WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
Wonderful new owners at Dashing Dawgs are very friendly and happy to be taking care of all our pups needs. (Cats too I believe)
Always liked this pet store and my little dog Jodie just got an awesome haircut yesterday and looks so cute!
What a treat to have such an amazing shop in beautiful Coal Harbour just steps from the seawall and Stanley Park. The store is fully stocked with the highest quality of human grade raw food, treat, collars, harnesses, leashes and everything in between. They even have these beautifully decorated grain free dog treats gorgeously displayed at the front of the store. You will go home with a few for sure! The new owner did a beautiful job with the store. She’s so sweet and won’t let your dog leave without a treat! If I had a dog that needed grooming…this would be the place as they offer Japanese scissoring! I look forward to the many visits to the store even if it’s just for a treat!
Dashing Dawgs is great!! Took my little ones for a haircut with Mica and they came out looking Fab for the summer!! The price is very consistent, I’ve been back 3 times and all three times I was charged $60.00 for my little pooches (6lbs and 13lbs). Much Better than the old Bark N Fitz and WAAAAAAY Better than Stanley Bark who charged me a lot higher than the quoted price on their website (not to mention that the groomer at Stanley Bark was horrible!)
Mica is very meticulous, caring and very punctual. Highly recommend her!
Doggy Love Given Here! This store was opened for the love of two dogs and now is loved by many dogs!
New Ownership is amazing! Friendly staff, welcoming store to dogs of all sizes with an updated selection of food, treats, and toys to choose from. Have your dogs picture taken, or just stop in to say Hello. My dog Cali never misses the chance to stop by for a snack and some cuddles! Thanks Dashing Dawgs and welcome to the neighbourhood!

VANCOUVER DOG/CAT AND GROOMING TIPS
FOOD COST VS. VET BILLS
Let’s keep this simple, feeding raw whole foods is really an investment in your pet’s health and reduced vet bills. Whether you have a pet with health problems or want to prevent them in the future a raw diet can reduce chances of serious illness. It can also help animals recover from illness, allergies or it’s severity because it supports cellular function on a higher level than processed foods can.
4 Steps for Good Oral Care
First – Brushing
Good oral care for dogs and cats starts with the owners’ commitment to brush. That’s right old-fashioned teeth bruising is your very best defense against oral disease just like it is in people. Choose a soft bristle tooth brush and pet specific tooth paste because they will swallow what you put in their mouth. Then brush teeth and gums, practice makes perfect.
Second – Diet
From a diet perspective them most effective diet for keeping a dog healthy and their teeth clean is raw food. If you can’t go raw there are fantastic grain-free options of dry and wet foods.
Third – Chews
A chewing dog has healthier teeth than one that doesn’t. We encourage your dog to chew beef back strap to maintain health teeth and gums.
Cat’s aren’t big chewers so you may consider a certified water additive like Bluestem. This is a Canadian certified product good for cats and dogs.
Fourth – Make it a Routine
Despite our best intentions, brushing a dog or cat’s teeth has its challenges. Target a minimum of 3 days a week and put it into your routine and it will become theirs.
A healthy mouth makes for a healthier and happier fur baby!
- Sit and stay
It’s not always easy to get your dog to sit and stay and it’s something you can work on with your pet. If your dog doesn’t sit and stay naturally it’s something you can work on and then build more distance for the ultimate shot. When researching for this article we found a pooch selfie gadget, check it out (http://geniusgadget.com).
- What’s in the background
The background can make or break a good photo. Make sure you take a moment, and make sure that your background is clear and then snap that picture! –no telephone poles please 🙂
