Young Americans Center for Financial Education is so pleased to introduce Julia Doolittle, the 9-year-old owner of Olaf’s Dog Cookies and winner of the 2020 Spotlight on YouthBiz Stars business competition in the 6-11 age category.

It has only been 8 months since Julia started her dog business, as a solution to calm and entice her untrained dog during their walks with her older sister. The cookies come in two dog-approved flavors: pumpkin peanut butter and beef.

In addition to her business sense, Julia’s passion impressed the judges. “Some people start a business because it’s a good profit maker, but I can tell you started your business because you love dogs and that is super important,” commented one judge.

Working with her mentor Jena Hausmann, President and CEO of Children’s Hospital Colorado, Julia’s goal is to improve her marketing tactics and grow her business this year. Eventually, Julia hopes that Olaf’s Dog Cookies are available in every store for every dog lover.
