About Puppernickel

Born October 1, 2018. Puppernickel a woman-owned & operated business located in the heart of Historic Downtown Hillsboro, Oregon.

We know that the health of our family members is important which is why we are dedicated to baking all natural wholesome dog treats to improve the well-being and happiness of your family. Because of the love we share with our pets, we wanted to offer a delicious nutritious product to celebrate your pets' special days. We did our research and created our own secret recipes.  But we did not stop there.  The community helped us shape who we are by requesting toys, apparel, bandanas, grooming supplies and we listened.  We are more than a baRkery. We are a pet retail store as well as a welcoming space for all.

The princess and primary source of cuddles. Glinda is our rescue from the Oregon Humane Society, originally from Merced, CA. Tasked with quality control. Glinda tests treats from every batch to ensure flavor profiles are consistent and all treats meet the two paws up standard.
