Bosco and Roxy's Inc.

MPP Kathryn McGarry and Jaymie Crook

Thanks to Bosco and Roxy's, Rover has a lot more motivation to roll over and shake a paw. The brainchild of Michelle and Jaymie Crook, Bosco and Roxy's produces premium dog treats. Their hand-decorated gourmet cookies, bones stuffed with "German Shepherd Pie" and frozen yogurt cones are a hit with pet owners and their furry companions. Sales of the products doubled between 2012 and 2013, hitting $1.3 million. And with retailers like Bed, Bath and Beyond, PetSmart, Pet Valu and Global Pet Foods taking notice, those numbers are expected to double in 2014. Since the company sources 90 per cent of its ingredients in Ontario, local dairies, grain farmers and even a freezer manufacturer are also benefiting from that tail-wagging success.
