About Us

My passion for animals began over 24 years ago when my Bichon, Ivan, came into my life.  I had been out of college only a few years and couldn’t find a career path that I found rewarding.  I went from job to job trying to find something that I would be happy doing.  One day, I sat down and made a list of all the things that interested me or that I was passionate about.  As I made my list, Ivan looked up at me. I smiled and realized that helping animals brought me great joy.  I started working as a receptionist with the intent to become a Veterinary Technician.  What I learned was that I really loved building relationships with the pets and their owners without physically working on the pets.

After more than 11 years of working with clients, veterinarians, and support staff I saw how passionate people are toward their pets.  I realized I’m not the only one that treats their pets as if they are family members!

I decided to combine my love of animals with my second passion in life, cooking.  I began making treats for my coworkers and staff for holidays and special occasions.  I loved knowing I could bring happiness to other’s pets.  My 3 beautiful Bichons; Ivan, Capt. Morgan and Wrigley, have been happy to taste test new treat creations!  So with the support of my family and friends, I created Yappy Hour Bakery.

I hope your furry friends enjoy them as much as mine do!
