Great variety of dog chews, treats, supplements and walking gear. My only complaint is that the inventory is very crowded and unorganized.

Everything a dog lover loves. Fun mix of toys and wild and crazy "gnaw bar" treats. Top brands of healty food. Knowledgeable, friendly staff. Must do stop whenever you are in Del Ray.

Great business! Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and they have a wide variety of items that are hard to find. Also, probably obvious, but location is dog friendly. Our pups like going to the store with us.

They are super helpful. They have been offering delivery of supplies during COVID-19. Inventory is priced competitively with other dog stores. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable!

The dog store was super helpful in identifying food and treats for our puppy that are allergy friendly for our small children, spending time reviewing ingredients, and getting back to us on available options. We also received advise on choosing a vet, etc. Thanks!

This is a fun store to visit when in Del Ray. They DO love the dogs and there always seems to be new things to see and learn about. The windows are always themed and it makes for a fun stop for all ages. The outdoor patio was also a fun and unique spot to share treats with our dog after our visit.

Great store. Nice, helpful people. The dogs can't walk down the street now without going in.

this is the best dog store in Alexandria by far....the times that I have been in I am always greeted by Jiff,I think he's Swedish maybe..a jovial bespectacled fellow who is always willing to steer me to the right food and such for my little poo-poo...I only really shop here because of him..its a little out of the way for me but he makes it worth the trip..a pleasure to stop in every time he's there...his knowledge far exceeds dogdom... he is a human encyclopedia of gotta love the guy! top notch,highly recommend! !UPDATE! no manager Jiff then there is no customer service....I went in this week and the unperson able robot salesperson trash talked the old boy...i could read into the small minded small business "politics" a mile away..from what I could piece together sounds like he got a better job offer somewhere else and the owner took things personally,one of "those kind" of bosses..all I know is i will never step foot in the store again...the atmosphere is very stale and negative without the guy,also seems a bit messy and disorganized now ..hopefully he was scooped up by the competition down the avenue and puts em' out of business!

You won't find a better place for your puppy. They love them as if they were their own. It's like being in a indoor dog park but only better. Because all dogs go through an evaluation so you can rest assured that all the other dogs are friendly. They are well supervise. If you board your dog here. why you're away they actually sleep in the room with the staff member they watch TV as if they were at home .Best place ever. They get to play with all their other friends while you're away. It's like a mini vacation for your dog.

Nice boutique, staff very unfriendly. We brought our dog for our first visit to the store today and the 2 women working never spoke a word to us! No hello or goodbye, nor did they acknowledge the Dog. Very disappointing visit. No intentions of returning due to such poor service.

The place is really nice looking and had some great stuff, but the women running the store on Sunday, July 31, 2016 was extremely unfriendly. I have managed a boutique store before, and if she were my employee, i would have fired her. We would've bought more and probably become regular patrons if she even tried to help us or respond with words when we tried to talk to her instead of just pointing and then looking away from us. Really disappointing, especially for a dog store where you'd think staff would be pleasant and at least mildly enthusiastic. There are better dog stores around where the people actually seem to like dogs.
