Looking for a perfect gift for the pet lover in your life?

So, I was just thinking about the holidays and how much I hate shopping …however, as a dog owner/lover there are a couple of things I would FREAK OUT over if someone gave them to me, so I thought I’d share….a gift card for ANY of these things would be a HUGE hit! (click on logos/picture to visit their websites)

Nicole Mlakar Photography

One glance at her website and blog, and you’ll agree with me that Nicole might just be the best pet photographer you’ve ever seen. We’re so fortunate to have her work hanging in three of our shops and are SUPER excited to add it to the South Lamar shop when it opens. She’s booked for the holidays, but also has gift cards.

Stephanie Nance Studios

This nationally recognized artist has added animals to her portfolio and her work is simply amazing. Quirky, silly and beautiful….her work is timeless!

Nulo Pet Food

This new Austin based company delivers FRESH pet food directly to your front door. My “pack” has been testing it out for the last month and they LOVE it! Imagine giving someone a year of dog food delivered to their front door. You would be loved FOREVER!


One of my favorite pet stores in Austin (they have several locations). They are SUPER helpful and have great products. If your pup has specific needs/food issues, talk to them!

Lofty Dog

Know a pup that has everything? Then Lofty Dog is for you! This downtown shop seriously has some of the cutest pet accessories I’ve seen!

Skillful Paws

They offer canine massage and acupressure…and the results are amazing. From their website: “Dogs, like humans, get muscle tension, tightness and sprains that can lead to pain, headaches and decreased mobility. Dogs don’t complain or ask for a Tylenol. Instead they compensate by using other muscle groups.”

Dirty Dog

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that we also offer gift certificates in any dollar amount. They can be used on any service/product in the shops :)

Other things that pet lovers would consider a GREAT gift: gift certificates for vet care, training, day care, boarding or pet-sitting…..as much as we love these furry friends, they can be EXPENSIVE! I have great recommendations for these things, too, just ask!!
