SEATTLE -- A new food truck in Seattle has gone to the dogs, catering to our canine companions.

The Seattle Barkery is capitalizing on the Seattle-area's love of dogs and food trucks by offering homemade treats for canines. They rolled into operation 10 months ago, serving dogs at Seattle-area dog parks, office building parking lots, farmer's markets and private events.

Popular offerings include air-fried chicken feet and duck neck, cupcakes with bacon rebranded "pupcakes," mini cheesy doughnuts, pumpkin pretzels and peanut butter-banana cookies.

Owner Dawn Ford says she likes baking soft treats with pronounceable ingredients.

By Ford's count, their truck is one of just a handful in the country that focuses on dogs.
