Our Treats Unleashed Story

A little bit about where we came from, who we are, what we do and our passion for pets and their people.

Treats Unleashed started in the summer of 2002 with a batch of Apple Cinnamon Hearts at a kiosk in the mall.

“The idea for Treats Unleashed started when my husband, Ian, and I moved back to St. Louis in 2001 and had a difficult time finding healthy and nutritious pet food and treat options for our dachshunds, Max and Mickey.  We realized that we were not the only ones looking for a better alternative for our pets, so we thought we’d start our own company that focused solely on fresh-baked pet treats and all-natural pet foods.” – Teresa, Owner & Founder

Treats Unleashed started in the summer of 2002 with a batch of Apple Cinnamon Hearts at a kiosk in the mall. It didn’t take long before the whole family got involved by helping paint the first store in Chesterfield! From there, Treats Unleashed has grown to a total of 12 stores over the past 15 years! Today, Treats Unleashed is still 100% family-owned. Teresa’s father spent his career in animal nutrition and helped develop the recipes for all the treats on our treat tables today. Teresa’s sister is the manager at the Chesterfield location, and you will almost always find parents, siblings, nieces and nephews helping at Treats Unleashed events and working in the stores.
