Bone & Biscuit Yonge Sheppard On Connecting With Pet Owners, Animals And The Community
As animal lovers, it was their passion for pets and shopping as a customer at Bone & Biscuit that made them want to join the Bone & Biscuit family.
“Our passion for pets and their wellbeing made us want to open our location. We wanted to be able to educate customers on pet nutrition and work with animals and be able to make a difference in pets’ and owners’ lives. We love that we are connecting with the local community, as we used to be customers ourselves,”says Christopher
Inspired by shopping at Bone & Biscuit stores themselves, they’re looking forward to interacting with customers and their pets in their own store and sharing their experiences and knowledge with fellow pet owners.
“We’re looking forward to making connections with our customers and their pets, and offering them support and our knowledge regarding nutrition and pet care.”
Bone & Biscuit Yonge Sheppard’s Unique ‘Spark’ In The Pet World
For Christopher and Katherine, what made them fall in love with Bone & Biscuit stores, and what made them want to offer that same thing to their local community, was the high-quality customer service and nutrient-dense foods they could offer. It’s something that stood out to them compared to other pet supply stores, and something they know will make their store special to their customers.
“First and foremost, customer service is a big one for us. We want our customers to always feel welcome when entering our store. We take great pride in the products we carry, and stand behind them. We only carry products that we trust and that are full of nutrients. Our staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and always available to help, too. It’s something we’re proud to offer, and we think is unique to Bone & Biscuit,”says Christopher.
Bone & Biscuit Yonge Sheppard’s Furry (And Scaly) Family Members
As to their pets, they have an adorable menagerie of animals, from an adorable dog to a bearded dragon.
“We have a four-year-old bulldog mix named Gordy (who is our store mascot). He loves socializing with dogs and people almost as much as he loves food! We also have a three-year-old Netherland dwarf rabbit named Tortellini. He is happiest when Gordy isn’t bothering him, and when he’s eating hay and greens. Lastly, we have a leopard gecko named Selena and a bearded dragon named Klaus.”
With their family of pets, they love the positivity and joy their pets give them (especially Gordy’s playfulness!) There are so many things they love about being pet owners and having animals in their lives, but for them, it’s the love and fun that their animals bring to their day-to-day lives.
“There are so many positive things to owning a pet, but our favourite (and we do have many) is the fun-loving personality that Gordy has. In a nutshell, we love everything about Gordy, from his playfulness to his curiosity, but most of all his joy and the joy he gives us,”says Christopher.
Finding High-Quality, Natural And Healthy Options For Your Pets At Bone & Biscuit Yonge Sheppard
Of course, as pet owners themselves, they know how important it is to have high-quality, nutrient-dense foods and products for your pets. They want to be able to offer customers what they look for themselves and are thrilled to be able to provide natural, healthy foods and knowledgable customer service.
“First and foremost, we want to provide great customer service as we take that very seriously! We are excited to introduce our customers to all the natural and healthy products that we provide for cats and dogs, as well as offering our knowledge on diet and health for their pets.”

Located in North York’s City Centre, their Bone & Biscuit location has plenty to offer in nearby activities, dog parks, local businesses, and more. Christopher and Katherine are excited that their Bone & Biscuit Yonge Sheppard location is centrally located with great access for their customers and community.
“Being in North York’s City Centre, there is always much to do. It is the perfect mix of urban living with the “comforts” of the ‘burbs. Mel Lastman Square is always buzzing with activities. If you are looking for peaceful settings, there are many parks amongst the residential streets as well as plenty of dog parks, such as Yonge & York Mills dog park, the Willowdale off-leash dog park and the Earl Bales Park to name a few nearby. We’re really excited about our location because it’s so central.”
Sharing Boneified Advice From The Bone & Biscuit Yonge Sheppard Team
And if you’re a new (or experienced) pet owner in need of advice, they’re happy to help and share their knowledge with you.
From which dog food might work for your pup to general advice, they’re always open to help you take care of your pets. For them, pet ownership means putting your pet’s needs first and being open-minded.
“Always put your pet’s needs first and always keep learning and adapting to new information that becomes available. It’s important to remember that having a pet is a huge responsibility and that they need a lot of love and attention. Good pet ownership is not something you achieve but rather something that keeps evolving,”shares Christopher.
