Cody Rinkor is only 14, but he's already the owner and head chef of his own company, Cody's Canine Cookies.
"I started out baking treats for my own dogs, and soon realized that I could start my own business while providing a great product," the California teen says.
Cody's entrepreneurial spirit is just as generous. A quarter of every purchase benefits the Marin Humane Society to, as Cody says, "help take care of the animals, until they are in a home of their own."
The homemade doggie treats are available in four flavors: plaque buster bones, flea fighter fingers, low-fat biscuits, and Gracie's tasty cheese treats – named after one of his four furry food testers. "I let my dogs try them and they couldn't get enough of them," Cody says about Gracie and his three other four-legged helpers Tucker, Maverick, and Wrangler.
