If you want to support awesome local doggy businesses, I know just the places!
Doggy supplies & Services:
An awesome little store near Shubie Park with delicious treats, fun toys, and all sorts of other goodies! Ruby LOVES the liver treats here.
Katie Hart runs this wonderful company, offering dog walks, training, and group hikes! She's incredibly kind, well-versed in dog training, and loves her own pups to pieces.
This place is fantastic. It's a doggy daycare for small dogs, and it's located in an adorable and super chic building on Gottingen Street. I was honoured to photograph handsome Chester this fall, whose mum founded the daycare - you can see his photos in the gallery! Now the daycare is run by new owner, Morgan Clattenburg.
A fantastic training program with locations in Halifax, Bridgewater, the valley, and Stratford (PEI). Any dog can be trusted off-leash after completing this training - it's possible. Contact Camellia Saunderson for help in the valley!
