Washington D.C. Pet Stores to Spoil Your Fur Baby this August

It’s no secret that Americans love their pets – even during the pandemic last year, Americans spent a whopping 103 billion on our pets! While that seems like a hefty sum, any pet owner can agree that every cent is worth it when it comes to your furry friend. With two pet holidays coming up this month – August 17th is National Black Cat Day and August 26th is National Dog Day – take the opportunity to get a little sumthin’ sumthin’ for your fur baby at one of these local pet stores.

Howl to the Chief – With a distinctly appropriate D.C. pun as it’s name, Howl to the Chief specializes in natural and holistic pet food, raw foods and foods for small animals. Located just 10 minutes from your 1331 Maryland apartment, you’ll find a comparable selection here than you would at your big box pet stores. Also selling toys, treats and pet accessories for their bi-pawtisan customers, Howl to the Chief is a must-visit for any D.C. pet owner.

Chien de Luxe – Sometimes the name says it all for a business – with how the French say “Luxurious Dog”, you know this Washington D.C. pet store is as high-end as it can get for your furry loved ones. Located in the Palisades neighborhood, this luxury pet store has been in business since 2013 selling premium dog and cat food, toys, collars, accessories and just about anything you can imagine with a pet theme. You can even find some luxury items for yourself – albeit, as long as they have a paw-print motif.
