Best of New York 2007 • Shopping

Best Non-Cutesy Pet Store

  • Doggystyle

    100 Thompson St., 212-431-9200

    Look past the name to the selection: asymmetrical scratching posts that look like Frank Gehry might have had a hand in the design, dog bowls that wouldn’t embarrass on a human’s breakfast table, plus ergonomically correct feeders and easy-to-use, buckle-free harnesses. Two-dog owner Andy Schulman is so passionate about utilitarian design that she creates her own products, like 2Twelve messenger bags ($130), which distributes a pet’s weight evenly for more comfortable transporting, and fleece-lined coats with reflective trim ($80) for safer nighttime walks.
