really cool things for good dogs, cats, and their people



Before food or treats appear on our shelves they must pass a multi-step approval process. We look for foods with a simple list of carefully-chosen ingredients, avoiding any foods with unnamed animal parts, by-products, preservatives and added coloring. Most dogs seem to do better without grain, so the majority of our foods are grain-free.

We buy only from food makers we trust. We question who makes the food and where ingredients are sourced, and we stay on top of that as changes occur in the industry. As a smaller store we can be highly selective in the foods we carry and we only add a new food to our inventory after looking at reviews on Dog Food Advisor and Whole Dog Journal, and researching it thoroughly. We source foods regionally when possible and look for products which carry organic ingredients, and use humane treatment of the animals and humane processing of meats. See the dog food brands we carry.
