We've gone international!

We've gone international!

It's official, Dope Dog has gone international!

We are super excited to announce our very first international retail partner, Smoochy Petz. This Canadian shop carries a fantastic selection of chic and unique products for pets and pet lovers. They work with vendors and artisans from all over the globe for a great mix of items, many of which are handmade - not stuff you will find just anywhere!

Learn more about our favorite Canadian pet store in our interview with their founder, Debbie.

What makes the pets/customers in your city unique?

Toronto is a very dog friendly city, you’ll always see dogs walking and riding the subway everywhere with their humans. We have many great off-leash parks and recreation areas. People here definitely treat their pets as family. =)

What products/trends have your customers been really into lately?

Handmade sweaters, warm chic coats and certainly CBD.

Do you have any pets / special company mascots?

We actually have 3 company mascots- Annie & Chase (dogs) and a cat, Happy. Annie is a 15 year old brown shihpoo, (and she uses CBD’s for her arthritis). Chase is an 11 year old terrier/poodle mix, and Happy is a 19 year old black & white tuxedo cat.

What inspired you get into the pet business?

One simple answer- our love of animals. It’s our calling, not just a business and we wanted to do something where we can give back. We donate a percentage of sales to various animal rescues

What's the one piece of advice you would give a fellow business owner?

    Follow your dream, don’t give up and always be flexible to turn on a dime.

    Thanks so much to the Smoochy Petz team for making Dope Dog products available to our friends in Canada. Shop now at http://smoochypetz.com/ and stay up to date on Instagram @smoochypetz
