This upscale pet shop and grooming service for cats and dogs touts a small, highly selective stock. Cable-knit sweaters, fur-collar parkas, and reflective rainproof ponchos fill the few apparel shelves, while fashionable leashes, collars, dog carriers, beds, bowls, and chew toys make up most of the rest of the diminutive store’s stock. Food is minimal; what edibles there are come in treat (not chow) form from wholesome, natural, lesser-known brands like Sojos and Wagatha’s. A grooming room is tucked behind the register, where pets can get same-day shampoos, trims, and a special blueberry facial that includes a massage and brightening treatment.
