The top 30 pet supply stores in Toronto by neighbourhood
Pet supply stores in Toronto will have your critter companion feeling fresh, eating well, dressed to the nines and playing with the highest quality toys Toronto has to offer.
Here are my picks for the top pet supply stores in Toronto by neighbourhood.
Located just south of the Annex Theatre on Bathurst, Annex Pet Supplies stocks a nice variety of health-conscious animal foods and products, most of which are locally produced. They also provide delivery services if you live in the area.
Paws & Claws is a one-stop shop for pet food, toys, supplies, grooming, and maybe even a photo with Santa at the holidays. Although the store's not huge, they manage to pack a lot of product onto the shelves, including a great selection of wholesome, organic foods for both dogs and cats.
It may be called The Dog Market, but this well-loved Beaches pet supply store also offers a variety of products for the kitty in your life. That said, with their huge selection of quality dog foods, treats and supplies - as well as obedience training and grooming services - the emphasis here is definitely on Fido.
The pet products, daycare facilities and grooming services at Bloor Street's Woof! are much-loved by customers, but the best reason to support them might be their dedication to animal welfare; more than half the proceeds of all their sales support local animal rescue agencies.
The baked dog cookies at Digsville look so good you'll want to eat them yourself. If you can move past the treats, you'll find an incredible selection of foods, toys and supplies, including high-end clothing for pets that like to get fancy on occasion.
The giant green lizard towering in front of Menagerie Pet Shop isn't the only reason it's a favourite among Cabbagetown pet owners. Their down-to-Earth, knowledgeable staff and huge range of foods and supplies for all manner of pets have had customers coming back since they opened in 1980.
Tucked away under the CityPlace condos on Fort York Boulevard, Pet Social is a full-service groomer, daycare and boutique for dogs and cats. They'll also do home visits if you're out of town and your furry friend needs a pee (or cuddle) break.
Located less than a block east of Broadview Station on the Danforth, Small Wonders Pet Emporium is home to a massive selection of quality products for the furry four-legged creature in your life, including a lot of fun, speciality toys and accessories you won't find anywhere else.
For top-notch pet advice - as well as a nice assortment of supplies and all-natural animal foods - Wag on the Danforth has you covered. This family-run east end gem will always have a treat ready for your fur-baby and an answer ready for your toughest pet parenting questions.
The folks at Urban Dog are about quality all the way - from their grooming treatments to their "playcare" services, expert staff and the premium dry, dehydrated, cooked and raw food products they sell in their boutique.
After taking Fluffy for her next run through Trinity Bellwoods Park, be sure to make a pit stop at The Dog Bowl on your way home. Situated just north of the park, this cute, tidy store may be small, but offers a lot of top-quality products for both dogs and cats.
Tails has recently moved from their former location in the Beaches, but it won't take long for locals around their new East York digs to discover why this pet grooming/supply store has been so well-loved in the past. They've built a reputation for providing high-quality products and great customer service.
Pet Pointe in Etobicoke is a great alternative to the big box pet stores, and well worth supporting. The shop carries a nice selection of toys, treats and food for both cats and dogs, and owners Barby and David are known for going the extra mile with their customer service.
For the furry friend with more discerning tastes, there's Cosmopawlitan, which is part daycare, part pet boutique and part spa, where treatments run the gamut from a basic bath to mohawks and colouring.
Located in the heart of the Junction at High Park Avenue and Dundas Street West, Barks & Whiskers is home to a great selection of toys and supplies, as well as a friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Pet Valu in Kensington Market is located right at the corner of College and Augusta, making it super convenient for a quick stop if you live in the area and your critter companion needs supplies - whether that companion is feline, canine or reptile.
For all-natural treats and food at reasonable prices in the King East area, head to Pet Cuisine & Accessories. Need a doggie babysitter? They also offer daycare and boarding.
"Fancy" is the word at Spaw Boutique, where upscale dogs and cats can enjoy a range of grooming treatments, from a simple hair cut to a "mani and pawdicure." They also sell a nice variety of raw and dehydrated foods.
Rest assured that almost anything you pick up from The Bone House is not only safe for your dog, but safe for the environment. This neat and cute Leslieville pet shop sells only human grade, Earth-friendly foods, supplements and treats.
The Canadian owned Global Pet Foods in Liberty Village offers a great selection of holistic, natural foods, treats and wellness products not only for dogs and cats, but also fish and small animals.
The people at Happy Tails Dog Spa don't just want to give your pet the best products and services they can, they want to teach you to do it yourself. They offer not only pet grooming, but grooming lessons. And on top of the healthy, holistic foods they offer in store, you can also pick up a mix to make them yourself at home.
Adventure and activity awaits your canine companion at Unleashed in the City - a training/boarding/daycare/pet store that's based on the idea that, just like us humans, every dog can benefit from a fun, active lifestyle.
Keep an eye out for the pink and black storefront at the corner of Pape and King's Park Boulevard (just south of Mortimer) and you'll find My Dog Spot, a cute little groomer and boutique that will leave your dog with a shiny coat, and you with a bag full of top quality treats.
If you're local to Roncesvalles, you won't find better than the Kennel Cafe for all your pet parenting needs. The store stocks a wide variety of natural and Earth-friendly products at reasonable prices, and delivery is available for a small fee.
Although they sell a little bit of everything for your canine companion, the biggest draw at Rosedale's Dogfather and Co. might be their huge range of upscale doggy apparel for both practical occasions and those that call for something a little more fashion-forward.
Tucked away at Main and Gerrard in the Upper Beaches, Planet Dog is a well-loved independent shop that's build a 20-plus-year reputation for quality products, grooming services and sound pet advice from their friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Don't let the modest square footage at Helmutt's Pet Supply fool you - the store is packed wall-to-wall with a huge selection of products, discerningly chosen for their quality. They also offer a delivery service, which is free for seniors.
Sit! Stay! Dog Emporium seems more like a cozy hangout than a traditional pet groomer and boutique. Pet owners are welcomed to chill out with a coffee while their canine companions enjoy any number of grooming services, chiropractic treatments or even doggy birthday parties which they'll host for your pooch onsite.
With a huge selection of products (including many that are hard to find elsewhere), it's worth making the trip to visit the Wooftown retail location just south of Summerhill Station on Yonge. But if you can't make it in, be sure to check out their online store.
For Yorkville pets and pet parents with a taste for high fashion, look no further than My Pet Boutique, which offers only the best - and cutest - doggy attire, as well as nice selection of fashionable carriers for when you're on-the-go with your fur-baby.
