We're still big fans of shopping IRL. Shopping online is great and all, but sometimes you just want the experience of stepping into a store and seeing a product for yourself. That's especially true for our dogs, where we can combine shopping with an afternoon outing and quality time. Here are some of our favorite dog boutiques around New York City. All of them will change your perception of what a dog boutique 'should' be like.

Love Thy Beast — With locations around the city, Love Thy Beast is the ultimate dog boutique classic. Whether near Grand Central or the East Village, you’ll find a variety of super unique toys, food bowls, treat dispensers. Everything in there feels perfectly curated and meticulously designed. Their cult favorite product? Their branded totes and carriers.

Canine Styles — We’ve already raved about Canine Styles for their grooming services, but now it’s time to rave about their boutique and product selection. They’ve been in business since 1959, and though their product selection is vast on all dimensions, they really stand out in wellness products. Because they also offer grooming services, you can be sure the adjacent grooming products are to die for.

Dog & Co — Located right next to Central Park on the West Side, Dog & Co carries a bit of everything from sweaters to toys to treats. And you can be sure that everything in there is perfectly selected and curated. We personally love their tailored bundled collections for totally unique gift ideas.

Max-Bone — For a truly upscale experience, look no further than Max-Bone. Max Bone is the ultimate in luxury dog lifestyle brands. Every single element of being in that store is thoughtfully designed with you and your dog in mind with the ultimate balance of fashion, function and design. You’ll find totally unique, one-of-a-kind products. Their Soho store never disappoints and if you ever find yourself on the West Coast, you can visit their LA sister store.

Zoomies — A West Village mainstay, Zoomies has the ultimate personalized and neighborhood feel to it. The space is both warm and inviting while also being chic and aspirational. It’s New York’s first Biscuit Bar for dogs and also carries a variety of collars, treats, toys and wellness products. The co-owners used to own a retail space in Paris, and you can feel some of those elements throughout the Zoomies space.

Coming soon: Wild One — We’ve been anxiously awaiting the opening of Wild One’s Nolita boutique. COVID has had other plans, but we know that once this place opens, the Wild One boutique will seamlessly fit into the neighborhood.
