25-year-old Slovenian journalism graduate Nastja Verdnik, who was struggling to find a job, decided to turn her love for dogs into a business and has opened the country's first bakery for dogs.
Her shop, "Hov-Hov", which is Slovenian for Woof-Woof opened in Maribor earlier this year. It sells hand-made biscuits, muffins, cakes and tarts specifically prepared for dogs.
The cakes and biscuits Verdnik makes come in various shapes and flavours, with different types of meat including venison, horse meat and lamb. She also makes tuna and vegetarian options.
"The response was really surprisingly good, which led us to plan expansion to other places in Slovenia. By the end of this year we expect to open a shop in Ljubljana city centre," she said.
