doggy style: only the best for the beast

it took me ages, and i thought i would never find it, but i have discovered the dog shop for me and for this lucky critter.   doggy style, located in soho, has the greatest stuff if you want to keep your dog looking good but not in a frou frou way.  i really have visited a ton of pet stores, and while there is one very fancy one downtown it’s just too over the top. i needed one that had high quality, great design stuff.  i loved everything in doggy style.  from the fantastic selection of collars and leashes with brands like bella bean, gorgeous george, wonderdog. (now if i could just keep ours clean, that is a challenge even though ours are washable). and there are huge dog beds in velvets and corduroys, browns, greens, purples in all graphic patterns  and corduroy.

and the tags were the best. this was my favorite bit of doggy style. real, beautiful handmade engraved sterling dog tags.  i of course couldn’t resist getting one for spello.  too bad i can’t get the government-issued tags to look so good.  doggy style also has an excellent assortment of pricey toys like ugly dolls, sock monkeys, vibram balls and those chewing bones above. so nice not to have them in the standard white, black or “kong” red.

and of course, i totally need new bowls now that this dog will be with me both at work and home, and doggy style has the best ceramic ones around.  they also have bowls from daisy dog studio and harry barker.  they also have all these fancy bowl holders (don’t think i need these) in silver, enamel and even wooden-like fruit boxes which is more for the rustic home setting.   the food selection looked very tasty if you’re into chewing with glass containers full of free range bully sticks, beef tail and curly tendons.  there were organic peanut butter bacon biscuits by little lulus, the stella & chewy’s duck duck goose dinner or the dandy lamb dinner by robby dawg.   given it’s price point, doggy style is not for every day, but i sure will be going there for just a few indulgences now and then.   doggy style, 73 thompson street between spring and broome streets, manhattan, new york, 212.431.9200.
