This Young Entrepreneur Has One Goal, to Make Dogs Happy.
Grace Jagler, who has Down syndrome, had difficulty finding a job she’d enjoy.
Grace’s family had her focus on her passions instead.
She loves the family’s three rescue Schnauzers and giving them treats.
Originally, Grace planned to work at a butcher who makes freeze-dried treats.
But having Grace be her own boss would allow her to work at her own pace and hours.
Gracie’s Doggie Delights was born and now has thousands of online customers and two dozen retail locations.
Grace runs day-to-day operations by weighing, packaging, labeling and assembling orders.

Grace looks at the photos of her “G-dogs” nightly from thousands of customers.
