Business Spotlight: Power “Pup” Treats – A Small Business Making a Big Difference in How We Treat Our Pups!

With all the excitement going on with the recent East Providence Restaurant Week, we thought it was only proper to Spotlight an East Providence business that is committed to producing scratch kitchen goodness that you won’t find on your traditional restaurant menu or takeout window. That’s because their customers are of the fury variety that tend to enjoy their meals at home! EastProv Hospitality is pleased to Spotlight Power “Pup” Treats! 

Power Pup Treats is a Riverside, RI based company that recently celebrated their third year in business anniversary. As the regions premier producer of homemade, human-grade treats for your favorite companion, Power Pup Treats provides an alternative to store-bought treats that are mass produced containing preservatives and artificial ingredients.

Christine Karouz, owner of Power Pup Treats notes “We are a small bakery, allowing us to focus all our attention to each order. Everything that comes out of the oven is always homemade from scratch and made with the best natural ingredients”. All products purchased from Power Pup Treats include a complete list of ingredients. The company also offers gluten-free options for all of their treats if needed.

As with many successful businesses, Power Pup Treats was created out of personal necessity. As Christine explains on the business website, “we created our company after our two loveable Pitbulls, Foxy & Zeus started to suffer from severe skin allergies! After countless Vet visits and lab testing, it was determined that most of their allergies were food related. That was my eye opener! I realized that I couldn’t pronounce, and I didn’t know what most of the ingredients were in any of the treats I was buying. It was absolutely heartbreaking to watch my fur babies go through allergic reactions and suffer on a daily basis. So, I started making my own treats and snacks for them”. Hence the beginning of what would become, Power Pup Treats!

Three plus years later, Power Pup Treats’ mission remains the same, to make dogs and their parents happy, by offering all natural ingredient dog treats that taste great while providing nutrition and happiness with every serving!

Power Pup Treats offers a wide variety of tasty & nutritious treats in individual, and multiple serving packages along with cakes and gift baskets for special occasions & holidays. Recently, Christine Karouz of Power Pup Treats was the featured guest on Studio 10 WJAR, the popular afternoon television show hosted by Mario Hilario, Christina Ernie & Krystin Rae.
