The Barking Muse was created out of pure necessity by Xiannie Peynado. When her Yorkie puppy Deuce was diagnosed with liver dysfunction disorder and skin dermatitis, Xiannie investigated alternative methods of treating her pup in a natural and holistic way. From her research, she created a unique blend of essential oils to treat her pup's skin. She also fed Deuce real food and not manufactured pet food which often contains chemicals. Thanks to Xiannie, Deuce is 5 years old, healthy and thriving today. Word got around about her natural pet products and Xiannie realized that there was a need for natural products for pets made by a pet mom. The Barking Muse is a stellar example of a woman with passion, grit and love for her pet.
