Your bestie don’t need no man, but she did need a woman’s best friend. You want to spoil her new pup rotten and rub his belly for hours on end. But for now, just settle for a pet gift card… Then get back to scratching.
Why give a gift card and not another bone or chew toy? Well, humans deserve choice, and so does your bestie’s new pooch. With a pet gift card, the pup can browse the dog boutique and select the bed, toy, or accessory that suits them best.
For this edition of Dear Giftbartender, we’ve scoured the country for some of the best local boutiques for pets. So whether it’s a bulldog from Brooklyn or a Boston Terrier, this new pooch is going to be one hip hound.
Boston: Fish & Bone
Located in the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston, Fish & Bone is the perfect place for the pampered pooch. From snuggly sweaters to fashionable collars (and adorable bags for mom), this shop has everything to ensure this pup wins best in show.
Stocked with all new-dog essentials like toys and bedding and the highest quality dog foods around, Dogaholics is the Chicago pet owner’s one-stop shop for all things bringing-home-puppy. Did we mention they also bake pup-friendly cakes and ice cream for your dog’s birthday “pawtys”… Obsessed.
Dallas: Lucky Dog Barkery
For the hungry, hungry dog. Lucky Dog Barkery has comfy beds and leashes and collars, of course, but it’s the selection of delicious food that sets this dog boutique apart from the rest. Read: Grammy’s Pot Pie and Sam’s Yams. We think mom might not be able to resist either.
LA: The Modern Dog
Conveniently situated on Abbot Kinney in Venice, The Modern Dog is the perfect place for a dog owner (with her accompanying four-legged bestie) to stop in for a trendy treat during an all-day shopping excursion. If only so that the pooch can be half as chic as mom.
New York: Bitch New York
For the spoiled bitch who has it all. No, not your friend… Her new four-legged family member. From designer clothes to custom collars and the softest luxury beds, Bitch New York is, like, sooo fetch.
P.S. We’re not gonna stop trying to make ‘fetch’ happen. #TeamGretchen
