Meet the Staff

Jen • Norwegian/Swedish/German Mix • Visionary / Cheerleader


I started Paws & Pups Bakery in 1998 with my Pomeranian, Toto. I made treats for friends and family just for fun. They’d let their pets choose between my treats and the “leading brand” biscuits, and the dogs always chose mine. A no-brainer! Paws & Pups Bakery has come a long way since then. Our recipe selection has evolved through a lot of trial and error, with help from our taste testers.


Michele • German/French Mix • Creator of Big Ideas / Chief Butt Scratcher


I always wondered why store-bought treats looked and smelled like colorful modeling clay. Then my dogs got really sick from some mass-produced treats. I vowed never to feed my fur babies anything I didn’t trust again. After extensive research and testing, I created recipes dogs LOVE! They prefer all-natural ingredients over treats that resemble plastic. As for colorful treats? Carrots, kale, oatmeal, bacon, and cheese naturally bring vibrant colors.


Ellie Mae • Anatolian Shepherd/Pyrenees mix Mix • Director of Hospitality


I’m the new Director of Hospitality at Paws and Pups, and I couldn’t be more excited to join the team! I’m a one-and-a-half-year-old Anatolian Shepherd/Pyrenees mix who adores everyone. I’m a great listener and take treats so gently. Watching my mom make all the yummy treats is a highlight of my day. I can’t wait to join the Saturday morning routine at the Woodstock Farm Fresh Market. I love everyone!


Kevin • Super Mutt • Director of Marketing


I was adopted from Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue in Kennesaw. As one of 11 puppies, I’m now a playful 2-year-old Aquarius who loves snacking on ice, Paws and Pups cookies, the occasional finger, and my beloved LambChop toy. I enjoy hanging out at Swift Cantrell dog park and Pet Play Place, where I can romp and play to my heart’s content. I’m super cuddly, adore my family (Dad calls me his 'lil buddy), and have a special fondness for the pool. Life is full of fun and love!

Sarah, aka Big Pup • Boxer • Director of Leisure Activities


I’m an 11-year-old Boxer, born and raised on a farm in Kentucky. When I was young and spry, I loved running through the fields with cows and chickens—those were the days! Now, I mostly focus on picking the perfect nap spot, whether it’s the sofa or one of my three cushy dog beds. It’s a tough life, I know. Occasionally, I still enjoy playing with a tennis ball or chewing on a hard bone.


Daisy, aka Lil' Pup • Hound mix • Director of Security


I was born on the same Kentucky farm where my sister Sarah grew up. My Mom was an Aussie Shepherd mix, and my Dad was likely a hound/pit mix. I look a lot like a Coon Hound, but who knows! At 2 years old, I’m full of energy. I love chasing delivery trucks along the fence line and playing with my two dozen tennis balls. Watching Mom bake cookies is a favorite pastime, especially when some roll onto the floor —I ’m the cleanup crew!
