Typical Gemini, with the concentration span of a gnat & not one for sitting still. My old Da used to say that "you're a long time dead". So my mantra is get busy living.Please join me for more at

This place is the ultimate spoil for your canine
I find it difficult to come up with new ways to spoil the Grandfurbaby. Sure, we take walks together, we visit off leash parks and beaches, and to be honest Bentley gets more of the couch than I do. There are only so many tennis balls a doting Granny can gift her favourite Labrador.

Meet Bentley

So when I recently visited Bentley I was determined to up the ante.

Dog Barkery at Belmont, 15 minutes drive south of Newcastle, specialises in baking preservative free canine treats on their premises at Shop 3/600 Pacific Highway.

Dog Lovers are a Special Breed

Entering Dog Barkery was a brand new experience for all of us. There are over thirty flavours of healthy treats and chews hanging in bags on the walls, and piled into plastic baskets along the floor were pigs ears and kangaroo tails of an assortment of flavours.

Dog Heaven

Newcastle's original is not just a dog Bbkery, but also a dog cafe with a menu including Puppuchinos, Liver Lattes, Muttshakes and Pupcakes. To be honest my head was spinning and Bentley was like a kid in a lolly shop.

The Cafe Servery

Young Bentley, an only child and exceedingly pampered, just adored his carob and banana flavoured Muttshake, followed by a Hot Dog Pup Cake, which took only seconds to devour. Who even knew that dogs liked bananas?

We then selected treats to take away, including smoked pigs ears for summer afternoons in the backyard.

How amazing is this?

Humans are not catered for in any fashion at the Dog Barkery due to health regulations, though there is a cafe next door with outdoor seating to the side of the building, with water bowls, which should appease the humans in the family.

And yes, if you think that's over the top, wait until you see the personalised birthday cakes and bones, which you can organise for your dog's special day. Please order at least 24 hours in advance, and if you need to arrange delivery that will be at an additional charge.

Dog Barkery has the following opening hours:

Monday. 9:30am - 2:30pm
Tuesday to Friday. 9:30am - 5pm
Saturday 9:30am - 3pm

Cat lovers, do you feel you are missing out? There are one or two jars of small baked treats for felines, though I am sure they would be something different to treat your furry friend.

I'm not sure which of us had the more fun at Dog Barkery. I do know that even after a shake and pup cake the Labrador managed to chew up a Scrabble piece or two.
