MAKING healthy dog treats is proving to be a booming business for High Wycombe entrepreneur Kyal Chamberlain (17) with his micro-enterprise Kyal’s Doggy Delights making up to 1000 biscuits each week.

Kyal said he started making the dog treats last year for his Siberian Husky Apollo after he had surgery to remove a growth in his mouth.

“I have autism and ADHD and cooking is relaxing and fun for me,” he said.

“Apollo always barked at the door when I did cooking on Tuesdays with my support worker.

“I hadn’t thought about selling them at that stage, but my dog enjoyed them so much that my support worker approached Bolt Coffee Roasters in Hazelmere who agreed to take a sample batch of the dog biscuits.”

Kyal said with the help of his mum he set up a Facebook page and from there the business grew.

“My biscuits are now stocked at Cool Breeze Cafe at Riverside Gardens in Bayswater, one of the largest dog parks, Garden Caf in Guildford and Syd and Phyllis in Midland.

“I also sell them at various markets and dog events.”

Kyal said he had plans to expand his business.

“I want an outdoor kitchen with a bigger oven and dehydrators so I can cook more than three trays at a time,” he said.

“I would also like to have my own cafe one day and have shops sell my treats too.”

Kyal said his confidence had grown since launching his business.

“I used to be shy and not want to talk, but having my business has helped me come out of my shell and drum up more business,” he said.

“I passed my scooter licence in January and I have learnt how to navigate to the places I deliver my treats.

“The best part is making dogs and their owners happy.”

Kyal said he continually modified his recipe to get the best possible product for his canine customers.

“I make 500-1000 biscuits per week as well as birthday cakes and ‘pupcakes’,” he said.

“The biscuits are preservative free, use real meat and I also cater for various dietary requirements; dairy free, egg free, gluten free and vegan.
