Kids make all-natural dog treats for farmer's market

Nancy White

If your dog loves treats (and what dog doesn’t?) then two kids in Cohasset want to meet you. The founders of Doggie Delights, Owen Kefallinos and Grace Gaumer, are baking up fresh, all-natural dog treats and selling them at the Cohasset Farmer’s Market. 

More than just a fun summer business, Owen, a sixth-grader, and Grace, a fifth-grader, are working to raise money for the Scituate Animal Shelter. Already the business endeavor of Doggie Delights has been able to donate $127 to the local shelter that serves Scituate, Cohasset, Hingham and Hull and has a goal to donate $500. 

The project started off when Owen received the dog bone recipe book from his mother’s friend. He made one of the book’s treats and tested it out on his lab-mix dog, Athena. She loved it.
