Dog Bakery Equipment

A Good Investment in Your Future!

Dog bakery equipment is one area that you should not skimp on, if you are starting a pet bakery. There are several good reasons for this.

Just as in any other business, investing in good tools and equipment will save you time, money in the long run, and lots of frustration.

Quality kitchen tools make baking a breeze, and, because you won’t have to keep replacing them, they are a good value—even if you have to pay a little more up front.

When equipment breaks in a business setting, down time costs money, because your production line comes to a halt, until the equipment is repaired or replaced

Essential Dog Bakery Equipment

Here are some items that you may need:
  • Mixer – You will need a heavy duty mixer to mix dough for your dog treats. Don’t try to use a hand mixer or regular household mixer, as you will quickly destroy it, from over-use.
  • Bread machine – This makes life easier. With Natural Pet Bakery, I always had a couple of batches of dog treats going at once. If you're going to spend the time for one batch, it doesn't take much more time to make two!

    A wheel cutter is a simple piece of dog bakery
    equipment that can save you time and money!

  • Cookie Press – for making spritz cookies.
  • Cookie Cutters – Most dog treat bakery owners make dog bones, so, at the very least, you'll need dog bone cookie cutters. Your dog treats will be more interesting if you have some other cute shapes.
  • Cookie Sheets or Baking Sheets – You will need several to make your baking operation efficient. If you don't have enough baking sheets, precious time will be wasted. Save time by loading the next round of cookie sheets while the first batch is baking.
  • Pizza Cutter – If you are making dog biscuits, using a pizza cutter makes cutting the dog biscuits go quickly.
  • Decorating Bag – This often comes in a set, with different heads for decorating. Or, better yet, use disposable bags, so you don’t have to mess with cleaning the bag.
  • Double Boiler – use this to melt carob or yogurt coating. Or use your microwave.
  • Large cutting board or pastry board – to roll your dough on.
  • Non-stick rolling Pin – to roll the dough.
  • Food Safe Storage Containers – The containers need to be food safe, and 8-12 quart containers are a nice size for both dough and finished dog treats. Square containers are easier to fit into a limited space.
  • Cake Pans and Muffin Pans – You can get some great shapes – both big and little. Do you want to make dog birthday cakes? Try a bone shaped cake pan. Or little energy bars? Use a mini muffin pan or a mini loaf pan.

  • Miscellaneous – doughnut cutter, biscuit cutter, apple corer. Depending on the dog treats that you decide to make, you may or may not need these.


If your new dog bakery will be a retail shop with a store front, you will need to invest in more equipment than if you will be working in your home. Sometimes you can purchase used bakery equipment from businesses that have closed or have extra equipment that they no longer need.

However, no matter what size your dog bakery will be, make sure you purchase everything that you will need—but don’t purchase a lot of equipment that you really don’t need!



Now that you have seen the dog bakery equipment, where would you like to go next?
