Need a new dog leash and other supplies? Want to buy local? Don’t feel like doing your research?
Have no fear! I’ve done the hard work for you! Here’s my favorite 10 places in the Charlotte area. Check it out:
Dublin Dog1435 W. Morehead Street, Charlotte 28208http://dublindog.com
Dublin Dog originated in Hawaii, and with the owner/creator being very outdoorsy, he wanted to create products that are waterproof, dirt-proof, and durable. Their products are fun and eco-minded, and they look as good as they perform! You can order their products online as well. If you and your furry friend like to hike and swim and be outdoors, Dublin Dog is the place to buy your supplies.
Pet People Highland Creek10018 Benfield Road, Charlotte 28269https://www.petpeoplestores.com/highland-creek.html
Locally owned, Pet People has been around the area for years. The owners support local non-profit animal-related charities. They have everything you need: food, treats, supplies, training accessories, etc. One cool thing they also offer is a self-service dog wash, called SPAW. It makes it easy for customers to bathe their dog, and not get their own homes and bathrooms all messed up! Amazing place, and great prices!
