The Beginning

Welcome to Wayward Hound Bakery and thank you for visiting.  I'm Dana Wuss the owner and baker. 

Since I was a kid I have loved baking delicious goodies from scratch using the finest and healthiest ingredients.  Shortly after adopting my first dog, Tia, when I was in college I was shocked reading the ingredients used to make commercial dog treats.  It was a bunch of junk made with fillers, additives, preservatives, colors, and flavorings.  How was this food?  I knew I could do better and set out to do just that!  So, I began baking healthy and tasty treats for Tia at home.  Not long afterwards I met my future husband and favorite employee, Jason, and his puppy, a Weimaraner, named Armor. 

Fourteen years ago, before moving to New Jersey from Jacksonville, Florida, my dog treats became so popular I opened a successful bakery exclusively for dogs called Stix & Bonz.  There I sold 14 varieties, of healthy, hand cut, made from scratch, dog treats and other  delicacies. They were a hit!

Now with my 3 kids in school and 4 hungry hounds at home, I founded Wayward Hound Bakery offering the same delicious, dog treats that were such a hit at Stix & Bonz.  I have updated and expanded the recipes focusing on today's health trends and tastes.  As always I use only the highest quality ingredients, no chemicals, fillers, or additives.  All our treats are made in small batches, from scratch, and hand cut! But most important to dogs is that they taste great! 

Come try them all! You and your four legged friends will be so happy you did!
