was microwavable for her new best friend, Bella. Check out the caricature of Bella on all of the PetCakes boxes! What started as a product for her own enjoyment has now become the first ever microwavable dog treat for anyone to enjoy, even the baking impaired!
Pick up a box and let the fun begin! There are all kinds of ways to make it your own PetCake. Here is one of our favorite recipes… Slice the PupCake in half legthwise and slather unsweetened applesauce and peanut butter on either half. Place the two parts together and you have a homemade PB&J PetCake. Send us your favorite creation and we’ll post it online. We love pictures too!
