Reese and Charlie are Raw fed and right now enjoy Carnivora Lhama patties, it keeps them healthy and their coats look fantastic. Favorite treats are lamb pizzle sticks from Open Range, we had to move them up a shelf! Favorite toy, the Wobble Ball, because it dispenses treats!

Oxbows Off Leash Dog Park is close by, we often have pets and their owners stop in for treats, balls or Doggy ice cream on their way to or from the park.

11. What is the best advice you could give to new pet owners?

Start your new pet off on the right foot with with a raw food diet or a great quality kibble. Healthy treats and toys and games for stimulation are a must as well. Socialization is important as well  and we welcome your new fur baby to our store.

Thanks Josh!

  • Love this place! My brother shops here all the time for Ares, his Bernese. Recently I went in to convert our family dog (Little Leroy, a Boston Terrier/Pug aka BUG) over from kibble to raw and I believe it was Candice who helped me. She was very helpful and I appreciated her knowledge and advise very much. Thank You!! see ya soon 🙂

  • Love the staff and all the knowledge they possess. Owners and stayy are dog lovers like we are. Only want the best foods for your fur babies.
