Daisy’s Doghouse came to be very quickly over the last few months. It has been a dream of mine to have a store for our pets and incorporate my love for our community and passion for the artistic people we know into it. When 1448 Hertel became available, John (husband and best friend) and I decided it was now or never. Perfect location, perfect time in the city’s history, and we know that animal lovers take good care (maybe, spoil a little) of their companions.
I wanted to make our space comfortable, welcoming and fun with products that are design-driven, made by locals, cause-related and tasty. I think we did that. But we are open to our customers’ thoughts and suggestions. We are already looking for new products to carry and foods to get into stock.
I had this idea for the “Hounds of Hertel” wall – pictures of the pets that visit the store – this picture is the wall as it stands just 5 days after opening. I couldn’t be happier to meet all these beautiful animals…(and their humans). I am so lucky!
