In a city where dogs have outnumbered kids for the past 10 years, it’s no wonder canine-centered businesses are popping up all over to help you pamper your pooch. Whether you’re a food aficionado or a fashion-forward shopper, these businesses are here to help you and your pup live your best lives.
For The Foodie
Just Food for Dogs
This California-based business makes freshly cooked food for your dog using human-grade ingredients. Pooches who are picky eaters or have sensitive stomachs are welcome to grab a bite at the company’s new kitchen in South Lake Union.
For The Single Who’s Ready to Mingle
This new dating app helps you find “the one” while making sure that person will play nice with your dog, too. Simply create a joint profile for you and Spike and let the app sniff out your match.
For The Fashionista
Your pup will rule the dog park dressed in designer duds. Owner Paula Munson takes antique or surplus fabrics from the likes of Gucci, Versace and other high-fashion brands and revamps them into stylish, Fido-size threads.
For The Busy Bee
No more sad puppy-dog eyes when you leave home for a grocery trip. Located at 11 stores in Seattle and the Eastside, DogSpot shelters keep your dog cool and secure while you run quick errands—there’s even a Puppy Cam viewable through the app so you can keep an eye on your furry friend while you shop.
