Is this the most fashionable pet supply retailer in the world? We’d never be able to answer that, of course, but it certainly ranks there with Manchester’s most stylish, and a quick look at Dog Shop’s Instagram page is enough to quickly prove that. Packed with products your pooch simply can’t do without, this Tib Street store takes its responsibility to the city’s K-9s very seriously, which is no surprise considering this corner of town has historically been home to a concentration of pet shops — so consider this a case of keeping up with tradition. Focusing its ranges on sustainable items, health-conscious accessories, and treats packed with all the goodness a person’s best friend needs, the address becomes a hive of activity over the weekend, as four and two-legged alike descend to peruse the abundant selections on offer.
Priding themselves on stocking responsibility sourced, premium products and working with smaller, independent brands, the difference is profound. Just ask your furry friend next time they bite down on a Premium Antler Chew, Peanut Butter Cookie, or Sweet Potato Bite. Or when they next have a chance to be carried around town in a hold-all that’s seemingly made just for them, like the royalty they most definitely are. All of which is before we come to the vast choice of toys available, from the ultra-hard wearing Jawables, designed to look like brutish bulls, to friendly aliens, watermelon slices and wise, rotund owls. Simply put, you’ll struggle to find anywhere that will make your bestie happier.
