Brayden of Brayden’s PAWfect TreatsMeet Brayden! He is 8 years old and loves animals, helping people, meeting new people, singing, and learning about anything and everything. In 2020 he started Brayden’s PAWfect Treats. He makes cupcakes, cakes, and treats for dogs with homemade ingredients and sells them at various places locally.

His business is about so much more than baking treats for your pets, though. Brayden was diagnosed with autism and ADHD. Brayden’s mom Kayla told us that “since his diagnosis, baking has been a huge relief to both him and myself.” Thanks to his business, Brayden has strengthened his abilities able to meet new people and has made huge improvements in his eye contact and social skills.

Brayden and his mom, Kayla have lived in the St. Cloud area their whole lives, and have a lot of family and friends in the area. They always love meeting new people – and their furry friends! In fact, his favorite part is when people bring their pets to come pick up treats from him.


Although they’ve got a lot of positive feedback about the goodies they make, getting the word out about where and when Brayden will be selling his treats is always tricky! You can follow along and find him on his Facebook page.
