Ever thought of going to a dog boutique? Buying a new article for your wardrobe can be tough, but at least you have a plethora of shops and brands to choose from. Your dog however – well, things are a little tougher for those with multiple legs. But fear not! We have scoured the great Canadian west to bring you some of the best Canadian Dog Boutiques to cater your furry friend’s fashion tastes.
BC Dog Boutiques
Bark, Bath, & Beyond – Victoria
Apart from having a name that is not only reminiscent of Buzz Lightyear and the retail giant/maze that is Bed, Bath, & Beyond, this small, yet hyper functional, pet boutique will cater to your every need. Unlike the retail giant, Bark, Bath, & Beyond was lovingly founded by Tamara and her husband Philip, almost 9 years ago. Since then, it has been a very successful, family-run business that makes sure that pets come first. Bark & Bath focuses on carrying local, and environmentally friendly products of the highest quality. Their grooming staff is fairly top notch as well, providing gentle and qualified care, and concentrates on the well being of your furry friend at all times. Make sure to drop by the next time your in Victoria, located at 2041 Oak Bay Ave.
Ball & Biscuit – Vancouver
Located on the hustle & bustle of 532 E Broadway, Ball & Biscuit is a friendly reprise. Upon entry, you may be greeted by the resident pooch, affectionately named PorkChop, who is also the self-proclaimed mascot of the boutique. We didn’t have the heart to say otherwise. Inside, you will find a huge variety of dog food, treats, clothing, & accessories, not to mention dog grooming and a fun little day care! Some of their best selling items are the high-end toys from Westpaw & dog harnesses made by Ruffwear. They even stock some fun, novelty beer toys! Make sure to visit their website for more info on the above, as well as to book their grooming service.
Paws on Cook – Victoria
Open, bright, & airy with lots of cool products Paws on Cook is a classic dog boutique. It is an easy stop for any day, conveniently named and located on 359 Cook St, where urban meets west coast. Paws is a locally-owned pet supply, focusing on on providing healthy diet solutions for cats and dogs by keeping up on the latest research and news as well as finding unique apparel, toys, and supplies. Every effort is made by the staff in order to be eco-friendly, ethically conscious, and feature products found as close to home as possible. Even their motto is easy to get behind, “Sit. Stay. Healthy Paws, Play!”
Pawsh Dog Spa – Vancouver
While the Pawsh Dog borders that fine line between dog spa and dog boutique, we felt compelled to include them in our list. Their top-notch service, and wonderful community reception could not be ignored. Since opening in 2006, Pawsh has been conistently voted as one of the top spas & boutiques in the city. Additionally, they have won the “Best of Vancouver” award, hosted by the Georgia Straight, six separate times. Centrally located at 80 Smithe St, Pawsh is not only easy to get to, but also provides you the confidence that your dog will trot on our look, and definitely smelling, better than you.
Fox & Tux – Edmonton
Fox & Tux Pet Boutique is the place to go if you’re looking to spoil your kitties and pooches. Clean, organized, and with helpful staff, shopping for your furry friend can’t get much easier. They are very much in-tune with the local community, and are proud to support small businesses, carrying a variety of local and Canadian products. Their featured product are some amazing handmade leather collars and leashes that are made by DogDog Goose, which is based out of St. Albert, AB. The leather collars and leashes are of thick, hand-dyed, premium quality cow leather with sturdy accent hardware. All dyes & stains used are vegetable based, and are non-toxic.
