Below is our recent interview with Elissa Farris, Founder at Bella’s Bark Boutique:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Bella’s Bark Boutique is a small, home-based, women-owned business located in middle Tennessee. The brand is a dog boutique that provides custom gifts for dog lovers and their furry companions, including our exclusive ‘Bark Off’ apparel. As well as all natural, no preservative homemade dog treats and problem-solving dog toys to reduce anxiety and boredom. At its core, Bella’s Bark Boutique’s mission is to create simple, yet impactful, products that inspire pet owners nationwide to bring up their furry friends with as much love as possible.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: In the brand’s most recent news, Bella’s Bark Boutique has launched its brand-new ‘Bark Off’ apparel solar clothing line with UPF50 Protection that earns The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. Empowers everyone to ‘Bark Off’ to negativity and embrace true self! The game-changing solar apparel line was developed to honor the late Sharon Smith, who sadly passed away from melanoma.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: As humans, we are bound to live our lives based on what people would say or think about us at some point. I used to be like that too,but not anymore! Bark Off is a personal promise to expose my life to the possibilities of failure and embrace the test life throws at me with optimism. It constantly reminds me to stand up for my values, make my needs a priority, and never let anyone treat me like I am beneath them, then I realized that the only thing that can hinder me from doing something truly amazing is me! I hope that the ‘Bark Off’ line can inspire others; BARK OFF to any negative thing that is resisting you from embracing your true self! BARK OFF to the toxic people that dust you with their negative energy! BARK OFF and stop letting your energy be stolen, your spirit dampened, and being dragged down! BARK OFF to negative jobs, negative relationships, and negative situations! After all, a wise woman once said, ‘Bark Off!’ and she lived happily ever after.
Q: What can we expect from your company in the next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We have always wanted to reach as many dog lovers as possible for our products to be available. So, in six months, Bella’s Bark would have added more products to the ‘BARK OFF’ line, expanded into the production of offering more custom gifts for owners and their furry friends. Also have our homemade/trustworthy treats available in more states, more flavors, and meet our customers needs.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Bella’s Bark Boutique was formed in memory of my first German Shepherd, Bella. I thought turning our memories into something meaningful could help them live on and help other dogs in need too! The best part! Ten percent of our profits will go to local dog rescue organizations.
Built with passion. Sold with love. We genuinely love what we do and aim to always give our all in everything we do. The passion that comes with owning and raising a dog. Through the creation of simple, yet impactful products we hope to help pet owners nationwide bring up their furry friend with as much love as they possibly can.
