Where to Shop for Your Overly Spoiled Pets In Dallas

If you don’t have a pet, you probably don’t understand the obsessive amount of time, money and energy that goes into taking care of a ridiculously spoiled dog or cat. Pets are like family members, which means that they need the same organic food, fancy toys and pampering experiences that their owners require, cost be damned.

In most cases, pets are as spoiled as children, which means looking beyond the mass-market crap sold at chain pet stores for fancier goods. After all, little Spike or Fido only deserves the best. Should you find yourself in need of raw, organic cat food, “doggie couture” or a pet facial, these nine spots will surely fit the bill.

This is basically the Whole Foods of pet stores, thanks to its focus on holistic foods and treats that probably taste better than the fast food that you’re consuming on the regular. You can also find a specialized bowl for your “whisker fatigue” (whatever the hell that is) afflicted cat, or finally get your badly behaved mutt a little home training all under one roof.

Sometimes, your dog is just as deserving of a treat as you are, which means that you should head to The Upper Paw for a freshly baked dog cookie post-haste. This spot also prides itself on offering the most stylish dog outerwear, in case your pet is in need of a fresh new look.

Fancier than any human boutique, right?

Jack & Jill Pet Market
4022 Oak Lawn Ave.
This Oak Lawn pet shop is almost indiscernible from any toy store for human children, and the goods are equally pricey. Healthy food, “k9 couture” and other wares are on offer, and you should probably go ahead and take out that extra credit card because you’re going to find plenty of adorable stuff that little Spot simply can’t live without.

Those leashes tho.

Lucca Bella Doggie Spa & Boutique
2512 Oak Lawn Ave.
If this place were for humans, it would probably be too fancy for you. Here, you can treat your garbage-loving dog to blueberry-vanilla facials, mud baths or some trendy pink highlights. The attached boutique offers pet couture and the spa products used in the salon, just in case your pet gets a little high-maintenance and starts demanding blueberry facials at home.

If buying locally is your bag, get thee to GreenPet in Bishop Arts. This shop is packed full of goods (think collars, leashes and bespoke dog beds) crafted in Dallas and the surrounding areas, along with Green Pet’s own line of treats that are irresistible for pups. As a bonus, the shop dogs are extra cute and friendly.

The groomers at Urban Dogg are experts at turning your shaggy little mutt into a a purebred’s doppelganger, but if you’re too cheap to pay for someone else to bathe your dog, you can shell out significantly less cash for Urban Dogg’s self-service dog wash stations. It’s infinitely better than destroying your own bathroom at home.

Homegrown Hounds
 1722 N. Hall St.
Pets sometimes have sensitive stomachs or allergies that require specialized food, and that’s exactly what Homegrown Hounds is known for. The grain-free food and treats prepared by Homegrown Hounds are (probably) edible by humans, but your dog will go apeshit when he realizes that you’ve purchased a specially decorated cake just for him.

If you’re as picky about what your pets eat as you are about your own food, Woof Gang Bakery offers the equivalent of paleo, organic fare for your critters. The toy selection is more impressive than any kids store, and you’ll find a unique selection of collars, leashes and “doggie spa” products to fully pamper your pup.

Urban Paws
2526 Elm St.
Living in downtown can be a pain for dog owners thanks to high-rise living, but Fido will get plenty of attention at Urban Paws’ doggie daycare. While you’re working, your pup can run all over Urban Paws’ 10,000 square feet of play space, get groomed or bathed, or learn a few new tricks. When you’re done, you can score dog food, all-natural grooming products, and other necessities from the Paws Shop.
