More Than Just A Treat: How Tail-Waggingly Fabulous Packaging can Up Your Dog Treat Game

Hey there, Pack Leaders of the Pup Pastry World! ๐Ÿถ๐ŸŽ‚

Did you know? In the dog-eat-dog world of dog treat bakeries, your packaging could be your secret weapon! Sure, everyone knows Snoopy’s muffin is to die for, but what if it came in a boring brown paper bag? Would it still make tails wag and tongues salivate? We bark NO!

Imagine this instead: Milo excitedly sniffs an attractively packaged treat, his paw-rents admire the professional and creative wrap, and with a ‘wow’, their loyalty sways your way! That’s the power of a well-branded package. It’s like dressing your treat in a stylish, yet functional, tiny tuxedoโ€”it keeps the good stuff fresh, looks fetching, and differentiates you from the pack! ๐Ÿพ

Packaging for dog treats serves two purposes:

  1. First and foremost, it keeps dog treats fresh and clean.
  2. Secondly, it can be a terrific way to advertise your dog treat business or crafts business.

There are quite a few options when it comes to packaging. You can put your crafts into a box, or just into a simple plastic bag. Craft stores will carry these items.

Wrap the box with a dog-themed ribbon, or use it to tie up the bag.

Here are two examples of dog-themed ribbons with bones and paw prints. There are all different colors, patterns, and ribbon widths. Check your local craft stores and sewing stores which are the best places to find these items.

Take a business card and:

  • Stick it inside the package
  • Offer a discount on it, good for their next purchase
  • Punch a hole and tie it to the package with the ribbon

Or, make up a set of labels with your business name and logo and just stick them right on your plastic package or box.

Here’s a photo of the same package using a dog-themed ribbon. This package was initially tied with a pipe cleaner. See how it pops out! The plain plastic package is not so plain anymore!

Most importantly!!!

Make sure you have contact information on your card or label. The best bet would be a website, phone number, and email address. If you don’t have a website, consider getting one put up – or at the very least, register your business with listing services like Google My Business, Bing Places for Business, and Yelp so that you can be found online. Your online listings don’t have to be elaborate, but without an online presence, you will look like you are doing it for a hobby and not a professional business.

Now that we’ve barked about the significance of branded packaging, let’s not forget another crucial aspect to consider: ensuring the longevity and freshness of your tail-astic treats. When it comes to baking, it’s vital to let your treats fully dry before packaging to increase shelf life and prevent molding. That’s as important as the stylish wrapping you put on afterwards!

For those decorated masterpieces that need a little extra care, dehydrating before packaging may also be necessary. And here’s an added tipโ€”why not fortify your treats with dog-friendly mold inhibitors and antioxidants? Not only do they help keep treats fresher longer, but they also ensure your canine customers keep wagging their tails for more.

Check out these fantastic options:

Don’t let your scrumptious treats go to waste! Combine the perfect packaging technique with the use of these nifty freshness-savers, and your dog treat bakery will be the talk of the town. Or should we say, “the bark of the pack”?

So folks, the alpha dog has spoken! It’s time to unleash the power of eye-catching, tail-waggingly fabulous packaging. It’s not just about pampering the palate of your furry clientele, but also about paw-sitively impressing their humans. Going that extra mile won’t just result in more satisfied customers; it may even justify a premium price tag. After all, who wouldn’t pay a bit more for a ‘wow’ experience? ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’ฐ

In the world of dog treat bakeries, it’s not only the ‘bake’ but also the ‘box’ that can fetch you the biscuit! Remember, when it comes to packaging, dare to be different, dare to wow, and most importantly, dare to BRAND!
