Something about the Owners
We both enjoy spending time with our dog’s Dunkin’, Hera and Kyle, but driving into Oregon to get the quality food our Dog’s needed was cutting into our time at the Dog Park.
We looked near and far and decided rather than spend the time driving forever to get quality food we should open a local store and pack it with quality foods and supplies so all animals, and people can eat well, play well, sleep well and live well!
One of the goals of the business was to gather products from companies here in the NW or even better, Vancouver.
We’ve chosen products designed, developed, and manufactured right here in our neighborhood. If we were unable to get a product in the store that was made here in Vancouver we looked for manufactures in Oregon and then slowly moved outward within the US.
We believe in supporting the local economy, every dollar spent here in our community is spent 6-15 times before it leaves the community, and .68 of every dollar spent at a locally owned business stays in the community.
We opened in 2011 in the Historic Downtown Vancouver neighborhood of Uptown Village, we knew we would be happiest in this neighborhood and our dogs love Main Street and most of the shops in Uptown Village are independently owned and those dogs love to shop local! In November of 2014 we moved the store to our new location in the 78th Street Plaza.
We’re both native Washingtonians, we live here in Vancouver, you will probably see us walking the dogs in our neighborhood of Carter Park or enjoying play dates at Ross off leash dog park. Just look for our little logo (Hera) lounging in the sun while Dunkin’ & Kyle run with all the other dogs.
We look forward to helping you and getting to know you and your pets for many years.
